Whomever they choose will be awful, but let us pray it is not this asshole.
The African cardinal widely tipped to be the first black pope in modern history faced a firestorm of criticism last night after he laid the blame for clerical sex abuse crises at the feet of gay priests.Cardinal Peter Turkson, who comes from Ghana, told an American journalist that similar sex scandals would never convulse churches in Africa because the culture was inimical to homosexuality. ‘African traditional systems kind of protect or have protected its population against this tendency,’ he told Christiane Amanpour of CCN. ‘Because in several communities, in several cultures in Africa homosexuality or for that matter any affair between two sexes of the same kind, are not countenanced in our society,’ he continued.‘So that cultural taboo, that tradition has been there,’ said Cardinal Turkson, 64. ‘It has served to keep it out.’
Granny Titiwhai Harawira’s Love Of Violence Passed On To Grandchildren – 3 Adult Harawira ‘Men’ Charged With Assaulting 12 Year Old Child.
Whilst this family takes a leadership role for Ngapuhi, the tribe will never grow. This family is total shit and salt everything they come into contact with. Grow some balls and cut this family loose. Ngapuhi will never accomplish anything whilst they have a say in Tribe affairs.
Three sons of anti-violence campaigner Hinewhare Harawira – and nephews of MP Hone Harawira – are facing charges over an assault on a 12-year-old boy. The charges were hanging over the men on Waitangi Day when Ms Harawira was acting in a leading role welcoming Sir Owen Glenn’s inquiry into violence onto Waitangi Marae. The three sons facing charges of injuring with intent to injure in relation to the August 24 incident are Mau Toa Harawira, 30, Enesi Zane Brooks Taito, 25, and Tohora Harawira, 22. According to the police summary, they pulled the car over and gave chase, following the boy to his home before returning for the car and parking it in the driveway. The two men then dragged the boy out of his bedroom “by his hair and arms” and onto the deck, where Tohora Harawira was waiting, the police claimed. Enesi Taito slapped the boy several more times while Mau Harawira went back inside the house and took a PlayStation3, games, two pairs of sport shoes and a baseball cap, the police summary claimed.
GODS, IT IS THE GAYYEST AND HOTTEST SPORT AROUND. WHY WOULD WE WANT IT GONE? SO MUCH FUN TO WATCH.
Unfortunately, Vladimir Uruimagov, coach of 2012 Greco-Roman gold medalist Alan Khugaev and 2004 gold medalist Khasan Baroev, took it a step further, directly blaming “gays” in a sort of conspiracy:”If they expel wrestling now, that means that gays will soon run the whole world,” coach Vladimir Uruimagov said, calling the decision “a blow to masculine origins.” He added: “It turns out this committee is headed by representative of these minorities,” clarifying that he meant sexual minorities. “It is necessary for millions around the world who understand that this is a man’s sport and who understand the need to continue the human race to go out and explain their position to the Olympic Committee,” he said. “We should prove and explain that in any other case there is no future.”
My Gods, the ‘Herald on Sunday’ is bi-polar. For the last several years whilst self loather Rachel Glacouma has been doing ‘Spy’, their cheap and always nasty gossip insert, they would have had us believe sally ridge was a shit mother with a huge sexual appetite and no morals and a shit life. Every piece written on the lady was nasty and full of innuendo and cruelty. Now that the cutter has been moved to write about politicians for the weekday Herald, which just shows how disgusting Granny herald has become it allows that creature to write about politics like she has a clue, suddenly ‘Spy’ seems to love Sally. They had a story about how Kiwis are chomping at the bit to watch her show. It seems strange as their view for the last decade has been that Sally is a disgusting cunt. Seems strange now they are singing her praises and are convinced the country want her show. Here are the best bits of mindreading from whatever hack ‘writes’ for them now……
Don’t even try to act like you’re not interested in the Ridges.
One online story on Sally and Jaime Ridge’s proposed reality show attracted a staggering 600 comments, irrefutable proof that people do care – one way or the other.
My guess is that the show will go ahead. Reality TV is a ratings winner, and Sally and Jaime are lightning rods for everything that we love/hate about contemporary celebrity culture.
My advice to TV3 is to strike while the iron is hot. Green means go!
I know tabloids are rather new in New Zealand, but could the editors and writers for the ‘H.O.S.’ remember that when you hate someone, and especially when you pour such vitriol and hate on her for years, the ‘Road to Damascus’ change does not work nor is believable.
Police in St. Petersburg arrested two gay rights activists on Thursday for violating a new local law that bans “gay propaganda” among minors, police said.
The law, which came into force on March 17, caused a divided reaction among Russians, where anti-gay sentiment remains strong. Russian LGBT groups have requested support in the West against the law that made the “promotion of homosexuality” an administrative offence. The influential Russian Orthodox Church backed the law.
Picket organizers confirmed on Thursday that the two men had been detained in St. Petersburg for picketing against the law that activists have called “homophobic.”
“On April 5, a resident of the Krasnodar region and a resident of the Lipetsk region were detained for picketing on their own,” a source in the city police said.
He said the men were detained for the slogans they carried, which he said the law qualifies as “public actions aimed at promoting sodomy, lesbian culture and bisexuality among minors.”
A gay rights organization said in turn that the two men remained under arrest, although police said protocols on the administrative offense had been completed. GayRussia.Ru quoted the men’s lawyers as saying there was no propaganda in the men’s actions.
