  • Mood:

down with this sort of thing (careful now)

Calcutta gay activists say "They have no right whatsoever to say that we are somewhat different!" bystanders express concern; "Authorities should immediately stop such activities, otherwise our youths will be lost in the merry-making of the gays." (The whole story.)

At least some people can debate equitably. Not so civilised in the office of a leading christian paper (where one of my co-volunteers works) where this last week (under the strain of the gay bishop row) email exchanges have become frosty, and now mostly start with, "As a committed christian married woman, I think" or "As a partner in an ongoing committed loving relationship, I believe" -- as usual I've coped with the stress by reading -- this time, Paul's letters to everybody from a dog-eared Good News bible that wasn't fit to sell.

Not much about homosexuality in them. He had more important things to worry about. Kissing and circumcision, for example ... (I might do something with the bible, I haven't decided yet) ... but one thing was clear enough, that the letters fit (Paul's perception of) Christian values to the values of the people he is preaching to. He even says so, open and honest.

In other news, I've visited that owl sanctuary! and oh please...
