  1. Well said, etc. And she’s are still a useless, talent-free, nobody-knows-why-she’s-a-peer waste of time.

  2. These homophobic idiots are hardly vigilantes. That’s like saying the UKIP idiot that was against gay adoption and likened it to child abuse isn’t a vigilante he’s an idiot and doesn’t represent the opinion of the majority.

    I’ve experienced more homophobia from white non Christians than any other group. Not helpful to set one community as all believing the same. The Muslim council of Britain deplored the hatred so really its a bit of sensational reporting

      The Muslim Council of Britain has a long history of homophobia, and it is their attitude and stance which has contributed to this, so we’ll have no apology from them — get them to change their ways, because they’re still very homophobic.

      And why is it always centred around that mosque in the East End, and that’s also where the Islamic terrorists came from, so it’s time to close it down — or at the very least completely change the management and ethos of it. Enough is enough. What do we have to do – organise our own Pink Panthers to patrol the streets?

        Oh, and didn’t that mosque have known homophobic speakers organised to give speeches there just a few months ago? I wonder if there is a correlation. Actions, not words. No more homophobia from the mosques, no more hate speeches, no more hate speakers, no more preaching hate.

        They do this every time – they say they’re not homophobic, then you find out they’re organising someone to give a hate speech. They’ve done it so often. I would love to believe they’ve changed, but they’ve lied so many times, saying they had changed.

    She’s very anti-gay, I condemn her, because it’s people like her who cause these problems in the first place. Young people who are easily influenced see her homophobia and copy it.

    She’s not part of the solution, she’s a big part of the problem.

      And yet she still appears to be supporting gay marriage. I accept its not the most resounding no-ifs-no-buts-support but it nevertheless appears to be support

        The woman is a religious hypocrite of the highest order.

  4. The ones that spouted the abuse were probably just acting all macho in front of others.

  5. It’s people like Warsi who provide bullets for the bigots to fire.

    Exactly what are those ‘safeguards’ she says she will be speaking to Maria Miller about regarding equal marriage? Isn’t the quadruple lock for the CoE not enough? The CoE already bans marriage for hetero divorced couples and nobody has tried to sue it and faith based schools won’t be forced to change their beliefs, or teach something contrary to their beliefs, so what could she possibly want now? This needs more clarification.

  7. The only thing Sayeeda Warsi (Baroness my arse) believes in is her own career advancement.

  8. “Providing I can get the legal safeguards, which I have been speaking to Maria Miller about, and providing the faith communities are on the right page, and all of that, I will be voting for gay marriage.” – or, in plain English, “No.”

      Exactly what I thought! Arrgh…she makes my blood boil!

  9. Very suspicious. The only people who, despite the quadruple lock, are saying they are worried about religious safeguards are homophobes…. like her.

  10. Swivel, dear, swivel

  11. To her credit, Baroness Warsi has also been outspoken against the epidemic of attacks and physical and sexual abuse by Moslem paedophiles against white children.

    However, we need to see the Moslem community itself denouncing, rooting out and disowning the radical elements in their midst who are now claiming ghetto areas as their own and who are terrorising indigenous people who do not conform the written word of Allah’s scriptures.

    Such an act would be the first move in breaking the self-inflicted apartheid that Moslems in general have chosen to live under as it would state their intention to live by British rules and to integrate fully into our culture when in public view while practising their own customs behind their closed doors.

    Somehow I suspect that we will not be hearing from anything from the Moslem to this effect any time soon.

    1. …Somehow I suspect that we will not be hearing from anything from the Moslem ghettos to this effect any time soon.

  12. “Welcoming recent commendation of the incidents by the Muslim Council of Britain”

    Surely the article means “condemnation”, unless Peter Tatchell welcomed the MCB commending homophobic violence???

    “Most Muslim people do not seek to impose their personal beliefs on others.”

    Yeah right.
    Tell that to Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and high proportions of the world that are slowly being taken over by hard line Islamic extremism.

    This is just the beginning.

  14. What’s her problem? I thought she was pro-Islam? It’s a homophobic religion, like most others. Weren’t they just being good muslims?

  15. Fabrizio Pagan 1 Feb 2013, 2:54pm

    Tatchell seems to have a real problem learning from his past mistakes, after being betrayed by the Muslim Council of Britain and even beaten up on allegedly 3 occasions
    Warsi, on the other hand, must be one of the most hypocritical deceitful bigot to have ever occupied the chair of minister of state for the foreign office. She now claims homophobia should be condemned, yet she infamously handed out leaflets condemning the scrapping of Caluse 28 produced for her 2005 Westminster bid in Dewsbury – which she has never apologised for.

    Headline “Sayeeda Warsi condemns anti-gay east London ‘Muslim vigilante’ groups”

    Now I don’t know where the journo who wrote this studied English, but no where in this report is the slightest hint of condemnation, saying that the same laws and police force for everyone is anything but a condemnation.

    When asked if there’s a specific problem in the Muslim community she ducks the question implying that all religions are as bad.

    There’s no condemnation here, and there,s no acceptance of the teachings in Islam which many many follow & believe in.

    When it comes to gay marriage again she’s evasive saying that she wants several safeguards, and what exactly does “providing the faith communities are on the right page” actually mean, because I see nothing changing in the near future.

    No wonder people accuse the BBC of ‘Massive left wing bias’ * when it’s so weak on pressing certain interviewees.
