For, mad as this may seem, schoolchildren are to be bombarded with homosexual references in maths, geography and science lessons as part of a Government-backed drive to promote the gay agenda.
And it’s all part of the ruthless campaign by the gay rights lobby to destroy the very concept of normal sexual behaviour.
is followed up by the author angrily spitting onto the floor
yeah, click this
than to be Melanie Philips
I thought that in this country alone it was BBC>Guardian>Mail>Sun – and that doesn’t include Fox, Huffington Post etc etc.
behind the New York Times
1. The Daily Mail has no beliefs: it has a nihilist agenda.
2. It's all staffed by liberal twentysomethings having a laugh.
3. Therefore, it's basically Vice magazine, but with more tits.
Hans-Christian Raabe is fair enough, though.
His papers and research have been pretty heavily criticised under peer-review for not having the evidence to back up their claims and for making massive simplifications. I don’t quite know how he got appointed to the Advisory Body, but he has a reputation for spouting beliefs as facts and then trying to find the evidence to suit his arguments.
I don't know any more about him, but logically the arguments in tha article about him stack up.
im not even going to try and copy and paste but her example of imagine if the shoe was on the other foot makes no sense.
how is gay people on a council objecting to anti-gay member and thereby stepping in any way the same as anti-gay member objecting to gay member and stepping down. the clue is in the 'anti' bit.
Maybe she has a point (altho what marckee says makes me think she hasn't), but if she has she didn't make it very well.
That bit's shit.
Penalising religious people for speaking and acting in accordance with their beliefs is neither liberal nor tolerant. It is behaviour more commonly associated with totalitarian dictatorships.
It can fuck off then.
it give the impression that all religious beliefs are being denied, when in fact it's only the one's that intrude on other people's lives in a direct and unnecessary fashion. religion at it's core has two choices: it can be welcoming and supportive of people or it can be judgemental and discriminatory. to reject the latter isn't to deny the beliefs of the organisation as a whole, but simply to prevent them from contradicting another persons right to an identity.
weirdly you don't find the idea of tolerance or many 'love thy neighbour' arguments in the writings of melanie philips or the briefing notes of hans christian raabe...
which appears to be part of his church community. through this body he's released memoranda intended as briefing documents for mp's that include claims that there is "an overlap between the gay movement and the movement to make paedophilia acceptable" and claiming that homosexuals are more likely to be paedophiles despite having no evidence whatsoever.
would you want to serve on a voluntary panel with a scientist of that calibre?
Oh come on enough is enough. I don't care what anyones sexual bias is but why should we have to have gay rights shoved down our throats all the time, if your gay your gay so what methinks that some gays are ashamed of what they are otherwise why would they want to have their sexual bias constantly shoved under peoples noses and why are they alway sceaming about discrimination get over it discrimination is everywhere in all walks of life. Just get on and live and stop finding obscure things to whine about.
That was by Beth in the comments section. What happened to c+p? c+p was the lifeblood of this site in my day.
is this a quotation, parody or just someone having a breakdown?
it becomes very hard to tell on broken DiS.
ah, now i see. soz orsonwellesrabbit.
do single quotes work? there should be some here, around the word hello: 'hello'
ah, they do. happy days.
Raabe seems to be a cunt too. Just reading about the Sky Sports thing now. It's like I can't stop looking at the Mail's site once I start.
(although correct about that cunt Raabe. CUNT).
Apparently this is the parody, although it's hard to discern one from the other-
this is obviously all bullshit but i remember being pretty surprised and feeling a little patronised when taking GCSEs 5/6 years ago that they were so many questions that pointed you to giving a politically specific answer. now i can see the benefits but yeh, it was a bit odd at the time.
But since that^ is something that does exist and surely must piss off Melanie Philips (she's not an environment fan, i guess) why bother write all this about something which doesn't exist, who knows...?
when stories so ridicu as this one go viral on Social Media
Teachers are there to provide a good basic standard of education and demand certain standards of behaviour from their pupils. They are not there to pass on the latest political ideologies...
they really don't on the dailymail site about 70% of the time, certainly when talking about race or immigration the web commentators seem a lot further right than the editorial.
WHEN WILL IT END????//
• Reporting on celebrity twitter updates/4chan memes a couple of days after anyone on the internet cares any more.
• Shamelessly and overtly trolling commenters on their site.
• Any story in which a product brand name can be included in the headline.
THAT'S LITERALLY ALL
they've always been like this.
but yeah replace point number one with getting in a tiff about radio/cinema when they first came out, before being broken and dutifully reporting on them anyway
' I can believe it. My niece's state schooling was ruined by political correctness ? for example, at age 7, being asked to do a project on the life and music of Bob Marley (who'd been dead for 20 years) when she and most of her peers liked the Spice Girls'
Same at my school of course - I had to do a history project on Martin Luther King, when in fact I was a huge fan of Take That. WHAT WERE THESE EDUCATIONALISTS THINKING.
one imagines three men bursting into a classroom dressed in pink robes
I hope Conservative MP Richard Drax and Mail columnist Melanie Phillips et al are able to sleep well at night.
Actually I don't. I hope the image of Jonathan Reynolds lying on a train track haunts their every waking second until the day they die.
In R.E., we had to do a project about the '98 world cup for some reason, I think it was about showing how lovely and diverse the world is. I had to do a presentation about Jamaica. When I said that their nickname was "the reggae boys", the teacher misheard it as "the gay boys" and kicked me out of the class. I protested but she wasn't having any of it. The world's greatest injustice.
That Johann Hari article is really upsetting.
