Employee fired after playing anti-gay message at airport

Airport officials have fired a luggage attendant who admitted playing a Bible verse that offended a gay couple over an airport speaker system.

Jethro Monestime acknowledged that he played the message twice just after midnight on May 1st. He told investigators Sunday that it was a prank.

Monestime said he used his cell phone to play a recording that said: "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, they should be put to death." The announcement came from Leviticus 20:13.

Broward County Mayor Josephus Eggelletion Junior says the sheriff's office will turn the case over to the state attorney's office to determine whether criminal charges should be filed.

A co-owner of Superior Aircraft Services says Monestime was fired yesterday, and the company has issued an apology to the offended couple.

Justice MH's thoughts: This message sent through a airport was the worst joke i ever heard, and it was NOT funny! The verse he quoted i discussed already, and has no weight whatsoever base on someone's sexual orientation! He was fired for that, and he deserved that! Something like that is NOT funny! Justice served!

They should sign him up for an all expenses paid vacation at Guantanamo Bay.

Well, what is the difference here versus the guy who wanted to slam a pie in a face of a Pastor? That young man should face charges too! This person also did wrong. But hey, the bible is the bible and the bible speaks the truth.

Captian you may have a point!

Now concering the book[] it does speak it's truth, but it depends on the way it's used!

Falliable humans have used falliable books like this for centuries to promote hate and bigotry! Religion has created people who have lost their damn mind like the Phelps family, and without a doubt the religious "wrong"!
