Leaflet in Amsterdam urges all religions to “unite” against LGBT people

Twitter

Police in Amsterdam have received over 20 complaints about an anti-gay leaflet.

The leaflet, which state that homosexuality is forbidden in Islam, Christianity, and Judaism, has been distributed door to door in western parts of the city, according to Dutch News.

As well as calling for the three religious groups to “unite” against homosexuality, it also displays some harmful made-up statistics, including one that claims that 29% of children raised by same-sex parents are sexually abused.

The Netherlands was the first country to legalise same-sex marriage, and its capital city Amsterdam is known for being very liberal, but the beliefs expressed in the leaflet marks a direct challenge to these values.

It states: “The moral responsibility for these children is all of ours for the coming generations. All Muslims, Christians and Jews must unite.”

The leaflet also quotes a line from Leviticus in The Bible, which states that homosexuality is an “abomination”, and quotes Romans 26-28, which refers to men being “burned in their lust toward one another”.
