Cardinal O’Brien tells lies


Just because you can wear a silly hat, dress in ridiculous robes and carry a stick with a hook on it doesn’t mean you have any idea about reality.

Cardinal Keith O’Brien, the leader of the catholics in Scotland reckons that David Cameron the UK PM is trying to ‘redefine reality’.

I’m surprised a cardinal has any idea of what it’s like in the real world.

Same-sex marriage would eliminate entirely in law the basic idea of a mother and a father for every child. It would create a society which deliberately chooses to deprive a child of either a mother or a father.

How?  Reality says that every child will have a mother and father, and the vast majority of children will know their mother and father.  The cardinal seems to think that somehow, perhaps by magic, everyone will only have two mothers or two fathers.  Nobody is being deprived of anything you silly person, maybe your biretta is a bit tight

He adds: ‘In Article 16 of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, marriage is defined as a relationship between men and women. But when our politicians suggest jettisoning the established understanding of marriage and subverting its meaning they aren’t derided.

Oh?  Article 16:

Article 16
(1) Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family. They are entitled to equal rights as to marriage, during marriage and at its dissolution.
(2) Marriage shall be entered into only with the free and full consent of the intending spouses.
(3) The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.

O'Brien offers the pope his hand in marriage

It says that men and women have the right to marry and found a family.  It doesn’t say that only one man and one woman can get married.  You might also note it says without limitation due to religion – shove that in your thurible and burn it baby.

It was nice to see the pope and the cardinal in a touching moment, perhaps the cardinal proposed to the pope?  Or at least offered him a blow job?

What was the bit about bearing false witness again?
