These ye shall eat of all that are in the waters: all that have fins and scales shall ye eat: And whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye may not eat; it is unclean unto you. (Deuteronomy 14:9-10)If you read on, you'll find that God hates pork and mixing meat with dairy too. So, if you're a right-winger who likes to use Old Testament quotes to deny basic civil rights to homosexuals, I hope you're also prepared to keep strictly Kosher, stop cutting your hair and trimming your beard, and protest all divorces.
The point of the above is made brilliantly in a satire web site called God Hates Shrimp (dot com). According to the site, "Why stop at protesting gay marriage? Bring all of God's law unto the heathens and the sodomites. We call upon all Christians to join the crusade against Long John Silver's and Red Lobster. Yea, even Popeye's shall be cleansed."
Be sure to check out the press release about SF Mayor Gavin Newsom and his daring attempt to break California's ban on shrimp eating. A brave politician. And a good choice of breaking the ban at Scoma's!
