    Anfieldexile SchoolsImprove organizations that continue to incite homophobia should be prosecuted. It’s hate crime in my book.

    SchoolsImprove Schools and parents should study the ‘Safe at School’ policies of spucprolife and reject the LGBT activists’ CHIPS program.

    JamieGBarry ukiplgbt So a leaflet, distributed by a fringe group, made by a tiny and unsupported minority is news? Come on. Get a life!
