  1. Complete and utter moron!

    That is all.

  2. “The Dutch are moving away from Jesus Christ and are heading towards spiritual destruction.”

    I snorted. Loudly and derisively.

    1. Metsän poika 7 Aug 2013, 4:19pm

      If I had to choose between living in Serbia or in the Netherlands, who are supposedly ‘moving away from Jesus Christ and are heading towards spiritual destruction’, I know where I would rather live!

    2. Yes so did I, especially because the apparently God-fearing Serbians have so very much to be proud of in their nation’s recent history too, isn’t that so?

  3. That There Other David 7 Aug 2013, 3:34pm

    Serbian.

    ’nuff said.

    1. There are also those of us who are Serbian and who view his comments as absolute rubbish.

    2. Can you please not vilify an entire country just because of what some of its residents say? Granted it may even be a majority but it’s still very thoughtless to cast someone aside on account of being Serbian.

      Dislike homophobic Serbians, not just ‘Serbians’.

      1. On a quick note, I’m a different Alex to the one above.

      2. That There Other David 7 Aug 2013, 7:22pm

        The “Serbian” comment just means I’m not surprised in the slightest by his comments nor his opinions. Sadly your country has a large number of very vocal thick as pig dung young men who think they know everything there is to know about people not like themselves. I know that you’re not all like it, but they do tend to bring the perception of you all down a notch.

        That and the fact the last time idiots like this were left unchallenged in your country it invaded several neighbouring countries and massacred hundreds of thousands of course.

      3. Recently there was a pride event in Montenegro, a country neighbouring Serbia, with a large Serb minority. There has been a positive change in the formerly bigoted state since recently, when the government started being supportive of LGBT rights. All political parties joined and sent representatives to the Parade, except the Serb nationalist parties. Instead, they sent violent thugs who beat up the parade participants, including the police officers who were guarding them.
        Don’t forget that the 1990s wars in Ex-Yugoslavia were practically started with a homophobic incident, when a closeted Serb man in Kosovo went too far with anal exhibitionism, needing a medical intervention. Though he admitted it at the beginning, he was convinced by Serb nationalist activists to change his story and accuse Albanian men of sodomizing him. This started a racist and homophobic outrage against non-Serb ethnic minorities, who were supposedly “prone to sodomy”. It turned into a genocide.

        1. As far as I’m aware, the police at the Montenegro Pride weren’t injured. I also don’t know where you received your information about the protesters. My understanding was that they were not organised by any political parties. I am not going to comment on your last paragraph or some other comments you made. The progress is being made in Montenegro and Serbia in regard to GLBTI rights and I have no doubt that it will continue. We should be supportive of those who support equal rights and who fight for them in difficult circumstances instead of inflaming intolerance.

    Religionistas like him are no better than drug addicts deliberately inflicting self harm and on others. What a loser and probably has a brain the size of a pea!

  5. Most of football players have an I.Q inferior to a dead geranium. Here’s another proof.

  6. Christopher Coleman 7 Aug 2013, 3:50pm

    He does not say how this disease is contracted, so one can suppose he does not know what he is taking about. I am also not sure about the sanity of a man who gets himself covered in very ugly tattoos.

    1. Stephen in Canterbury 7 Aug 2013, 6:13pm

      And tattoos are expressly forbidden in the Bible… in Leviticus – the same place this moron probably takes his rationale for homophobia from. The penalty for having a tattoo in Leviticus – the same as that for homophobia – which in the Biblical sense meant male temple prostitutes (arsenekoitai) not gay people per se!

  7. As I began reading the headline of this article I said to myself – bet he’s a superstitious backward fool – and what do ya know – he is!

  8. He is a ‘YESTERDAY MAN’ not even worth talking about!

  9. They always say either:
    Disease, mental illness, neurological disorder, demonic possession.

    The weakest people in the world are those that project their own shortcomings on others in the attempt to demonize. It’s ironic, but they are not the well ones.

  10. Kerry Hollowell 7 Aug 2013, 4:09pm

    if he were a real christian he would not play football, he should not touch pig skin which is what footballs are made of

    1. thats an american foot ball; a soccer ball you don’t touch – you kick it ;-)

    2. Sebastian Pinder 8 Aug 2013, 7:29am

      There is no rule about Christians touching pig skin. that is Old Testament and only applies to Jews.

  11. Kerry Hollowell 7 Aug 2013, 4:12pm

    oh and christians are not supposed to have tattoos, according to his rule book the bible they should not mark their skin, what a twAt

  12. Subhankar Zac 7 Aug 2013, 4:15pm

    Wont mind slapping his face with my dick before I rip his guts out!

  13. well piss of back to Serbia, or better move to Uganda or Russia, and STAY THERE!

    1. russia has enough problems right now, they dont need anymore homophobic twonks like this aswipe propogating and already outdated and backwards way of thinking.

      let him stay, eventually he’ll get his just deserts.

