WHEN one thinks of gay ‘cures’ in an Islamic context stonings, lashings, beheadings and plunges from the top of tall buildings spring immediately to mind. But Kuwaiti “therapist” Dr Mariam Al-Sohel has discovered a far more humane method of curbing the sexual urges of gays and lesbians – special suppositories based on “Islamic science”. MEMRI TV, which records all manner of preposterous pronouncements by Muslim “experts”, learned of Al-Sohel’s radical “butt-holeistic cure”  from a recent interview broadcast on Scope TV (Kuwait)…. Read more

MORE than 6,600 have signed a petition calling on Taylor University in Indiana to cancel a visit by Vice President Pence, above, who is due to give a commencement address later this year. This prompted evangelist Franklin Graham to angrily ask: What are these people smoking? The petition says that, by giving Pence a coveted platform for his political views: Taylor makes our alumni, faculty, staff and current students complicit in the Trump-Pence Administration’s policies, which we believe are not… Read more

JAMIE Smith, above, owner of Belle’s Smoking BBQ, thought he was being smart when he gave a new meaning to the letters LGBTQ  that he’d printed on T-shirts he put up for sale on his Facebook page. Turned out not so smart at all, according to this report. In fact, to borrow from my favourite Austin Lounge Lizards song, he quickly discovered that life is hard, but life is hardest when you’re dumb. His Facebook post, in which he said… Read more

PRESIDENT Trump made Easter all about him and the US economy at the weekend – and is drawing fire for what social media is calling a ‘narcissistic’ tweet that made no mention of Jesus. The ninnyhammer wrote: Happy Easter! I have never been happier or more content because your Country is doing so well, with an Economy that is the talk of the World and may be stronger than it has ever been before. Have a great day! Many took… Read more

Stephen K Amos doesn’t go a bundle on the Catholic Church, so when he learned that a BBC programme in which he featured would include a meeting with Pope Francis he said said no. I’ve been quite vocal in my criticism in certain aspects of the Catholic Church. I thought a private audience meant you go and see him, he blesses you and you leave. I couldn’t in all conscience go and do that, it’s not me. Then I said… Read more

IN October 2016, an ABC News “20/20” investigation exposed the dangerous activities the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing, founded by Jim Humble, above, a crackpot who claims to have come from another galaxy. His mission on earth is to eliminate 95 percent of illnesses and diseases ranging from cancer to multiple sclerosis with a “miracle” product called MMS. But MMS, or “miracle mineral solution or supplement” is  simply chlorine dioxide, a powerful bleach that is used both on textiles… Read more

I DONT regard the evidence advanced for the existence of God or Jesus as being remotely convincing, so my own response to a question such as ‘Brexit: what would Jesus do?’ is to reject the question as loaded, and in one sense pointless, rather like asking ‘How good is the Loch Ness Monster’s sense of smell?’ In one sense, my analogy between God and the Loch Ness Monster is unfair; more people are motivated by ideas about God than by… Read more

WHEN part-time pastor Jaddeus Dempsey, of Impact City Church in Pataskala, Ohio, invited kids to spit in his face, slap him and even cut him with a steak knife to illustrate the humiliation and torture suffered by Jesus, he no inkling of the outrage this would cause. After video of the stunt went viral members of the public reacting with shock and disgust – and the church’s lead pastor, Justin Ross was forced to apologise for the incident in a… Read more

THE Labour Party, which has been struggling for months to throw off accusations of anti-Semitism, today found itself in the midst of a fresh row – over bread. The party was forced to delete a tweet which sent Passover greetings to British Jews after it was pointed out that the image it used featured a loaf of bread. Leavened bread is not eaten during the Jewish holiday, and the inclusion of the image in an official tweet by Jeremy Corbyn’s… Read more
