Oh Myyyy

There are commandments and then there are things God "recommends" like executing the "homos."

There are many broad logical reasons not to be a fundamentalist. One is illustrated here clearly. The implementation of the "final solution" is just not going to win many converts to your cause or even be very easy. Further...why are we just condoning the killing of homos? Imagine the endless resources we could share among the remaining people after we kill the adulterers like God recommends as well.

Wikipedia: The Torah and Hebrew Bible made clear distinctions between the shedding of innocent blood and killing as the due consequence of a crime. A number of sins were considered to be worthy of the death penalty including murder,[21] incest,[22] bearing false witness on a capital charge,[23] adultery,[24] idolatry,[25] having sexual relations with a member of the same sex, etc.[16]

And Wikipedia appears to diplomatically use "etc." for a number of other punishable by death crimes like working on the Sabbath, cursing your parents, and not being a virgin on your wedding night. I know, I know- I was a bit skeptical until I read the verses. But behold:

14 You shall keep the Sabbath, because it is holy for you. Everyone who profanes it shall be put to death.Whoever does any work on it, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 15 Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the Lord.Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day shall be put to death. - Exodus 31:14-15 English Standard Version (ESV)

I'm fairly certain that creating the necessary mass extermination camps all before Christmas is a bit of a stretch in a logistical way for even the narrow focus on just one group your God recommends to be killed  [ridding ourselves of aids, or "90 some percent" of it because, well, 78% of new HIV infections among males are homos... and when we add female homos well, um.. that's science.] 

I'm sorry dude of God but Christmas would be a tough timetable even if you started in January, because well,  that's history. I hate to be picky in a literal way but you started it. The Jewish peoples composed a similarly small percent of the German population during WWII, and look how hard that attempt at extermination was. 

Christmas might be a bothersome day to announce your accomplishment as well. 

Fundamentalism and literal interpretation of the Bible are not for the faint of heart and you, sir, have a little pansy paper cup on your podium.
