What heartening news it is that Adrian Smith has plucked up the courage to sue Trafford Housing Trust, writes Milo Yiannopoulos:
“Diverse” in modern Britain is of course a funny word. One of the most toxic effects of the last government’s demented equality and diversity crusade was the marginalisation of the ordinary, hard-working Christian people who are the economic and social glue that – just about – keeps this country together.
It is persecution, plain and simple: as Cristina Odone wrote in the Telegraph following Smith’s demotion, “Being taken for a cretin, a creationist and a chauvinist is not much better than a spell in the stocks.”
How depressing that it is only Christian journalists and popular but slightly comic figures like Ann Widdecombe who are prepared to call the government to account for ignoring the persecution of Christians both here and abroad, while withdrawing aid from countries who persecute homosexuals. And how shameful that our ruling class’s morality seems to be so easily swayed by prevailing Left-wing fashions.
So it’s right that Adrian Smith’s persecution should have made the headlines. His courage should be applauded. And bravo, too, to the Mail on Sunday for sticking up for what can only be described as Britain’s last remaining persecuted minority: us.
I sense sympathy from the general public, even from non-Christians, for Smith’s plight. With any luck, the quiet but resolute fightback I have been hoping for is about to commence.
