    This nutter needs to come out of his very dark closet. Note that “christian” bigots all obsess over gay sex, gay rights, gay issues, you name it? In fact, they’re more preoccupied with our sex lives than we ourselves are. What an awful waste of time and energy, obviously they’re bored, have nothing to do and obviously, they’re not getting any satisfying sex at home or if they’re single, can’t get a date. Pathetic!

    “He picks up small boys and girls and puts his hands upon them (Mark 10:16) And he was seen in a garden when one of his mates came up and kissed him (Matthew,26:48). Suspicious, eh?”

    Dan O’Neil seems to be confusing homosexuality with paedophelia.

  3. victoria: he’s parodaying the position of Right Wing Christians, not agreeing.

  4. I can ‘t believe Green is asking for the costs he has to pay to be waive “in the interests of goodwill and justice”! I do hope that Mark Thompson and Jonathan Thoday do collect the money and then give it to the THT or other LGBT organisation!

  5. Here’s a challenge to all fanatics. If you claim to know, not just that a divine intelligence exists in the universe, but to be on intimate terms with that mind, to get regular briefings from it, then it’s time to put that loving god to the test.

    If steven green were to jump from the top of one of the tallest structures in wales (e.g the new rugby stadium or the severn bridge) and be saved by his loving god, then i will talk about the science of christianity, accept his beliefs on homosexuality, and even revere him as his title exhorts me to. Deal or no deal, Mr Green?

  6. Stephen Green – hurry up and die. Then you can meet your maker and find out exactly what he/she thinks of you. If they exist it will make for an interesting chat.

  7. Another bigot hiding his hatred behind the justification of ‘Christianity’. That – or he’s seriously disturbed and needs help. Oh, if only people like this could be sectioned!

  8. Two points of clarification:

    1. On his hatesite green states that the bailiffs have been to see him in respect of the costs allocated to Mark Thompson. Hopefully Thodays will act soon.

    2. It is widely being reported on blogs that the little protest had no effect as the vast majority of the editorial staff at the paper had already relocated to their new offices.

    So it just goes to show what we have known for a long time… that the man is really quite thick indeed.

  9. At least Mr. Green is ‘living-up’ to the article’s description of him as a fanatic! No libel there!

  10. This man is a nutter. Why is he complaining about Gaelic TV programmes?? Gaelic speakers of Scotland pay their TV license too. Twat.

    I do hope he goes to jail. He’s a religious bigot extremist just like Iris Robinson in Belfast.

    Dan O’Neill for president any one? He is speaking the general truth as it really is, each sadball religion thinks that they are right and the chosen one! Mean while back at the ranch, the pope has just apologised for all the child abuse ‘WITHIN’the church. Do as we do?…. yeah right, good example! Green wants the costs waived, forget it mate, who asked him to open his big mouth in the first place. He must pay the consequences big time, bloody nutter!

  12. God bless this freaky preacher! He may well be a total nutball but he’s raising so much awareness for Gays and the horrible trials they face! He may be mouthing off in a nasty way but others will see how ridiculous he is and soon he’ll be nothing more than a silly parody of himself. He’s harmless, let him go collect cats somewhere…

  13. That Mr Green is an unpleasant bigot goes without saying. But that idiotic reporters offensive comments about Jesus and young boys is reprehensible too and way off the mark anyway.

    I wonder if he’d have made similar comments about mohammed’s marriage to a 6 year old girl? Or does he, like the BBC, only attack Christianity while adopting a position of grovelling dhimmitude with islam?

    Luke, you have a point. The thing is, its ok for “christians” to denigrate our lives and condemn us, but conversely, we’re not supposed to bash them back. Just look at the recent Islington Council ruling to allow a “christian” bigot refuse to perform a civil partnership ceremony based on her “christian” beliefs. They’re NOT above the law, nobody should be. The reporter’s comments, though some may disagree, are protected because it is about free speech, please or offend. The “christian”, “islamic” and “jewish cults” can’t have it both ways, they are equally as bad as one another. I was raised Catholic, no longer practice and in fact am an avowed atheist. The reporter’s comments are fine with me as they would be if he were denigrating or villifying my atheistic beliefs. Doesn’t bother me one bit. Its about time the mainstream religions started taking these bigots on and why aren’t they?

  15. Luke,

    The reporter asked, “How would this fanatical Hammerer of Homosexuals, leader of a bunch of annoying bigots have interpreted events in Palestine a couple of thousand years ago?

    “This Jesus feller swans around all day with a dozen other blokes. No women. Mark that, no women. And he wanders off into the mountains now and again to spend quality time with his, uh, favourites (Mark.9:2). He picks up small boys and girls and puts his hands upon them (Mark 10:16) And he was seen in a garden when one of his mates came up and kissed him (Matthew,26:48). Suspicious, eh?”

    Totally a guess at how Green would interpret J.C. and the 12 Boys back in the day.

  16. Well, if ol greeny needs a handout, I won’t mind chucking him a penny or two when I drive past on Brighton Pride. And I’m all for the solicitors pursuing his backers. Should think it will be very interesting to know who put their hands in their pockets for him.

  17. “A statement on the Christian Voice website reveals that Mr Green “has written to both Mark Thompson and Jonathan Thoday inviting them to waive their costs in the interests of goodwill and justice.”
    Oh the irony, it burns!
    Where was the goodwill and justice when they were calling for Mark Thompson and Jonathon Thoday’s heads on a platter? They shut that show down with extreme prejudice. Now suddenly the badwill is flowing the other way and they want mercy. Tough. Us unbelievers have no religious imperative not to go medieval on Stephen Green’s ass. Perhaps he should have stuck to the supposed “Christian message” of forgiveness rather than mucking around with all that fire and brimstone Old Testament drivel.
    As someone once said “the love you give is equal to the love you recieve…”

  18. Another gem from his hateite about the incident is:

    “Not content with that, he says it is ‘suspicious’ that Jesus ‘picks up small boys and girls and puts his hands upon them.’ From there, the piece descends into a bigoted rant against Christianity.”

    Compared with this quote from the guardian on 15/07/08:

    “On Sunday evening, a lone campaigner stood outside St Mary’s church, Putney. Stephen Green, a haggard and unshaven figure, obsessed and weighed down by the wickedness of modern Britain, handed out leaflets warning of the consequences of same-sex love, while announcing to anyone who would listen: “Homosexuality and sexual immorality is all on a continuum with paedophilia, bestiality, adultery, child-sacrifice. You are saying it is all OK.””

    People in glass churches should not throw bricks…

  19. Poor sad individual. There is one point that most people miss. The fact that as a Christian you can be as hateful and shameful as you like as long as, just before you die you ask JC for forgiveness, this will guarantee your assention into heaven. This is the most impressive caveat I have seen in any contract and I love this about their faith. He believes that no matter what he says and does he wont go to hell as long as he with his last breath asked JC to forgive him, he’ll be ok. I do hope that breath is soon…
