Government seeks next gay policy ideas

From The Christian Institute

The Government will launch a consultation of LGBT people in the autumn, asking them for the next policy idea after redefining marriage.

One activist has responded, calling for the subjugation of religious beliefs that disagree with homosexuality.

Equalities Minister, Maria Miller, said: “this autumn, we are starting our LGB&T Call for Evidence, a consultation on what the next steps need to be.”
 
She asked the readers of the gay news website, Pink News, to “tell me what they think are the biggest issues still facing LGB&T people in this country and where government needs to prioritise action”.

Pink News then published an article by Adrian Tippetts which said: “We could easily make a shopping list of improvements, but first of all, an attitude change is needed.

“The first step is to acknowledge that human rights come before beliefs,” he said, adding: “If you did that, no consultation would be needed.”
