Thought For The Day 2: Professor Roberto De Mattei

"The collapse of the Roman Empire and the arrival of the Barbarians was due to the spread of homosexuality.
"The Roman colony of Carthage was a paradise for homosexuals and they infected many others. The invasion of the Barbarians was seen as punishment for this moral transgression.
"It is well known effeminate men and homosexuals have no place in the kingdom of God.
"Homosexuality was not rife among the Barbarians and this shows God’s justice comes throughout history."

Professor Roberto De Mattei.
This tired old nonsense made it into several British papers today, including The Daily Mail.
Fuck knows what Mr De Mattei is a professor of, but I doubt it's ancient history.
As any fule kno, Rome thrived when it was at its gayest.
Rome fell after they'd turned their backs on the bumming and converted to Christianity.

Update: Was Rome Felled By Gays Or Christianity? by Michael Hamar.


  1. On the contrary it was not Homosexuality that caused the demise of the Roman Empire it was "Christianity"
    Early Christians like the new Evangelicals hate Science & technology, that is why the empire collapsed from the inside out. That is the course of the United States, because of the stupidity of the New Christian Movement, and that stupid Book of Fairy Tales the "Bible". Keep running the country through that stupid book and we will go the way of the Ancient Romans.

  2. It was not Homosexuality that caused the demise of the roman Empire it was the acceptance of Christianity it disinteragted from the inside out. Like the New Christians of today the Evangelicals they did not beleive in Science or technology so it could not adapt to changing times and move forward to improve. The only thing they could beleive in was that Book of Fairy tales the Bible. If this country becomes any more obsessed with that rediculous religion, that will be our demise like the ancient Romans.

  3. Carthage was not a colony of Rome but its arch-enemy. Rome fought two wars against Carthage (the Punic Wars) each one lasting about 100 years. Rome won both wars but had been so terrorized by Carthage's Hannibal the Great that after the Second Punic War,, the Romans completely demolished the city of Carthage until nothing remained. So much for De Mattei's credentials as a historian. Perhaps he's a professor of something else, such as self-denial of his own suppressed homosexuality. Such is usually true of those who, as Shakespeare said, "protest TOO much!"
