Becker & Poliakoff attorney in Virginia ‘unleashes “old school homphobic rant”,’ law website reports

Above the Law, a national “behind-the-scenes” website for the legal profession, on Tuesday posted an article about South Florida-based law firm Becker & Poliakoff:

Senior Lawyer Unleashes ‘Old School’ Homophobic Rant, Hits ‘Reply All’

For reasons that remain unclear, Becker & Poliakoff senior attorney Walter Kubitz took time out of his busy Monday morning to share his views on the Florida same-sex marriage case, Brenner v. Scott. I don’t know why Kubitz was moved to speak on the matter given that he works out of Becker’s Virginia office and it doesn’t appear that Becker was involved in the case in any way.

From an email sent by Kubitz on Monday to all Becker & Poliakoff professionals:

Today’s reckless trashing of morality has been damaging on many fronts. For one, there has been a significant increase in sexually transmitted disease over the past few decades, with the gay plague of AIDS being a classic example.

We would do well to heed the Proverbs 11:21 warning of our ultimate Judge: “Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished.” In other words, popularity does not trump peril.

Homosexuality, clearly condemned throughout Scripture, is especially perilous in that it tends toward the “reprobate mind” as spoken of in Romans 1:18-32 that makes its participants all the more hardened in their ways. The message to the homosexual, as to all, is “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found . . .” (Isaiah 55:6).

More proof any fool can get a law degree. Do not be intimidated by these lawyer types.

How did Gary Rosen believe that a "no comment" would be an acceptable response?
