Gay clergyman with BBC radio show wants gay marriage but cannot discuss morality beyond tolerating SIN.

@RevRichardColes' idea of #morality is to treat everything with levity as if it were BENEATH HIM to acknowledge nasty things go on.

@RevRichardColes Not at all. I have failed to get a sensible answer from you about anything, but I think you it is your purpose not to [give a sensible answer].

@RevRichardColes Your views on morality sound interestingly degenerate. Care to tell us more?

@1party4all I preached thrice yesterday, I have very little to offer today.

‏ @1party4all
@RevRichardColes What did you preach? I would dearly love to analyse your sermons.

@1party4all I preached on conflicting theologies of baptism and the textual transmission of the story of the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts.

@RevRichardColes Very amusing indeed. I am sure your congregation took great comfort in the relevance and seriousness of your sermons.

@1party4all ... what it mens to understand baptism.

@RevRichardColes #Baptism is a waste of good water on a failed religion of a failing civilisation whose religious institution encourages sin

‏ @RevRichardColes
@1party4all Do you expect me to dance to your tune when we have these exchanges?
 9:08 AM - 7 May 12

Richard Coles
‏ @RevRichardColes
@1party4all You seem to have simultaneously an enormously high expectation of religion and intense cynicism about its usefulness.
 9:10 AM - 7 May 12

Claire Khaw
‏ @1party4all
@RevRichardColes I do realise that people like you are in fact INCAPABLE of discussing #morality seriously.
9:10 AM - 7 May 12

Claire Khaw
‏ @1party4all
@RevRichardColes It is the *purpose* of #religion to instil #morality. I am questioning your ability to fulfil this function.
 9:11 AM - 7 May 12

Richard Coles
‏@RevRichardColes
@1party4all Do you not think that some of us might be reluctant to talk about morality on your terms?
9:15 AM - 7 May 12

[How is asking him his views of morality talking about morality on my terms??]

Richard Coles
‏ @RevRichardColes
@1party4all I don't think religion is merely a device to secure values in societies.
 9:17 AM - 7 May 12

[He probably thinks its purpose is to give people him a living and the respectability that goes with it, while doing fuck all for the morals of the people.]

‏ @1party4all
@RevRichardColes Is #morality for you about encouraging your congregation to not bother their heads about morality and tolerate EVERYTHING?
 8:49 AM - 7 May 12

Richard Coles
‏ @RevRichardColes
@1party4all No. We do try not to rush to hasty answers.
 8:51 AM - 7 May 12

Claire Khaw
‏ @1party4all
@RevRichardColes In the meantime tolerate every fucking evil stupid thing the liberal shits come up with, including #gaymarriage, eh?
 8:52 AM - 7 May 12

Richard Coles
‏@RevRichardColes
@1party4all I'm strongly in favour of gay civil marriage and think the church may get there too in the end.
 8:56 AM - 7 May 12

Claire Khaw
‏ @1party4all
@RevRichardColes u r in favour of validating what is in fact a #sin according to the #Bible, cos people like u r now allowed to do so.

@1party4all Short answer: yes.
9:03 AM - 7 May 12 


Why does a dog lick its balls?  Because it can.


Why do gay people want to shove the penis  of sodomy up the reluctant anal passages of those who wish to support family values supported by marriage?  Because we let them.


Why does a man throw stones at an angry caged animal and poke it with a stick?


Because it amuses him to do so.  


Marriage is not for gay people.  Gay marriage is as useful for gay people as a maternity bra is useful to a man or boxer shorts are useful to a woman.  But they want it anyway, just like spoilt children want things they don't need and shouldn't have.


Let us hope then that the cage is sufficient protection.
