Religious groups attack EU gay survey – before it's even published

IT ISN'T even out yet, but a European Union study into discrimination and violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people is already being rubbished by homophobic religious groups.

The EU's Agency for Fundamental Rights is to present the results of two years’ research next week, but according to this report religious outfits such as the US-based Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute have already criticised the survey, expressing regret that straight people couldn’t answer the questionnaire, and claiming the statistics are made up.

Please support teacher Carla Hale, sacked from school for being gay

A PETITION calling for the reinstatement of Carla Hale to her teaching post at Bishop Watterson High School in Columbus Ohio has attracted over 20,000 signatures, and we appeal to readers to add their voices to the petition.

The popular PE teacher, who worked at the school for 19 years, was promptly sacked after the school received an anonymous tipoff that she had included the name of her partner Julie in her mum's obituary last month.
