Dispatches from the Creation Wars

This month’s Robert O’ Brien Trophy for Idiot of the Month goes to an Anglican minister with an idea straight out of the Third Reich (and no, this does not invoke Godwin’s law; I am not exaggerating in the least):

A Church of England clergyman has said that homosexuals should be tattooed with health warnings similar to those seen on cigarette packets.

The Rev Dr Peter Mullen, who is rector of St Michael’s Cornhill and St Sepulchre without Newgate in the City, said in an internet blog that homosexuality was “clearly unnatural, a perversion and corruption of natural instincts and affections, and because it is a cause of fatal disease”.

Rector? Damn near killed er! Okay, that’s out of my system. On to the stupidity:

He wrote: “Let us make it obligatory for homosexuals to have their backsides tattooed with the slogan SODOMY CAN SERIOUSLY DAMAGE YOUR HEALTH and their chins with FELLATIO KILLS.”

Why not just tattoo them with a pink triangle? It worked so well for the Nazis.

Even better is the utter moron who left the first comment on the page:

May I remind us all that atheism is a religion in spite of its denial of any and all gods (in fact, precisely because of that assertion it so qualifies!)?

Given that, we should remember that a whole lot more people have been killed by the Nazis and Communists than were ever so done away with by any “Christian” denomination.

While not endorsing the idea of tattooing, there is such insistence upon “gay rights” and “social justice” as to make one worry that these have become new sorts of political correctness – and both Nazism and Communism were extremely RICH in that whole concept!

And the second:

Thank God for honest, intelligent God fearing men like Rev. Mullin. You go brother!!!

It appears that the U.S. is not alone in having its fair share of first class idiots.
