Mayor Linda Oliver of West Union, SC is facing scrutiny for a completely innocent dogma-shrouded bigotry. Earlier this week, Linda took to the interwebs to let the world know exactly how she feels:
“What’s it gonna take to get these queers to realize they don’t need a piece of paper. God will not bless their union because he plainly speaks against queers in the Bible. Want to cover your queer with insurance? Buy a policy. Want your queer to get your stuff when you die? Make a will.”
This homophobic rant, for some inexplicable reason, angered the public so much so that a “Recall West Union S.C. Mayor Linda Oliver” page was created–can’t imagine why…
Oliver defends her position that is totally based in a couple of cherry picked passages of the Bible and not her own prejudices:
“I got lambasted because I quoted the Bible and stuff like that on Facebook, and that’s the way I feel.”
I want to see the part of the Bible that talks about “queer insurance.”
She feels she is being crucified…because she’s following Jesus. Her feelings toward, as she terms it, “queers,” a stems from how she was raised. She didn’t mean any harm., She just doesn’t want gay marriage rammed down her throat. It’s that simple. She just has not, in her lifetime, developed the ability to exercise rational thought! Frankly, I don’t see her issue: Churches perform “weddings.” A “marriage” is a legal contract.
