The latest Times religion blog article is something else worth commenting about – the question is how the Princess Diana bible is not offensive, which states that heterosexuality is a sin, and Jesus was gay, whereas an advert condemning a similar claim as offensive is.
The only taboo is taboo itself?
Thanks JF – that’s exactly what I needed, though I might not have time now until tomorrow to do a suitable blog post.
Si, you make a really interesting point. Thanks!!!!
Happy to help.
The ad hardly looks outrageous to me, but I look forward to your expert comments. It is explicit in condemning violence against homosexuals. Although it doesn’t discuss any distinction between orientation and activity the focus does seem very much on the latter.
