After all, no one goes up to the doors of a church in Wittenberg and nails 95 theses containing a repetitive rant of "Weeeerrrapeeepul" to it and gets away with it.
Yes folks, daft as the above sounds, the black propaganda machine in trying to defend Rangers 1872-2012 FC's inexcusable behaviour re: EBT use, is now playing the sectarianism card.
A couple of stand-out passages are as follows....
Rangers 1872-2012 FC were found at the appeal hearing of the big tax case to have done wrong. At no point did those presiding over the hearing mention religion or sectarianism and neither did the representatives of either party contesting this case.
On the surface this conveys the impression of trying to turn the tables on those wanting genuine sporting integrity in order to correct a huge wrong inflicted by one (now deceased) club upon Scottish football.
It's known as the art of deflection.
Those in the wrong or those seeking to gain an unfair advantage resort to such tactics when they are desperate.
A well-known blogger in Donegal has for years covered the Rangers story in great detail and has been smeared with false accusations in order to discredit him.
Smearing and deflection happens in the world of politics as well.
A recently-elected member of the Seanad Éireann in Ireland had to endure muck-raking about her political past, which she had long before disowned and expressed regret for in order to stop her from winning her seat.
Two examples (and there's so many more to choose from if you're inclined to do some research) of smearing and yet the encouraging thing is that the black propaganda failed - miserably.
The writer of the Daily Record piece cited above, Alex Mooney, has tried to employ the dark art of creating a false agenda on those seeking justice within the Scottish game before.
Another standalone passage follows....
Now where's that back of the bus?
Nonsense I know but sections of the (light blue) gallery all of this was playing to was gleefully lapped up.
After all, any straw that can be clutched as some sort of 'defence' for the shenanigans at Ibrox is to such folk as a comfort blanket is to a one-year-old.
That sort of defence can be classed as desperation.
What Rangers 1872-2012 did was cheating. The EBTs allowed them to purchase players that they would never have stood a chance of signing if they had to give the taxman what he was owed.
Therefore, the honours won by such deviousness should be rescinded.
Theological arguments over transubstantiation have got nothing to do with this - although Ignatius of Loyola (now resident of the Carfin area) may have been the one behind the "Strip the titles" graffiti on Glasgow's south side.
To imply otherwise is disingenuous and serves only to act as a cover-up for the sinner.
However, stand by for more of this nonsense and expect the 'bampot' taunts to increase as well.
After all, when the guilty and their acolytes start to fear for their ill-gotten gains, they do sink to a lower level.
