Controversial, moi?

I too think the sheer amount of programming is a bit OTT but I must confess that a programme the other evening presented by someone I cannot abide, Peter Tatchell, was compelling listening.

One part of it told the story of a young soldier, around 18 or so I think, unsure of his sexuality who got drunk and had a sexual experience with another soldier which, unbeknown to them, had been seen and was subsequently reported. To cut a long story short he was thrown out of the army, served military jail time, was abused in jail and the rest of his life has been blighted by the whole sorry saga.

He was quietly spoken and came across as a decent individual. I was appalled and saddened at what had happened and how it had followed him throughout his life.

The Trust have developed an exhibition about Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer, the hallís last owner, having found out he was gay. Rumour has it that current members of the family are unimpressed with the Trust's position and suggest Mr Ketton_Cremer would not be happy with such an exhibition.
All the major charities are also now controlled by Common Purpose.
This is why social justice, multiculturalism, homosexuality, mass immigration, political correctness and all the other cornerstones of Cultural Marxism now take precedence.

This applies also to the police, NHS, civil servants, education etc.

Out here we know the truth. That is why right-wing populism is succeeding.
You missed out antihistamine and antidisestablish.....it's a long wurd, but you know the one I mean..

But, thank you anyway, Agent Mulder...

As for Common Purpose, with apologies to C.C.R here...."There's a black moon on the rise "...21st August to be exact....but the influence is already beginning to show.

Many of you must be delighted however, to find JB offers a little oasis away from all those societal developments, the ones, in this case, which have been instrumental in causing unwarranted anguish and personal trauma to anybody whose sexual orientation just happens to be for a member of the same sex.

And of course, lets not forget that we can all select the genetics that induce our sexual orientation before birth.....can't we now ?

We can't, as we know, but this point isn't likely to be even remotely considered when the opportunity to vilify anybody who isn't a white, heterosexual male, or female, presents itself.

All I know is that one of my oldest friends, who happens to be homosexual, is an avid Radio 4 listener and he is bored to death with the incessant LGBT programming.

I just wish that they wouldn't have kept running the radio trailers with a voice telling us that it's been sixty years since homosexuality was de-criminalised when it was homosexual acts that were de- or partially de-criminalised. As far as I'm aware it's never been illegal to be homosexual in this country.

Homosexual acts remained illegal in the British military for a long time after they became OK for civilians, has it ever changed or are they still illegal? Used to be 6 months in Colchester and a dishonourable discharge in the 1960s but I believe that was softened to simply a discharge due to, "Services no longer required".

In the name of equality, are the BBC going to have an equivalent campaign for the celebration of heterosexuals? Probably not.

I've been watching the coverage on the same sex marriage issue in Australia, and this seems to be another example "how dare you disagree with what we want". At the last election the eventual winners promised to put the issue to the vote of the people, hold a plebiscite, and abide by the decision. Of course this would appear to be a sensible solution, but there is the potential that the voice of the people would say "No", so every name calling and political trick in the book has been used to try and get it down to a vote in the parliament. Parliament is a smaller number of people, easier to manipulate / cajole etc so there is a better chance (for the proponents) to get it passed. After all, what politician wants his future career to be driven by being constantly reminded that he or she voted against same sex marriage every time they say or do something in parliament. It's effectively blackmail.

And I guess this is the crux of the matter in my opinion. I really have no thoughts or concerns about what other human beings get up to, but I object to being made to feel guilty for not loving every minute of it.

As for the BBC, well there is the off switch, but be careful in case there is an exam further down the line.....

Having now decided on a preliminary postal vote to be conducted at a cost of AUD $122M (and that concept is now being challenged in the High Court, as was always going to be the case) my objection to any of this process is that we, the voters, will be lobbed with a two choice selection; do you approve / agree or do you not approve / agree.
Given those two choices there is a better than fair chance that the outcome will be the protagonists from the LGBTXYZ group claiming "a clear majority of Australians APPROVE of homosexual marriage." And I seriously doubt that that accurately reflects Australian attitudes.
When, in fact, what is really needed is a third choice along the lines of "I don't give a toss but if you really want to get married, go right ahead. Just stop pretending that you are anything other than a very annoying minority."

Then let the bl.....dy government start spending some of its time and dollars on something / anything that is of actual consequence to the majority of its citizens.

Agree with this and the tenor of most other comments here, whether it's all BBC TV channels or BBC Radio 4 we've had what is a deviant lifestyle shoved down our throats - of course there are plenty of opportunities to switch channels, but it's a shame that they (the State Broadcaster) feels it has to push LGBTO propaganda down the throats of their (compulsory) subscribers.

There is a masonic mafia, concentrated in the arts and media, that is increasingly being allowed to push its minority agenda. At the same time it is vociferously campaigning to have any criticism of its actions and behaviour censored or made illegal.
Much of the output now focuses on its own lifestyle with the majority who pay for it told to like it or lump it.

The thing is we know it isn't a natural "development". Traditional ideas and values have been deliberately undermined or destroyed. The aim is to replace the traditional family with the organs of the state which are, naturally, controlled by the left.

" we've had what is a deviant lifestyle shoved down our throats "

Well that's about as subjective as it gets.

Care to define what you feel is deviant about the lifestyle of two people living together and sharing the same emotions, arguments and social interests, plus working in society, as heterosexuals..... in comparison say to corporate fraud, organised crime, domestic violence against women, hidden drug and alcohol abuse .

Well put it this way, it is biologically impossible for the species to continue as the only way to procreate is through a male and a female - we are designed in such a way make two people of the same sex procreating is impossible.

If people wish to live alternative lifestyles that's great; what they do in the privacy of their own homes is fine. What we don't need is these lifestyles rammed down our throats as the BBC has been doing over the last month.

We notice that there's no balance in this coverage such as what these deviants are costing us and the NHS in supporting their promiscuous life-style. We're supposed to celebrate ?
