Millar Farr Believes Law Should Be Based on the Bible?

by Phil O'Kane on August 27th, 2012

“How politicians can imagine they have the right to create legislation which is contrary to holy scripture is beyond belief.”

Millar Farr, Sovereign Grand Master of the Royal Black Institution, spoke at north and west Tyrone demonstration for Black Saturday. According to The Newsletter there were around 1,000 members of the institution on parade in 24 preceptories accompanied by 22 bands from Strabane, Castlederg and Omagh.

In his speech, Farr spoke of the adoration towards the Queen and Royal Family, as usual, while also chiming in on the issue of gay marriage stating:

“In God’s law there is no provision for same-sex marriage,” he said. “Holy scripture is quite clear on the subject – marriage is between male and female only.”

“While man-made laws can be changed, God’s law is unchangeable. How politicians can imagine they have the right to create legislation which is contrary to holy scripture is beyond belief.”

What else would he like to see made illegal?

  1. Did he say anything about how the Bible views some of the sexual behavior of some of the royal family?

    As per the – now famous – scene from The West Wing, I wonder if this prehistoric neanderthal believes we should have laws against planting two different crops side by side, or wearing clothes made from two different fabrics. And of course we should implement strict rules about selling youre children in to slavery. As per the bible, you see. Scripture above all.

    Seriously, this sort of mindbogglingly backwards thinking deserves nothing but scorn and ridicule.

      Much of what you mention was specific to the Jews

      • “….specific to the Jews”

        That is how Christians interpret it, yes, but it is the type of interpretation that will seem strained to any non-Christian.

    I have only contempt for Farr’s poisonous vomit
