Homosexual activist: 'Imposed morality' a bad ideaCharlie Butts - OneNewsNow - 3/11/2011 3:50:00 AMChristians in Britain opposed to the homosexual lifestyle are receiving support from an unexpected source.
Homosexual activist David Starkey, who is an atheist, participated in a debate on BBC about bed-and-breakfast owners hauled into court when they refused homosexual couples based on their religious beliefs. "The way to do that is not to bound them, not to fine them," he stated. "It is for them simply to put up what seems to me to be a quite proper notice in a small privately run hotel which says, 'We are Christians and this is what we believe.'"
The activist says forcing someone to accept the homosexual lifestyle against their religious beliefs is "a new tyranny."
"Being nice and sweet about gays isn't wholly a good thing -- it really isn't," Starkey stated. "We live in a world of intense difficulty and plurality, and just having a hang-me-down, reach-me-down imposed morality is a very bad idea."
Several other panelists in the debate agreed that application of the non-discrimination laws against Christians had gone too far.
Recently a British couple was told by a court they could not provide foster care because they refused to teach the foster children that homosexuality is on a par with heterosexuality. (See earlier story)
