  1. Well done, Peter !

    Hope their tax concessions are cut off as well.

  2. I hope you rip them to shreds. Go tiger. Eat ‘em alive.

  3. I’m amazed that religious groups get funded by the lottery. When they arent promoting bigotry they’re preaching fairy tales.Hows that a good cause ?

  4. “The National Lottery responded to the accusations, in a statement which sets out that some funding is given out to religious groups as they have access to “hardest to reach” members of the community, and that sometimes background checks are lighter, in order to make the funding more “accessible”.”

    So I wonder what happens when some of those already marginalised “hardest to reach” people happen to be LGBT? Perhaps this revelation also raises another issue as to whether or not there are religious organisations who are abusing the rights of LGBT people within these groups and taking advantage of their disempowerment within society as a whole to manipulate and exploit them?

    Yet again Peter Tatchell is guilty of grotesque bigotry and intolerance.

    He is a despicable human being.

      I think the last part of your sentence describes you. Why are you commenting on here? Stupid cow.

      Your last sentence describes you perfectly dear. Stupid cow.
