Homophobic Tory Student Suspended

Fergus Bowman, a second year politics and religion student, showed how intelligent some young Tories really can be following his suspension from the the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN) and the Conservative Party after being linked to homophobic and racist groups on Facebook. One of the groups called 'Homos burn in hell' had pictures of the 'Ku Klux Klan' posted and Bowman, chair of the UCLAN Student Union Conservative Futures Group, was supposedly the creater of the group. A number of homophobic and racist statements and comments have also been attributed to him. When confronted by the local paper the Lancashire Evening Post, he said that it was just a bit of fun and that he does not condone homophobia in anyway.

Another good reason to vote Labour!

In front of such much gratuitous violence against the homosexuals, and considering the ear-piercing silence of the world; as Christians coming from different confessions and progress of faith, we believe that it is in our duty to give some concrete answer, obviously, we won’t keep silent.
That is why on Friday the 4th of April 2008 we will meet together in several cities of Italy to celebrate many vigils of prayer to remember the victims of homophobia and to smash in, through our testimony, the wall of silence and embarrassment that usually prevails in our churches and our society about this heavy problem.
It is up to you, as Christians, to decide whether it is time to break your silence or not.

Vigils of prayer hold in the following cities (updates incoming):
ITALIA/ITALY: Roma, Firenze, Milano, Bassano del Grappa, Rimini, Aosta
IRLANDA/IRELAND: Dublin