      1. .....Paddyswurds 7 Aug 2013, 4:53pm

        This pig is no real surprise to anyone who has even a smidgen of Serbian history. Isn’t the backward Muslim murdering hole that is Serbia the twin of Uganda, but is more to blame for their ignorance and homophobia than Uganda because they have a semblance of education while Uganda still has to discover the concept. I will always detest the Serbians for what they done in Croatia and the Balkans . They are base animals, undeserving of being called human and should be shunned by European society. We should not forget that they also sided with the Naz1s in WW2,,,,nuff said….

        1. The massacre of Bosnian Muslims at Srebrenica (and other places) was perpetrated by the Serbian Orthodox Serbs.

        2. Really? Calling an entire nation base animals because of what one person said? As someone who spent six years as a (Serbian) refugee before settling overseas, I can tell you there was suffering on all sides.
          Btw, it was Croatians who sided with the Nazis in the Second World War. Serbs were on the side of the Allies.

          1. Only Serbian communists. Serbian nationalists were collaborating with Hitler, just like the Croatian ones. Like Croats, they also had a Nazi puppet regime.

  14. Mike Homfray 7 Aug 2013, 4:30pm

    The fascist state of Serbia. No surprise there

  15. Kevin Norman 7 Aug 2013, 4:31pm

    “Spiritual destruction”. Is that it? Oh well.

  16. And my opinion is that you are a brainless moron who should be euthanised.

  17. Confusing religious dogma with biology and human sexuality is causing Mateja Kezman some severe problems as it does for many who have similarly limited intelligence.

    1. Religious people are intellectual cowards and usually very fearful, which is why they attack anything threatening their beliefs. Through learning and accepting other’s delusional constructs and subsequent self- forming some of their own delusions, they manipulate themselves to maintain some control over an undesired reality.

      Religies lack the courage to accept truth and process out of delusions, because reality proves their delusions false, falling away as soon as reality is accepted. This is feared and avoided at all cost because it causes them uncertainty and turmoil, especially since they have learned to live and operate in the delusion but are not equipped to live in reality.

  18. Michael Nektarios Leissner 7 Aug 2013, 4:40pm

    What a poor pitiful creature. Hopefully Serbia is not becoming as evil as Russia

  19. That’s terrific news actually :) maybe I’ll get a sickness leave?

  20. “Homosexuality is a disease.” Your evidence for that is what, Herr Doktor?

    “That should not be promoted.” How do you “promote” catching a “disease” that presumably affects the mind?

    ” . . . moving away from the teachings of Jesus Christ.” And your evidence that there was/is a Jesus Christ, oh scholar of science and biblical history?

    I thought so. You seem to have blocked one too many goal kicks with your head.

    1. Sebastian Pinder 8 Aug 2013, 7:32am

      There is plenty of documented historical evidence from the time that there was a Jesus Christ from various sources including the Romans.

      1. There is only evidence that there was a ‘Jesus’. ‘Jesus Christ’ is a supernatural entity invented by St Paul.

      2. Actually, there isn’t.

  21. “The Dutch are moving away from Jesus Christ and are heading towards spiritual destruction.”

    Yeah right! Holland has some of the happiest Europeans, is peaceful, wealthy, socially and environmental conscious and it’s native Dutch citizens are largely secular and atheist.

    Serbia with it’s Jesus & Serbian Orthodox Church are responsible for the genocide of Bosniaks and Croats, is less wealthy than Holland, less peaceful, less happy and less of a long list of things. A couple of things I guess you and many of your fellow Serbians have more of is hate and ignorance!

    1. memehere 10 Jan, 9:17pm

      (Ex-) Serbian gOVERNMENT is not only responsible for the genocides of Bosniaks and Croats but also for those of Albanians, ie. Kosovars, as well as they hadn’t been reluctant to eradicate Hungarians, Czechs, Slovaks, Italians, and other ethnic minorities that were not Orthodox Christians, and/or willing to live under, still very repressing, rule of the Serbian State politics for the ethnic minorities ;-)

  22. Happily, being a religious bonehead IS an easily treatable condition – education, enlightenment, and realising that your ridiculous djinn is an imaginary construct devised so bronze age sheep-shaggers had a “divine” mandate to engage in tribal warfare.

  23. Hahaaha I don’t even get offended by this kind of stuff anymore, I don’t have time for people with potatoes for brains

  24. How on earth do you promote, in his words, a ‘disease’? Twat.

  25. Stephen in Canterbury 7 Aug 2013, 6:09pm

    The Dutch are moving away from Christ for supporting gay rights are they? Well, I have only three things to say to this stupid man (who I have never heard of thankfully!) Omarska, Prijedor and Djakovicka – to name but a few of the places your fellow country men ”followed Christ” in! The same ignorance that fuelled these atrocities still abounds in people like this man it seems!

