  1. He’s lucky it was only water!!!!

      Too bad hydrogen and oxygen in combo aren’t flammable…

      1. They are. Extremely so. That’s why the Hindenburg went up in flames when a spark caused the hydrogen in the airship to react with the oxygen in the atmosphere.

          When hydrogen and oxygen are bonded (H20), they are not flammable at all. That’s why we use water to put out fire. You moron.

  2. Why have you blurred out their nipples PN but forced us to endure André-Jozef Léonard’s comb over?

  3. On a more serious note why is anyone hosting a “debate around blasphemy and freedom of speech” in the 21st century

    1. Hard to believe, but in parts of Europe (like the Balkans, & particularly Greece), complaints of blasphemy have been successfully prosecuted by members of clergy against LGBTs. Freedom of speech is seen as a threat to those in power.

      1. I know. Doesn’t make it any less baffling though

    2. Might have something to do with fascists like FEMEN trying to stifle debate – first attack language and distort meaning eg ‘equal’ marriage – then attack people .

  4. This needs Putin with thumbs up in the background.

  5. Very immature of them. This is not how to behave.

      Confomity, thy name is Stefan.

    2. “Behave” is the key word here.
      Oh how obedient and compliant you must be!

      Personally, I don’t need anyone to tell me how to “behave”, and the moment someone tries to, I’ll be the naughtiest boy in the playground, just out of sheer defiance.

      Welcome to the notion of civil disobedience and protest, a tactic used to overthrow slavery, end apartheid, stop state homophobia, and fight for voting rights for women – and plenty more too throughout Human history.

      “Behave” = “Do as you are told and don’t ever question”. George Orwell would turn in his grave.

  6. Only water…a flammable substance would have been more appropriate, shame.

    Because taking your top off will always get you taken seriously and respected as a formidable intellectual giant!

    1. Maybe if you took your top off you’d stop typing drivel.

      Is it wrong that I view keith somewhat like a pet troll now, a part of the fabric of pink news? Like a sort of harmless village idiot

    2. Yes, the ‘deviant’ heterosexuals that have ruled this planet since time began usually drop bombs, shoot people, imprison, torture and do unspeakable acts of terror to be taken seriously. I’d rather take my top off personally.

      1. keith, moral instructor to deviants 25 Apr 2013, 5:46pm

        You think heterosexuality causes those things? Funny then how homodeviants have been campaigning for homosexuality to be allowed in the army, so they can be soldiers and have guns to shoot people.
        Did you know that the evil King Edward II was a homosexual as are the majority of child molesters in the Catholic Church. You are aware of the problem of clergy committing homosexual abuse on children?
        Oh and by the way, Hitler was likely one of your own!

        1. Spanner1960 25 Apr 2013, 5:53pm

          I tell you what, if the world consisted of only homosexuals, we might possibly die out eventually, but it would be a far happier place.

          Do you really think we are called “gay” by coincidence?

        2. Do you think your pointless rants on pink news get you to be taken seriously and respected as a formidable intellectual giant? Because they don’t. You prove yourself time and time again to be a brainless bigoted idiot. Seriously, get a life, get some friends, get some help. Oh and by the way, you’re a total weirdo.

        3. If Hitler and members of his cabinet were gay, please explain why they would send so many of us to the camps, along with the Jews, Gypsies and other “undesirables”. If they were trying to make the world into their own image, why destroy their “own people”?! Read some history, Keith, you freakin’ moron, before spouting off stupid remarks like this!!

        4. We’ve had gays in the British Army for 13 years. The Danes have had them since the 70s…. f**k it, I’m not going on. You’re either trolling for your own amusement or you’re exceedingly thick… Yes, you’re a troll. Nobody can be as dumb as you’re pretending to be. I call your bluff, loser!

    3. Honestly, I kind of agreed a bit here. Until I realised who said it, our pet homophobe. Then I knew I was in the wrong.

  8. Dear everyone,
    If you have the time to do this, then please join our cause – there is a page on facebook called “We can defend marriage”, featuring this story, as well as the views of about 80 homophobic people. There is a group of about 12 of us that are pointing out their hate and promoting equality. The more pro-equality posts there are, the more isolated they will feel, which will help :)
    regards x

  9. Whilst I agree with the sentiment behind Femen’s protests I think they are doing more damage than good in the struggle for equality.
    By protesting in this manner, they are only providing the conservative right with ammunition.The rednecks in society with the “show us your tits” mentality may applaud the protests(tho this may in fact be quite difficult for them with one hand already in their trousers) but they do so for reasons other than equality and will continue to view us as nothing more than poofs, fags and freaks. We need the support of those that occupy the middle ground in society in the struggle for equality. And I cannot help but feel that protests such as this one will only alienate the middle ground. We need to take on religious groups and governments at every opportunity but we need to do it rationally and based on reason. In this instance, all that is being portrayed is a group of semi-naked aggressive young women attacking an elderly man. This is not good PR.

    1. This.

      Their actions are disgraceful and paint the arch-bishop as a tolerant martyr being plagued by the pro-gay feminists.

      I believe in same-sex marriage and many other pro-gay issues because I think it’s right, but I don’t want to fight dirty like that to obtain them.

  10. The Father of Lies Satan , and his demonic untruths eg so-called ‘equal marriage’ = distorted marriage, ‘choice’ = murder of children in the womb, lgbt pseudo ‘rights’ = depravity…seems to have possessed Femen the brownshirts of the rainbow fascist movement .

    With dignity and calm the Archbishop prayed for his attackers who assault Christ and his Church with blasphemies , lies and insults .

    “Catholic baiting is the anti-Semitism of the liberals.”

    Saint Michael the Archangel,
    defend us in battle;
    be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray:
    and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
    who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
    Amen.

    Anti-’homophobia’ protesters , eh ?! – this is like calling Mosley’s blackshirts anti-aryanphobia protesters !

    More like FEMEN the Sturmabteilung (brownshirts) of the homo-fascist rainbow movement – disrupting debate through violence and intimidation with their Beer Hall Putsch ‘politics’ .

    1. Hitler, Himmler, Goebbels, Eichmann and Mengele were catholic
      Also Mussolini and that spanish dictator whose memorial should be a pile of cow dung

      the catholic church supported the nazis during the war

      http://nobeliefs.com/nazis.htm

      BTW as the bad guys lose more and more they get nutter and nuttier

      Too bad they wont do what most of the nazi leadership did at the end of the war – poison their families and shoot themselves.

  12. I just love these women. And I think they’re doing a great job!

  13. this is nothing compared to how a couple years ago the police had to break down church doors to get at the records of molestation in the church

    These relligious freaks believe in an after life

    They should be sent there forewith for all the children who committed suicide or had their lives ruined by the not normal policy of “celiabate” priests
