Kill the Homosexuals – I Fail to Understand the Cruelty

Leviticus 20:13

{20:13} If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them.

I fail to understand the fear.

Malevolent deity, or self-loathing author?

I am a moral being. I value life.
