Bishop belongs in the Bronze Age
The Anglican Bishop of Carlisle was mocked today as a "bronze age primitive" by the UK Gay and Lesbian Humanist Association (GALHA).
GALHA's comments follow Bishop Graham Dow's pronouncement that the recent floods in Britain are a result of the introduction of pro-gay laws. He said that going against biblical standards had resulted in God's judgment in the form of floods.
GALHA's chairman Jim Herrick said: "The Bishop's comments reveal a primitive, superstitious mind that belongs in the Bronze Age. If he thinks these floods are the result of pro-gay laws rather than global warming, then how come far more catastrophic floods afflict homophobic nations such as Bangladesh? And how come ultra-pious nations such as Pakistan suffer catastrophic earthquakes? And the self-proclaimed religiosity of the United States doesn't protect it from lethal hurricanes either."
