WHOLE OF EDINBURGH CONFUSED- BESTIALITY IN STREETS

From PINK NEWS:

A Scottish Episcopal church in Edinburgh has unveiled a mural of two men marrying in a religious ceremony. St John’s Church on Princes Street, one of Edinburgh’s main streets, has a history of topical murals going back thirty years, displayed in full view to passers-by on the busy road.

Donald Reid, Associate Rector at the church, said many photographs have been taken but there had been no negative feedback to the mural whatsoever since it was erected on Saturday. The image of two men, one about to place a ring on the other’s finger while a priest looks on under the words ‘God is love’ should stay up on the side of the church for two weeks.

    • Glad to hear it! The artist has obviously never seen an SEC cleric at an SSB – fabulous rather than inept and dowdy is the liturgical dress code!

  3. I’m not getting the post headline, nor the Shoppe caption. Then again, I’m “either American, Prebyterian, incompetent or all of the aforementioned” (NOT Presbyterian!)

  4. I suppose given that a Scot seems to be marrying a Scot, that the cleric could be a Presby/

  5. They are Scottish gay men, Boaz. Therefore they are a little more dour than the surfing, lager drinking gays you are used to down there in Australia.
