The young man looked at the wizened, old, Presbyterian vicar with a mix of disgust and stratospheric hubris and said, "old man, what do you think about same-sex marriage?" The old parson looked at the young man with his Victorian beard and skinny jeans and replied, "It doesn't matter what I think but what God thinks and he is against it."
Sensing his trap closing in rapidly around the seasoned saint the young philosopher countered, "In a Greco-Roman world filled with pederasty and emperors who liked boys, why did Jesus say boo about it...well?"

He also never mentioned anything about heroin use, serial murder or Lady Gaga so I suppose those things are all good with you too?"
