Smearing Rocco

Don't let the truth get in the way of a smear, if the subject is a Catholic and the vehicle is the BBC:

(1)What Rocco Buttiglione said:

'I may think of homosexuality as a sin, but it has no effect unless I say it is a crime. The state has no right to stick its nose in this area...The rights of homosexuals should be defended on the same basis as the rights of all other European citizens. But I don't accept that homosexuals are a category deserving of special protection.'

(2) The BBC's take on it:

'MEPs objected to Mr Buttiglione's opposition to gay rights.'

A prize for the reader who can work out the twisted logic that gets from (1) to (2)

"The Love that won't shut up"

Can't claim that one. Nicked from Hilary Jane Margaret White.

It is no longer enough to merely tolerate homosexuals and/or homosexuality.

The liberal mindset espoused by the BBC demands that we positively approve of homosexuals and everything they do.
