I know some of you toffee-nosed traddies out there think I am an uneducated person. You sneer at me, and my church, and my literary efforts, and maybe at my theology too.
Because I've got news for you.
I was googling 'homophobia', my bete noir yesterday, and came across this, which seems to be a Roman Catholic hymn about judgement day from way back when. Seems to be called "Dies Irae". So who is Ira, and why must she die? Ira Gershwin perhaps? Do we have some anti-semitism here? It wouldn't surprise me, with Uber-unter-sturmbahnfuhrer Rantstinker in charge. What a lot!
You with me so far? Good. And I quote -
"Lacrimosa dies illa
Cum resurget ex favilla
Judicandus homo reus"
So, I go to my Latin dictionary, and look up reus, and what do I find? It means, as far as I can make out, 'guilty' or 'thing'.
So homos (gays) are either guilty or things. You pays yer money and you takes yer choice.
I protest! Yes, I bloody well do! They are neither.
THEY ARE NORMAL!!! Think of all the great people in modern life - Elton Johns, Liberatchy, Goering, who painted his toenails, W. H. Orden that great poet.
Give me strength!!!
The RC Quurch needs cheering, ASAP!
