We've been talking a lot about what feminism has done to men but not what the SJW movement has done for/to the gay community.

Here's something I'm both for and against, a man in London being expelled for holding anti-gay views based on religion. Mind you, he's a Christian.

Being that we all, to some degree or another, benefit from not hearing anti-gay speech (is it hate speech?), is expelling him the right course of action?

Thoughts?

Here's the article.

I read the article, of course what we are missing are the exact things he posted on social media.

While I agree that everyone has their right to hold their religious views, we actually move in a 'laic' society.  As long as our religion doesn't interfere with others' lives or harms others everything is fine.  But when it does, we have a problem.

Plus, he wanted to be a social worker...the judge words are spot on: “Public religious speech has to be looked at in a regulated context from the perspective of a public readership. Social workers have considerable power over the lives of vulnerable service users and trust is a precious professional commodity.”

Would you trust a social worker who downright shows bias?

I hate social workers.   They don't give a shit about the people they are supposed to help.   They only care about their power over people. 

+++++

I have mixed feelings about this.   

While I support free speech, as defined by the US Supreme Court, I want equality in that concept, which is something that Europe doesn't have.   If I can't slag you off, then equality says you can't slag me off.

You can freely deny the Armenian genocide committed by The Young Turks (recognize the name?)  but disagree with the official narrative of the WW2 holocaust and your ass is going to prison in most of Europe.    You don't have to deny that the WW2 holocaust happened, just disagree with the official "facts". 

In Scandinavia, you will go to prison for being critical of islam and muslims.     Slag off christians and nothing happens.   Hypocrisy, is the word of the day.   

In Europe, causing offense is a crime.
