Cliff Richard and the case for same-sex 'covenants'
The witterings-on about Cliff Richard's companionship with Father John McElynn make me laugh. The Bible sets a precedent for "covenants" between same-sexers with the much-told tale of Jonathan and David in the Old Testament - 1 Samuel 18:3: "Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul." In verse 4: "And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was upon him, and gave it to David, and his apparel, even to his sword, and to his bow, and to his girdle." When Jonathan is killed David says (2 Samuel 1:26): "I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan: Very pleasant hast thou been unto me: Thy love to me was wonderful, Passing the love of women." The biblical words about this relationship might serve to shape a useful vow in all partnership rituals, civil, religious, cock-cocking, cunt-cunting, cock-cunting, cunting-dildo-strap-on-cock, cock-cock-cunting, Richard-McElynn, (and other variations).
