View Full Version : Gay men should be forced to have 'health warning' tattoos, says Stock Exchange chaplain

The chaplain to the London Stock Exchange is under pressure to quit today after demanding gay men should be forced to have 'sodomy' warnings tattooed on their bodies.

The suggestion is contained in a series of comments on the internet blog of the Rev Peter Mullen.

The Bishop of London today branded Mr Mullen's comments 'highly offensive' and Stonewall, the gay rights charity, said he should resign.

Mr Mullen, 66, wrote on his blog: 'It is time that religious believers began to recommend... discouragements of homosexual practices after the style of warnings on cigarette packets.

'Let us make it obligatory for homosexuals to have their backsides tattooed with the slogan SODOMY CAN SERIOUSLY DAMAGE YOUR HEALTH and their chins with FELLATIO KILLS.'

In the same blog, Mr Mullen, who is also rector of St Michael's Cornhill and St Sepulchre without Newgate in the City, also calls for all gay pride parades - which he brands 'obscene' - to be outlawed.

In another internet posting, the rector wrote a poem condemning the blessing of two gay priests at a 'wedding' which the Rev Martin Dudley performed at his church St Bartholomew the Great in the City.

The poem begins: 'The Bishop of London is in a high huff, Because Dr Dudley has married a puff; And not just one puff - he's married another: Two priests, two puffs and either to other.'
The ceremony, which took place in the summer, was roundly condemned by the Bishop of London, the Rt Rev Richard Chartres, as a breach of Church of England rules. But the bishop today also rebuked Mr Mullen for his remarks.

In a statement issued to the Evening Standard, a spokesman said: 'While clergy are entitled to their own personal views, we recognise that the content of this text is highly offensive and is in no way reflective of the views of the Diocese of London.'

A source at the Diocese said the chaplain may now face a disciplinary inquiry over his comments.

The source said: 'These comments are now being looked at internally within the Diocese and he faces disciplinary procedures.'

Ben Summerskill, Stonewall's chief executive, said today: 'If I was a member of the Stock Exchange I would be wondering whether he is the right person to be chaplain in the opening years of the 21st century. We have talked to one or two gay people in the City and they would be perfectly happy if he were to go.'

When confronted over his comments yesterday at St Michael's Cornhill the rector claimed they were in jest.

He said: 'I wrote some satirical things on my blog and anybody with an ounce of sense of humour or any understanding of the tradition of English satire would immediately assume that they're light-hearted jokes. I certainly have nothing against homosexuals. Many of my dear friends have been and are of that persuasion.

'What I have got against them is the militant preaching of homosexuality.'

Nicola Beckley, who has been Mr Mullen's parishioner for the past 10 years, said: 'He's a great leader and doesn't cloud his views in political correctness.'

I hope they aren't serious. According to the buy-bull, tattoos are wrong. Yet they are saying homosexuals should get tattoo's about their sexuality? I'm sorry, they are calling them 'health warnings.'

My question is, why don't the religious get the ink if it's so important.

Also as for the whole 'FELLATIO KILLS' shit. [citation needed]

How about we tattoo their foreheads with "RELIGION KILLS".

I think that would be more accurate.

On another forum I was having an interesting debate on weather being Gay is againest God. Turns out it is not in the new testement at all. Jesus never said anything againest it. He supported to love the fellow man, so he was for it! the old testiment however was againest it but that was god wispering into peoples ears so they could have ruined the word to there will.

Wasn't Jesus from the middle east where they believe women are for babies and men are for pleasure?

It's more about being against sodomy then it is about being a homosexual. Also they mention that in Religilous.

So it's decided . . .

The butt tatoo should read:
"WARNING!! ENTRY MAY CAUSE DISRUPTION IN HOLY SPIRIT. WOMEN WHO MAY BE PREGNANT AND MEN WHO HAVE READ ACTS, ROMANS I-II, OR CORINTHIANS I-II MAY SUFFER ADDITIONAL RISK. CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN, PRIEST, SPIRIT GUIDE OR WITCH DOCTOR BEFORE ENTRY."
