Last year Mitropolit Vladimir, the flamboyant ponce who heads Moldova’s Orthodox Church, praised presidential candidate Igor Dodon, above, right, as ‘a true Christian’.

Australian Christians told to butt out of matters of state

Australia can’t bring itself to legalise same-sex marriage because of interference from Christian prodnoses.

Heaven populated by gays says Catholic priest Fr James Martin

Apologise? No way!

A FEW months back I was appointed by Round Town News, a weekly newspaper on the Costa Blanca in Spain, to write a regular, LGBT-slanted column, and in the Easter edition I reported on the death of Gilbert Baker, above, the San Francisco artist who, in 1978, created the rainbow for the LGBT community.
