A 'Lobotomy' is a neurosurgical procedure, a form of psychosurgery. It consists of cutting the connections to and from the prefrontal cortex, the anterior part of the frontal lobes of the brain. I think lobotomies are cruel, barbaric and wrong.
Jesus Christ said in 'The Bible' in Matthew 10:22 "And you will be hated by all men for My name's sake":
But please do not be disturbed instead be comforted and remember that no other power is more powerful than our creator The Father Lord God Almighty and his son Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour. With God and Jesus, you are strong even when you are weak. When you are hurt, persecuted, or feel sad, and all alone, it is then that he God is carrying you! But don't forget that whenever you feel your own strength has run out, The Lord's strength always takes over! I put my faith in trust in God and Jesus alone and not in humans.
'The Bible' says in Ephesians 5:11 "Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them".
It worried me a great deal when Morrissey said at one of his concerts that he didn't care if he went to hell.
I'm well aware that the ram's horns/goat's horns on Francesca's head represents 'Satan'. Fran may not be aware of this and might be just wearing the mask as a 'cool' or 'trendy' fashion statement. But I'm aware of the deeper meaning and symbolism.
I also think swearing, smoking, drinking alcohol to excess, using recreational drugs, gambling and hedonism is wrong. And being a 'Swinger' is a sin and committing adultery is a sin. I also think trying to threaten, bully, intimidate people is wrong. And being rude and dishonest is wrong.
'The Bible' says in Luke 6:37 “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.”
Being a Christian is about forgiveness and repentance. I repent for my sins in prayer.

I'm interested to know what Andy Rourke and his crew did to the New York Yankees Nick Swisher?
This is in general discussion about where Andy Rourke is living.
Please see this video below about Eternal Life in Heaven, The Gospel of Jesus Christ aka 'The Good News':
What is Conviction of Sin?
(John 16:8) What is Conviction of Sin? Few Christians can define this vital theological term and even less can discern when it is present.
Conviction of Sin is NOT:
The ordinary smiting of a guilty conscience.
A mere head knowledge of what The Bible says about sin.
A shallow acknowledgement that ‘‘I’ve made a lot of mistakes.’’
A mere fear of going to hell.
Even an admission of sin. As Pharoah, Saul, Balaam and Judas all said “I have sinned.” and went to hell.
True Holy Spirit Conviction of Sin is a proper sense of the dreadfulness of one’s sinnership and sin against God (Psa 51:4, Lu 15:18). It is when a person inwardly feels and owns the wickedness and rebellion of their depraved heart.
A stranger to 'conviction' (of sin) is a stranger to 'repentance'; and a stranger to 'repentance' must be a stranger to 'salvation' for, “Unless you repent you will all perish” (Lu 13:5).
Which raises another term that is little understood throughout evangelicalism, namely 'Repentance'.
Repentance was John the Baptist and the Lord Jesus’ first spoken word in public ministry (Matt 3:1, Mk 1:15). Paul defined the very gospel itself as ‘Repentance and Faith’, and summarized the message he had preached throughout his entire life as simply, “Repent and turn to God ” (Acts 20:21, 26:20). But theological terms need to be defined carefully.
What is Repentance?
Repentance is NOT:
Penance or restitution.
Mere tears and trembling. (Acts 24:25)
Fear of judgment. ‘‘Multitudes desire to be saved from hell (the natural instinct of self-preservation) who are quite unwilling to be saved from sin. There are tens of thousands who have been deluded into thinking that they have ‘accepted Christ as their Saviour’ whose lives plainly show that they have rejected Him as their Lord. For a sinner to obtain the pardon of God, he must forsake his way.’’
Remorse. We must all learn to distinguish between the sorrow that comes from being caught & the sorrow that comes from a deep, inward hatred of sin and longing for the glory of God that is the distinguishing feature of the regenerate person.
Confession or admission of sin. Salvation is never promised to those who confess their sin. (1 John 1:9 is a promise to Christians).
Reformation or turning over a new leaf.
True Biblical 'Repentance', which always accompanies genuine believing faith, may be defined as follows:
A complete change of one’s sinful heart, involving a turning from sin to God, which results in a change of life. Clearly no one can turn to a righteous God without first turning from their own unrighteousness. When God reveals to the sinner a real consciousness of what he is in God’s sight, and he personally recognizes his wickedness and inner corruption, he is willing to repudiate sin from his heart.
Repentance is NOT someone saying, ‘‘I felt guilty about my adultery so I stopped it years ago.”
It is rather, “I now realise I am a lost, undone and guilty sinner through and through, deserving nothing but the eternal wrath of God in hell.’’ It is a permanent change of outlook, ambition and heart (mind, will and affection) wrought by the Holy Spirit of God.

Andy Rourke & Rocco Recycle jamming a Rocco Recycle song in New York, 2012:
Andy Rourke's new band called 'Jetlag' cover the song "Vanishing Point" by New Order in New York, 2012:
Jamming with Andy Rourke in Phoenix, Arizona 2010. The tune is "Barbarism Begins at Home" by The Smiths:
The band 'Team Facelift' in Studio w/ the famous Junior Sanchez & Andy Rourke in New York? in 2010?:
I always thought it was strange that Andy Rourke likes the band 'Nirvana' and Kurt Cobain better than 'The Smiths' and Morrissey.
Maybe Andy Rourke should join the 'Foo Fighters'? Or maybe 'Oasis'?
Nirvana performing "The Man Who Sold The World" (a David Bowie cover). 1994. Geffen Records:
Nirvana - "Come As You Are" (music video):

He would only have got a visa if he had evidence of work / payment. Therefore he enters the USA, gets paid, pays taxes etc.
His past in the UK has no baring on this at all.
I'm more concerned about whether he supports the New York Yankees or the New York Mets
Do you know if Andy Rourke is now paying taxes in the USA rather than in the UK?
Anyway I think it's so cool Andy Rourke is living it up in New York with his lovely new girlfriend! Stop worrying about Andy Rourke he is doing very well for himself these days and there is no need to feel sorry for him anymore. I know a lot of people feel sorry for Andy Rourke, as he seems hard done by, but there is no reason for it really.
It’s literally 'third time’s the charm' for visiting DJ Andy Rourke when he spins once again at DJ Nocturna’s regular 1980s Pop Muzik dance event Saturday night at "Bar 35" in Honolulu, Hawaii. After two visits in 2006 and 2007, the 48-year-old Andy Rourke returns this year as a newlywed, after marrying his girlfriend Francesca Mor on June 22nd 2012. So, as he puts it, the Hawaii visit will be a “Working honeymoon.”
This event took place on Saturday June 30th 2012.
So is Ms. Francesca Mor now known as Mrs. Francesca Rourke?
In this video Andy Rourke is playing some tunes: The Sugarhill Gang's - "Rapper's Delight", "Barbarism Begins at Home" by The Smiths & Joy Division's "She's Lost Control" on a special 'U Bass' guitar on July 4th, 2012 in Honolulu, Hawaii:
