Cast your minds back if you will to the vile Christian couple who refused a legally civil partnershipped gay couple a bed because they didn’t want to call down the wrath of our Lord upon their chintzes and back-copies of The Lady magazine.
Remember it all went to court and the court decided that, due to laws forbidding this sort of thing, they couldn’t do that and would have to pay compensation to the gays. Same as they would have had to if they’d turned blacks away. Or Jews. Or Irish. Or black Jewish Irish gays.
But it’s their home, cried the Daily Cunt. Why should they have to have gays littering up their home? It’s PC gone mad (they don’t have to actually type this at the Daily Cunt, they have a shift key: it’s SHIFT + PC), the country’s gone to the dogs (or SHIFT + DOGS), everyone’s a communist and we’re all going to die and any woman who has sex not for procreation should be stoned to death for being a scrounger off the state and an affront to decent people (SHIFT + USUAL OLD SHIT).
So, because the judge took the Chrizzo’s religious beliefs into account, the Equalities Commission want to take the case further, because they need to test these things. Cue the Daily Cunt headline equating gays with greed and the avalanche of hatred that you would expect from those with a Christian agenda (see what we’ve done there, Melanie Phillips?)
‘Gay pair who won cash from Christian B&B couple launch fight for more – and you are funding them’, is how the DC puts it. No exclamation mark, mind you!
The one voice of sense on the message board (and let’s face it, those moderators over at The DC don’t let many of those through…) has, so far!, over 2000 ‘thumbs down’… So there you have it: The Daily Mail is a vile homophobic rag read by vile homophobes… But then you already knew that. The Japanese tsunami’s probably the gays’ fault too.
As you were.
