The Bible offends some

Jeff Monestime, 23, a luggage attendant at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International airport, was fired for playing a Bible verse on his cell phone. He said it was a prank,but a homosexual couple sitting in the airport didn't think so. They considered it a 'death threat'.

Monestime said he used his cell phone to play a recording that said, "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, they should be put to death." The announcement came from Leviticus 20:13.

well, for the couple, it might not have been the most comforting of words. But, it wasn't their cellphone, so the worker should not have gotten fired.
