strictly come dancing
christmas special. the barrel
has been scraped too deep.

It really wouldn’t be Christmas without a nice bit of religious bigotry, and who best to present it but Pope Von Benedict XVI, who brings a whole new meaning to the word pontificate.

“Pope Benedict XVI has said that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behaviour is just as important as saving the rainforest from destruction.
He explained that defending God's creation was not limited to saving the environment, but also about protecting man from self-destruction.
The Pope was delivering his end-of-year address to senior Vatican staff.
His words, later released to the media, emphasised his rejection of gender theory.
Speaking on Monday, Pope Benedict XVI warned that gender theory blurred the distinction between male and female and could thus lead to the "self-destruction" of the human race.” ( news)

His Holiness Pope Herr Flick went on to describe homosexuality as the greatest evil facing mankind, far worse obviously than terrorist fundamentalists, poverty, climate change, war, famine, genocide and ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, more of a threat to the future of humanity in fact than even than the BBC’s ‘Hole In The Wall’, and that’s saying something.
OK Benedict, if you really care about the rainforest, why not start using the vast resources of the Vatican to do something about it, rather than waste time wittering about a subject which you have not researched, and never will, as this would put you into conflict with your own Church’s beliefs.
As far as I am aware, homosexuality is a facet of life for all mammals, not just human beings, and therefore, one imagines, if you believe such nonsense, would appear to be part of God’s plan. I imagine a committee of cardinals is already engrossed in deep theological discussion as to whether gay swans go to hell.
Maybe if Pope Herr Flick and his deluded minions looked at the real issues and allowed contraception to be used by their followers, we might start to sensibly address the overpopulation problem and also make some difference to the problem of AIDS around the world. The issue of surplus population might be a sensitive issue for His Holiness however, considering his rather shady past in Germany, but we won’t go into that.
Other than being informed that I was a threat to the future of Humanity (which actually makes me feel rather like a villain in ‘Heroes’) I had a lovely non-religious Christmas day,
This was only slightly spoiled by the BBC’s insistence on having a ‘Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special’ in which various ‘celebrities’ pair up with real dancers and bore the masses to tears. Not content with the given timescale the show over-ran and buggered up the schedules for the rest of the evening.
