Archbishop Peter Jensen proposes plain packaging for homosexuals

Peter JensenLast night on the ABC’s Q&A program, Sydney Archbishop Peter Jensen backed claims by the Australian Christian Lobby that leading a homosexual lifestyle may be more dangerous to a person’s health than smoking. This morning he went a step further by suggesting that the recent plain packaging laws for cigarettes be extended to homosexuals as well.

Under the proposal, all homosexuals would be forced to wear a drab olive green sack when out in public. “It just makes sense,” Mr Jensen said this morning. “People wearing a green sack will be less attractive to other homosexuals, so it will make it much easier for them to quit their nasty habit. It will put the whole issue to bed, mind the pun!”

Mr Jensen said he would investigate whether other groups within the community that have proven shorter average lifespans –Aborigines and males amongst them – should also be subject to the draconian laws.

The Archbishop said he hoped his idea would be implemented as soon as possible and bring some decency back to public attire. “The way homosexuals dress is just too provocative. If these young men want to continue to get frocked up in fancy colourful outfits, well, they’ll just have to join the priesthood”.

    I’ve been to the Vatican…the amount of gold in St Peters could feed a few nations. Maybe the Catholic church could do with a little dulling down, too, and solve our world hunger issue. But seriously, will Jensen still be Archbishop tomorrow?!?

    You should get your information correct before you start attacking people and institutions. Archbishop Jensen is Anglican NOT Catholic you ignoramus

    Meanwhile, Pope Benedict XVI has claimed that paedophilia wasn’t considered an “absolute evil” as recently as the 1970s & child pornography was increasingly considered “normal” by society….

    I apologise to the Catholic Church for associating them with Archbishop Jensen, and reissue my complaint to the Anglican Church.

    Why make us wear a plain green sack in public. At least let us wear a rainbow coloured one with unicorns and fairies printed on it.
