Sir Ian McKellen rips out anti-gay Bible verse

From Digital Spy:

By BETH HILTON

MckellenSir Ian McKellen has admitted that he rips an anti-gay passage out of Bibles he finds in hotel rooms.

The openly gay Lord of the Rings actor, 68, objects to a verse in the book of Leviticus which states that men who sleep together will be put to death.

He said: "It's the one thing I find difficult to defend but do go on doing."

Leviticus 20:13 reads: "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them."
