Oh, and the very same people who aggressively promote the homosexual agenda, are the very same people heavily involved in the multicultural project, of which they take great pride in, and are directly responsible for having introduced into the country an extremely homophobic Muslim community. The mind of the Left is a twisted dangling thing.
NOTE: Whatever your views are on homosexuality, one thing is for sure, the freedom to criticize and hold opposing views, without fear of being victimized for them, is a fundamental right, which includes holding views both favorable and unfavorable of homosexuality.

Opinion: Adrian Smith had posted a link to an article about plans for civil partnership ceremonies in churches with his own comment: ‘An equality too far’
A Christian housing manager had his salary slashed after allegedly being ‘entrapped’ by a lesbian colleague into criticising gay marriage on his private Facebook page, a court heard yesterday.
Adrian Smith, 55, had posted a link to an article about plans for civil partnership ceremonies in churches with his own comment: ‘An equality too far.’
After a lesbian colleague asked if that meant he didn’t approve, he posted that he could not understand ‘why people who have no faith and don’t believe in Christ would want to get hitched in church’.
Another colleague complained that the comment was offensive, despite having not seen the post, and Mr Smith was disciplined and had his post downgraded and his salary cut by £14,000.
Yesterday the married father-of-one launched a court battle to overturn the decision and win back lost earnings. They stand at nearly £4,000 for the past 18 months, according to his legal team.
However, his future lost earnings which he could seek to recoup should he fail to overturn his demotion are likely to be at least £60,000.
It is the latest in a series of claims by Christians that they have been discriminated against for expressing their beliefs at work.
