    “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.” Jules, quoting Exekiel 25:17, Pulp Fiction

    • Kutman says:

      And yet, Exekiel 25:17 reads “I will carry out great vengeance on them and punish them in my wrath. Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I take vengeance on them.”

      • E says:

        You apparently prefer the New International Version to whatever Black Liberation Theology version Jules may be using. (Looks like it’s derived from the King James Version.) And yet you still can’t spell Ezekiel correctly while you’re busy “correcting” the already-correct quote.

        • Kra'ul Sheykhon says:

          Actually, Mr. E, Kutman is correct, as the verse spoken by Jules in “Pulp Fiction” was a combination of Ezekiel 25:17 & Psalm 23 quoted from a Sonny Chiba film, “The Bodyguard”, except Jules replaced the line “Chiba the Bodyguard” with Lord, as PF was Not a Chiba flick.

    Yeah, so that’s really homophobic.

    • Nick Wright says:

      WIN AT OBVIOUSNESS MASTERY

    • Sjcodan says:

      Homophobic is a very incorrect term. Phobic means fear. We just dont like gays, we dont fear them

      • MikeB says:

        “phobia” is a technical term essentially describing the part of your brain handling the emotion. It does NOT mean you go gibbering in terror. It basically means you don’t like it, nothing more. More advanced cases MIGHT involve actual terror but it’s not necessary.

        For that matter, dislike and fear are the same emotion, just different levels of it.

    aaaand now I’m done reading a comic full of bigots, that was unpleasant.

  4. Vicus says:

    I like how he (and most other homophobs) never quote the entire thing which also states you sould lay with a woman or an animal either… inanimate objects are ok though^_^

  5. Goz says:

    Do not lay with a man as you would with a woman? What if you lay with him like he’s a man? Oh…God Likes Bottoms!

  6. Quevim says:

    Frankly, I dislike thin-skinned folks who can’t see a representation of bigotry without thinking it’s an endorsement even more than I dislike bigots. Hiding hurtful opinions behind a willfully ignorant veneer just perpetuates the hurt. Whatever, on to the next comic!

    So the curiosity hit me and DL’ed and watched Ai no Kusabi. It’s pretty softcore. Doesn’t justify the faces on the poor guys.
