A vicar has refused a donation because the charity golf and dinner event raising the money features “bunny girls” in high heels, stockings and bunny ears and tails handing out champagne to the guests. (Metro).
Following complaints from some parishioners the Reverend Peter Wood, vicar of Cambourne, Cambridgeshire has refused the money saying that clergymen cannot be seen to be associating with such an enterprise. The organisers of the event, due to be held at a local golf club, have described the church as “living in the dark ages”.
Meanwhile a city-based Church of England clergyman, the Rev. Dr Peter Mullen, 66 has suggested in his blog that gay men should have their backsides tattooed with the slogan SODOMY CAN SERIOUSLY DAMAGE YOUR HEALTH. Mullen, a chaplain to the Stock Exchange claimed his suggestion was satirical and would be understood as such by anyone with “an ounce of a sense of humour” and an appreciation of traditional English satire.
Gay English clergy and politicians appreciating satire were apparently unavailable for comment.
