Stephen Fry on The Catholic Church

The Intelligence² Debate – Stephen Fry (Unedited)

My respect for Mr  Fry knows no bounds, as I love his writing, his comedy,  his documentaries, and QI is undoubtedly the funniest of all those fukkin awful celebrity quizzes that TV has been infected with of late

This, however, puts him in a different category altogether … a truly fine human being

This debate on whether the Catholic Church is a force for good is astonishing in many senses … Christopher Hitchens attacks like a bulldog and enumerates a litany of the church’s outrageous crimes from the past up to the present, in a highly vociferous, but highly  unentertaining, manner

Archbishop Nicebutdim is an embarrassment in an intellectual debate of this weight … Who the fukk chose him?

Ann Widdecombe leaves me speechless in astonishment … I’ve never been a fan of the MP’s we have in this country, but this woman’s level of inarticulate, hysterical blather makes me cringe to think that she actually held a Cabinet position at one time … a fukkin moron!!

Her own argument is illogical, innacurate, and avoids all the major issues posed

Watch the whole debate if you’ve got time … or simply marvel at the eloquence, passion, and restraint of a highly moral man … Stephen Fry

I’ve never ever voted or fancied trying gay sex, but if I did, Fry would be in with a chance … on both counts



Archbishop Nicebutdim



Semi-regularly, I drop in for a wee visit, to the Hidden Glasgow Forum, whose topics range from Old Glasgow-New Glasgow photo comparisons, which are great and sometimes surprising, to debates over the biggest daftness imaginable

Here’s a memorable interchange that I spotted, for example

Re: Station Cafe

Used to get chips from the said Station Cafe, before getting the 41 bus home to Barlanark in the 70’s … stopped going there when the Evening Times printed a story about someone finding a deep fried fag in their chips

That was a bit hasty …

You could’ve given them the benefit of the doubt









My Fellow Blogger, Muso-Moothymaestro, and Pet-Worrier, Big Rab

has once again perspired, conspired, and inspired me to add more to this blog by showing me, by his fine example, just how interesting and positive a blog can be, and how it can help to provide a relative antidote to the ever-negative, fear-inducing, paranoiac fantasists who produce and distribute our Daily Media

Or, to put it more simply, for the terminally thick:

After watching The News, and being demoralised, and then having your intelligence insulted by the pap that is Big Brother ….

It fair cheers ye up

Also, Rab’s latest postings introduced me to another cracking good blog

A really interesting and thoughtful collection of positivity that I can highly recommend

Another fine blog ye got me inty, Rab

Rab has also featured one of my wee poem videos. SEE POLITIX … Which made me think about doing the same

SEE POLITIX … A poem that I wrote some 200 years ago, and is, unfortunately, still quite relevant

I did the graffix and the wee vid last year, 2008, in hotel rooms while away gigging
