People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones

The Archbishop of Canterbury's claim that it's "unthinkable" that the Ten Commandments could ever be introduced in Britain today came under attack from his own senior clergy.

The Bishop of Southfork, the Ultra-Conservative Right-Wing Nuthouse Tom "Howdy" Hustler, who hates homosexuals and abortionists, cast doubts on the argument that the Ten Commandments could never come into force in the UK ever.

He said: "It will be a great idea to enforce a few Christian Thou Shalt Nots, especially the new bits about gays and abortionists and then we'll see some damned good stonings."

Asked on BBC Radio 4's Today programme whether Dr Rowan Williams should have been more diplomatic in his speech which sparked the controversy, Dr Hustler said: "The Archbishop is probably gay."

He said: "Like all bishops I'm waking up this morning with a headache brought on by moralizing hypocrisy."

Gay Culture Secretary Andy Bender launched a ferocious defence of the Archbishop of Canterbury's claims about the Ten Commandments. The Cabinet minister said introduction of the Ten Commandments in the UK would be a "recipe for social chaos" with people doing all sorts of wrong things they never even knew were in the Ten Commandments.

Dr Williams faced a barrage of criticism for saying that the Ten Commandments would never be legal in the UK, but with moralizing hypocrites like Tom Hustler about, it quite possibly will be.

This morning it emerged that the Ten Commandments crime courts are already operating in parts of Britain.

According to a youth worker, a group of Swansea youths were released by police after being "ticked off" for disobeying their parents. But the family told officers the matter should be settled in court under the charge of "not obeying the Ten Commandments". A Ten Commandments court was set up and elders sentenced the assailants to a ten minute stoning.
