“God is not politically correct”

Letter to the Scotsman newspaper

19:22Sunday 17 May 2015 00:00Monday 18 May 2015

I WAS exceptionally disappointed with the Church Of Scotland’s decision to allow gay ministers who are in civil partnerships to be ordained. I feel this is a grave mistake and will cause more division and disunity within an already divided church.

The Bible is very clear on this subject, that marriage is for a man and a woman and it seems that the Church Of Scotland have departed from the word of God and bowed their knee to political correctness. However, God is not politically correct. On their own head be it.

With a 182 against the decision and 309 for, it cant be seen as an overwhelming majority that supported this move. I congratulate the 182 for the courage of their convictions and being prepared to stand by the Bible.

We live in an age where almost anything is tolerated and if we don’t stand for something, we will fall for anything.

a comment on the above:
‘Mr Kennedy, you are absolutely right. The bible is perfectly clear on this subject. God hates gays. It is also clear on the fact he likes slavery. And sexism. And genocide.

Will you be urging the Kirk to return to traditional values in all these respects, or just the one that resonates with your homophobia?’

Politically Correct – Deck the Halls

Politically Correct “Deck the Halls”

[from Bill’s Punch Line]
Deck the halls with boughs of non-endangered plant species
Fa la la la la, la la la la
‘Tis the season to be self-actualizing,
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Don we now our alternate-lifestyle apparel
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Toll the ancient non-denominational-winter-solstice-holiday carol
Fa la la la la, la la la la
See the blazing log of
non-denominational-winter-solstice-holiday-non-endangered wood before us,
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Play the harp without unnecessary brutality and join the chorus
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Sing we emotionally stable in a collective group effort,
Fa la la la la la la la la
Heedless of the weather patterns despite the effects of global warming,
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Fast away the mature year passes
Fa la la la la la la la la
Hail the new year without any implicit ageism, ye persons
Fa la la la la la la la la
Dance in a non-hierarchical manner in merry measure,
Fa la la la la la la la la

While I tell of non-materialistic,
non-denominational-winter-solstice-holiday treasure,
Fa la la la la, la la la la

Girl Guides

Girl Guides

THE Girl Guide movement came under fire from traditionalists yesterday (19 June 2013) after it controversially dropped God from the vows its members must make.

The pledge to “love my God” is to be replaced with the phrase “to be true to myself” and to “develop my beliefs”.

And “to serve the country” will become a promise to serve the “community” from September. But Guides will still honour the Queen.

The traditional pledges, with minor variations, have been recited by all Guides and the younger Brownies – those aged seven to 10 – since the organisation was founded in 1909 under Agnes Baden-Powell, sister of Robert, the creator of the Scout movement. But now Guiding’s new politically-correct modernising leadership has deemed that the old versions of the Promise are “confusing”.
