Rabbi: Mitt Romney To Homosexualize Society, Cause Epidemic of 'Sandusky-like' Child Abuse

ChanukahConclave

Yehuda Levin, the NOM-aligned orthodox rabbi who famously blamed gays for the catastrophic earthquake in homophobic Haiti, and NYC's domestic partnerships for the destruction of the World Trade Center, really doesn't like Mitt Romney. In a new video, shot at a gathering of similarly-anti-Romney rabbis, Levin said this:

Governor Romney, over a long political career, has earned the title of homosexualist -- one who constantly advances the militant, anti-religious, anti-society, immoral homosexual agenda to the detriment of family people ...

We must denounce and condemn what Romney has done in Massachusetts, and express our fear of what he will do with our country if elected to higher office. If one has a wife for decades, and a beautiful family personally, but advances a corrupt ideology which runs counter to his own religion, and destroys the religio-cultural values of society, he is likened to a rabbi who says 'I will never eat pork, but I will force-feed pig to thousands of people.' Pig remains not kosher, and he is not kosher. We plead with other religious groups to speak out on this, and we plead with religious people to understand that the increase of the homosexualization of society increases the likelihood of Sandusky-like child abuse.

These words come from a "special Chanukah conclave" of 850 orthodox rabbis in New York City, called for the express purpose of denouncing Romney's homosexualism. Watch the video AFTER THE JUMP ...

NOM Rabbi Yehuda Levin Blames Earthquake on Gays, Claims Direct Link Between Quakes and Homosexuality: VIDEO

Levin

Rabbi Yehuda Levin, an ally of the National Organization for Marriage who last month blamed the murder of an 8-year-old Brooklyn boy on the passage of marriage equality in NY, has posted a new video in which he claims yesterday's earthquake on the east coast was because God is angry about homosexuality.

Says Levin: "We saw today an earthquake. The Jerusalem Talmud tells us that one of the reasons that God brings earthquakes to the world is because of the transgressions of homosexuality. The Talmud states, 'You have shaken your male member in a place where it doesn't belong. I too, will shake the earth.'"

NOM Rabbi Blames Murder of 8-Year-Old Leiby Kletzky on Evil Arising from NY Marriage Equality Passage: VIDEO

Via Good As You comes this stunning video of Rabbi Yehuda Levin, a NOM ally, blaming the murder of 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky on the passage of same-sex marriage, and the Jewish Orthodox community's refusal to stand up against it. Kletzky was murdered last week by Levi Aron, a supply-store clerk and former security guard who lives in the Brooklyn community.

Levin Says Levin in the video (translation via Good As You):

Why was this [death of Kletzky] allowed to happen? Let's think about it. If we go back to the cause, the effect was he was the victim, but the cause was a Jew [Yiddish] that the evil will come to destroy you within your midst. If it would have been a Gentile, people would be able to say, 'oh this is from the secular society.' But this is not from the secular society. This is, for too long we have been turning our cheek, we have been turning away and ignoring the agenda of the [Yiddish] -- first [gays] wanted rights, then they wanted adoption, they wanted special protections, and ultimately they wanted marriage -- and we all know that we did precious little. If those three or four thousand people, at the direction of their leaders and their common sense, would have come out...against the marriage, against this final nail in the coffin of morality...maybe we wouldn't have had to had this episode...replay itself. 
... 
"This came in the very aftermath of the marriage bill, my dear friends, and not doing anything. 
.... 
"The problem with Anthony Weiner wasn't that he inter-married in the last few years -- far worse than his inter-marrying is the fact that he was pushing same-gender marriage and all the shmutz."

Levin stood with the National Organization for Marriage at its press conference in Albany before the marriage equality bill was passed. You may also remember him for defending NY Tea Party candidate Carl Paladino's remarks about "dysfunctional" homosexuals "brainwashing" children.

Watch: Rabbi Yehuda Levin Discusses Paladino Defection, Defends Anti-Gay 'Brainwashing' Remarks

Yehuda_levin

Rabbi Yehuda Levin, who helped write NY gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino's remarks about "dysfunctional" homosexuals "brainwashing" children, broke with Paladino yesterday after hearing the Tea Party candidate's apology.

The NYT reports:

"Rabbi Levin said that he considered the apology a betrayal, and that he pined for the “old Carl” who spoke from his heart rather than bending to political whims. Rabbi Levin said he was especially upset that Mr. Paladino gave him no notice that he planned to back away from the comments. 'I was in the middle of eating a kosher pastrami sandwich,' Rabbi Levin said. 'While I was eating it, they come running and they say, ‘Paladino became gay!’ I said, ‘What?’ And then they showed me the statement. I almost choked on the kosher salami.'"

Levin appeared on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, and defended the term "brainwashing" with regard to children being taught about gay people in a contentious debate with Rabbi David-Seth Kirshner on the Jewish religion and gay people.
