Lords win on free speech amendment

Lord Waddington (http://www.theyworkforyou.com/peer/lord_waddington) has succeeded in amending the incitement to “homophobic hatred” offence to include a free speech provision which reads:

‘In this Part, for the avoidance of doubt, the discussion or criticism of sexual conduct or practices or the urging of persons to refrain from or modify such conduct or practices shall not be taken of itself to be threatening or intended to stir up hatred.’

 

It would be good for Christians to thank Lord Waddington and his 80 colleagues for their important work, here is an easy way – http://www.writetothem.com/?person=uk.org.publicwhip/person/13264.
