Gays should stop burning fire on free speech

Published:Monday | May 7, 2012 | 12:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Thanks to Ian Boyne for bringing, in his column 'Gays' threat to free speech' (Sunday, May 6, 2012), the worrying trend on to the public agenda.

I have been sharing similar thoughts in discussions with friends and associates for a while now.

The promoters of the gay agenda are moving purposefully and strategically to ensure that free-speech rights do not include any form of criticism of their homosexual lifestyle. Homophobia has been coined as a derogatory term to describe people with a position opposed to homosexuality as an acceptable alternative lifestyle.

Like the rats in The Pied Piper, the liberals in legislative halls of powerful and influential nations are hypnotically following their lead, and by one fatal law after another they are making criminals of those who dare to openly express an opposing point of view.

These are the same people who fashionably pontificate about every conceivable rights abuse in every minute corner of the globe.

Where will it end? I shudder to think. To take it to what may seem an absurd conclusion might appear alarmist, but could indeed prove 'truth to be stranger than fiction'. The Dark Ages may once again be on the horizon.

Freedom to publish even this article may be under threat.

Please, even occasionally, keep the fire burning on this topic.
