    Oh Blimey…. You can guarantee when one nutter starts the others will follow.

    More crap, more religion, more bore!

    1. Another rant from a crazy republican and evangelical.

      PN please stop posting what she says and just put up a pix with her mouth in the shape of her arse hole.. Symbolically blowing gas

      Someone should go to a cemetary and plant a fake tombstone with her name on it. “Linda Harvey aka KKKRAZY”

      BTW she showeed up across the street in Wash DC from the Human Rigthts coalition.

      She and her Kluxer friends were almost totally ignored

    Stop giving this b1tch the oxygen of publicity.

  3. Please please shall we try to have a one month moratorium on reporting on utterances from Linda Harvey, Bryan Fisher, Porno Pete and all the other crazies!! Please please just give us a couple of weeks of peace and quiet.

      PN has an international reach, and these US-based disgusting blobs of puss and filth do get reported on other related sites, and thus I think that’s where the impetus for reporting them comes from.

      However, I’d actually say that perhaps there should be a boycott of these people, in that all LGBT sites agree that, for the whole month of October they do not report any stories regarding these people. It would require co-operation between all sites, and for nobody to break the agreement, but I think we should try to do that.

    “Nondiscrimination laws actually discriminate and ‘create a climate of suspicion, spite and revenge’”

    No, it’s because of suspicious, spiteful, vengeful religious knob-jobs like Linda Harvey that we need non-discrimination laws.

    It’s like murder – we don’t really need a murder law because 99.9% of people don’t murder other people, we only have it because .1% do. And most people wouldn’t dream of discriminating, in this country, whilst a small percentage do. The very people who don’t want anti-discrimination laws are those that do actively want to discriminate. Polling shows that most people around the world don’t want people discriminated against, even if they don’t approve of, say, marriage equality, they don’t want people denied goods, homes, employment based on colour, ethnicity, sexual orientation. It’s one of those poll results which show that, at heart, most people disapprove of discrimination.

    In Greece we don’t have anti-discrimination laws and, let me tell you, it is worse. Everybody would be happy, of course, if this kind of laws was not necessary. But those who don’t want to imply discrimination don’t mind such laws, I suppose!

      I’m guessing that in the near future the ECHR will mandate non-discrimination laws Europe-wide based on sexual orientation … it’s only a matter of time now. As I said above, most people don’t care as they have no intention of discriminating here in the UK, same is true for the US, and many other countries, and I bet Greece is amongst those. Bet if there was a poll in Greece most people wouldn’t have any reason to discriminate.

      1. Sadly the ECHR can not mandate laws, only interpret and uphold an existing law -The European Convention. This itself has nothing to do with the European Union. As has been said before the convention was drafted in 1950 by the then newly formed Council of Europe, the convention entered into force on 3 September 1953. For changes to the Convention it would require agreement of all 47 member states of the Council of Europe.

        For such a Europe wide law, it would require action from the European Parliament and Commission and then agreement from all member states. this would then probably fall under the remit of the ECJ (European Court of Justice)

        This is all pretty confusing I know. One thing I would like to see is that Russia be removed from the Council of Europe.

        To that end I would ask everyone to contact the council asking for Russia’s suspension for breaches of human rights.

        If you wish to contact the Secretariat of the Committee of Ministers, send an email to cm@coe.int.

          Mark, I mean they could steer things in the right direction by making rulings on cases brought against member countries, i.e. the 47 in the Council of Europe (which include those in Europe). That doesn’t require the … practically impossible … agreement of the 47, just case law. There are also changes which happen from time to time, in the protected classes, by agreement of a majority, and that also includes within the Commonwealth, where sexual orientation can be included.

  6. Can someone please just slap this woman, hard, in the face with a scaffold board?

    Only then is she likely to start talking sense.

    1. I’d much prefer to see her walk the plank… and be done with her!

    No, religious bigots create that sort of climate, not anti discrimination laws, idiot!

  8. They only create a climate of suspicion, spite and revenge if you are suspicious, spiteful and vengeful, which very few LGBT people are. The Religious, on the other hand…

  9. The relentless promotion of these extremists does nothing to promote LGBT rights.

    These people have a tiny audience which is multiplied by the craven way in which sites like PN promotes them.

    I would argue that the constant promotion of these extremists, serves only to normalise hatespeech against our communities.

    The idea that promoting these bigots helps LGBT rights is a self-serving arguement which has no basis in reality.

    Please stop.

  10. *helpless mirth*
    Not a problem dear Linda… all those advances of women’s rights should be overturned…
    What’s that… you don’t like that bit of it?

  11. Everything this evil bitch says is just another gem of perverted logic.When you try to beat a black man because of his skin colour, you’re not a racist. The real racist is the one who is trying to stop you…. yeah right, Linda Evillinda !

  12. Just another rant from a crazy republican and evangelical.

    PN please stop posting what she says and just put up a pix with her mouth in the shape of her arse hole.. Symbolically blowing gas

    Someone should go to a cemetary and plant a fake tombstone with her name on it. “Linda Harvey aka KKKRAZY”

  13. I’m offended by her existence in most cases but in this instance the suggestion that discriminators would then be discriminated against is probably true.
    Regardless off where they choose to align themselves along the equality fence from on it to far back on the opposite side of the LGBT movement things could get very awkward with the slip of a tongue or a non-supportive uttering. I am gay and support the cause to it’s fullest however, it feels like things will continue to be uncomfortable for quite some time yet.
    Anyway the movement is strong in the U.S. we need to support our brothers and sisters in Russia who are suffering in ways we cannot imagine.
