    I’m sure Iris Robinson wouldn’t lose any sleep over this. This is exactly the sort of thing that happens when people like her spew their intolerance and hatred at us.

  2. I blame Iris for this attack spreading her narrow minded view and she does not even know her own bible that she used to call homosexuals vile as I will now quote from her oh so favoured book “David loved Jonathan more than women” 11 Samuel 1:26
    Now most Christians or rather true one will agree with me that the Old Testament was the time of law and that it bares no relevance to the here and now as Jesus Christ coming is the time of grace and that he disregard the old testament laws so for Iris wish of the government to uphold gods law we would also have to up hold all what I am about to type
    Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighbouring

    I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7.
    I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness – Lev.15: 19-24

    When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odour for the Lord – Lev.1:9. The problem is: my neighbours. They claim the odour is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

    I have a neighbour who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

    . A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination – Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this? Are there ‘degrees’ of abomination?

    Here is my favourite one that involves dear old Iris Robinson
    Lev.21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight.

    Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev.19:27. How should they die?

    I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

    .My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16. Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

    Lev.19:9 when you reap the harvest of your land do not reap to the very edges of your filed or gather the gleanings of your harvest.

    Lev19:19 do not mate different kinds of animals
    I could go on and on just watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptXWFuwqcoQ for the rest attacks like this one make me ashamed to be from Northern Ireland I place the blame of this attack on iris and those who done the attack I want them found and punished.
    Also I would like to see how those people react when there target and fight back I myself was a victim of a attack but because
    I am a black belt in ju jitsu and because I was returning home after training I had two of my weapons with me a boken (a wooden sword) and kun chucks both I had in there bags and on my back
    any way the to gays garb me from behind I never heard them coming because I had my ipod on but I reacted fast to someone garbing me I threw them down and as the 2nd guy was coming up I landed a forceful kick to his ribs and then to his legs making him fall then ofcourse
    The others who were near by came running to join to
    That’s when I reached for my wooden sword took it out of the bag or rather the carry bag (you know the ones you would use to carry hockey sticks in)
    And boy did they run when they seen it
    I did phone the cops and a passer who had seen the two guys attack me stood with keeping those 2 who had tired to attack me with us until the cops came who then question all 4 of us I got told off for carrying my weapons but once he saw my licence for them and saw that I was still in my ju jitsu gear it was sorted as for the two lads they got fined and spent the night with the cops
