OCCUPIED JERUSALEM: An ultra-Orthodox member of Israel's Parliament on Wednesday blamed homosexuals for last week's earthquake that shook his country and the region.
Speaking at a parliamentary committee on preparedness for quakes, Shas MP Shlomo Benizri lashed out at homosexuality, considered an abomination under Jewish law and in its religious text, the Gemara.
"We are looking for earthly solutions, how to prevent them," Benizri said. "I have another way to prevent earthquakes. The Gemara says that one of the reasons earthquakes happen - which the Knesset [Parliament] legitimizes - is homosexuality."
"God says you shake your genitals where you are not supposed to and I will shake my world in order to wake you up," he added.
shake our genitals?
um. okay. sure.
i've heard of earth-shattering sex in the metaphoric sense...hell, i am happy to say i've even had some of it myself...that's right...
but i had no idea that our unique brand of sexual expression could literally shake the earth. i mean...i suspected.
but now there's proof.
we are somethin'.
