    Death Threats… mmmm good to see religion Never changes.

    I guess this comes under their ‘religious freedoms’!

  2. Regarding your comment Jock S Trap, I’d say that quite a lot of pseudo-religious bigots consider gays as a legitimate target.

    People who believe that the punishment for sin is to endure eternal suffering and torment and who believe that all homosexuals are sinners…well they are going to make damn sure gays suffer any way they can manage it…all in the much abused name of God.

    And that, Pavlos, is what they call love… apparently!

    The only ‘suffering’ and ‘torment’ cames from those preaching it!

    I’m sure most religious leaders who love to take us back to the middle ages and before where they could kill, torture, rape, enslave, starve…. oh hang on, thats rights its still going on. It’s just that in civilised countries they don’t hold supreme any more and my God ain’t they mighty bitter about it!!

  4. Entirely understandable. A very brave and surely now very exhausted man.

    Pavlos, religious types who resort to death threats believe that God is on their side, hence no need to worry about eternal punishment. It is sad that this man is being forced into early retirement. He has harmed no one.
