Anglican Priest Wants Tattoos on Gays

Reverend Peter Mullen of the venerable Church of England is in the hot seat these days (no, not Hell, silly, it doesn't exist) for comments he posted to his personal blog which some are now trying to claim is offensive to gay people. The reverend merely suggested: "Let us make it obligatory for homosexuals to have their backsides tattooed with the slogan SODOMY CAN SERIOUSLY DAMAGE YOUR HEALTH and their chins with FELLATIO KILLS." I understand the "sodomy can seriously damage your health" thing, because, hey, who among us hasn't been rushed to the emergency room with sodomy burns? But "fellatio kills"? I think he's doing it wrong. To their credit, the Diocese of London ordered Mullen to remove the comments, but he defended his posting, claiming that it was just a light-hearted joke. He told a British newspaper, "I certainly have nothing against homosexuals... Many of my dear friends have been and are of that persuasion. What I have got against them is the militant preaching of homosexuality." Read more reasons to convert to Anglicanism here.
