I have three late nominations.

1) Christian complains of persecution when he's not allowed to persecute: "The Bible is quite specific that marriage is for men and women. If the State wants to offer civil marriages to the same sex then that is up to the State; but the State shouldn’t impose its rules on places of faith and conscience."

2) Britain should become a more Christian nation, according to Baroness Warsi, the only Muslim member of the Cabinet.

3) 'Jesus Ween' offers a Christian alternative to Halloween, says Canadian pastor'... "Little trick-or-treaters hoping for sugary snacks may find something odd in their loot bags this Halloween: a bible."

One more for October:

The official on charge of investigating allegations of sexual abuse will be charged today.

"The disclosure that the Catholic Church employed a paedophile as the head of child protection for the Diocese of Plymouth will add to the mounting sense of crisis in the Roman Catholic Church over its handling of cases of clerical sexual abuse." The Times, 28/10/11

Fr Dinny defends offering prayers for slain Gaddafi at Mass
http://www.independent.ie/national-news ... 15307.html
Fr McGettigan (72) said he had no problem praying for the dictator who had earned the nickname 'Mad Dog'.

"I just mentioned his name along with the names of the other people from our parish who recently died.

"I would pray for anyone, so I have no problem whatsoever praying for Muammar Gaddafi," Fr McGettigan said.

Asked if he thought it was all right to pray for the soul of a man who murdered, maimed and oppressed Libyan citizens for four decades, Fr Dinny said: "That's all the more reason to pray for him."

One parishioner said: "It bothered no one. Fr Dinny is a very Christian man."

He's optimistic Oct. 31 will soon be associated with Jesus, not bloody zombies
Oh, the irony...

If Satan is making gays, could he be gay himself?
Hmm! Not with that dress sense. No gay would wear hooves with a pointy tail.

The pointy tale always seems to be pointing at his arse though, so maybe he is trying to tell us something.
