  1. That will be some kind of homophobic hucksters convention then.

    “Pavlos” – I think the meeting is billed as “Bigot-Fest”.

    It’s an annual event, make sure to take your tent with you. Pota-loos will be provided and please not too much alcohol as it spoils the festival!

  3. No surprises here, now that both Parliament and the House of Lords have firmly voted against the hideous bigotry and discrimination practiced by both of these smiling, unelected idiots – it’s only right they should want to cosy up and boo-hoo in each other’s robes while consoling themselves that their current imminent demise is all the fault of the nasty homos.

  4. ‘Safeguard other Christian values’ Hmmmm, we know what those ‘values’ are…..hatred, bigotry, homophobia and intolerance.

    1. You forgot to include paedophilia!

      1. ……hatred, bigotry, homophobia, intolerance and paedophilia.

  5. So welby is sniffing around the pope guy to get some reinforcement for his crusade of hate against LGBT.

    They can claim marriage is being “abolished” all they like – it just makes them look more and more stupid. We’re joining marriage, not abolishing it, nor re-defining it.

    What would they have to talk about – they don’t even believe all the same things, and neither speak for the majority of Anglican and Catholic followers.

    The archbish, head of a cult (CofE) created in order to allow the annulment of the marriage of King Henry VIII to Catherine of Aragon, the Church of England which separated from the Roman Catholic Church in 1534 is off to whine to the cult head of the very cult he absconds from.

    And all in order to hate people born gay.

    What would your so called Jesus say?

    Stinking hypocrites.

    1. And Jesus said unto them ” Come one come all. The circus is in town”.

    Look at the picture ! I spot a similarity, are they brothers ? I think inner evil and inhumanity have manifested in their faces-

    Remember, the Roman Catholics have stated that the Anglican Church isn’t a real Church. The Romans have questioned the ‘holy orders’ of the Church of England. So, is the Archbishop even a real Archbishop as far as the Roman Catholics are concerned? Perhaps they’re friends as long as they both fight the same enemy?

    Yet, the day after the stunning Lords’ vote, he said the Church’s campaign againste the Bill is over. Bloody hypocrite! He talks out of both sides of his mealy mouth. A swivel-eyed loon like the one he’s going to commiserate with. Perhaps he’s going to check out the gay sauna that opened on church property. Now I wonder if O’Brien has been invited? incidentally, has he left the UK yet? Why is it nobody knows?

    To digress, the Marriage Bill heads to Committee this coming Monday. Don’t forget to Lobby a Lord from now until the third reading.

  11. A meeting of the mindless!

    It’s like a new sitcom called “Ecumenical Hate Buddies.”

  13. Where is Cardinal Keith O’Brien these days?

    1. Robert in S. Kensington 12 Jun 2013, 12:09pm

      He was told by the Vatican to leave the UK several weeks ago and is probably already in Rome but nobody seems to know or have any confirmation. In this day and age of 24 hour media coverage and gutter journalism, I’m surprised the Mail and Telegraph haven’t figured this one out yet.

  14. Eκηβόλος 12 Jun 2013, 1:06am

    I think that archbishop is asexual or transexual …

  15. Εκηβόλος 12 Jun 2013, 1:09am

    Δεσπονίς κεχαριτωμένη ο αρχιεπίσκοπος … ΧΑΙΡΕ ΝΥΜΦΗ ΑΝΥΜΦΕΥΤΕ !

  16. Christopher in Canada 12 Jun 2013, 2:25am

    Snake oil salesmen, the both of them!

  17. Its actually not allowed – Act of Settlement and all of that, reconciling with the Bishop of Rome…

  18. Double trouble!!!!!

    1. or even…

      Hubble, bubble, toil and trouble

  19. “The Holy see has been infiltrated by a gay lobby”

    Maybe someone should point out to his holiness that the one USP the Catholic church does have is that celebacy is a fantastic conversation stopper when you’re in the closet and relatives keep asking why you haven’t met the right girl yet.
    On that basis, closeted gay priests aren’t a bug, they’re practically a feature.

  20. Like flies around a steaming turd

  21. Yhis unholy alliance poignantly proves the old saying:

    My enemy’s enemy is my friend…

    …and this from “so called” christians.

    Given this behavior, they’re probably two of the most effective drivers for thinking rational people to support marriage equality for gay people… and two of the worst advertisements for people to join organised religion.

    Keep it up guys because people are now waking up to your inherent bigotry… and not a moment too soon!

  22. Nothing good is going to come of that meeting.

    To digress, just look at the proposed amendments to the Marriage Bill by Lord Hylton and Baroness Cumberlege:

    Clause 1

    Page 1, line 5, leave out “Marriage” and insert “Union”

    After Clause 2

    Insert the following new Clause—

    “Conscientious objection

    (1) Subject to subsections (2) and (3), no registrar shall be under any duty, whether by contract or by any statutory or other legal requirement, to conduct, be present at, carry out, participate in, or consent to the taking
    place of, a relevant marriage ceremony to which he has a conscientiousobjection.

    (2) Nothing in subsection (1) shall affect the duty of each registration authority to ensure that there is a sufficient number of relevant marriage registrars for its area to carry out in that area the functions of relevant marriage

    (3) The conscientious objection must be based on a sincerely held religious or other belief.


  24. Robert in S. Kensington 12 Jun 2013, 12:15pm

    Baroness Cumberlege’s amendment continued.

    (4) In an legal proceedings the burden of proof of conscientious objection shall
    rest on the person claiming to rely on it.”

    Vile creatures. I doubt if they’ll be successful.
