Homosexuals should carry warning tattoos, says chaplain

Post by Born_again »

A Church of England clergyman has said that homosexuals should be tattooed with health warnings similar to those seen on cigarette packets.

The Rev Dr Peter Mullen, who is rector of St Michael’s Cornhill and St Sepulchre without Newgate in the City, said in an internet blog that homosexuality was "clearly unnatural, a perversion and corruption of natural instincts and affections, and because it is a cause of fatal disease".

He wrote: "Let us make it obligatory for homosexuals to have their backsides tattooed with the slogan SODOMY CAN SERIOUSLY DAMAGE YOUR HEALTH and their chins with FELLATIO KILLS."

The Bishop of London, the Rt Rev Richard Chartres, said the posting, which has since been taken down, was "highly offensive". The Rev Mullen, 66, was told on Friday that he could face disciplinary action.

Peter Tatchell of gay rights group OutRage! said he should resign.

The rector, who has written for The Daily Telegraph, insisted that he meant no harm: "I wrote some satirical things on my blog and anybody with an ounce of sense of humour or any understanding of the tradition of English satire would immediately assume that they’re light-hearted jokes."

Mr Mullen is also listed as the chaplain to the London Stock Exchange. However, an LSE spokesman said it was a historical title. "There are no formal links between us and him in any way."

I for one can think of a kind of people that would be far more suitable for a warning tattoo! Just think of the millions of needless deaths that could have been avoided. :eyeballspin: :purefury:

Apparently, this guy's never gotten any fellatio from a heterosexual woman...... hell, he's probably never been laid. :dyinglaughing:

What a useless human being. He's probably just repressing his urges.

Clergy men should have tattoos saying, "Surgeons General's Warning: Members of the Clergy have been known to diddle young boys."

I guess that means he's getting promoted to Bishop?

Would that mean said clergy members should have gay tattoos too? After all, they are diddling boys, not girls.
