Like Longrider, I am tolerant of religious types; if they want to believe in some imaginary friend in the sky then that's fine, as long as they leave me the fuck alone. However, when total fuckbaskets like Gordon Mursell pop up and use their position of authority in order to write total fucking arsebiscuits, I find that my tolerance is stretched to breaking point.
An Anglican Bishop has compared people who fail to take action to prevent global warming to the Austrian man who locked his daughter up in a cellar for 24 years, repeatedly raping her and fathering seven of her children.
The Bishop of Stafford, Gordon Mursell, said that by failing to face up to the truth about climate change, we were - like Josef Fritzl - denying our children a future.
Now, I don't expect some ignorant, double-chinned cunt who believes in a sky-fairy to understand the rudiments of science because, let's face it, scientific theories tend to be rooted in evidence and few who believe in the existence of a god are going to be conversant with such a word.
On the other hand, the man's claim is so fucking outrageous that I find myself unable to smile tolerantly.
He stressed that he was not accusing those who do nothing about global warming of being child abusers...
Actually, that is precisely what you are doing, Gordon; and you know what? Fuck you, cunt-face.
... but said that shocking analogies were needed to force people to face up to the threat to the future of mankind.
Oh, do fuck off. The science of anthropogenic global warming is far from settled, despite what some would have you believe; further, the idea that said warming is actually a threat is also utterly unproven.
I am not going to go through all of the arguments again: you can find plenty on this blog and others.
In a pastoral letter distributed in parish magazines throughout the Diocese of Lichfield, the Bishop wrote: "Josef Fritzl represents merely the most extreme form of a very common philosophy of life: I will do what makes me happy, and if that causes others to suffer, hard luck.
Well, you aren't entirely wrong there, Gordon; however, as regular readers will know, I ascribe this attitude to the infantilisation of the population by the Welfare State and its adherents. Oh, yeah, and to cunts like this Bishop whose child-like analogy and infantile lack of subtlety is entirely consistent with such a diagnosis.
"In fact you could argue that, by our refusal to face the truth about climate change, we are as guilty as he is - we are in effect locking our children and grandchildren into a world with no future and throwing away the key.
One could argue that, Gordon, but I really don't think that you should. Because it makes you look like the prick that you so evidently are.
"We are right to be disgusted at these crimes. But mere disgust is too convenient. There are lessons for all of us to learn."
What—that it is entirely possible for people to do extraordinarily evil things?
This morning, Mr Mursell told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme: "I don't wish to shock people unnecessarily and I am in no way trying to imply that people who ignore climate change are child abusers - of course not.
Yes, you fucking are. At least have the courage of your convictions, you evil little cunt.
"I am simply trying to use an analogy to get people to wake up to the consequences of what we are failing to do, because if we don't there won't be a future for our children either."
Yes, there will. Go fuck yourself.
He added: "The problem with climate change is - as I heard Prince Charles arguing very eloquently a couple of weeks ago - that it is terribly hard to get people to see the seriousness of it, because the consequences are not faced just by the person failing to take action now.
I am sure that Prince Charles is a lovely chap but the man talks to plants, for fuck's sake. Nor is he a scientist.
"(Fritzl) is a revolting person and it is hard to imagine a more monstrous crime.
"I think we have to try to find ways to get people to see the consequences of our failure to act on climate change. If we don't face those, all I am saying is we are destroying the future of our children just as he did.
"Could you not argue that if there is no future for our children and grandchildren, we will have been guilty of committing the most appalling crimes as well?"
Yes, but there is a massive fucking great "if" in there, piss-face. Seriously, go fuck yourself.
Still, it's quite entertaining, is it not, to see the adherent of one religion attacking those opposed to another religion?
