It is the gay lobby that cherry picks

Letter to the editor

Having read Harold Ohayon’s letter (February 5), could I be permitted to make the following observations?

As a Jew Mr Ohayon presumably does not accept the New Testament. If he did he would realise that dietary restrictions have been cancelled, (Acts 11 v 9; 15 v 20); the Sabbath has been changed from the seventh to the first day,(Acts 20 v 7; Cor 16 v 2); and that homosexual practices are condemned; (Rom 1 vs 26 & 2; 1Cor 6 v9; Jude v 7).These references are by no means exhaustive.

The Ashers supporters are therefore not ‘cherry picking’ the Bible.

Indeed any cherry picking is the work of the homosexual lobby, who presumably are trying to brainwash people with scant Biblical knowledge that the Bible does not condemn the sin of homosexual practices.
