    I have a problem calling this a morality test… if your readers think the picture comparison is a morality test and that there is just some level of difference between the two then they need to be shot. Doing something about the picture on the left is a crime and not doing something about the picture on the right is a crime, but the latter should qualify you as a criminal

      The point of this juxtaposition, if you so will, is that a lot of anti same-sex marriage folks, who are mostly religious, have expressed more outrage about two men getting married than they have ever expressed about children starving. Even in this very country where the majority of them believe that people aren’t entitled to food. It is a matter of misplaced morals and skewed, immoral, really, priorities.

      So, if you look at the picture of two gay men kissing and it outrages you more than looking at an image of starving third world children, then “you need to revise your views on morality.” In other words, you need to sit down and truly contemplate your priorities and the high moral ground you think you are taking by being more outraged about same sex marriage than inequality.

      A lot of religious people are hypocrites. And this image depicts their harmful hypocrisy and exposes their truly questionable standards with respect to what constitutes moral behavior. I would say caring more about someone else’s marital status to the point of denying them the right to get married and less about systemic inequality is a huge moral failing and evidence for skewed, immoral and right-out harmful priorities.

        I’m saying that if the gay men outrage you more than the starving children you are a criminal who needs to be punished. To be outraged about GLTBQ people over starving people in any way is to make you a criminal.

        Let’s say it another way: people who love each other bothers me but starving children… not so much. Or another way: I will poke my nose in other people’s business as long as they don’t need it or are not starving. Or another way: god did not tell me to take care of starving children.

          You and the message in this poster are in agreement then, because this is exactly what that says.

            Absolutely, but I’d go a step further than talking about morality. Jesus might not have said love the gay men but he did say feed the poor. If you choose left pic over right you are completely missing the point of benevolence and love and thus sacrificing your right to live free because you are clearly harmful to society.
