Homophobia on Conservative Home
With the news yesterday tha tthe Roman Catholic Church are trying to blackmail the government in to having an "opt out" from having to follow equal opportunity laws, and the news today that the Church of England are backing them on this, it is worth noting the discussion currently ongoing on "Conservative Home".
Sorry about the small screenshot, but I'll print below what this person was writing :
"The first homosexual marriage lasted just for one year and most of their relationships are over in a matter of weeks.
Paedophilia and homosexuality go hand in hand and Blair has pandered to every minority group going.
Homosexuality is a recourse for animals when stressed.
Our forefathers were right in condemning it."
Yes, that really is the tone of the discussion on Conservative Home.
To be fair, there are a few Tories valiantly, and slightly in vain I fear, arguing that the Tories silence on this issue is wrong and that no organisation should be allowed an exeption from a law. I am pleased that Justin Hincliffe, one of my regular reads and writer of the hunterandshooter blog is one of those.
There are though, some senior Tory bloggers on Conservative home genuinely claiming that the church should be exempt. Do they not understand that those who are not asking for exemptions are actually not the problem. Organisations that treat people equally are happy with these knew laws. It is only those organisations that despise equality that will want an exemption.
