I guess you're right. It's another instance of "Don't try this at home."

Maybe it's time to go to confession.

They just want to keep sodomy out of the homes, and in the churches where it belongs. Parents should never practice sodomy. It's safer in the hands of experts, such as the parish priest.

The Sounds of Sodomy, anyone?

"Okay, it probably doesn’t qualify as the world’s most Sophisticated Theology, but this caused a great deal of snickering in Ireland today. The leaflet apparently is the work of a Christian group campaigning against Ireland’s imminent referendum on same-sex marriage. They had virtually no hope of stopping the inevitable even before this page started hitting the streets and then trending on social media, as there is an extremely comfortable margin of support for it. Now they probably have even less.


Such heartfelt pleas immediately launched an appropriately-named, harmless, but possibly NSFW hashtag on Twitter and is getting roundly mocked everywhere.

It is sad that some people still think their religion mandates homophobia, but heartening that the general reaction to religious bigotry in Ireland today is laughter."

I didn't see the BBC version James, and I would surely hesitate to put Cumberbatch up against a lion of the classical British stage like Jacobi. Benedict did turn in a very deep and nuanced performance though. The insouciant Sherlock role was good rehearsal for this one I'd guess. Rolling Stone's Travers gave him quite a rave, although old Peter isn't necessarily the most reliable film reviewer.

BB, did you ever see the BBC movie on Turing? Cumberbund has to be quite good if he can better the brilliant performing of the openly gay actor, Derek Jacoby. Title was Breaking the Code, and it was exceptional. I almost don't want to see the Cumberbund but know I will do so.

sk8eycat, interesting story in the newest Church and State magazine from Americans United (for Separation) about the lesbian mayor of Houston fucking up royally by sending subpoenas to local churches whose pastors refuse to comply with the benefits extension ordinance she got passed making them do this and that. They sued her and the council, so the respondent with a duces tecum requiring them supply her with texts of sermons given in the last six months, or something like that. The churches refused to comply and there was a hoop de do ending with withdrawl of the subpoenas and a black eye on the mayor. A.U. said it wished the mayor had not done what she had, because her actions were clearly improper. Hate to see a lgbtq pol -- especially one in Texas! -- get out of hand, but of course I sympathized with her. The red state element in that huge city could only be expected to do all it could to blacker her eye.

Went to see The Imitation Game yesterday with Benedict Cumberbatch of Sherlock fame playing Alan Turing. It wasn't exactly a suspense thriller, but it artfully and subtly depicted the irony of a man who literally saved millions of lives and shaved two years off WW II subsequently being hounded to death by the British government because of what he liked to do with his private parts. Showing a  magnanimity similar to the Pope's with Galileo, they posthumously "pardoned" him fifty years after the fact.

Chrissie, there are other places to have fancy weddings besides churches....hotels, parks, any public space you can rent for a day....or two.Are there non-denominational chapels that ONLY do weddings in the UK? 

I guess a church would be less expensive since in the UK, your taxes openly support the Anglican church.  MY taxes invisibly subsidize every effing church in California, because they pay NO taxes on their property, or even for their office supplies and/or toilet paper.  (I tried using pages from the buybull for TP once....not very absorbent.)

It just makes me shudder to think of non-believers having to go through the motions just for the sake of a little pizzazz on their wedding day....

Idaho will be required to pay $400,000 to the legal team they hired in hopes of continued antigay discrimination.  The state's tax dollars at work. 

Surely there is a school somewhere that could have used that money.

Chrissie, thank you for your commentary!  I hope you are doing well and having a great winter!
