Woman Who Disagreed With Gay Adoption Gets Call From Police
AN AUTHOR has defended her right to free speech after expressing her views on gay adoption.
Lynette Burrows, of Hills Road, Cambridge, was shocked when she was told her opinion could have been homophobic. She spoke to the police on Friday and said the call was "sinister" and as if Britain was a police state.
The author of Fight for the Family was discussing civil partnerships for gay couples on Radio Five Live. Regarding gay adoption, she said a girl would not be placed for adoption with two heterosexual men.
She said: "Nobody trusts men with girls but they will give a little boy to two homosexuals, which is madness."
After the broadcast, police in London received a complaint from a member of the public, and a policewoman contacted Mrs Burrows.
Mrs Burrows said: "She said to me a homophobic incident had been registered against me. She admitted it wasn't against the law so I said 'why are you wasting my time?'
"She said it was their policy to investigate remarks considered to be homophobic. I was expressing a perfectly standard opinion on matters of public interest. It is a sinister thing if police are forming their own policy regardless of the law."
Mrs Burrows added: "I think the issue of gay adoption is something which ought to be spoken about. The idea of telling you you can't talk about it is so repressive, it's like the KGB calling you up."
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said homophobic, racist and domestic incidents were "priority crimes".
He said: "It is standard practice for all parties to be spoken to, even if the incident is not strictly seen as a crime."
