'British values' enforcer Polly Harrow: voicing homosexuality opposition could be "breaking the law"

Printer-friendly version

A 'British values' enforcer has said that voicing any opposition to same-sex 'marriage' could be against the law. Polly Harrow, who works at a college in Huddersfield as Head of Safeguarding and Prevent, made the comments on BBC Radio 4.

She said that believing homosexuality to be wrong "is your business" but "if you speak it out loud you might be breaking the law." Her comments show how the government's counter-terrorism strategy could penalise Christians.
