Mail slams gays

From the you-couldn’t-make-it-up department:

The Daily Mail is worried about needlessly offensive language in its front-page splash today

It charges the BAAF’s Pink Guide to adoption with thoughtless offensiveness in branding opponents of gay adoption as ‘retarded homophobes’. The Mail’s report quotes some rather reasonably voiced criticisms of why many might think this offensive, including Christian groups and disability campaigners.

The case for civility and respect – even or especially when we disagree deeply with each other – is a good one.

Just out of interest, what’s the Mail’s banner headline?

SLURRED BY THE ADOPTION NAZIS

Shurely shome mishtake?

Looks like the Mail’s on top form today.
