The Thoughts Of A Cambridge Don

A lecturer in 'postcolonial studies' named Priyamvada Gopal has published an attack on Bishop Henry Orombi's views on homosexuality.
Although much of it is boilerplate grievance mongering, what really strikes one about the piece is the absence of any reference to Bishop Orombi's Christian orthodoxy; that while hating the sin, he might also be loving the sinner.
One wonders whether those such as Ms. Gopal would prefer to see Christianity utterly erased from the world, rather than its message be preached and followed; which would be something of a pity.

I'd like to see Christianity wiped from the world. It's dangerous and divisive and always has been. It's afforded a respect far out of proportion to the so-called message of "love" it preaches, something o other belief is - and certainly something that the religious do not give to others.

I see the ABofC has been shown up as a hypocrite on the issue of homosexuality - and let's not even get started on the Pope, who has been protecting the paedophile, Cardinal Law in the Vatican for quite some time now.

Religion - killing dissenters for millenia.

Black,

It's hard to see how any philosophy whose principal tenet is 'Love thy neighbour as thyself' is divisive.

As far as Cardinal Law's concerned, I would be very certain about my facts before making allegations of that kind. Religion does not kill - people kile other people. Their motives are never an excuse.
