Anti-Gay Preacher Again Apologizes


Peter Mullen, the chaplain for London’s Stock Exchange, issued another apology yesterday for his frightening remarks about the gays.

Mullen had previously suggested in a series of blog posts that gay people should be tattooed with messages like “Fellatio kills” and the such.

Now that the world thinks he’s a big asshole, however, Mullen’s suddenly become super contrite:

I did not intend to cause any upset but I realise that the remarks were injudicious and I have caused offense. I want to issue an apology.

I did not intend to cause offense when I made some joking remarks about homosexuals.

I was not actually meaning to criticize individual homosexual persons, but the promoters of gay culture.

However, my remarks have caused offense and for this I am sorry and make a full and complete apology.

Now, we know that not all “homosexual persons” are out and proud, but those of us who don’t live in the shadows, whether we like it or not, are “promoters” of gay culture, whatever that means. Thus, by taking on such people, Mullen’s actually taking on anyone who refuses to hide their sexuality, for being out inadvertently boosts the so-called gay cause. That said, Mullen, your apology falls flat. Maybe if you tattoo “dick” on your head – that might help…

      Not ‘dick’. That’d be an insult to our genitals. Maybe “666”?

      I call bullshit, his words were clear and specific. In his original statement, he used the term ‘homosexuals’, not ‘promoters of gay culture’.

      If he replaced the term ‘homosexuals’ with ‘blacks’ or ‘jews’, he would be arrested.

      I hate public apologies. What’s the point. If you said it you obviously meant it, an apology does not change that. It’s just a bit of PR damage control.

      “F*cktard” would just fit as a tattoo on his forehead.

      How about a tattoo for the chaplain that says “HATE SPEECH KILLS”?

      Okay, I realise everyone is avoiding the elephant in the room, but what the fuck is going on with this guy’s face?

      I too want to know what is up with his face. I’m guessing that he must have been burned or something….

      No. 7, he’s obviously a fagg himself but has never been able to get laid because of that face so he is rabidly angry at what he cannot have. Its his face that tells it all here.

      I cannot believe he still has his job at the stock exchange. Here in America he would be promoted but I though England was much better than us on gay rights, discrimination and hate speech.

      Preaching ‘fire and brimstone’ gets you burned.

      Perhaps Peter Mullen should have “Bigotry Kills” tattooed in reverse across his forehead.

      That way whenever he looks in a mirror he’ll realise that it applies to him.

      He seemes to have a condition known as Human Chimerism, and no I am not making this up.
      Read about it here: http://www.damninteresting.com/?p=412

      Or, It may be that he suffered burns or a stroke, or some combination thereof.

      Curiously, although Mullen promotes himself as the chaplain to the Stock Exchange (which is how his book blurb describes him), the London Stock Exchange vigorously denies that he is anything to do with them.

      In an email this morning, John Wallace, Director of Corporate Communications for the London Stock Exchange, writes that the organisation was “concerned to see [Mullen] being associated with the London Stock Exchange”, and states categorically that “there is no formal connection between the London Stock Exchange and Peter Mullen”, adding that the London Stock Exchange does not have a chaplain. Wallace says he will be asking the Diocese of London to ensure that Peter Mullen stops implying a connection with the organisation when none exists.

      I thought illegal organ sellers kidnapped this dope and sold his eyebrow.

      Maybe they could tattoo “bigotry kills” in the empty space where his eyebrow should be.
