The Pope is now breaking tradition and supporting queerdom!
What a really surprising bit of news from the present Pope jumping away from centuries and all for that corner now. Even more surprising considering when he was an archbishop in South America he was the opposite. Now he is all for such according to the news and just gives me another negative on the man!

Congrats for managing to post a link, rj :up: (even though your "latest head shaking stuff" is from five years ago).

He's supporting civil unions. Not recognizing gay marriage. Not sure why you are fretting over that.

Given that your Kirk allows women as Reverends, seems a bit hypocritical on your part Mr. Howie. The Bible and Paul are very clear on a woman's place in the church after all.

Well as it happens I am against the Kirk moving towards queer ministers and indeed a crawl for marriages for that corner. Progress in a general mind is fine and Paul an outstanding man as I said once in a sermon but we have moved on regarding his time. I had to wear a black gown twice a month but not on spiritual matters!

Ah you poor man not knowing and will explain.

When I said that wore a black gown it was not for religious reasons it was a court at one of my city's District Court and I was in charge. Nice being a 'your honour.' As for socks - no red ones but have orange (of course) and Union Flag ones amongst my collection. Mind you at rallies my staunch reformed faith speeches have went down well!  :rolleyes:

It's not really controversial to point out that the scriptures condemn same-sex relationships and that there is no room for marriage or anything like marriage for same-sexers and that all popes until the present one solidly held to these views. However, the present pope's gay-friendliness may be a ploy to divert attention from the church's pedophile scandal, because everybody knows that once LBTQ(open-ended) gets normalised, so do basically all unspeakable sexual perversions. This is a bit controversial to say, until it actually happens, even though easily foreseen.

Meanwhile, Vatican has published a weak attempt of a copout, too weak to be bothered with.

That Church has a routine historical big problem and included top clergy and not just routine priests. Time that lot changed the priest status.
