Posted on 03/23/2013 4:13:46 PM PDT by marshmallow
A British judge upheld on Friday a decision to ban a Christian group from placing adverts on London buses that suggested people could be cured of homosexuality.
The group, Core Issues Trust, wanted to place adverts on the side of London's distinctive red double-decker buses that read: "Not gay! Ex-gay, post-gay and proud. Get over it!"
The proposed adverts were a response to a campaign by gay rights group Stonewall, which had run adverts on London buses that read: "Some people are gay. Get over it!"
In a 35-page ruling, High Court judge Beverley Lang dismissed Core Issues Trust's claim for a judicial review into the ban on the adverts imposed by Transport for London (TFL).
"(The advert) was not a contribution to a reasoned debate," she wrote, saying that the group's freedom of expression was counter-balanced by the risk of causing grave offence to gay people and increasing homophobic attacks.
Core Issues Trust said it would appeal, arguing the judgment was "likely to stifle open and free debate" about homosexuality and discriminate against "those who reject a 'gay' identity".
The group says it aims to help "people who voluntarily seek to change from a 'gay' lifestyle to a gender-affirming one".
Stonewall welcomed the judgment, saying the decision to ban what it described as "voodoo 'gay cure' adverts" was correct.

I have always found it interesting that homosexuals are so afraid of this statement, if as they claim homosexuality is set, then what are they afraid of, and why would they care if someone wishes not to engage in the activity any longer.
the homostapo even goes after those homosexuals who said they made a mistake and are now saying they are cured.
That is how afraid these feces pushers are.
As for the UK, ARF, a country being invaded by one group while accepting another agenda which is opposed to the invaders.
Nah nothing could go wrong there.
You are born with X
You BELIEVE nature made a mistake and you should have gotten Y at the shop.
You go to a Doctor/surgeon to get modified from original equipment based on pure BELIEF and WANT.
This is “Good”.
You are born hetrosexual. No science proves otherwise.
You BELIEVE/are propagandised/whatever into liking people with the same factory parts.
This is “Good”
You decide that the risk of AIDS/guilt/shame/a change of heart for WHATEVER REASON occurs and you decide that you really are not what you BELIEVED/WANTED AT ONE TIME...
This is racist/bigoted/homophobic/a crime against humanity because CHANGE IS WRONG.
Eventually when this all implodes on itself and the Road Warrior scenario begins, I am going to take EXTREME PLEASURE in watching these idiots turned into human cattle/slaves to the most feral libs. I really am.
If you don’t want to be cured, don’t have one. Funny how the Left only holds this view on infanticide.
“why would they care if someone wishes not to engage in the activity any longer.”
I’ve wondered that too. After all, no one is stopping those who wish to engage in homosexual activity if they wish to continue to do so. What business is it of theirs if someone else wishes to not engage in it?
Since homosexual individuals only make up 1-3% of the population, I’m guessing they’re scared that the dating pool for them will dry up. That or their consciences are convicting them of the fact that regardless of what their feelings are, they do have a choice to abstain and control themselves from such activities.
they hate the triuth and hate it when anyone mentions their agenda or how they act like the NAZI’s.
Look at years ago when DR Laura spoke up, they went full attack and never let up on her and yet she is right.
Children do better with a mother and a father etc.
I;ve found that when you get their supporters and use every argument for homosexual marriage for say polygamy then they hate it.
What could a "reasoned debate" consist of, if one side is not allowed to express their point of view?
spolt little children who want their own way all the time and throw the doll out of the baby carriage when they don;t get it.
truth hurts them, they are so infatuated with their agenda that the leaders of the homostapo use the weak minded and mentally ill to push a bigger agenda than the idiots think is marriage
Interesting isn’t it? Thanks for your post! :)
“I;ve found that when you get their supporters and use every argument for homosexual marriage for say polygamy then they hate it.”
