  1. This man must have prepared extensively for his visits, sermons and meetings in Uganda, in order to deliver a relevant message to his audiences. And during his stay, he must have exchanged many opinions about the situation in Uganda on a number of social issues and policies. He must have been exposed to newspapers and television news. The anti-homosexuality bill has been a big feature of Ugandan news and a big obsession of religious groups in the country. His ability to go on this visit and hear nothing about the bill, and to stumble upon a combination of words for his sermon which seem to refer to the bill in his sermon, is truly….. miraculous?

    Of course he didn’t hear a word that was being said why he was at the service either so the undercurrent of general homophobia just passed him by totally.

    Mmmmm …..

      oops ‘ …. while he was ….’

  3. If he says so, he must not know about the hate bill of Uganda. Christians don’t lie and are very loving.

    I live in St Neots. The protest was a small, peaceful affair in the Market Square, some distance away from the cafe. It was moved due to concerns about traffic safety as the cafe is on the corner.

    Also, although it was the actions of Mr Shinners, and the poster advertising the rally in Uganda in his cafe window that initially drew people’s attention to the issue, ultimately the rally was about raising awareness about the situation in Uganda.

    I invite Mr Shinners to sign the petition and make a clear statement of condemnation against the anti-gay bill in Uganda. It would seem to be the simplest way to scotch any rumors of homophobia.

    1. he wont do that -because I believe his being economical in what his saying. He as aright to voice his views but so do others. if its correct and he did take part in anti gay activity then why does he not go and live in state that shares his views. Here in the Uk we believe all people should have equal rights.

    If a person stands up for hatred and bigotry, they should expect repercussions! Even if they say they do so for ‘religious’ reasons. Hatred and bigotry are antithetical to human progress, obviously, even ignorant idiotic twits should know this. Anyone so ignorant gets what they deserve for being WRONG and on the wrong side of history, and human progress. Apartheid, anyone? If he assisted the Ugandans in any way, then he tried to help the evangelicals begin a world wide LGBT Holocaust. He deserves no sympathy from any of us…filthy Scott Lively cohort!

    Will Paul Shinners consider a takeover bid from Chick-fil-a?

  7. Surely he can’t believe people here are as ignorant as those in uganda, to believe his back tracking lies. He was there on a mission of hate , an evil piece of filth that should be run outta town. St Neots is a nice town that does not need it’s name tarnished with murder supporters. What decent, moral person would be seen in his shady businesses after these exposes of his personal association with apartheid.

  8. Looks like his god is hitting him in the pocket.

    Amazing isn’t it how these so called ‘christians’ back-track when the truth is exposed. His reaction is identical to that other religious psychopathic liar, Scott Lively who is now involved in a lawsuit over his involvement in the Uganda debacle. I urge all of you to contact Theresa May. Lively should no be allowed entry into the UK, worse than Michael Savage who was barred.

  10. I read on another forum that Shinners had thrown his toys out of the pram and threatened legal action against bloggers – what a tool!

  11. It would appear his god is rewarding him for his support in an appropriate fashion.

      If anyone was present at the protest, and has any photos, can they contact me via the Freethinker website:
