Keith talks to Dan Savage about Carrie Prejean wanna' be Miss Beverly Hills Lauren Ashley's statement that "God wants gays put to death". Dan talks about how dangerous this type of over heated rhetoric is because it gives justification for others to gay bash as well and can unfortunately as we all know too well lead to violence.

Dan asks here as he did in his blog what other parts of the Bible these people would like to take literally:

The same God that allegedly scribbled out that stern warning for the gays—a God who wishes us only the best!—also condemned to death all young women who aren't virgins on their wedding nights. So a follow-up question for Miss Beverly Hills: Are you a virgin? If not, should you be put to death? And a former Miss California—Carrie Prejean—isn't a virgin. Should she be put to death? Would you like to cast the first stone?

Can you help us out?
