  1. Amazing how touchy religion is to being criticised … yet they will happily verbally persecute gays. Swings both ways (irony intended). If religion doesn’t want to be lampooned, it should stop inciting hatred towards gay people. Religion can no longer hold the moral highground following paedophile priest scandals and all the other hypocricies they perpetrate. They are bellyaching because they no longer command deference. And not before time, I say.

  2. Why is religion so touchy to criticism? If you can’t take it, don’t dish it out. In my book, ‘belief’ has no more right to protection and privilidge than anything or anyone else. If you don’t want to be hated, don’t incite hatred towards others.

    Every year, in November, Saint Nicolas arrives in Holland, and he dresses like the guy in the middle of the poster. Could be him, sans beard, as he seems to be more relaxed about other peoples’ lives than the pope. No need for certain people to feel offended.

      and he gives presents to everyone, even the bigots

  5. A true man of God should bless a gay marriage.

  6. Franky, I am offended by this poster. The suggestion that any self-respecting gay person would want to have anything to do with the established RC church is nothing short of shocking !! :-)

  7. Why would anyone want to be blessed by a former member of Hitler Youth?
