Jesus Loves You, But Not That Way

The Church of England's most prominent theological incompetent has had a blather in the Daily Torygraph about homosexuals and marriage. It is, saith the preacher, not the role of the state to define what marriage is; though possibly the Church might condescend to tackle the conundrum if asked nicely. Treating homosexuals as second-order human beings has been our habit for so long that any attempt to legislate against it would be comparable to the actions of a Saddam Hussein or a Kim Jong-Il: "We've seen dictators do it in different contexts, and I don't want to redefine very clear social structures that have been in existence for a long time and then overnight the state believes it could go in a particular way." As a self-proclaimed follower of a man who boasted that Daddy would arrive soon and set the world to rights by throwing most people into hell, the Archbishop of York objects to overturning social structures which have been in place for a certain amount of time. Marriage is "set in tradition and history", just like war, slavery and the Pharisees.

    You know, I can't help wondering - what with Sentamu (who fled the outrageously tolerant land which was - and is - Uganda) and, before him, Michael Nazir-Ali (formerly of the shamefully hyper-liberal Pakistan) sounding off against teh gays, whether affirmative action is all it's cracked up to be.

    (Interesting side-note: one of Sentamu's middle names appears to be 'Mugabi'. Perhaps his parents couldn't spell)

    I suspect that very few people genuinely want to live in a free society. Most of us would be quite happy just to see the oppression more equitably distributed.
