I wish this disease on nobody and wish all infected become well, but sometimes there is poetic justice.

10. Shoulda not been gay,

God can see into the closets. “Jews will not replace us”, some say. Good people say that, ones that worship the true messiah sent directly by GOD. All those “straight” people, seniors, women, mothers, fathers, even children dying with the gays......kind of a prick move their God. You can’t aim better? (Sarcasm here PC police)

that his "secret" is out after all these years?? Who knew there were so many homosexuals in the world? All getting sick?? Proving once again that RELIGION is more dangerous than anything, spreading hatred and bigotry.

20. In his words . . . 'God' has spoken


Just hope he gets to spend his remaining years enjoying his new sexual freedom, since 'God' has apparently outed him.

Then again, 'God' may simply be outing him as an asshole. 'Gods' are funny that way.

22. Pink News has corrected this

the guy is anti-gay for sure, but they corrected the part about his coronavirus statements


https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2020/04/07/israel-health-minister-coronavirus-punishment-homosexuality-positive-covid-19-yaakov-litzman/

An earlier version of this article referenced two inaccurate reports regarding Yaakov Litzman blaming the coronavirus pandemic on homosexuality. This has since been corrected.

Is he related to Jim Baker, Jerry Falwell, and all the other wing-nuts? I guess every religion has its extremists, but you would thing a country’s health minister would have a better grasp of reality.

Maybe he said "Passover" and it was mistranslated?

Just struck me as weird.
But "karma" isn't really a Hebrew word either, and that does seem to apply now.

Anyone engaging in irony that this labels him as homosexual is engaging in the fallacy of the undivided middle.
