  1. Excellent – homophobia will out. I wish him well in his new job. I hope Islam extends to him the same hand of friendship it traditionally extends to Christians in its midst. (^_^)

  2. What good news! Good riddance to the bigot!

  3. Yes, good riddance! That’s one of them gone! Let’s hope he has fun in his new job, he might find a lot in common between his own views and those of many hard-line Muslims.

  4. Whoo hoo see ya bye! and nice to see Melanie Phillips get her knickers in such a knot about it. I’ve had enough foot stamping and bottom lip quivering from this bishop.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.
    The muslim bigots he will be working alongside will offer him sever rivalry in his intolerance.

    I find his version of konservative kristianist kultism (KKK for short) to be unbiblical and unworkable.

  7. It is interesting that David refers to Melanie Phillips. I cannot see why she is so concerned with Christianity as she is a Jewess and a Zionist.

    fundies make common cause with their bitterest enemies when it comes to a mutual hate group. In this case it’s mainly us.

  9. GOOD!!!!!!!

    Just goes to show that even someone who holds a doctorate can be pretty stupid!

    I doubt it’s an EARNED doctorate … here in the US, at least, the bishop’s college or seminary gives him / her an honorary D.D. when they’re elected / consecrated.

    Good riddance. Let’s see how much tolerance HE receives. The man is an embarrassment to the Anglican Church.

  13. His education seemed to do nothing for him. What a silly man he must be.

    I say bye and dont bother coming back. Its disgraceful he calls himself a christian.

    I was in Rochester some while ago and felt a shiver down my spine when I passed the Cathedral!
