    I must say that I think that handing out leaflets at a Gay Pride event should be a voluntary task – and if people don`t want to do it they shouldn’t have to and we wouldn’t want them there under duress.

  2. HAHA what a joke. “diversity training” in other words teaching homophobic cavemen fire fighters how to hide their true homophobic feelings!These bastards should have been sacked IMO.

  3. Why is receiving training described as ‘punishment’? Is that the Fire Brigade’s view or just your journalist’s?

    If everyone who was gay left the Catholic Church the administration would fall apart. In fact, in the real world thousands of unseen gays work every day – some are neighbours, some are relatives – they’ve always been there since the year dot. Mario Conti should ‘get real’. Bloody twit.

  5. The Catholic Church continues to disgrace itself. Perhaps the idiot Archbishop might see things differently if these very same fireman refused to educate members of his congregation about fire safety because they were Catholic.
