Head is Full of… GAAAAAAAH!

OK, so I just read about the latest vomiting issued by arch-bishop of Glasgow Mario Cunti Conti. He is weighing in, with his usual balanced and not at all bigoted effluence, to the Scottish Government’s consultation on gay marriage. This is pretty much what we’ve come to expect from this waste of perfectly good flesh but I did think his argument would be a little bit more refined than it was.

He claims that gay marriage would be meaningless as gay couples can not reproduce. Seriously? This guy is the arch-bishop of Glasgow and the best he can come up with is the same argument that is wheeled out by every ‘too much lead in the drinking water’ inbred piece of shit ignorant homophobe?

...

Then there were the letters to the Herald, the rag in which he made his views clear, supporting the odious little creep.

Archbishop Mario Conti is right to state: “The term ‘civil partnership’ describes what such unions are. ‘Marriage’ does not – it describes a different reality” (Letters September 9).
Marriage is a union between a male and a female – a women and a man. A civil partnership between two persons of same sex, on the other hand, is a negation of marriage.

Marriage is not only for love between two people but more importantly for procreation and the continuation of the human race.

Since when was there a fertility test before getting married? If marriage is for the purpose of getting pregnant then are childless couples in ‘civil partnerships’ rather than marriages? Dick.

Marriage makes a family– and the family unit is the rock on which a society or civilization stands. Thus, without the institution of marriage – the union of a man and a woman – there would be no society and no civilization.

The family unit is the rock upon which a society or civilisation stands? Well I think you will find that there are as many types of marriage as there are societies Bashir. You will find societies where are many husbands for a single wife, where there are many wives for a single husband. You will also find that in most, if not all, of these societies the arrangement is to the detriment of the woman or women involved.

So if what you say is true, that our society is built on the foundation of marriage then we need to ask what sort of society it is that we wish to live in. Do we wish to live in a society that is fair, loving and caring and that treats all members of it as equal, to be respected? Or do we wish to build a society where whole swathes of society are excluded and discriminated against. Not for views they hold, or ideologies they wish to push upon other. Merely because of who they are.

Marriage is a union between people who love each other. It matters not a jot their gender, sex or even how many of them there are. So long as they are in love and there is no coercion involved then a marriage between two men, two women, a dozen men and women and a bunch of folk who don’t consider themselves to be either ‘man’ or ‘woman’ or a man and a woman are all equally as valid.

If you think other wise then you’re just a wrong ‘un.

Name and Shame

Well, being an MP is shameful enough in it’s own right but these are the people who voted with Nadine Dorries(Link to her blog so you can see how batty she is) attempt to allow religious loons to offer ‘advice’ to women seeking control over their own bodies.

If any of them ‘represent’ you or your community then you should probably give them a seeing to telling off.

The Point, They Missed It

So, in Austria a guy called Niko Alm decided to make a point about a religious exemption with regards photographs on drivers licenses. In general one isn’t allowed to wear anything on your head or that may cover you face in your drivers license photo. Unless that is you’re a bit mental can claim that your religion demands that you wear some particular item of clothing or other. This is of course rather absurd.  Continue reading “The Point, They Missed It”

Republicans to Bring Back Slavery in the USA…

…or something. I’m not quite sure what to make of this passage from a pledge presidential candidates are to sign if they want the support of an influential Iowan organisation called FAMiLY. Michelle Bachmann has already signed.

Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born in to slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African- American baby born after the election of the USA’s first African-American President.

So, is this them saying that African-Americans had it better on the plantations???

Faith Schools, Sectarianism and Secularism

The Tory(surprise, surprise) MSP for Hawick, John Lamont, caused quite a furore when he said that the segregated schooling in the west of Scotland “produced many, if not all, of those who are responsible for the shocking behaviour which we have witnessed in recent months” (in reference to recent sectarian attacks on various figures associated with Catholicism, Irish Republicanism and Celtic Football club). The story was reposted by various groups on Facebook of a skeptical and humanist/atheist bent with many comments supporting the MSP. Some laughing about how it was the first time they had agreed with a Tory. Continue reading “Faith Schools, Sectarianism and Secularism”

13 Questions EVERY Intelligent Atheistic evolutionist must Answer…

I found the below video on Youtube this morning and figured that as I’m obviously in the mood for answering random questions I would give this guy’s ones a shot.

A couple of  wee things before I get started though “atheistic”? I’m not even sure that I know what that means? Does it mean people that are just a little bit atheist? People who are akin to atheism? Secondly, “evolutionist”? I also believe that special relativity, as far as I understand it, holds true. Does this make me a “special relativityist” or a “gravityist”? Off to a good start so we are. Continue reading “13 Questions EVERY Intelligent Atheistic evolutionist must Answer…”

Catholic Shocked At Lack Of Catholics in Ireland(and teh gayz)

Michael Voris has an amazingly lulzy YouTube channel called Real Catholic TV on which he has in the past called for the Pope to be made king of the U.S.A. Now he’s on a trip to Ireland where he asks some people on the street whether they go to Mass every Sunday. His shock is almost palpable when he realises that most Irish people have moved on since the middle ages! 😀

Creation or Evolution

Does It Really Matter What You Believe?

Creationism or Evolution: Does it really matter what you believe? Is a pamphlet produced, and distributed for free, by the Universal Church of God. The aim of the pamphlet, as should be fairly clear, is to give the ‘evidence’ that not only is Darwin’s theory of evolution untrue but that it is socially harmful. I’m going to read through this pamphlet and as I do I’ll post up a wee review of each chapter. I’ll aim to have a chapter up each week as there is only so much of this stuff that I can handle in one sitting. 😀 Continue reading “Let the Madness Begin… :/”
