    Pope Ratzinger said on Monday that homosexuality was a "a deviation, an irregularity, a wound," whereupon Tinker Bell, patron saint of homosexuals, waved her wand and blew the the beanie off the Pope's skull. "And Wednesday night I'll knock the dunce cap he wears during midnight mass right off his head for good measure," said a pissed Miss Bell.

    Judy Fjell made the observation about the previous pope that to condemn homosexuality while wearing a gown doth protest too much...

    She wrote a song in preparation for his 1987 visit to San Francisco. This is from memory, as best I can, since googling the lyrics turned up nothing.

    Please, Mister Pope John Paul
    Now that you're here, tell us all
    in the safety of this drag-queen town,
    won't you whisper to us why you are wearing that gown?

    We won't breathe a word to the press
    if you will just confess,
    why in the name of God
    you wear dresses to cover your bod?

    Are you ashaaaaaaamed of your body?
    Then you've learned your lesson well.
    The church proclaaaaaaims the flesh is naughty,
    and leads us all down the path to hell.

    Well, I hate to be the one to break it to ya --
    wearing dresses ain't the way to Hallelujah,
    so won't you come down from off of old Saint Peter's rock,
    and you can swish all you want when you walk.

    Unfortunately for gays, most Christians share the Pope's view. I don't know why gays are so worried about what people think of them...

    He left out "abomination" (not my word).

    Love thy neighbour? Judge not lest you be judged? Fuck the whole hypocritical bunch. Organised religion is about control "do as we say or you'll burn in hell etc" Just remember benny was a member of the hitler youth, that other well known bunch of haters.

    Since we just had same-sex marriage rights stripped away in California by a popular vote, it seems obvious to me why gays need to be concerned about what people think of them.

    And considering that in most states in the U.S., an employee can still be fired for simply being gay, most gays do have to worry about what others think of them, whether they want to or not.

    The Catholic church spent the second highest amount in the effort to pass Prop 8. They seem to care a great deal about what gays can and cannot do.

    Once somebody fucks with my life, I'm going to care about what they think and will continue to do so as long as they do not respect my rights.

    Just more proof that religion is NOT a force for moral growth... but quite the opposite..
    Religion... ALL religion... is a force for darkness, exclusion and condemnation.

    Its all about us versus them... the true believer versus the infidel.


    Its an ENGINE of intolerance, fear and hatred.

    And its ALL a lie and a delusion.

    High time to eradicate this cruel parasite on the hide of humanity.


    Religion IS the arrogance of ignorance.

    Dear Phil

    Looks like you're a fanatical "true believer".
    What do you believe?
    A "religion" of your own making?

    Two questions spring immediately to mind; firstly, have you met (or canvassed the opinion of) most Christians, and secondly, does that therefore mean that to be a Gay Christian is tantamount to self condemnation, or merely a non Sequitur?

    Actually, both questions are rhetorical, but I thought the observation should be shared.

    Given who the old fart is, I'd say that's unlikely. :wink:

    No- I believe in that which can be demonstrated.

    That's not a religion because it does not require faith, it relies on proof.

    I would happily subscribe to any religion that could offer even the amount of proof I have to pony up to get a crappy sub prime home loan.
    But they can't offer any such proof because they believe in delusional nonsense.


    History shows religion for what it is. A feel good make believe denial of reality. A control system intended to make some feel special, at the cost of making others less so ( true faith versus false religions or godless atheists )
    A method of forcing otherwise decent people to commit, or at least tacitly endorse, heinous criminality in the name of a make believe 'god' who is less moral, less compassionate, less intelligent and less forgiving than the average four year old.

    A force for undermining the Constitution...


    So, really... you wanna argue over who has the best imaginary friend... ?knock yourselves out.

    But please keep that infantile idiocy to yourselves and locked up in those buildings where the charlatans you call preachers, pastors, ministers and priests, sucker the rubes out of their money.

    They don't refer to you as their flock for nothing...sheep ranchers don't do it for the love of the sheep.
    Its ALL about the shearing.
