Pope Benedict : Gay Blackmail Allegations

by duncanr

pope benedictFolk are continuing to speculate as to the reason Pope Benedict decided to resign.

It’s easy to see why his explanation for doing so is being questioned

He is the 1st Pope in 700 years to resign, and the explanation given – that his failing health means he’s not up to the job – is hardly convincing

True, he is not a young man, and . . .

Spot the Gays (and Lesbians)

by duncanr

Some people like oral sex, some don’t. A word of warning though – If you live in (or are visiting) Malaysia, and you belong to the former category, you might want to bear in mind that oral sex carries certain risks . . .

Malaysia frowns on oral and gay sex, describing them as against the order of nature. Under civil law, ‘offenders’, both male and female, can be jailed for up to 20 years, caned or fined. (http://tinyurl.com/9mr2wm7)

So concerned about the incidence of homosexual behaviour is the Government in Malaysia that it . . .

F**k you, Dad.

by duncanr

The title of this post is a quote from a guy who was disowned by his dad when he ‘came out’

A week after he told him – over the phone – he received this letter

James: This is a difficult but necessary letter to write.

I hope your telephone call was not to receive my blessing for the degrading of your lifestyle. I have fond memories of our times together, but that is all in the past.

Don’t expect any further conversations with me. No communications at all. I will not . . .

Same Sex Marriage

by duncanr

Scotland looks set to be the 1st of the countries that together make up the UK to legalise marriage between same-sex couples – http://tinyurl.com/c2pswp5

Opposition to such marriages is generally on religious grounds – that only a marriage between a man and a woman is acceptable in the eyes of God

Wait, that’s not quite true – the Catholic Church recognizes marriage between women and mystical beings. Nuns are often referred to as ‘brides of christ’ and many wear a gold band similar to a wedding ring to symbolise that holy union. No doubt this is a blasphemous thought but if women (nuns) forego earthly pleasures to devote themselves to the service of God why are not men (priests) who do likewise not viewed as husbands of Christ?

Allow that thought and . .

Christian Charity, my Arse !

by duncanr

In Christian theology, ‘Charity’ means an “unlimited loving-kindness toward all others”

This Universal Love is held to be the ultimate perfection of the human spirit, because it is said to both glorify and reflect the nature of God [my emphasis] -see http://tinyurl.com/yewhny

Hhmmm, perhaps the Rev. Marcel Guarnizo’s superiors in the Catholic Church should give his cassock a tug and whisper a few words in his hear ?

One Million Moms vs JC Penney

by duncanr

A Christian group called One Million Moms has called on JC Penney to fire new spokesperson Ellen DeGeneres because she’s gay. In response, JC Penney told One Million Moms to piss off – they were standing by their decision to appoint DeGeneres as their new spokesperson.

Here’s what the lady herself has to say to her haters
