Pooves and closet cases: October 2003 Archives

The Gospel according to Pat.

Counterpunch lists some Pat Robertson quotes. His famous comment about feminism (a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians) is well-known, but this one has, surprisingly, escaped my attention until now:

How can there be peace when drunkards, drug dealers, communists, atheists, New Age worshipers of Satan, secular humanists, oppressive dictators, greedy moneychangers, revolutionary assassins, adulterers, and homosexuals are on top?

Which leaves me wondering how these homosexuals manage to have sex if they're all 'on top'. The Reverend of DoomCounterpunch, 18th/19th October 2003.

Roz Kaveney has penned a huge rant about Christianity and homosexuality, which goes via Japan, India, Greece and Rome before arriving here and now:
