Scottish Catholic Bishop Spews Homophobia

Timothy Kincaid

March 14th, 2008

A doddering senior level Bishop is convinced that there’s a secret gay “huge and well-orchestrated conspiracy” against Christian values.

Rt. Reverend Joseph Devine, Bishop of Motherwell, said, “Rant rant rant vent drool spittle…”

Well, really I don’t care what he said. I just marveled at the idea that there actually is a Bishop of Motherwell and that his name is Rt. Reverend Joseph Devine. I mean, really, isn’t that the sort of name and title you’d expect of a nefarious churchman in a Shreck movie?

But if you want to know more you can check out the bile that abides in the brain of Father Devine or the response of the non-drooling crowd.

And enjoy your weekend.

It’s also funny because Devine is the name of a famous drag queen. She starred in a number of John Waters early films.

Might as well be Reverend Sofonda Peters.

No, I appreciate your take on what he said. A little refreshing, actually. Given that all these goons need nowadays is a pack of anti-gay Mad Libs to get their statements out, I’m just interested in the person making the anti-gay sentiment.
