Lisa’s Blog: You’ve got mail. ‘Who’s hating now?’

‘What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.’ Jesus (NIV, c. 1984)

Dear Readers,

AM’s sponsorship of the bus campaign (‘Not gay! Ex-gay, post-gay and proud. Get over it’) has elicited a flurry of email. We understand that these are highly charged issues. However, as recent events demonstrate, the politically-correct orthodoxy is such that we are not allowed even to present another point of view for debate. Not only are we legally censored, but the social opprobrium heaped on campaigns such as ours means that most duck the issues; it is too costly. But by so doing they fail to understand how much the status quo has shifted, nor how the alleged haters of the past have been replaced by ‘the new haters’. In order to ensure that readers understand the current status quo, ‘critical’ email will be posted for them to read for themselves. It is vital they ‘come out’ or be permanently silenced.

See for example, Mark Smout’s email: Subject: Just seen your new bus ads and it appears you’re a bunch of massive expletive deleted. I know some people will be hoping you enjoy slow painful deaths while god watches, lazily expletive deleted over the desperate situation you find yourselves in. (Replace god with the name of any other mythical character as you see fit).

The purpose of this email is to cause you as much offence as your advert has caused me. If you want someone to cure take a long hard look at yourself, you’re clearly expletive deleted sick in the head!

Sent from my iPad, whilst gently fingering my expletive deleted.
