Well, if someone wants to join a “church” founded by a fat king so he could get some fresh p****, who am I to stop them?

    “Heh” is right, BCF! Hard to top Ms Shaidle’s comment. In regard to the piece itself, my concern with Coren is that changing his religion is only *one* aspect of what’s going on with him.
    I am more interested in (and disturbed by) his comments about Pam Geller and Garland which indicated a seemingly profound lack of respect for and perhaps understanding of freedom of speech. After the initial shock and anger I felt upon reading that, I’ve settled on distrust of anything he subsequently says or writes.

      First he embraced Big Gay. Then he embraced the Anglican Church. Now he’s embraced Sharia law. The only thing left for him to do is going to Mosul to get tossed off a tall building.

        We could call it a “glitter bombing”!

  • David

    I expect to hear that he will soon be having “gender reassignment” surgery

      Either way it is hair plug time.if there is enough left that is

    Or you can follow Henry VIII’s twitter feed…

    Go watch his debate with Charles McVety . . .

    You, me, and everyone knows that McVety is trotted out because he’s the caricature’s caricature, a Canadian Jim Bakker with the loopy voice and mannerisms. Because according to the MSM, Christians aren’t normal. So if anyone is turned off by what he says, hey, mission accomplished!

      He is a leftoids dream of a
      Loopy non representative Christian

    King Henry was so much more than a fat old king,he was also homicidal possibly
    due to his tertiary syphilis and his gangrenous leg wound which was probably a diabetic ulcer.yet given all this he was still better than the corrupt pope and the flocks of decadent cardinals of the day

      A fair assessment of a mercurial and contradictory personality. He needed today’s medications to calm him down.

  • Sorry but Michael Coren’s reasons for (perhaps temporarily) leaving the Catholic Church are self-serving and unfounded. He became tender in the face of more blunt criticism of gay issues, turned and ran. I hope he does return as Newman did but until then he has some thinking to do.

    Henry Tudor started his own band for Royal Court groupies. Everybody knows it.

  • Funny. When I read the header “If Someone Wants To Join A “Church” Founded By A Fat King So He Could Get Some Fresh P****” – I thought the article was about Mohammad, who also founded a “church” (called mosque) just to get him some pussy. LOL. I guess I have a one-track mind when it comes to Islamophobia.

      Especially that Koran verse that allows Muhammad to marry more than four wives…..

      Koran 33:50
      ‘…..and any believing woman who dedicates her soul to the Prophet if the Prophet wishes to wed her;- this only for thee, and not for the Believers (at large)….’


    • That’s normal – Old Mo, Henry VIII and Joseph Smith used the same reasoning to start their own churches (or cults).

    The triumphalist and sophomoric smugness of Shaidle’s slur is an example of the repellant hubris that drives many from the arms of Rome. I know many victims of Rome who hurt by it, have fled to find compassion, understanding, true friendships and a sense of humour in the Anglican denomination. Shame on all of you for being so childish.
    ‘Henry’ with all his sins was no more the cause of the Reformation in England than the sinful Sultan of Brunei was the cause of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. If anything, ‘Henry’ stopped the church from going as far as the Scottish Presbyterians.
    And, I can assure you snigglers, the Anglican church has many real saints. Get out of your comfortable prejudices and meet people because your factoids don’t jibe with reality.

      I don’t think the intent of her comment was to slight Anglicans in general (but even if it was, so what?). It was just a joke, even if possibly offensive to some. Unlike followers of a certain religion/ideology, *we* can make jokes about various religions, including our own, and say offensive things about them, without getting all in a lather about things.

      • winniec

        It’s a stale joke and its a vicious, personal, ad hominem attack on a fine man, Michael Coren. I resent the personal attack. Shame on you for defending it.

        • andycanuck

          You know around 9/11 he was making excuses for Islam and it was only the few years ago that he started to go after shariah etc.? (And has he turned his back on that now too? A commenter here intimated that.)

          He called a woman to his first post-9/11 phone-in TV-show a liar and cut her off when she said she was at a 7-11-style corner store and the Moslem owner was jubilant about the terror attacks.

      Sometimes there’s just not enough caring and sharing going around.


  • David

    I would have thought that the new marxist pope and coren would have made a cozy fit.

    • andycanuck

      Still not pro-big-gay enough I guess.

    Michael Coren is a conscientious and courageous defender of Western civilization. He deserves much praise. Sometimes we agree to disagree with our best friends. Coren is one of our best friends.
