I nominated Cardinal Keith O’Brien for the New Humanist Bad Faith award back in 2008. He didn’t win but I think if I nominated him again he would be in with a much better chance.


On his intervention in the gay marriage debate, it’s not just that his opinion is inhumane and hateful, it is based on two claims which are totally unsupported by the facts. Maybe this shouldn’t be too much of a surprise but I think it is worth pointing out.