  26. What would you expect from someone who grew in a country which has the same roots and culture as Russia?!? The only country in Europe still partner and supporter of Putin’s Russia? nothing good!!!

    1. As a person who once lived in Serbia (I left because of the homophobia), I totally agree with you. In fact, in the late nineties, Serbia was part of the Russia- Belarus Union. We were like a one country back then, even though we were geographically separated. Serbia is culturally the same as Russia (minus the great classical art).

  27. What do we have here? Someone with unbiased scientific evidence that being gay is a disease? Oh, wait, no. Its yet another bigot shovelling their bullshi†, OPINIONS as fact!

  28. Scott Larsen 7 Aug 2013, 9:42pm

    Homophobia is a choice as well as ignorance…

  29. And he lives in Madrid, one of the most gay friendly citys in Europe.
    What an ignorant moron, how does he propose to protect him self from this “disease”, is it spread by contact, sexual congress, kissing, in the air? Is it a virus, a bacteria? Is it safe to drink the water?
    Does eating garlic protect you? Wearing a crusifix?
    I think he should ease off on the headers.
    LOL

    1. *lived

  30. That There Other David 7 Aug 2013, 10:52pm

    That’s nice dear.

    Tea anyone?

    1. What a straight fool…..to bad he’s straight,what a kissy pair of lips.

  31. Someone’s still in the closet…

    1. Hahaha. Exactly! Self-loather of the first order ….

  32. Permission to say C U N T please… Thanks
    :)

  33. Sebastian Pinder 8 Aug 2013, 7:26am

    I do not agree with him, but he as the right to free speech in a democracy.

    1. I agree. And we have a right to call him a thick bigot.

  34. stephennyc 8 Aug 2013, 8:38am

    Serbian? I wonder what he heard growing up in the early nineties; perhaps that’s when he began his drift from rationality.

  35. Sounds to me like he ‘has a problem with it’ in his head. For YEARS, I’ve known men who utter EXACTLY this sort of thing but who are regularly to be found in gay saunas. Could it be that he’s fought his inner-hatred by projecting his self-loathing outwardly? Certainly, all the recent extensive research in Holland and the USA points to homophobia being driven SOLELY by inner-angst about ones own same-sex attractions.

  36. It is exactly because of footballers like Mateja Kežman that the Dutch Football Association participated in the Dutch gay canal pride. Along with the Police and Armed forces.

    It is Mateja Kežman that has a disease – he displays all the symptoms of the diseased mind of hatred, intolerance and ignorance.

  37. BlokeToys 9 Aug 2013, 1:28pm

    Serbia… another one of those nations known for intolerance, racism, bigotry, homophobia and religious insanity.

    Why are we shocked that people raised in such a moronic and intolerant nation turn out to be such intolerant morons?

  38. Owen Blacker 9 Aug 2013, 1:41pm

    Oh, Kežman. You are so pretty, but you are such a dick sometimes. And you’re not even that good a footballer, frankly.

    On a more serious note, though, it is very worrying how some of the Slavic and ex-Soviet nations (Serbia and Russia in particular) are becoming quite homophobic — especially when others amongst them are becoming much more tolerant.

    1. memehere 10 Jan, 9:29pm

      the more closer to Russia a nation is, the more bigoted …

  39. Everything you need to know is in his name, which is not a Dutch name. Go back to the Balkans, you barbarian.

  40. Why don’t you move away from Holland and start heading back towards where you came from, you asshole?

  41. …what is this prat going on about? he’s not even British and gets away with spouting garbage..he obviously is GAY himself and can’t quite cope with it…

  42. Well if you are that ugly and that filthy in your mind, and could not get a girl even if he paid for it.

    Little boys with little dicks complain the most, and who would want to touch it any way cause it is hetero.

  43. …yes yes yes, heard it all before and this prat is obviously harboring deep feelings of gay encounters–like so many males.

  44. What a dickhead. Don’t ever come back to the UK, moron.

  45. colin cass 21 Aug 2013, 6:48pm

    Sorry What did you say his name is! Shows how much this ill educated person knows! He thinks that being gay is a disease! At least we are not weighed down with the evil of bigotory!

  46. Well, he is on to something here…something inherently correct, something Natural.

  47. Mateja Kezman ,he already know that his friends also gay around him and shes wife had also some gay friends.He judge to the gay population,i respect his opinion, before you start atack be sure what Holly Bible said ,,God create a man on his own,, the,, people create a God on their own,,.-)u got me?,,you ll never be me and i dont want to be you,, try to read a
    holly Bible again.If is homosexuality disease ,being disease is not a shame and weakness.For marketing ask Madonna if she have a time for you.

  48. memehere 10 Jan, 9:04pm

    as if other sexualities are very healthy … specially the heterosexuality, out of which the most population is being generated, the population that will, or at least would, congest the planet Earth, so that there nothing else would/will be left but the mere procreated individuals – lol
