Israel Votes Down Homo Rights—Again

March 3, 2016 in Middle East · 7 Comments

The Israeli parliament—the Knesset—has once again definitively rejected a raft of laws promoting “marriage equality” for homosexuals, lesbians, and “transgenders,” even as the Israel-supporting Jewish lobby in America is at the forefront of promoting those very same laws in the US and elsewhere.

As reported by the Haaretz newspaper in Israel, the Israeli parliament last week voted down a number of bills promoting “LGBT rights.”

The defeated bills include measures to establish civil unions, provide government benefits to the same-sex partners of fallen soldiers, prohibit homosexual conversion therapy, and mandate training for health care professionals in “LGBT issues.”

In terms of existing laws in Israel, homosexuals, lesbians, or “transgender” deviants cannot marry, adopt children, or have surrogate pregnancies in Israel.

Speaking in the Knesset during the debate, Israel’s health minister, Yaakov Litzmann, invoked the biblical story of the golden calf in expressing his rejection of the pro-LGBT bills, calling them sinners.

Litzmann said that “In this week’s Torah portion they made the golden calf… Moses came, descending from the sky, after he was given the Torah. He saw the calf, he saw the dances . . . And Moses returned to God and said: ‘Please! This people have committed a grave sin.’”
