His name is Stephen Green, he is Aries, loves bubbles in his bath and anything by Cliff Richards and his catchphrase is ‘The Bible calls for the ultimate penalty for sodomy.’ By ‘ultimate penalty’ read ‘stoning, tarring and/or feathering, hanging, drawing, quartering’.
Yes, he is a nasty piece of work with a religious bent (ooh, he knows his Bible, does Stephen, even if he doesn’t know a half decent dental practitioner), someone who vocally supported Ugandan measures to put gays to death. And he now has his own platform on Channel 4! Don’t you just love telly?
The show – so you can circle it in your Radio Times – is 4Thought and, over a week, it will explore ‘radically different perspectives’ on homosexuality and sin, up to and including the idea that God can cure gayness (well, if she can cure it, why did she invent it in the first place? Oh, it’s those famous ‘mysterious ways’ again, is it?)
Future episodes of 4Thought will feature people who think that black people are retarded and like to nick things, Jews love the glitter of money and are all in on a global conspiracy to take over the world and women are all a bunch of slags who deserve a good cutting up.
Oh, no, sorry, those ones have been cancelled. It’s just the gay ones that are going ahead.
