Rabbi Continues Attack on Gays, Calls Same-sex Families ‘Deviant’

11/06/2018 | Jerusalem Post

Rabbi Yigal Levenstein, co-dean of the Bnei David pre-military academy in Eli, has continued his crusade against the LGBT community by congratulating the government and coalition for defeating a bill last week that would have granted gay couples access to state-supported child surrogacy. Levenstein has made a series of incendiary comments about homosexuals in recent years, denouncing activism for gay rights and describing homosexuality as “a perversion,” activity that has led to severe tensions between his pre-military academy and the Defense Ministry. In a letter to coalition chairman MK David Amsalem that he made public on Sunday, the rabbi said he had been prompted to write because of what he described as “emotional manipulation” by MK Itzik Shmuli of the Zionist Union, who is gay, who called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the debate on the bill last week to “look him in the eyes” and tell him he could not raise a family.
