Time To Boycott Maine Lobster- After All, God Says Consuming It Is An Abomination
Time To Boycott Maine Lobster- After All, God Says Consuming It Is An Abomination
11/04/09-by Bridgette P. LaVictoire

If Maine wants to abide by Gods Law, then it is time that they abide by Gods Law. The Bible is clear- shellfish is an abomination. It is not to be eaten. It is time that the LGBT community and their allies help ensure that the people of Maine are not breaking Gods Law and helping to ensure that a group of people do not sully their souls by catching those crustaceans known as lobsters and it is time to put them off or menus. If the Catholic Church and the National Organization for Marriage can buy out the Maine vote, then it is time that we stop buying Maines lobsters. Obviously, the citizens of Maine have another product that they can sell, so they do not need for people to buy their lobsters.

Leviticus is clear. Lobster, as a shellfish, is on the list of unclean and forbidden animals to be eaten. Lobsters have neither fins nor scales and are not considered to be clean.

It is the duty of the LGBT Community to ensure that those who seek to inhabit the shadows and hide their beliefs behind a veil of secrecy share in the cleansing of a group of people who put their souls at risk to harvest unclean animals for the consumption of others.

The time has come to not buy Maine lobster. After all, it is Gods Law that it not be consumed.

5. LL Bean...which I love, unfortunately...
My Mom and her husband live there and were on the phone all last week urging progressives to get out and vote to defend marriage equality, but this will not stop me from boycotting Maine products.

19. Good news is, I don't see L.L. Bean on the anti-gay list
Why would some waiter from Restaurant Europa in Ohio donate money to bash gay people in Maine?

4. Technically lobsters are crustaceans
Shellfish are mollusks.
But they both are not kosher.

23. While we are at it
Edited on Wed Nov-04-09 11:10 AM by safeinOhio
eagles and osprey are an abomination also. Let's push the turkey as our national bird. The least a "Christian Nation" could do.

10. I Think It Would Be Best To Target the Businesses That Funded the Yes On 1 Campaign.
It sure pissed off the California bigots when we did that.

Let's see the names.

21. They already do
Particularly the college-educated, progressive ones who would have been more likely to vote no on 1.

15. Before you continue to espouse something as ignorant as that ...
You might consider that NORTH HAVEN just to name one ... an Island community on the mid coast ... predominantly lobster man and families, resoundingly supported you ... So go ahead kick them in the teeth ... That will show em. You are never going to win this by pissing on the people who are trying to help you, who's only stake in this is buy the way, is the Ideal of equal rights for all Americans. And you might also consider that even the defeat of question 1 was not going to fix that! Commit yourself fully to equal rights for all people and we all win, everything else is just bullshit! 48% of us in Maine who voted, supported you ... I can't speak for the rest of them, but I would prefer you say Thank You! Oh, and one other thing ... When you quote the bible, in an effort to harm and punish, as you have ... you sound as unsophisticated in your thought as they do ...

16. You Might Want To Let People Vent Awhile Before Dropping By With Your Self-Righteous Bile
"I would prefer you say Thank You!"

You are what the French call an insensitive asshole.

My pals are an empathetic bunch, who don't enjoy kicking people when they're down.
