  • Are these programs available on iTunes?

  • I found it a little dis-heartening just how hard it seemed for host it to register just was Madeleine was saying about relationships.

  • Btw- What’s with this liberal radio host that Rhema has doing talkback these days? I heard this morning (Saturday, 26th) the guy interviewing some liberal in America I think. He asked him in an affirmative tone of voice if he’s from the same organisation that runs Bishop Spong’s website! (He was.) I didn’t hear the whole thing; just caught a few minutes, so I can’t give a full account of the segment.
    They seemed to be talking mainly about the proposed Obamacare mandate on contraception and abortion pills (and surgical abortion?) which would force private individuals and hospitals to go against their religion (you know, in the same way forcing a Muslim surgeon to handle pig body parts would be too politically incorrect…. whereas Catholics, and their beliefs, are fair game.) The result was the usual propaganda that completely ignored the central issue of religious freedom.
    A bit worrying to hear! (Because I much more prefer to hear rightwing propaganda which stubbornly refuses to be swayed by emotional arguments. :))) )

  • madeleine – comparing a gay relationship with an incestuous relationship is so weak…different health issues and power issues between those relationship.
    Everything you said contradicted back on itself, you have no logic and you should engage your brain before going on the radio.
    I’d suggest you don’t bother trying to make sexuality a barrier to human rights…sicko

    So if a father conceived a daughter but never knew of her existence the daughter grew up not knowing who her father was and when she was 30 she met him at a social event, felt an attraction, formed a mature and supportive relationship based on mutual trust and respect and then wanted to get married and discovered she was infertile that would be their right?

    No health issues. No power issues. Consenting adults. Love. Committment. That is all you need right?

    One should not “bother trying to make sexuality a barrier to human rights afterall” or else one is a “sicko”.

  • Lets face it mother-son or father-daughter incest is as old as human history and happens ‘naturally’ in the animal kingdom all the time. It must be right. Far more common amongst animals than homosexuality.

  • A romantic relationship between same-sex adult triplets would also meet fatty’s categories of relationships that are human rights.

    Health issues no different as between gay couples and power imbalances are less likely if we are talking about consenting adults of the same age and same family status within the greater family.

  • If health issues are a justifiable ground for denying someone the “human right” of marriage then why are disabled people, people with genetic disorders, women in their forties, drug addicts allowed to marry or procreate?

    If power imbalances are a justifiable ground for denying someone the “human right” of marriage then why are CEO’s allowed to marry check-out operators? 40 year olds allowed to marry 18 year olds? Control freaks allowed to marry doormats?
