Michael Reiss, you sinned against the wrong god
From the (Double) Standard Measurement Department in Britain (so much Brit news these days!), a Church of England clergyman has been ordered to remove
comments about gay people from his blog, remarks described by his diocese as "highly offensive".No, I wouldn't think so.
The Rev Peter Mullen, who ministers in the City of London, said he had gay friends and the words were "satirical".
He suggested in his internet blog that homosexuals should have their backsides tattooed with the slogan: "Sodomy can seriously damage your health".
The gay rights group Outrage described the comments as "Neanderthal".
A Diocese of London spokeswoman said the remarks did not reflect its views.
If it was a joke, seems nobody "got" it. And Outrage is surely being unfair to the Neanderthals.
Anyway, friend Jane Harris Zsovan writes to say,
Oddly enough, he hasn't had to quit his job, while that the priest that suggested that ID should be taught has resigned from his position with the Royal Society.Ah yes, that priest would be Michael Reiss, the sinner in the hands of an angry god.
Looks like the Darwin god casts a bigger hex right now than the gay god.
Look, I just report the news around here, okay?
