With regards to a comment left on my open letter to the Pope:
"That is not my place, but I would suggest that homosexuals are human beings and too often they are patronised, or treated as evangelism fodder. A persons sexual identity, their sexuality, is a fragile thing that affects the whole person. We are called to love our neighbour as we love ourselves and perhaps if more people imagined what a world where heterosexuals were treated the way a lot of homosexuals were treated, there would be more thoughtfulness and understanding"
Plus my response to comments left on where Labour have been succesful and where they have failed:
"Man in a Shed, isn't the church's idea on civil partnerships discriminatory? What makes a gay couple involved in one sexual activity different from another gay couple? That is a slippery slope and disrespectful to others, no matter what we think of them! The minimum wage covers all, that includes those whose jobs are not under threat or immediate threat, plus it's the principle that counts. Where Labour has made some success is to try and help the vulnerable in society, are you suggesting that the Conservatives make cuts in public services so as to help cut the deficit?
"Anon. I support civil partnerships for gay couples because for one thing they legally protect both individuals should the relationship sour, or should one partner be unfairly and badly treated by family and friends when the other dies"
