    You should leave Your Church immediately- and save the very last trace of humanity–if there still is some.

  2. No they won’t – At All. They will be ridding themselves of a vile institution that promotes and dictates a fiction the the masses are brainwashed into believing – simple ignorant people who find superstition easier to accept than science and fact.

    It is immoral to bully and threaten people in the name of a make believe deity –

  3. Product designed to keep predatory priests away from children.
    “Priest Off”

  4. Not as grave as the acts the priests performed on innocent young people !! Vile person

    Cant believe the brass neck of these bishops ! You would think that after covering up decades of systemic child abuse they would be too embarrassed to offer moral guidance. Maybe they consider child rape less of a sin than civil unions ?

      Of course that’s what they think. The Book of Leviticus details all sorts of sexual acts men a not to partake of (note : only men, women aren’t mentioned because the Bible considers them to be mere possessions, like livestock). One of these prohibited sexual acts is man on man, but nowhere does it say man on child is forbidden. Ergo according to the entire charlatan edifice that makes up the Christian religion paedophilia isn’t as immoral as being gay is.

      Sadly, that’s the sort of twisted logic basing your “morality” on that book of lies, genocide, murder and fairy tales leads to. Nobody should be surprised that someone who was climbed the Shaman Heirarchy to the rank of Bishop would believe that.

  6. As usual, the Catholic church has got it so wrong that its pronouncements are scarcely intelligible. But here you go, Your Excellency; I fixed it for you:

    Lawmakers will be undertaking a serious and highly moral act by allowing people who have built lives together to be permitted some small measure of dignity and security by the state.

    You’re welcome!

    So threatens the BIshop of a morally bankrupt cult! Vile!

    How does Joe Zammit know that there can not be love between gay people only lust, unless he experiences it, or is he talking about something he knows nothing about?

  9. This asshole is trying to sow hate in atheist Maltese mind. The sin is all his as he is being intolerant to his fellow brothers and sisters. But he has already been warned by our prime Minister that although he has the right to speak in the name of the church he cannot interfere in the works of the State. In Malta the State and the Church do not belong to each other.

  10. Not nearly so grave a moral act as denying human beings equality. What a vile institution the Church has become. What happened to its message of peace and love? It’s now all about division and discrimination. I hope it bigots itself into the annals of history very soon.

  11. What else would you expect from the bigoted hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church

    1. for a moment there I thought your handle was Alterboy excellent point though

  12. If that’s what this rather tiresome person said, he’s not necessarily wrong – those who vote for civil unions will be committing a grave – ie serious, solemn – moral act.

    It would’ve been different if he’d said “gravely immoral act”!
