Meiningstyranni?

nettsidene til Melanie Phillips blir det stilt spørsmål om Storbrittania eigentleg er ein stad for den frie tale. Phillips melder om ei sak i The Telegraph. Det blir vist til ein diskusjon på BBC Radio Five Live om homofile sin rett til å adoptere. Eg siterer:

During the programme, she said she did not believe that homosexuals should be allowed to adopt. She added that placing boys with two homosexuals for adoption was as obvious a risk as placing a girl with two heterosexual men who offered themselves as parents. ‘It is a risk,’ she said. ‘You would not give a small girl to two men.’ A member of the public complained to the police and an officer contacted Mrs Burrows the following day to say a ‘homophobic incident’ had been reported against her.

Dette sjokkar meg. Sjølv om eg nok ikkje er einig med Burrows’ uttaling, så betyr ikkje det at vi skal anmelde henne for det. Er samfunnet i ferd med å bli eit meiningstyranni?
