Woman marries fairground ride

Well, why not?

Marriage long since ceased to be the foundation of family life in which children are born and nurtured.

It has ceased being between a man and a woman.

Mayor Boris once observed: "If gay marriage was OK - and I was uncertain on the issue - then I saw no reason in principle why a union should not be consecrated between three men, as well as two men; or indeed three men and a dog."

And if a dog, why not a fairground ride?

Your Grace,

What the blazes is going on?

Did anyone have a chance to raise any objections?

Is the 'marriage' exclusive?

Or can all and sundry ride her 'partner'?

She looks strikingly like my ex!

So that's where she ended up!

That poor, poor fairground ride!

What was he thinking?

Mr Singh,

His Grace believes it is termed 'postmodernity'.

Let's face it, Bish, she's such a moose I wouldn't touch her with yours. I reckon it's the only ride she's ever going to get. ;o)

Will she then divorce it for being unfaithful? (as lots of people will ride it) and then claim that for divorce proceedings she should have half of its earnings??

On an aside, how does the ride acknowledge a yes? or sign the certificate?

Why is everyone surprised? Since traditional marriage has been thrown-out-the-window, there has been all sorts of perversions of marriage committed.

Completely out of topic. I am a right wing, Church of England athiest of strong conviction. However I find myself agreeing with you more than I would wish.

A mystery to me, but I won't be joining you in your beliefs

Mr Frank,

His Grace is delighted, and you are most welcome to his august blog of intelligent and erudite comment upon matters religio-political.

Dr Cranmer,

I hope you realise that this is all the inevitable fruit of the C of E's abandonment of traditional christian morality when it declared contraception licit in 1930...

Mr Christian,

You are a scream.

You'll be saying next that Devil worship is a logical consequence of the Reformation.

I notice she refers to the fairground ride as male, she must have had some very odd male role models in her life!

How will she be consummating the marriage I wonder?

Autism is a strange illness. She can’t really be bundled into the same category as gays who “marry.” A marriage can only be called that if it’s between a man and a woman.
All this liberalism is too much.

So when the fairground ride is old and creaky to the point where WD40 has no effect upon its rusty hinges and she wishes to ride it no longer, I presume this woman will be free to take it to the fairground version of 'Dignitas' to assist it out of its misery possibly with a discreet drink of swarfega, but what happens if the roles are reversed? Will the ride be in a position to offer her a loving drink of something similar? I think we need to be told.

I'm going to propose to my frill skirted Victorian armchair tonight.
As a wedding present I'm giving her
a gift wrapped copy of Kraft -Ebbing's 'Psycopathia Sexualis'

Of course, in the era before political correctness, we'd have described her in accurate terms as a "nut-job" and packed her of to the Bedlam.

In these 'enlightened' times, of course, we must accept that she is entitled to make any lifestyle choices which her deranged mind can create!

I'm in a state of flux as to wether this is sad, daft or humorous or perhaps all three.
But it's wrong to mock the afflicted so I'll just leave

"Church of England atheist" is no longer an oxymoron.

But "right-wing Church of England" probably is.

Much of the C of E is still the Tory party at prayer, but these days it has sold its soul to the political, collectivist projects of Socialism instead of giving it freely to Christ. I'm not sure whether this says more about the current state of the Tory party or the C of E.

Either way they're both political institutions. But it's easier to come to terms with the Tory party for forsaking its principles, rather than the C of E forsaking God.
