Dear North Carolina:

So, I hear you’ve gone ahead and passed Amendment 1, putting a ban on gay marriage right into your state constitution. Well done, your decision will be remembered by future historians centuries from now. Of course, it will be remembered in much the same way as today’s historians remember your 1875 constitutional amendment to ban interracial marriages, but hey, you’re getting in the history books, and that’s what matters, right?

The Village Idiot

The Village Idiot

Against gay marriage and civil unions

The village idiot has proved he’s not fit to lead people, let alone a country.

Romney has proved himself…

Beyond doubt.

Any politician who has such inflexible, intransigent ideas is not fit to own a rubber ducky.

The Church Remains in the Dark Ages

Catholic leader calls government’s gay marriage plans ‘madness’

Cardinal Keith O’Brien accuses coalition of trying to ‘redefine reality’ with plans to legalise gay marriage

A Catholic church leader has called the government’s plans for gay marriage “madness” and a “grotesque subversion of a universally accepted human right”.

Cardinal Keith O’Brien, the leader of the Catholic church in Scotland, also accused the coalition of trying to “redefine reality”.

In an article for the Sunday Telegraph, he says the prime minister is a “passionate” advocate of the change and told his party two years ago he supported gay marriage “because I am a Conservative”.

O’Brien wrote: “Since all the legal rights of marriage are already available to homosexual couples, it is clear that this proposal is not about rights, but rather is an attempt to redefine marriage for the whole of society at the behest of a small minority of activists.

“Same-sex marriage would eliminate entirely in law the basic idea of a mother and a father for every child. It would create a society which deliberately chooses to deprive a child of either a mother or a father.

“Other dangers exist. If marriage can be redefined so that it no longer means a man and a woman but two men or two women, why stop there? Why not allow three men or a woman and two men to constitute a marriage, if they pledge their fidelity to one another?”

Opinion:

The church exists to control people through fear. As we progress from the Dark Ages, the church knows that it is losing its grip and it is the church who fears.

Marriage was invented by the church, supposedly at the behest of God. We have been brainwashed by the church for centuries where we have come to believe that marriage is the only way and if we consider any variation we are condemned to fire and brimstone for an eternity.

Marriage as defined by the church goes against nature’s instincts, in fact it is an abomination in the sight of Mother Nature.

When I look at the church’s track record, inquisitions, genocide, wars, etc I am appalled that people can simply say “It is the will of God.”  What a bunch of sanctimonious arseholes?

This vitriolic attack by a leader of the people shows how outdated the church is, and it is high time for it to be brought, screaming if necessary, into the 21st Century. Reality needs to be redefined.

Good, the damned bigots won’t be missed!

These evangelical bastards think they have all the answers. It’s about time they pulled their heads out of their sanctimonious arseholes and looked around at the real world.

As for being a ‘Christian’ pastor, he’s about as unChristian as they come. Doesn’t the church teach tolerance?
