Raelian lesbians attack Pope and Catholic Church

Glamour lesbians attack Pope and Catholic Church

A group of glamour lesbians who believe the world was created by an alien civilisation 25,000 years ago have criticised the Catholic Church for being out of touch.

The representatives of the Gay Raelian society yesterday staged a demonstration outside Parliament House to protest the Pope’s arrival for World Youth Day next week.

Raelian spokeswoman Eden Bates said it was an insult that the Pope would be welcomed into Australia when “our gorgeous, fantastic spiritual leader Rael wasn’t even given the respect of a visa”.

Asked the difference between the Church and the tenets of Raelianism, she said: “We are an international, non-profit organisaton that understands that we have been created by an advanced civilisation that came to this planet 25,000 years ago and created everything that we are and everything we see around us.”

Ms Bates said the Raelians didn’t care if a person was gay or straight or bi-sexual or even just a little bit curious.

Knocking the Pope? You’re in a glass house there, Raelians

Raelians are a curious bunch. To begin with, they believe that all life on Earth was spawned by an alien master race called the Elohim. The cult was founded when a French sports car journalist, Claude Vorillhon, had an alleged encounter with an alien.

According to the Raelians, the Elohim spread prophets such as Jesus, Buddha and Mohammed throughout humanity as guides – and that at the end of days the final Elohim will return to deliver the ultimate truth of reality.

Until that time, a large part of the Raelians energy and resources is devoted to constructing landing pads so that Elohim space ships can arrive safely and present their final message.

It seems, while the Elohim were advanced masters of biological design, they weren’t able to get it together to sort out their intergalactic aeronautical problems. But hey – no one’s perfect.

The Raeliens in the NoToPope Coaltion are up in arms about the spread of VD due to condom restriction. But are happy to support the prospect of human cloning.

That’s right, human cloning. Not just stem cell research – actual full-blown human clones.

The Raeliens have close ties with Clonaid – a controversial company that claims to have produced the world’s first human clone, Eve.

For years scientists have researched the disastrous potential effects of cloning, from birth defects to deformities and congenital disease – but Raelians don’t seem to be concerned with those small problems.

So doesn’t it seem just a little bit hypocritical? And I say this in the spirit of protest.

On one hand, they condemn the Catholic Church for breeding venereal disease by restricting condoms, but on the other, they promote a dangerous science that could have potentially more explosive outcomes.

It just doesn’t make sense.
