Owen Jones travels to the city to speak to the protesters, teachers and activists at the heart of the row to ask what happens next. The Guardian reports.

    Not sure why Owen Jones’ religion should be imposed on everybody else. Believing that it is ‘Ok to be gay’, despite the historical, scientific and medical reasons for believing that it is not OK to be gay, is an irrational leap of faith worthy of the name ‘religion’.

  2. I’m “not sure” a moral code concocted together by a mass murdering 7th century pedophile who married a 6 year old, fully consummated that marriage by the time she was 9, slaughtered 800 Jews on just one of his many killing sprees and taught that it is fine for people to reproduce with their 1st cousins even though we know that causes retardation “should be imposed on everyone else” either if you want to get all pedantic. That’s what we should be worried about in my opinion. Neither do I recognise any of these protesters demonstrating against the grooming, drugging and raping of literally thousands of under age white girls in towns and cities up and down the country over many years for some reason. I guess we all have different moral parameters. (Shrugs)
