THE Catholic Church is not – I repeat NOT – crammed to the rafters with pervy priests, but some days one cannot help but to think that it has more sexual predators than any other institution on the planet. Today is one. I give you the Rev Gerold Langsch, 75, above, who has been arrested for allegedly groping a seriously ill woman while he was administering her last rites. Langsch, of Austin, Texas, was charged last week with assault by… Read more

BIRMINGHAM’S  ‘ignorance is bliss’ brigade, made up almost entirely of Muslims, stands accused of threatening parents with hell unless they sign a petition calling for a halt to inclusive sex education lessons at several of the city’s schools. Local councillor Kerry Jenkins said in a tweet this week: I have learnt tonight about ‘intimidating protests’ held today outside Anderton Park School with parents being harassed and told they will go to hell if they do not sign a petition …… Read more

RAILING against a new blockbuster – Captain Marvel, played by Brie Larson, above –  Greg Morse, a staff writer for the Desiring God website, warns that this ‘feminist’ movie sends out the dangerous message that women can be equal to men. As I consider Disney’s new depiction of femininity in Captain Marvel, I cannot help but mourn. How far we’ve come since the days when we sought to protect and cherish our women. The great drumroll of the previous Avenger movies led… Read more

Stephen Evans, Chief Executive of the National Secular Society, above, has blasted the UK’s Home Office for refusing an asylum’s seeker’s application on theological grounds. The Iranian was reportedly refused asylum when he claimed to have converted to Christianity because he’d discovered it was a “peaceful” faith. In response, the Home Office quoted Bible passages that refuted his claim, made in a 2016 application. A refusal letter the man received from the Home Office made clear that the book of… Read more

THE Wheeling-Charleston diocese in West Virginia and its former bishop Michael J Bransfield, above, have been hit with a lawsuit that alleges violations of the state’s consumer protection laws. Launched yesterday (Tuesday) by West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey the suit accuses the diocese of fraudulently advertising safe environments for children while at the same time choosing ‘to cover up and conceal arguably criminal behavior of child sexual abuse’. Some legal experts said the move by Morrisey is precedent-setting, both… Read more

Marcelo Gleiser, above, a US-based physics and astronomy professor, today (Tuesday) became this year’s winner of the $1.5 million Templeton Prize, which recognises outstanding contributions to ‘affirming life’s spiritual dimension’ – and he is quoted as saying: Atheism is inconsistent with the scientific method. Atheism is a belief in non-belief. So you categorically deny something you have no evidence against. Utter tosh! I’ve always understood that atheism means nothing more or less than an absence in the belief in gods,… Read more

AN acquaintance of convicted sexual predator George Pell, above, has claimed that not only Pell but the Catholic Church itself – its hierarchy as well as lay Catholics – had been put on trial in Australia, and that the years of ‘hatred’ directed at the cardinal may have been sparked by angry homosexuals. Furthermore, the former altar server at Melbourne’s Roman Catholic cathedral – John Macaulay – alleged that trial was a travesty, and that Pell could not have committed… Read more

IN a radio interview in the UK yesterday, Jamaican novelist Marlon James, above, winner of the Man Booker Prize in 2015, spoke of the agony he endured in a bid to be cured of his homosexuality in a Pentacostal church. In the end, he revealed on the popular BBC Radio 4 programme, Desert Island Discs, he turned away from formal religion, left the Caribbean, fully accepted his homosexuality and even wrote about it. James, who earned literary fame with his… Read more

WHEN I read today that the National Secular Society (NSS) wants organisations that exist solely to promote religion stripped of their charitable status, I was instantly reminded of threats I received from a Cambridgeshire evangelist, Paul Shinners, above, who runs an outfit called Passion for Souls, a registered charity. Shinners threatened to sue me for defamation after I revealed that, in December 2013, he had travelled to Uganda to speak at a religious rally in support of a bill that… Read more

Chicago’s troubled Harvest Bible Chapel, which financed the lavish spending of its former senior pastor James MacDonald – an utterly contemptible creep who spent some of the money on shooting animals in the wild  – now wants followers to cough up more cash to help it out of a financial hole. Earlier this month Harvest leaders reported the resignation of its entire elder board and a “significant strain” on church finances. Tithes and offerings were down 40 percent. The megachurch’s… Read more
