In response to Andrew Tettenborn: Anti-gay church finds some human rights are more equal than others, 9 Pontiac Dream wrote:
‘for an LGBT organisation to insist on hiring its meeting-place from an organisation which it knows disapproves of its aims would suggest to some people either a high degree of perverseness or alternatively a propensity for mischief-making.’
Which is exactly the aim they were intending. I have noticed that LGBT groups never try to organise a meeting at a mosque and I imagine that if they did and their group was rejected, neither the council or EHRC would consider pulling funding from said mosques. Maybe this is the social experiment the LGBT society should try. Rather than attempting to organise a meeting with those it knows are against their movement but who are easy game and unlikely to fight for too long, why not state that they want to organise rallies during Ramadan or in a mosque and push as much against Muslims as they do against Christianity. Then we’ll see whether various organisations who like to grandstand will do the same with Islam as they do with Christianity and, I think, we all know what the answer is to that.
