A British sociologist has denounced a recent effort by the United Kingdom Department of Education to investigate religious schools and their views on homosexuality.
Neil Davenport, head of Sociology at the JFS Sixth Form Centre in London, wrote a column on spiked-online.com Thursday asking "Why shouldn't faith schools criticize gays?"

Needs to be cried from every hill - often.
Why shouldn’t people point out that when a homosexual soldier throws out close to a million documents and puts the status of numerous fellow soldiers, including people in the military who are homosexual at risk, why do the homosexuals seem to cheer him as a hero when he put people indiscriminately in danger? Why do homosexuals hardly utter a word when a man named Chris Stevens got beaten, gang raped, and killed in Libya in an embassy attack, who begged for months leading up to it for better security, and who very likely was homosexual, why is it the so-called “homophobes” who actually seem to care about him ending up dead? Why is it considered hateful to admit the CDC statistics? It’s all pretty mind-boggling to me, I must admit.
