  1. One down – how many thousands to go?

  2. It’s sad that these lunatics are so stuck in the past. The bible encourages slavery and all sorts of heinous things. Back in Wilberforce’s day most christians supported slavery, now you will find few that do. Most christians I know take the good bits of the bible and throw out the obviously terrible bits. It’s a shame these bigots can’t do the same.

      A Bible without the bad bits is a pamphlet. It’s a very effed up piece of literature, and the fact so many people treat it as a moral guide probably explains much about what’s wrong with the world.

      1. … but is it a ‘rule book’ or not? As far as I’m aware, picking and choosing rules to suit your own bigotry leads to chaos. Imagine treating The Highway Code in the same way ….

          The “rules” described in the Bible have been largely ignored throughout the history of Christianity, and indeed were being ignored and/or amended even whilst the New Testament was being written. For instance, take the requirement on circumcision. It’s there in the Gospels that every follower of Christ should be circumcised as the Jews were. That’s what Jesus said.

          “Saint” Paul then decides that the requirement of taking a knife to one’s member might hurt his growing movement of devoted followers, so overrides the teachings of Jesus by claiming that those who claimed that were misguided.

          Paul, a man, overrides the so-called Son of God on the so-called rules. The rules also frequently contradict each other, depending on the author of the book in question.

          To use your analogy, if the Bible were the Highway Code we’d all long ago have died in accidents.

  3. He should not be a councillor period, how can you represent gay people in this ctachment area fairly with homophobic views.

    I think UKIP only pushed ho out to avoid bad press ,there not gay friendly. are they?

      He was democratically elected. He therefore gets to be a councillor.

      Something tells me he won’t survive the next election in his ward, but in the meantime he still has the right to sit on that council.

    I’d pray for his enlightenment but I think medication would prove more effective.

    David Sylvester has done us favour in showing just how morally pusillanimous UKIP are. Nigel Farage, like all other politicians, is only interested power. Well done David you have opened up the fatal flaw in UKIP.

    The Islamists must rubbing their hands with glee seeing the mass suicide of British democracy. The end cannot be far off.

    1. Excellent. That’ll suit you, won’t it? Don’t your sort look forward to The End?

  7. That’s a bit embarrassing (if this loon were capable of embarrassment), being told you’re too barmy for UKIP!

  8. Being chucked out of UKIP is really about as low as you can go. Can anything be more humiliating? Poor silly old fool.

  9. I wonder whether the Tories will let him back in, or will his journey to the outer darkness be via the BNP or whoever?

  10. The idiot is clearly delusional. Bless him
