An elderly Christian couple that were intimidated by UK police last year over a so-called homophobic incident have been awarded £10,000 in a legal settlement. The couple were upset when their town council used public tax money to promote homosexuality in the district. As far as I can remember, they asked the council if the poster next to their church could be taken down, as it was offending those in their congregation who believe homosexuality is a sinful lifestyle. The town council reported the matter as a homophobic incident, and the police called round to the couple's house. The officers asked if the couple were the ones who complained about the gay literature, and they said they were. The officers then asked to come into the house and speak to them, where they quizzed them for several hours and accused them of being homophobes. The couple asked the police if they could put Christian literature next to the homosexual posters, and they were told under no circumstances, for this would offend people. The Christian Institute advised the couple to take legal action against the police for discrimination, and they won their case. The couple are planning to donate the compensation money to the Christian Institute to help fight other injustices. The police say they will review their policy.
This of course hasn't been the first case where the police have been taken to task over their homosexual activism. Last year the Gay Police Association of Britain was investigated over their advertisement, which insinuated that Christians were behind a majority of homophobic attacks. They had issued a poster entitled "In the name of the Father", with a Bible and a blood next to it.
It's very sad. You would think the police would be the ones to stand up for what is right, but more and more they have become the tool of politicians to enforce their unjust laws on this nation.
