City Chaplain in Gay Tattoo Row

I don't care if it is meant to be in jest. It has caused offence and he should apologise. Surely the first concern of a Chaplain is to be sensitive and have a strong pastoral heart, whatever his or her theological beliefs. Making such jokes, and then failing to apologise makes one question if the Rev Peter Mullen is lacking in that area

If this was meant as a joke then yes - an apology is in order but people shouldn't automatically apologise for causing affence - Jesus frequently caused affence because he challenged people and situations - there was no reason for him to apologise because he was doing the right things for the right reasons.
