Police Double Standards

A few months ago the Gay Police Association placed an advert in The Independent blaming Christians for homophobic attacks. The advert featured a large picture of The Bible next to a pool of blood. The Police received 50,000 complaints but yesterday the CPS dropped the case.

This would be fine, except that the CPS is prosecuting Stephen Green for handing out a leaflet with quotations from the Bible about homosexuality. The police admitted that he had not been violent but that he was arrested purely because of the content of his flyers.

Yet, the police refused to do anything about those Muslim protesters whose flyers were far more threatening and abusive.

All this comes just days after it was revealed that Gloucestershire Police were discriminating against white males. It is about time that the police and other law-enforcement agencies started using the same rules for everyone.
