Religious bigots on the march outside Parliament.

Well, my blood pressure has increased along with experiencing a bout of apoplexy as the religious bigots are on the march again but this time outside parliament. They are protesting against the Sexual Orientation Regulations. The Lords are debating whether to scrap the law and the vote will be taken at 7:30pm this evening.

Keith Porteous Wood of the National Secular Society said: “Scare mongering, gross exaggeration, and even factual inaccuracies are being employed by Christian groups to try to panic politicians into rejecting these regulations. Their tactics are becoming ever more desperate and misleading.

I am hoping there will be a counter-demonstration.....

There is also a piece written by the Toynbee One calling on Peers to get themselves down to parliament and vote for these regulations.

Update: Apols. for poor quality of pic. But there were about 100-150 of them protesting and some were getting nicked by the cops. The vote is being taken later tonight. Oh and thanks to the National Secular Society for the email.

They failed to scrap the regulations in a 3 to 1 defeat.
