Actions speak louder than words. 

Dissident priest Greg Reynolds has been both defrocked and excommunicated over his support for women priests and gays — the first person ever excommunicated in Melbourne, he believes.

The order comes direct from the Vatican, not at the request of Melbourne Archbishop Denis Hart, and apparently follows a secret denunciation in the best traditions of the inquisition.

The excommunication document — written in Latin — was dated May 31, meaning it comes under the authority of Pope Francis who has made headlines recently calling for a less rule-obsessed church.

White Privilege is thinking that imperialism was a good thing that actually helped the native peoples of the colonies. Even when they were forced to convert at gunpoint and robbed of their land and wealth and agency.

On Australia’s radio station, Joy 94.9 FM, LGBT journalists Pete Dillon and Serena Ryan told “Major” Andrew Craibe, the Salvation Army’s Media Relations Director for the Southern Territory, that Ryan had read the Salvation Story: Salvationist Handbook of Doctrine, published in London. Ryan pointed out several parts of The Salvation Story which she found disturbing, including a vitriolic condemnation of homosexuality which cited Romans 1:18-32: 

“For this reason God gave them up to degrading passions. Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error…. They know God’s decree, that those who practise such things deserve to die — yet they not only do them but even applaud others who practise them.”

Asked whether the Salvation Army as an organization took the wording literally (i.e. that practising homosexuals should be put to death), “Major” Craibe replied in the affirmative. 

Truth Wins Out transcribed the discussion:

CRAIBE: Well, that’s a part of our belief system.

RYAN: So, we should die.

CRAIBE: You know, we have an alignment to the Scriptures, but that’s our belief.

RYAN: Wow. So, we should die.

Later in the radio conversation, Ryan noted another section of The Salvation Story, on sin:

RYAN: It’s going into Romans again … I accept that you’re out there wanting to help people … I don’t accept that this sexuality that is part of my DNA is a choice. I also don’t accept the support of any religion in a financial sense, and this is what the gay community is up in arms about: that you’re proposing in your religious doctrine and the way that you train — this is part of your training of your soldiers — that because we’re gay, that — we must die. If you go to Romans, book 1, 18-32, it’s all there, mate. I mean, how can you stand by that? How is that Christian?

CRAIBE: Well, well, because that is part of our Christian doctrine –

RYAN (interrupting): But how is that Christian? Shouldn’t it be about love?

CRAIBE: — that’s our understanding of that. Well, the love that we would show is about that: consideration for all human beings to come to know salvation –

RYAN: Or die….

CRAIBE: Well, yes.

Wow, that’s rough.

Yes, homo.  Thanks George Takei.

Sometimes I don’t even know how to comment.

Best moment: Anderson leaning silently on his arm as she digs that hole deeper.

Big hand to Cooper for not jumping down her throat or tearing her a new one, but allowing her to say what she thought.

Say What Now of the Day: The city of Lincoln, Nebraska, is debating a proposal that would protect the LGBT community from discrimination in housing, employment, and public accommodations, and one local resident just couldn’t miss the opportunity to rant. Jane Skrovota wins Worst in Show for her hate-filled testimony vitriol in public hearings this week.

The lowlights have been helpfully transcribed (but be sure to watch the video; the horrified guy behind crazy lady is a riot):

  • “P- E- N- I- S goes into the anus to rupture intestines. The more a man does this the more he’ll be a fatality or a homicide…”
  • “A huge percent of gay men in school grounds molest boys, partly because they don’t have AIDS yet…”
  • “Hillary Clinton’s roommate four years in college was a gay woman. To avoid going gay like Clinton did, college students need single rooms and single gender dorms… A college woman is seduced with illegal Rohypnol to go gay.”
  • “Candida fungus grows hugely on a corpse. AIDS is a candida fungus disease…”
  • “Gays can transform to be celibate to live to be 80 years old.”
  • “Jesus was kissed by Judas, a homo, who tried to sabotage Jesus’ kind ideas. Do you choose Jesus, a celibate, or Judas, a homo? You have to choose!”

[hypervocal]

Quotes for the fucking ages. I did not know that unless drugged, girls think gays are abhorrent. Good to know. Thanks Jane.
