In addition to Migrationwatch, The Taxpayers' Alliance and other assorted gobshites we now have a new arrival: The Rev Peter Mullen, chaplain to the London Stock Exchange. It's certainly understandable that traders are in need of prayer at this time, so now Peter is on hand to provide the necessary ecumenical weight and gravitas to the laterst top story.
Royal Mail has been condemned for releasing a set of stamps that include controversial family planning pioneer Marie Stopes.
From today her face will appear on the 50p stamp in the Women of Distinction set, which commemorates the achievements of six women.Stopes was accused of being racist because of her support for eugenics - the 'perfection of the race' through selective breeding.
Leaving aside the nauseating feeling of seeing the Mail go on about Nazis after its support of the '30s, who does the paper call on to back its claim that the design has been condemned. None other than the Rev. Mullen.
- The Rev Peter Mullen, chaplain to the Stock Exchange, branded Stopes a 'Nazi sympathiser'. He said: 'She campaigned to have the poor, the sick and people of mixed race sterilised.'
- for homosexuals to be tattooed with warnings about the perils of gay sex in a cigarette-packet-style health warning.
In the blog, Mr Mullen wrote: 'Let us make it obligatory for homosexuals to have their backsides tattooed with the slogan SODOMY CAN SERIOUSLY DAMAGE YOUR HEALTH.'In addition, the obscene 'gay pride' parades and carnivals should be banned for they give rise to passive corruption, comparable to passive smoking. Young people forced to witness these excrescences are corrupted by them.'
- '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.'

Rathbone : Woman MP and early critic of the Nazis
Stopes of course also pionerred contraception advice and established Family Planning Clinics.
The sad thing is that the Mail story apparently took 2 journalists to write. One to look at Wikipedia, the other to telephone the Rentaquote Rev.
