Scared of Gloucestershire…

Some days the news stories seem too much to bear: In the Telegraph, we have a strange piece titled: Let’s get it straight: Irish child abuse was perpetrated by the trendy, modern post-Vatican II Catholic Church where the author seems to have been given space to follow his wholly unsubstantiated (to an extent we wouldn’t tolerate in an essay) line that liberalising Catholic attitudes to sexuality are the main cause of the child abuse scandal.

Then we read in the Guardian: Uganda considers death sentence for gay sex in bill before parliament : Minimum penalty is life in jail, under anti-homosexuality bill; US evangelists are main activists behind measure which tops off a pretty bad day for religon in the press…

anyone have any good news?
