    Classic example of this unchristian bigot’s attempt to spread lies about LGBT people. He’s a hypocrite. I’ve said this many times, we have to stop the funding of religious denominations with our tax pounds. Take away their financial support, then they will have no power. Better yet, disestablish state religion, its irrelevant, unnecessary and a drain on the economy.

  2. Keep the Roman Empire in Rome!

  3. why so surprised: established religion is a power centre, always allied with, or at least working in the same business as secular powers. Since they can’t use the strong arm as much as they used ot on politicians, they will use their power on the members of their churches. Any other group interfering so blatently, with the implicit threats, would be in the dock

  4. I’ve just read this hypcrite’s remarks concerning gay children. His Xian charity makes me gag. But what else can you expect from a celibate man, with who knows what in his past?

    apYrs, and lets not forget, what experience do celibate clergy know about relationships, sexuality or anything else they deem to be morally superior to? The majority of them live an unnatural life of zero sex and they have the gall to call our orientation unnatural? At least we didn’t choose ours, THEY did! If I were straight and had a troubled marriage, a catholic priest would be the last person I’d approach for advice, let alone anything else. They know NOTHING about life, they hide from it and many hide their sexual orientation too. They don’t fool me one bit. This creep is just a typical example of a bitter old man who is out of touch and living in the middle ages. These religious nutcases all have one thing in common…..they obsess about gay sex, gay life, gay rights more than any others. You have to ask yourselves why?

    Not this guy again… doesn’t this twit have a day job as a bishop? He seems a “little” obsessed with the gays for some reason. Way too much time on his hands.

  7. I heard a rumour that John Mason newly elected MP for Glasgow East is (allegedly) a closet homosexual, who lives with his twenty-something partner but on his biography describes himself as single. Interesting in a party funded by anti-gay Souter!

  8. Religious leaders should remember that no-one minds them having a fantasy friend, but the legislation of this country has to be based on fact not fiction

  9. Bishop Devine said, “What are we to do when our religion is attacked and our conscience outraged?”

    What he proposes attacks my very existance, and outrages MY conscience. He puts my safety and that of my loved ones at risk. According to him, though, those little facts are beneath considerations. His god tells him so. Such arrogance!

    He can teach his hateful screeds in the privacy of his own sanctuaries all he wants, but he has no business pushing his articles of faith on the unsuspecting innocents of society. Separation of Church and State NOW!
