Church leaders have emphasized that simply being attracted to someone of the same sex is not a sin and that God loves all of his children.

But those wishing to maintain full membership in the Church are required to commit to a life of celibacy.

The Mormon Church states unequivocally that marriage and sexual relations can only be between a man and a woman who promise complete loyalty to each other and that homosexuality is contrary to God’s plan for his children.

Members in same-sex marriages are considered to be apostates which is an excommunicable offense.

I was watching the Scottish Party Leaders who were participating in a debate on the BBC tonight.
One of the answers given by the Scottish Labour Party Leader, Richard Leonard, confused me.

He said his Party would fight for a shorter working week, a minimum wage of 10 pounds an hour, and an end to zero hours contracts. This from a man who wants us to remain in the EU.

I am puzzled. Why does he have to fight to end zero hours contracts? I thought workers rights were supposed to be one of the benefits of being in the EU?

I guess the striking French railway workers thought their pensions were protected by the EU regulations.

What about the British women who have to work longer to be eligible for a State Pension? Yes I know it was a Tory Government that did that. But why did the EU allow it?

I think the EU is one of those organisations who are good at making up rules. Unfortunately they leave the implementation, and interpretation, of the rules to member states.

Volkswagen is a perfect example. They used modern digital technology to fake the emissions test results of their cars. They then exported their cars all over the globe, knowing they were polluting the environment. Did the EU have any mechanism in place to check up on Volkswagen? No it was the Americans who discovered that Volkswagen was cheating. We are talking thousands of cars here.

So please don’t try and convince me that they EU rules makes for a better life for us all. It is not the rules that matter. It is the resolve to implement them, that counts.

What you imagine in your own free time is your business, Jagz. But I recommend another chat with your GP.

In reply to DannyH: Leonard really is a plonker. The Labour Party has a record of duplicity.



If zero-hours contracts are so bad, how come 68 Labour MPs Employed Staff on Them?

Ed Miliband blasted David Cameron and big business over zero-hours contracts – and pledged to stick up for ordinary workers who are being “exploited.” Speaking in Yorkshire, the Labour leader raged:

“Less than a week ago, you may have heard the Prime Minister say that he couldn’t live on a zero-hours contract. Well, I couldn’t live on a zero-hours contract either. I’ve got a simple principle – if it is not good enough for us, it’s not good enough for you and it’s not good enough for Britain. “That’s the way I will run our country. One rule for all.”

But there was one small problem for Ed. It was revealed by the pay and expenses watchdog IPSA that a large number of Labour MPs employed workers on “zero-hours” contracts.

A damning list of 68 (nearly a quarter of the Labour parliamentary party) included Ed Balls, Lucy Powell, Karen Buck, and Ian Murray.

Labour insist their MPs only use the casual contracts to hire interns or students on flexible deals.

But Steve Turner, Unite regional officer, said last year:

“Parliament passed the laws that are supposed to protect pay and conditions. “Our MPs ought to be upholding them, setting a high standard for employers.

I know i will be happy, and you can be too Kem if you vote for the third largest party at Westminster, and the only party who have consistently opposed Brexit, and are the only party who can stop Brexit.

For once let your head rule your heart. wink.gif

The equal pay policy commitment is most certainly yet another Labour party joke, to be pulled on Scottish workers by the very people they elect, the Unions, to protect their rights at work.

In Glasgow, women involved in the pre-2007 pay claims recall how the GMB union and the Labour Party council pressurized them into accepting low settlements by offering them cheques for a few thousand pounds just before Christmas so long as they signed quickly. Many signed.

But many more held out against the injustice and badly judged advice from their Unions and took their cases to another source of advice. Namely, Action 4 Equality – Scotland managed by Solicitor Stefan Cross.

In doing so they had to wait longer but received far greater settlement sums. Not only did Cross take on Glasgow District Council, but he also sued the unions for failing to properly represent their female members, forcing them to up their game.

In so doing, he made himself hugely unpopular and many still regard him as an ambulance-chaser who got rich off the back of driving English councils to the brink of disaster.

To the women, however, he is a hero, which explains why Cross retained 80 percent of the claimants. “I will have to give him 10 percent of the payout, but he deserves it,” one woman tells me. “He stuck with us when the unions couldn’t be bothered.”

And let's not forget that one of the GMB union representatives advising the women to accept low settlements to save the council money was none other than the current Labour party in Scotland branch manager Tricky Dicky Leonard.

Shameful, but at least the new SNP council got the women the money they deserved. yes.gif
