I'm trying to be serious, and warn you. The bible says: You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination. (Leviticus 18:22) If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them. (Leviticus 20:13) Homosexuality is revolting. I like your art. I wish you'd stop condoning such awful things when you have other brilliant things to bring forward. Please take my warning from God.
