Scaremongering Sermons

I do get very fed-up of prelates who wilfully, it seems to me, scaremonger and tell untruths. There appears to be a concentration of such people in Scotland at the moment. First we had the Bishop of Motherwell, Joseph Devine, with his charges of a "gay conspiracy" out to conspire against Christian traditions, and now we have Cardinal Keith O’Brien with his attack on the UK Government’s Human Fertilisation and Embryology bill. As Ophelia and Joe point out here and here, the Archbishop is being very economical with the truth and simply scaremongering.
 
Update: Justin is also scratching his head in an attempt to find reason and morality in the pronouncements of those challenged by thought.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
