From Warren Ellis' Weblog: House Of Lords To Homophobes & Intolerant Christians: Shut The Fuck Up

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]navytron89)

It’s a rare day when my country’s system of government fails to fuck up when given the opportunity, and so worth recording:

New rules outlawing businesses from discriminating against homosexuals have been upheld in the House of Lords.

A challenge led by Lord Morrow of the Democratic Unionist Party failed by a majority of three to one. He had argued that the rules forced people to choose between obedience to God and obedience to the state…

Labour’s Lord Smith said: “I am somewhat puzzled by the arguments that have been advanced. It seems to me, in my simplistic way, that what they (the opponents of the regulations) are arguing for is quite simply the right to discriminate and the right to harass. And those arguments are being made in the name of Christianity.”

Personally it sounds like Lord Morrow is a grade "A" asshat and is trying to appease his religious right  constitutants. But I noticed that it was only the radical religious idiots outside Parliment making noise about "Gay Rights over Religious Rights was unfair".  

Guess what you cheeky bastards;  its time for your come upance and its nice to see that Europe (UK) is leading the charge against the fundies that have invaded Brittian and mucking about into politics. I guess the Christians there are final taking notice that fundies are not friends of Jesus as they make people believe. 

I like the fact that "Conservative" Lord Tebbit basically spelled it out on why the Gay Rights were not going to be repealed, based on bigotry (he made it  an underhanded face-slap to the religious bigots out there in a not exactly in your face way).

Hopefully the High Court in Northern Ireland also cans the judical review as the Christian Institute that brought the challenge to the law as they have ties with Focus on Family (Dobson's group of Christian wackos) and Family Research Council (Tony Perkins' group of wackos that keep visiting W. in the White House and trying to promote Christian Values).
