Nothing has changed, that church will not change, 5 examples of his thinking…..
1. A Senate vote on gay marriage is a destructive pretension against the plan of God
From a letter to the Carmelite Sisters of Buenos Aires on the perils of marriage equality:
“Let’s not be naïve, we’re not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God.”
2. Gay marriage will destroy the family
More from the same letter to the four monasteries of Argentina:
“The Argentine people will face a situation whose outcome can seriously harm the family… At stake is the identity and survival of the family: father, mother and children.
3. Gay parenting is a rejection of God’s law engraved in our hearts
“At stake are the lives of many children who will be discriminated against in advance, and deprived of their human development given by a father and a mother and willed by God. At stake is the total rejection of God’s law engraved in our hearts.”
4. The political struggle against marriage equality is war
“The bill will be discussed in the Senate after July 13. Look at San Jose, Maria, Child and ask them [to] fervently defend Argentina’s family at this time. [Be reminded] what God told his people in a time of great anguish: ‘This war is not yours but God’s.’ May they succor, defend and join God in this war.”
5. Gay adoption is discrimination against children
According to the National Catholic Reporter, Francis called gay adoption a form of “discrimination against children.” A comment that resulted in a public rebuke from Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who said that Francis’ remarks suggested “medieval times and the Inquisition.”
Best TV show in yonks, so camp.
The musical-drama Empire this Wednesday drew 10.3 million total viewers and a 4.0 demo rating, rising 4 percent and two tenths from its already-strong debut.
As his latest trilogy of work débuts on Channel 4, Russell T Davies is already onto his next project – which tell the story of a group of gay men during the 80s AIDS epidemic.
Cucumber, Banana and Tofu have just been released on Channel 4, E4 and online, and will in 2016 be followed by ‘The Boys’, which he describes as his most autobiographical yet.
While the drama hasn’t been written or cast yet, Davies said it will focus on a group of gay men, as well as one character who campaigned to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS.
Speaking to RadioTimes.com, Davies said: “It’s partly looking back on your life, it’s partly because of my boyfriend [who has been seriously ill] I have been staring mortality in the face.
“I want to go into the bedsits – it’s called The Boys because it’s about the boys. And they will tell the stories of it, because there is a lot to say about it.
“I think we are reaching a bit of a generational thing where men like me in their 50s are looking back and realising how shocking it all was. We all ran away from it. I ran away from it.”
Going on, Davies said only few gay men went out on picket lines, and were rarely “waving banners and placards”.
“I mean that for myself. I didn’t go on marches. We didn’t quite believe it was happening.
“I had friends who died and I didn’t go to their funerals. I didn’t even write to their mothers. I was young and stupid and I just carried on. And I am ashamed. And I wonder why. Which is why I want to write this. Things you want to write just rise up in you.”