I pulled a similar argument on a pro-abort liberal when I argued how the Confederate Southerners weren’t pro-slavery but “pro-choice” on slavery. He did not like it one bit.
I wonder if it would be illegal to solicit a cure for heterosexuality?
Something makes me think that would be fine...
Ah,. . . female judge. I suspect the content of the ad would get a better hearing from a British male judge, who would certainly know of some classmates who’d engaged in buggery while attending an all-male public school and had given up on homosexuality and married women once they got to university.
In the eyes of the forces of Satan, there is no such thing as evil...there is no such thing as sin...there is no such thing as God.
Right and wrong are a relic of the past.
These were my exact thoughts reading this horrific trash coming from the People’s Republic of Britistan.
Good news however, is that in Greece and Italy, the gaystapo are being exposed and driven out.
I second dat emotion.
Good one. That’s a perfect response.
Thats the point: they want to silence all opposing views.
Indeed. For a lot of boys, homosexual sex is a phase,
I'm trial-running my own response to that.
Same-sex behavior probably has always existed in every society. Agreed?
And that raises the excellent question of why gay marriage has never existed in ANY society.
The reason is that there is nothing in a gay pairing which requires the socially and legally enforced "twosiness" which is a part of the central definition of marriage: "for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, til death do us part."
Gay relationships are historically and inherently more fluid than the husband-wife dyad. As not-for-us marchers in Gay Paree put it recently: "We're gayer without marriage."
What is it about the specifically male-female pairing that makes it require the blessings (or, mind you, the burdens) of social, religious, and legal definition and enforcement? It's the fact that this is the only form of sexual union which can spontaneously result in procreation.
No strictly adult-adult relationship requires vows of fidelity except man-woman pair-bonding. This is because adults can negotiate the boundaries of their own relationships: by custom, by consent, or by contract.
Only man-woman couples need the structure of law--- not to bond them to each other, but to bond them to the children which may result from their sexual union. Marriage is the only institution we have which is intended to permanently link a man, a woman, and the children they beget and bear together from their union.
It exists to assert, not the adults' desires, but the children's rights: their right to the provision, care, and sustenance of their natural father and mother.
Why would people with an inherently more fluid gay relationship dynamic, actually require the limitations of a religiously-rooted, historically-fraught, heteronormative, gender-binary legal bond?
Believe me, you're gayer without it.
I agree, of course. Human beings are male/female, two sides of the same coin.

We should seriously ask ourselves how did we get to a status quo where a tiny fraction of the population that choose to engage in disgusting, unhealthy, unnatural perverted sex run everything? Just pretend for a minute that you never heard of "gaydom" or "gayness" or "transgender" or "Heather has two mommies". You wake up and all of a sudden - here we are. How did we get that way? Because we didn't put a stop to it decades ago. Now what?
Anyone wanting on/off either ping list, FREEPMAIL me.
oh I questioned alright and saw Hannity, Rush, elected officials and others who never spoke up, who knew this was coming but wanted to keep their jobs and play it safe
They are the cowards who are just as much as to blame
I saw plenty of "converts" to heterosexuality after art school.
Your elegantly reasoned response would make perfect sense to a sensible person. Unfortunately, we are dealing with the Father of Lies here. They don’t rally want marriage; they want:
society’s stamp of approval for homosexual behaviors
money benefits usually reserved for married couples
the females want to have children without having to remain attractive to a man
the males want to erode any barriers to living with children and having access to lots of children. If they have to pose as a nice married couple, what’s it to them? Most of the males, at least, do not intend to uphold any of the other norms, such as fidelity.
To figure out how we got here, we have to go back to the Communist goals for America in 1963. The 26th goal was to normalize homosexuality. It was never just a small group of perverts pushing homosexuality but the entire left-wing infrastructure in this nation.
And, why didn't conservatives put a stop to it? Because conservatism was infiltrated by libertarians that have no problem with the homosexual agenda.
