Oh, the irony.

by Caleb Reading

Nov 11 1634 “Under the urging of Anglican Bishop John Atherton, the Irish House of Commons passes ‘An Act for the Punishment for the Vice of Buggery’. Seven years later, the good Bishop Atherton is the second man hanged for Buggery under that Act.”

Nov 11 1215 “The Fourth Lateran Council meets. They adopt the doctrine of transubstantiation, meaning that bread and wine are transformed into the body and blood of Christ. This turns all Catholics into Cannibals on a feeding schedule, but who are we to comment on theology.”

Got both of these off The Daily Rotten (NSFW so I won’t link to it).
