Father Mullen has an idea.

It’s with great joy that I read today of the The Rev Dr Peter Mullen’s proposal that Homosexuals be tattooed with some sort of indentifying mark.

I’ve long thought there must be a better way of determining if the gentleman standing next to one at a public urinal is just shaking off the last few remaining drops, or is indeed pleased to meet a greatly endowed man of the cloth, and a nice clear tattoo would be a wonderful way of settling doubts without the need for any embarrassing questions, which always involve the risk of receiving a shocked answer in the negative.

The one problem with this suggestion is, of course, that the Bible strictly prohibits tattoos, but since the tattoo would only being applied to Sinners, and often against their will, I’m sure the Holy Spirit would be only too happy to grant us a little wriggle-room here. Besides, think of the time one would save when casually taking the dog out for an evening walk in order to meet an “acquaintance”, or while looking for a decent interior decorator.

Sadly it appears that Fr. Mullen, who as Church of England Chaplain to the London Stock Exchange is blessed to minister in a place untroubled by immorality or avarice, has succumbed to Apostate Liberal pressure to remove the blog upon which he made his excellent suggestion - http://petermullen.typepad.com/ is currently not working, although thanks to the miracle of Google caching his teaching can still be seen here. Scroll down a bit to the section headed “Matthew Parris” and you can see why Mad Priest is tipping Fr. Mullen as the next Bishop of Carlisle. Either that or he’s a shoo-in for Nigerian Inspector-General of Prisons.

I’m Father Christian and I teach the Bible.

Whatever tea he's drinking was apparently also consumed by my former US (RC) Congressman, "B1" Bob Dornan that said AIDS was transmitted by airborne spores and that those diagnosed with the disease should be isolated on islands.

Holy men, these two.

Sometime I will have to show you my tattoo with all the proper liturgical colors! Meanwhile, watch your Facebook page and I'll send it to you as a piece of Flair!

I like the idea of tattoo's on homosexuals but I think it would be best tested on dumb-ass, pompous, illiterates who abuse us ALL with their "religious authority" and painful, inextinguishable need to attract revulsion and ridicule on us all. Then, perhaps we could staple their lips together or amputate their fingers before they attempted to bring greater dis-ease to the faith's image. Or we could just tie them up until Jesus comes with the dump truck he would surely choose to drive.

I'm sorry Father, but the tattoo is going to be on the arse.

The Bible forbids tattoos?

Oh Shit!
