This week's shit of the week

Step forward, 'Bishop Pete Broadbent.

'Call me Pete' is the epitomy of the so-called 'trendy' bishop who is in fact, a deeply conservative, anti-gay voice within the church. I interpret his views are homophobia, through and through, and indeed, his sour and personally abusive emails which he sent to me a few years back helped me to see the church for what it really is.

Broadbent is exceptionally unpopular. He was once a Labour councillor in Islington at a time when revealing his anti-gay views would have been political suicide. Choosing to climb the greasy ladder of the church hierarchy instead, he switched his allegiance to the evangelicals and has since been a prominent spokesperson for the homophobic current rules within the church

TEC in the USA have agreed that there should be no bar placed on gay and lesbian people in relationships. Good for them. Broadbent has been one of those who has condemned them.

Well, what's new This man still has the temerity to call himself a socialist. he wouldn't know socialism if it crawled up his arse.....maybe its that he needs!

Shit of the week, Pete Broadbent, Bishop of Willesden - a true representative of the contemporary church and all it stands for.

Recommendation - ditch Broadbent and his putrid band of imaginary-friend bigots.

What a wonderful illustration of the gentle, compassionate, Christ-like love for which the inclusive church stands. Not.

I ditched the church many years back. I respect those working for change from within and many are still friends, but I decided that Christianity is inherently not inclusive and the CofE institutionally homophobic.

These people are bastards and need vigorously opposing and controlling in any way possible. No opt-outs, no privileges - just opposition to religionist homophobia.

And how about not posting anonymously, you snivelling coward? Identify yourself next time or don't expect an anonymous dig to be published.

Incidentally, I'd say the likely author is Andrew Carey, the divorced hypocrite son of the worst Archbishop if Canterbury in memory. Both well known homophobes - loathing gay people.

These people are bastards....

I have to take issue with you about George Carey. He was truly awful, but can you say that the present incumbent is any better? If pressed I'd say that Williams was the worst archbishop and Carey the stupidest. That seems to do justice to them both.
