A statement from the Scottish Catholic Media Office
"Stonewall’s decision to award their “Bigot of the year” award to Cardinal O'Brien reveals the depth of their intolerance and their willingness to attack and demean those who don’t share their views.Well, Scottish Catholics are used to suffering from prejudice, intimidation, ostracism, villification, and oppression from powerful anti-Catholic organisations, today there are few more powerful organisations in the UK than Stonewall.
Stonewall and others have promoted terms like ‘bigot’ and ‘homophobe’ relentlessly, in order to intimidate and vilify anyone who dares oppose their agenda. It is an agenda which the wider public does not endorse and which their excessive language has undermined.
Numerous public bodies give sizeable financial donations to Stonewall including the Scottish Government, these intolerant and intimidatory tactics should mean that this funding is now questioned and examined as a matter of urgency.”
