Apostles "all men" outrage!

Womens groups have noticed that all of Jesus' apostles are men and that this flies in the face of todays Equality agenda.




Lizzy Bendick of the Femminist Action Now Not Yesterday! demanded that  PM David Cameron brought an end to this blatant injustice.
A spokesperson for the Prime Minister said that he had promised action "in this Parliament" to ensure full representation for Women at The Last Supper and that Nick Clegg was chairing an Action Group investigating the complete absence of ethnic minorities, culture enrichers, LGBTG persons, the elderly, skateboarders  and the disabled from The Last Supper.

The Archbishop Of Canterbury issued a statement saying that "In the fullness of time we will be issuing an apology on behalf of the Church but we are a bit busy right now what with it being Xmas and that".

Meanwhile Ed Miliband claimed that he had tweeted The Pope asking for his support but says that the Supreme Pontiff had not got back to him.
A source at New Scotland Yard revealed that there were no plans to scour the country for copies of The Last Supper since it was "not designated 'hate-crime', yet"'
 
Lizzy was later overheard confiding to a girlfriend "This'll get the bastards on the run. We'll go for the monastaries next; if girls can be boy scouts why can't they be monks too?"

I'm not sure if you are taking the piss or if this is real - after all, look what they are doing with insurance premiums. And, on that subject, what the hell has a UK insurance premium got to do with the EU anyway?

Let's hear it for the ladies . . .

Well, there is some dispute over that "all men" thing. I was having a chat with Mary Magdalene the other day ...

"the elderly, skateboarders and the disabled"

We may need to save on numbers, so an elderly disabled skateboarder would be useful here.

D, it's all about the EUs mania about 'equality' but if everthing within the EU was the same why would I bother going on holiday there?

Woodsie, nowt wrong with the ladies, everybody in their place.

James, "Goodwill to..." and all that? Probably came from a time when "men" included "women", as in mankind.

AKH, good point about numbers; perhaps Thomas could do one as a cross dressing Innuit of uncertain sexuality?

Progressives have little problem with rewriting history to conform with what they see as comtemporary standands. Just retouch the old painting a bit and problem solved. Paul can easily become Pauline and James, Jamie.

Hi Ron, my point exactly and a little dig at the way politicians in our country presume to tell the church how to run its affairs.

UPDATE
The BBC is to broadcast a searing expose revealing that L. so-called Da Vinci was in fact a raging serial peadophile whose studio was amock with bum-boys and catamites (edit victims).

When shown this evidence Inspector Knacker of The Yard announced a total crackdown on The Last Supper and zero-tolerance policing for owners therof. "We will show no mercy for displayers of this worthless piece of tat, Pope or no Pope" he is quoted as saying.
