"Bishop of Burnley vows to oppose gay marriage change"

Who cares? In the States, it will soon become federal law for civil union in all States for gays and it is for others because it's a civil rights matter the NAACP had taken over now.

As for marriage, there is no such thing as traditional marriage but in the States, marriage is and always has been nothing more than a religious ceremony gays and everyone else has been allowed to have if they want. Marriage in the States is not legally binding because this is a secular nation where a document from the courthouse is required to make a so called marriage a civil union.

People in the west no longer care what bigoted religious freaks have to say about anything. Religious freaks are insane. Churches are mostly just old people now and in ten years will be as vacant as in Europe.

It's way over for the right wing nuts and I mean politically, religious, opinions and everything else. Americans no longer care what that minority of idiots say or think.

That's not true, of course.

Just because YOU have difficulty with a simple concept, doesn't have any bearing on the law.

And, come on, do sane people really need to verify what types of genitals are attached to a married couple? How is that relevant to their marriage?

some people are naive enough to think that marriage actually means a man and woman. That is of course, not the view in Islington and Notting Hill. Some people still even think you need a man and woman to get children, instead of buying them from Africa. How very outmoded.

the Book of Common Prayer does mention man and woman . My mother was a woman - but I see that is now frightfully passe.

another outbreak of poovish nonsense. marriage is between men and women - if you want to make a lifetime commitment, make a legal contract. Trouble is you gays think the whole world revolves around you and your queenish hissy fits. Why not try for a job in a musical? then you can have drama every night.

Maybe in New York but in a large part of the country it will take more than 10 years for your prediction to come true. In the South they are indoctrinating the young harder than ever. And they have turned the churches into huge social clubs. The result is a large number of kids who are totally self-centered and unreligious in every way EXCEPT that they have been taught to put on a show so that everybody "thinks" they are upstanding religious individuals.

The next generation will be even bigger hypocrites than their parents are.

You homophobes think the world revolves around you and only your opinion (without any sort of fact to back it up) should be considered to have legal standing.

How sad for you to live with such a restrictive, impoverished sense of values. You are being left behind and there's nothing you can co about it except pout.

well I insult pricks like straa and you at every opportunity.

What's makes you right and me wrong?

You not an hypocrite? Don't make me laugh.
You were quick to slag off AL: Muslims for a business of paedophilia - Rochdale, was it?
But since, cases against BBC luminaries, Jimmy Saville, Lee Travis, Cyril Smith, etc... have been uncovered and your silence has been deafening!
Suddently you have gone quiet on the subject.
Why?
Because being white, they escaped your attention, and you are solely interested in slandering Muslims.
If a guy like Jimmy Saville abuse 300 or 450 girls (as it is alleged according to papers), that's ok with you: he was WHITE.

You aren't interested in paedophilia at all, but in slandering a whole group of people and one religion, because that's the EDL party line, yes? You use paedophilia because it's a powerful subject at the moment, but you carefully chose who you will slander about it!

wrong again.

the fact that your left wing masters in Government/media go into full "denial" mode when the subject of Muslim child abuse is raised is the main reason people get so angry about it.

the fact that these abusers in Rochdale were "imported" abusers is another reason people get so angry about it,as you point out,we have enough indigenous abusers as it is,why import more?

to be honest your concern for "Muslims" is looking suspect since you let the mask slip and called someone a "Paki".you confession that you have used prostitutes in the past,who chances are were being exploited also make your attempts to stifle ANY debate on Muslim child groomers highly suspect too.

I called him a paki because he isn't one, and because I know that it irritates him.

I am not surprised that you cannot understand; you are so thick.

Straaa is just like you; an irritating cnut!

you forget the simple fact that without "heteros" there wouldn't be anyone at all, let alone pooves. No-one is being left behind. stop being a drama queen.
