Damian Thompson Breaks a Lance For Sodom

Edit: does being sinful in any regard make you exempt from stating the Church's teachings, even if you have been a Liberal for most of your career? If anyone is hypocritical, it's Thompson, who embarks on an ecclesiastical hissy fit of dramatic proportions in an all-too familiar conditioned response to fallen churchmen. How much longer before Damian out and swims the Thames in a fit of rage?

Here's an excerpt from the increasingly anti-Catholic Torygraph:

I'm deeply unimpressed by Cardinal Keith O'Brien's vague and guarded admission that "there have been times that my sexual conduct has fallen below the standards expected of me as a priest, archbishop and cardinal". Does he really think he can leave it at that? After raging against gay marriage with a ferocity that was – I suspect – intended to make the English bishops look wimpish and therefore butter up the Vatican?

Scottish Catholics in particular have the right to ask: What the hell do you mean by "sexual conduct"?

And what are we supposed to make of this? "In recent days certain allegations which have been made against me have become public. Initially, their anonymous and non-specific nature led me to contest them."

I guess this is Damian being the rabid ferret. But he used to bite those who attacked his Church.Now he seems to be be joining the attack pack. That's what happens. Rabied animals go completely mad. Damian is clever, but sorry to say he's also a snob.

Thompson has very little to be snobbish about.

He also made a complete fool of himself recently when using his DT column to launch an utterly pathetic and queenly attack on peter Hitchens... going on about cravats and blazers etc.

The man is a preening fool

When people go after Peter Hitchens, they usually don’t have a valid point but are angry about something he said which disagreed with one of their pet vices.
