No, it's not the anti-gay / female, child molesting, HIV spreading, fascist loving catholics that make you sick. Actually, being catholic makes you sick. So said Angelika Walser from the Institute of moral theology in Vienna in a discussion chaired by Stuttgart News (Stuttgarter Nachrichten). For her, the question, "Who is a good Catholic, someone who follows their sexual morals or someone who struggles with them because it damages them?", the answer is clearly the latter.
"I accuse the Church of making their followers life-hating and body-hating", the paper quoted her. "The Church should reform itself now." She continued that gay priests in this patriarchal brotherhood feel comfortable on the one hand, but on the other they cannot develop their sexuality because they have to hide their sexual feelings and take a woman hating position. Under these conditions celibacy becomes an oppressive ideal and abuse cases are an institutional problem in the church. Read more in German on queer.de and Stuttgarter Nachrichten.
Could it be that the church has been infiltrated by some gays who are quietly destroying it from within? Why else do they protect paedophiles, preach so much hate and generally behave like an international criminal network hell bent on destroying love wherever it shines?

One of the printer bombs from Yemen was intended for a gay synagogue in Chicago, according to reports. Whilst the authorities were not saying much whilst "investiations were ongoing", we think the clue might have been the address on the bomb.
Targeting a gay synagogue is an interesting one as the suspected bomb maker's brother was arrested a while back for trying to blow something up and get to the virgins by sticking a bomb up his arse. We're not sure they'd take him in at to the virgins after such cearly gay behaviour and what an ironic twist if he got there and there were gay virgins - who'd clearly had to have died at birth if they were gay virgins and that's wrong however much Islam's detractors in Fox news claim Islam is cool on paedophilia.
The Wall Street Journal reports that one of the packages bore the street address of the Emanuel Synagogue in Chicago and that it specifically referred to the Or Chadesh congregation of gay and lesbian Jews who share facilities with the mainstream synagogue.

Boy George has made the papers again and we're on his side. He was doing a charity gig for free when some woman wouldn't shut up during his act. He reportedly said "Why don't you shut the f*ck up, you rude ****!" before pouring the glass of something over her from the stage. Slightly OTT but we've all wanted people that do that to just p**s off.
The woman was reportedly bored as he wasn't singing her greatest hits for her. Thankfuly she was "left in tears" and quite right too. The Sun newspaper claims everybody walked out in disgust which we doubt. It was a charity gig in Mayfair for The Meningititis Trust. Who'd have thought the diva biatch from hell had such a soft spot.
You can apparently see it on YouTube but buggered if we can find it.
A second serious incident on the tube has police appealing for witnesses in what they are describing as a hate crime.
According to the Met a man was on his way to work when he was subjected to a prolonged homophobic attack. It happened between Bethnal Green and Oxford Circus between 8.30am and 8.50am on Thursday 21 September.
The investigating officer says there were a lot of witnesses and is asking them to come forward and give a statement - in particular they want to hear from two women who offered the female victim support. Was that you? One is described as an Indian woman in traditional dress and other as white with long dark hair.
The suspect is described as "black, about 6’ tall with an athletic build, short black hair and a small moustache. He was wearing an olive green jacket and blue jeans."
