According to one self righteous homophobe…sorry preist, allowing gay clergy to be ordained into the Chruch of Scotland would blow the church apart like a hand grenade (…no not the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch..three shall thou count!).
I am actually torn on this, I believe passionately in equality, so should gays be ordained. Then again I don’t want any clergy to exist gay or straight!
Would gay clergy blow the church apart? Let’s do it and find out….
…and if it does, good!
A gang of Muslims slashed a teacher’s face with a stanley knife and hit him with concrete and an iron bar are facing jail sentences. What was the teacher’s crime? Why did they attack and seriously assault him?

World renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has confirmed that which we all knew, Heaven is a “fairy story”, for those who are afraid of the dark!
I could have told you that and I don’t even have a PhD!
…but I always said that chap was intelligent!
Apparently the leader of a Baptist Church is calling on big multi-nationals to stop avoiding paying tax!
OK, you first!
…and if we did tax the churches, how much income would the nation get to spend on “hospitals and education”?
One of my favourite comebacks that I read on a blog recently was when an atheistic scientist was talking to a creationist and the creationist stated “I don’t come from no monkey (sic)!” the scientist said, “Actually I’m going further back and showing you that you are descended from a fish!”
…and then I found this on the BBC Health News site!
