← Tesco slump due to divine intervention, says Christian pressure group

"I now call on Tesco to see sense before their company is ruined. Don't display the arrogance of Pharaoh. Withdraw the grant to Gay Pride."

...said Stephen Green, who blithely ignores the fact that it was his own god who according to Exodus made Ramases II give the thumbs down to abolishing slavery. As I remember from school bible classes, the story suggests that God 'made Pharaoh obstinate' with some mind control jiggery pokery! Nothing like a temporary loss of free will to bring about the brutal final act climax god wants in his own contrived f***ed up narrative!

And somehow Pharaoh gets the blame for that one when he didn't even have personal autonomy. What's the reverse of "Deus ex-machina" again?

Anyhow I would have thought that alleged wifebeating from his ex and rabid homophobia should have consigned this fundamentalist egit's opinions to the irrelevance scrapheap years ago.
