The Church of England newspaper is under fire for publishing an article attacking gay campaigners as “The Gaystapo.”
The article was by Alan Craig, the leader of the tiny Christian Peoples Alliance party and a former London councillor.
The Editor of the newspaper, Colin Blakely, has defended the article saying the author has “pertinent views.” But Blakely said he was away when it was published and if he was editing it, he would have suggested Craig “tone it down.”
Having forcibly — and understandably– rectified the Versailles-type injustices and humiliations foisted on the homosexual community, the UK’s victorious Gaystapo are now on a roll. Their gay-rights stormtroopers take no prisoners as they annex our wider culture, and hotel owners, registrars, magistrates, doctors, counsellors, and foster parents… find themselves crushed under the pink jackboot.
Thanks especially to the green light from a permissive New Labour government, the gay Wehrmacht is on its long march through the institutions and has already occupied the Sudetenland social uplands of the Home Office, the educational establishment, the politically-correct police. Following a plethora of equalities legislation, homosexuals are now protected and privileged by sexual orientation regulations and have achieved legal equality by way of civil partnerships. But it’s only 1938 and Nazi expansionist ambitions are far from sated.
The ‘hotel owners’ he is referring to are a couple running a bed and breakfast in Cornwall, England, who refuse to provide rooms to gay or unmarried couples, breaching British equality legislation for providers of a commercial service. Their case has become a cause célèbre on the religious right and is quoted around the world. It is currently being appealed.
‘Gaystapo’ is a phrase invented on the religious right in America and commonly used around the globe. Stephen Colbert made light of it in a 2009 piece. The Pink Swastika, a Holocaust revisionist book by Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams which alleges that homosexuality found in the Nazi Party contributed to the extreme militarism of Nazi Germany, is widely read on the religious right.
“When lawlessness is abroad in the land, the same thing will happen here that happened in Nazi Germany,” Pat Robertson once warned viewers of his 700 Club. “Many of those people involved with Adolf Hitler were satanists. Many of them were homosexuals. The two seem to go together.”
Although the newspaper is independent of the institution bearing the same name, it carries advertisements for Church of England jobs and is read by its clergy.
Following the publication, The University of Sheffield requested that an advertisement of theirs be removed from the Church of England Newspaper’s website.
