Last ditch attempt to protect freedom of speech and conscience?
Michael Kirke | Jan 29 2013 | comment  
A British MP is going to table a bill in the House of Commons this week which seeks to protect “conscientious beliefs about the definition of marriage”. The bill, being introduced by Edward Leigh, will seek to amend equality legislation to protect free speech. Among other things, it addresses the perceived threat to teachers and public workers who might find the Government’s attempt to legislate for a redefinition of marriage.

Free speech and tolerance strike again…

Issues at stake in Brazil’s debate on homosexuality
Fabio Lacerda M. Silva | Mar 7 2012 | comment  
Brazil's debate on homosexuality confronts society there with two issues of paramount importance: one is the prevailing conception of what it is to be a human being; the second is the issue of freedom of expression. In addressing these debates in a shallow way, Brazilian media has done a disservice to society, especially to the group most exposed to the news: homosexual men and women who consider their sexual orientation an issue.
