Some facts for Cardinal Keith O’Brien | Andrew Copson

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.

Morgan defends anti-gay TV star's comments - New Zealand Herald

Morgan defends anti-gay TV star's comments - New Zealand Herald | It has to get better | Scoop.it

"Us MagazineMorgan defends anti-gay TV star's commentsNew Zealand HeraldPiers Morgan has spoken out in defence of controversial anti-gay comments made by former Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron on his CNN TV show."

 

Cameron's an idiot. Morgan only invited him because it would get people watching the show (if only to see the trainwreck) and in any case probably wouldn't recognise true honesty if it bit him on the bum. See Private Eye for more details.

Gay marriage remains a deeply divisive issue - Telegraph.co.uk

Gay marriage remains a deeply divisive issue - Telegraph.co.uk | It has to get better | Scoop.it
Telegraph.co.ukGay marriage remains a deeply divisive issueTelegraph.co.ukBy Telegraph View At last year's Tory conference, David Cameron announced that the Government was to consult over legalising gay marriage, and urged his party to fall in line.

 

This is possibly the only sensible policy that Cameron *has*, to be frank. And yes, he should stand by it, for the good of society as a whole. Those that oppose equal rights in marriage are also those who are trying to roll back women's rights to  pre-contraception, pre-divorce days.

 

While I have no particular objection to the Queen herself, I am coming to believe ever more strongly that the British monarchy should die out with her, in order that the UK as a whole can finally fully implement the separation of Church and State. Kicking those unelected ecclestiastics out of the House of Lords is sorely needed.
