a world scoop? My sources have just revealed what the Media hasn’t even touched
upon. Is this what you are not supposed to know?
It’s what President Zuma, South Africa’s Number One ladies
man, who has four wives, whispered to blonde bombshell
Today the business section of the Johannesburg based The Times carried this picture headed, Passing Comment: PresidentJacob
Zuma whispers to CNBC Africa presenter Bronwyn
Nielsen at the annual meeting of the World Economic
Forum in Davos yesterday.
As you can see the photographer caught this
touching moment brilliantly and many
of you would surely have wanted to know what he whispered that was so hush,
Was it business as usually or something more important?Hopefully I won’t be breaking any state
secrecy laws if I now reveal what he said.
who believes in telling you what you are not supposed to know.
I see your This is the businesscolumn in the Sunday Times has now become
a family advice bureau aimed specifically at gay parents and the promotion of the Catholicideology.
Of course they should tell their
children that their relationship isneither
the norm nor ultimately desirable.
But would this sound advice help little Johnnie when it comes
to explaining to his class mates that he has two fathers or mothers when
everybody else has one?
What advice do you have for mixed
parents, one White and one Black? Should they tell their children how unnatural
These kinds of permutations are
You have certainly stirred up the gay
lobby. You tried to make your point as tactfully as possible, but when you
mentioned you were Catholic you
opened a much bigger can of gays.
As you said the US
is gradually recognising gay marriages notwithstanding the powerful opposition of the Catholic Church.
That’s hypocrisy with a capital P. Your
church has never recognised marriage of any kind within its priesthood.
Kissing men evidently has your blessing Your Holiness
Perhaps in your next column you could
tell Pope BenedictXVI that what so many of his priests get up to isneither thenorm nor ultimately desirable.
By not allowing priests or Fathers as they are affectionate called to marry your
church has produced thousands of hot house gays.
These undesirables have gained the
confidence of communities in the
name of God, with the full backing of the Catholic Church that has stood idly by when children’s
lives have been ruined for ever. Choir boys have their backs to the wall in
And those priests who want a bit of
variety have taken theirFather title too literally with choir girls and even mothers
in their flock.
This is the
businessin your church that has been so lax in
doing something about it. It has
certainly ensured that we now all know the meaning of Cardinal Sin.
A kiss to build a marriage on
The preservation of the species suggests that instructing
children that same-sex matrimony is the same as that of heterosexuals flies in
the face of reason,
you told us.
What possible reason could there be for
continuing to insist that priests and nuns remain celibate, especially as the Roman(or is it Roamin?)Catholic Church is
the largest Christian Church in the world
with more than a billion members.
Isn’t that contrary to the natural law, which
is the reason the one true church founded by Jesus Christ gives for
its anti-gay stance. This is even more peculiar when one thinks of what a bad
name this policy has consistently given the church.
Your recent column raises two
journalistic issues. Should a columnist use the space allocated to
him to push the views of his own religion? And secondly what are you doing
knocking gays in the Business Section
of the Sunday Times?
Surely you were expected to write about
business, not anything that comes to mind.
Times has psychologist Judith Ancer, who
writes a column every week telling us how to treat our children. So did it need
another one in the Business Section?
I have complained
before that the really queer business is that the paper gives its columnists
mandates, but doesn’t make them stick to them.
Jon, who always bends over to please
everybody. P.S. Steve when you are next in Rome can you ask His Holiness if, when giving a Papal Kiss, you should stick your tougue out or keep it in?
