Israeli Prime Minister Expresses Support for Homosexuality on Knesset’s ‘LGBT Rights Day’

Netanyahu-compressed(Jerusalem Post) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu showed his support on the Knesset’s first designated LGBT Rights Day on Tuesday.

Netanyahu rarely appears in the legislature on Tuesdays, a day on which it usually does not hold important votes, but he arrived specially to participate in LGBT Rights Day, during which discussions of the topic were held in the plenum and committees.

The prime minister briefly addressed the plenum: “I know that there were important and lengthy discussions today, and I came here in the middle of my schedule, which was no less busy, to say one sentence to the members of the LGBT community: ‘Every man was created in the image of God.’ That is the idea brought by our nation to mankind thousands of years ago, and it is the principle that must guide our national lives today.”

    ‘Every man was created in the image of God.’

    True. God also commanded that homosexuality is an abomination against him. Btw, Jews were/are persecuted because of disobedience against God and not accepting Christ. (Nehemiah 9; 2 Chronicles 10:19)

      Today’s Jews are under a curse. They said: (if you recall) “Let HIS BLOOD be on US.” The chosen people now are those who obey GOD and acknowledge HIS SON. There is only one group of Chosen; and that is God’s people.

        Anything homosexuals don’t like must be connected to Hitler. Their brains tend to think in very simple terms.

      they don’t read the Old TEstament they read the Talmud.
      Universal Jewish Encyclopedia (1943):

      The Jewish religion as it is today traces its descent, without a break, through all the centuries, from the Pharisees. Their leading ideas and methods found expression in a literature of enormous extent, of which a very great deal is still in existence. The Talmud is the largest and most important single piece of that literature … and the study of it is essential for any real understanding of Pharisaism.
