Turing honour welcomed

The e-petition says his treatment and death:

Remains a shame on the UK government and UK history.

Cardinal George Must Go!

By  •  Global news

A “backward and bigoted” Catholic Cardinal is being urged to resign after he drew a parallel between gays and the Ku Klux Clan.

Foolish Francis George, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Chicago, made the idiotic comparison when he voiced his objection to the timing of the city’s gay pride parade.

Organisers of the parade changed next year’s start-up time from noon to 10 am, meaning it would go past one of the city’s oldest Catholic churches when worshippers were attending Mass.

Crazy ex-gay outfit targets Jamaicans

By  •  Global news

A TOTALLY bonkers and near-bankrupt homophobic organisation in the US has published an advert attacking homosexuality in Jamaica.

Exodus international, a fundamentalist Christian outfit which promotes “gay cure” therapies, has taken out an ad in the Trinidad Sunday Express warning of the dangers of homosexuality and saying gays “can change”.

Exodus International says its mission is to “mobilise the body of Christ to minister grace and truth to a world impacted by homosexuality”.

The advert, according to this report, was funded by an unidentified individual and is similar to one which appeared in the Trinidad Sunday Express entitled “What you should know about homosexuality”.

‘Bible is no guide to gay marriage debate’

By  •  Global news

THE following letter, written by (non-gay) Steuart Campbell of Edinburgh, appeared yesterday in The Scotsman:

The Kirk’s claim (your reports) that the Bible “promoted” (sic, doesn’t it still do so?) heterosexual marriage is both naive and irrelevant. The arcane marriage rules of the ancient Jews are hardly relevant to modern Christians; do men still marry their dead brother’s widow?

More relevant would be Jesus’s own teaching, but unfortunately he was rather vague on the subject. There is no evidence he himself was married (unusual in itself) or that he encouraged marriage. Indeed, questioned by priests on the matter, he appeared to suggest that marriage was irrelevant in the face of resurrection.
