It used to be that every Christian supported the killing or at least
the imprisonment of those committing sodomy, the abominable and
detestable crime against nature. Gradually, Christianity became weaker
and weaker and people realised that the Bible is a load of crap; or in
other words, those parts of the Bible not in keeping with secular
moral standards were redefined as mere stories rather than
non-negotiable commands from God. As a result of this shift, and only
in the last few decades in the West, the sodomy laws have mostly been
repealed. The same has occurred in relatively moderate Islamic
countries such as Indonesia and Turkey, and will also occur in other
Islamic countries if they become increasingly secularised. History
suggests that secularisation is the long term trend, and such
phenomena as the rise of fundamentalist Islam and, in the US,
fundamentalist Christianity will only be temporary aberrations.
