He handle himself well.

The Small Talk feature is normally a light hearted phone interview  but they were clearly gunning for something controversial there.

Marvin did a good job of putting across his opinion on homosexuality without expressing predjudice.

I don't understand how 'religious' people reconcile their condemnation of homosexuality with the Bible.

As far as I understand it God created all things.....including homosexuals, which by the way occurs with other primates not just mankind.  So one would either have to dislike one of God's own creatures or face the fact the God isn't perfect and made a mistake.

Either way they're full of ****.

QED  ;D

More importantly though......the Lion is the King of Beasts but the Tiger is King of the Jungle and frankly with lions they move in groups and the females do most of the work.  Tigers are solitary and do it all on their own.

Marvin needs to get that stuff right before pontificates on the sexual preferences of others.

Even among lower primates homosexuality is aberrant so that's hardly evidence of it's normalcy.  That said, the bible thumpers would do well focus their attention on the sins actually listed in the Ten Commandments...start the fire there before you look to bun out gays.

A few hundred years ago they used burn people at the stake for having opposing views.  Attitudes like that die hard...even in these modern times.  I don't promote homosexuality.........I oppose ignorance.

The funny thing is that the people that hate gays the most tend to be in the closet themselves...something about the manifestation of self-hatred or something like that.

recently when Senator Larry Craig was caught in the washroom sting there was was a psychologist talking on See Nen Nen and he was saying that same thing. He says it is the ones who complain the most and have families are the ones he says are the ones who are the closet gays.
people in Jamaica who promote the death of gays can KCUF themselves. I am sure they do it in the closet already.

Ex-Rangers star Marvin Andrews slammed by gay rights campaigners after claiming homosexuals have 'spirit sickness'
By Chris Clements (Daily Record)


FORMER Rangers star Marvin Andrews has come under fire from gay rights groups after claiming homosexuals have a “spiritual sickness”.

The Trinidad-born defender, now an assistant pastor at a Scots church, made the comments in a passage written for a book by his mentor, Pastor Joe Nwokoye.

Nwokoye attracted ridicule earlier this year when he blamed natural disasters such as floods on God’s anger at gay marriage.

Andrews, 38, wrote: “For a man to see a man or a woman to see a woman in that way is a spiritual sickness and it is the Bible – not Marvin Andrews – that says that is an abomination.

“I am not going to contradict my beliefs. I don’t care if 100,000 people are against me – I’ll stand on the word of God.”

Rob McDowall, chairman of the campaign group LGBT Network, last night described the statement as “odious”.

He said: “I am a strong advocate of free speech and the right to practise one’s religion freely but Marvin Andrews is distorting the teachings of the Bible to justify his intolerance of LGBT persons,.

“What happened to God and God only being the judge?

“While it may suit Andrews to misinterpret 20 verses of the Bible out of around 31,000, Christianity is about love and tolerance.

“It is shameless to manipulate the text of the Bible to justify intolerance of people who are simply wishing to live life as they were born.

“If Marvin is telling me that God no longer loves all of his children … then it is evident we don’t praise the same God.”

Tim Hopkins, of the Equality Network, added: “Tens of thousands of LGBT people in Scotland who are Christians have a very different view to Marvin Andrews.

“Their Christianity is a religion that values love, not exclusion, one that welcomes people who live in loving, supportive families and relationships.”

Andrews works alongside Nwokoye at the Zion Praise Centre in Kirkcaldy.

The footballer – who also had spells with Raith Rovers and Livingston – wrote about his beliefs and his career for Nwokoye’s book, God Will Do It For You.

He insisted he did not hate gay people but believed their behaviour was wrong.

Andrews bizarrely claimed: “There are people who have come to the church saying they are gay but their spirit has changed and they have gone on to get married to a member of the opposite sex.”

Colin Macfarlane, of Stonewall Scotland, said: “The majority of Scots support same-sex marriage and we’re sure that no reasonable person will take these mean-spirited comments seriously.”

I am glad to see Marvin has found his new calling as a pastor. But that is as far as it goes.
