Anglicans Fail to Scare Away Arts Festival Attendees With Tales of Peter Tatchell Abusing Their Kids

The 36-year-old annual arts festival Greenbelt, held in each year in England, regularly attracts popular Christian and mainstream music acts. Oh, and The Gays. This year it’s activist Peter Tatchell, who will give a talk. Last year it was American Bishop V. Gene Robinson. All of which means the Anglican Mainstream, the Church of England’s conservative cheerleading section, wasted breath demanding good Christians boycott the festival, because ew, gays! But for this weekend’s event, the Anglicans are being ignored, and Greenbelt activists aren’t caving to their demands; Tatchell remains on the docket. All this, despite the Anglican Mainstream’s Dr. Lisa Nolland warning religious types that by inviting Tatchell, Greenbelt put child attendees at risk of sexual abuse. The scandal has paid off: Ticket sales this year have increased.

      PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS

      Slowly it seems the kiddie diddling drama is rearing its ugly head into other religious enities. It seems that the catholic priests were not only ones. There have been reports of episcopal dioceses affected even rabbis in ultra orthodox jewish communities being arrested for kiddie diddling. Maybe these folks may want to steer clear of the threat of exposing those taking liberties with little boys………..you know the old saying “be carefull of what you wish for”. Those exposed could very well be their own………….

      ‘Dr Lisa Nolland’? “And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.” — 1 Corinthians 14:35.

      Shut up, Lisa.
