“God doesn’t punish for a life of love.”

If we are to listen to bigots ( such as those coming out of the woodwork and living under pond scum in T&T) who maintain that the main point of being human is reproduction ( rather like rabbits or wildebeest ) then one should safely conclude that giving the world minor things like, I dunno, the computer and cracking the Enigma Code count  for nothing.  I suppose the same people who suggest that gay people are somehow effete and not capable of real love and bravery might also scoff at the life of the remarkable Gad Beck who showed exactly what real love is all about:

Perhaps the single most important experience that shaped his life was the wartime effort to rescue his boyfriend. Beck donned a Hitler Youth uniform and entered a deportation center to free his Jewish lover Manfred Lewin, who had declined to separate himself from his family.

The Nazis would later deport the entire Lewin family to Auschwitz, where they were murdered.

Read the rest in the Jerusalem Post here.

Never judge other people based on your own flawed moralistic preconceptions. And never express your ignorance while typing on a machine that wouldn’t exist were it not for those people you hate.

RIP Gad Beck.  Love is what makes us all human regardless of our orientation. Still, I wonder how many bigots could come even close to matching your bravery? I imagine none.
