Christian Voice pickets South Wales Echo
Despite descending rapidly into irrelevance and bankruptcy, failed fundamentalist lobby group Stephen Green’s Voice (aka Christian Voice) is still twitching in South Wales.
The Cynical Dragon informs us that a recent column by Dan O’Neil in the South Wales Echo on the subject of Stephen Green and his anti-gay activities prompted a six-strong protest in that newspaper’s foyer.
The column, which was entitled “If God considers gays an abomination, why did he create them?” (a fair question), contained a paragraph suggesting that Jesus was gay. This of course is the grossest blasphemy to the demented homophobes of CV, and is exactly the suggestion that drove the organisation to its disastrous legal action against Jerry Springer: The Opera (the line “Well maybe I am a bit gay” was spoken by the dream Jesus):
This Jesus feller swans around all day with a dozen other blokes. No women. Mark that, no women. And he wanders off into the mountains now and again to spend quality time with his, uh, favourites (Mark.9:2). He picks up small boys and girls and puts his hands upon them (Mark 10:16) And he was seen in a garden when one of his mates came up and kissed him (Matthew,26:48). Suspicious, eh?
When the protestors were ejected from the building they sang hymns in the street.
