My OutRage! colleague David Allison is spot on: “It’s the kind of remark you might expect from a drunk on a Saturday night, not someone in a supposedly responsible position,” he told the BBC, in response to this story.
I tip my hat to David. I was speechless.
A Church of England clergyman has been ordered to remove comments about gay people from his blog, remarks described by his diocese as “highly offensive”.
The Rev Peter Mullen, who ministers in the City of London, said he had gay friends and the words were “satirical”.
He suggested in his internet blog that homosexuals should have their backsides tattooed with the slogan: “Sodomy can seriously damage your health”.
Highly offensive? To put it mildly. Satire indeed!
