Showing solidarity with Muslims insults gays – Rod Liddle

Rod_Liddle“The chief constable of Nottinghamshire police, Steve Green, has just bought 20,000 green ribbons for his officers to wear to that they can ‘show solidarity’ with the county’s Muslim community…. I suppose some people might find it a little sinister that the politically neutral police should have started making such a public declaration of allegiance. If you were gay, for example, you might wonder if the green ribbon meant that the entire police force supported Islam’s rigorous approach to homosexuality.”
