The head of the catholic Church in Scotland, Cardinal Keith O’Brien, will use his Easter sermon to criticize “aggresive secularism” according to the BBC. Full story here.
Firstly, the Pope said a similar thing last year. OK so these complaints are showing that those of us who don’t believe and reject their barbaric and unsupported doctrines are actually having an effect. This citicism is an indication that they are starting to get desparate and they are being shown to have less and less relevance to people!
Secondly it doesn’t change the fact we are probably right!
Thirdly, I love it when he states that enemies of Christianity want to “take God from the public sphere”. Firstly we are enemies of irrationaliy and unreason of which Christianity is just one (very large) example, and how can you take something out of the public sphere when it doesn’t actually exist in reality in the first place?
Next he criticizes equality legislation claiming it is discriminating againt the religious. I have to keep saying this. Stopping you from practicising bigotry and discrimination is NOT itself discrimination. You have had the freedom to be bigots for too long and the world is beginning to wake up. To use an anolgy, if you hare beating someone you don’t like with a stick we will take the stick off you and you then cannot turn around and claim that the act of taking the stick off you is oppressing you!
Oh well, this is Easter, or the rising of the purpotedly magical zombie day! For those that partake enjoy the chocolate!
