More Bigotry

In October 2007, HM The Queen gave a speech in honour of the visit of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, in it she had this to say:

We have shared values that stem from two great religious traditions based on Abrahamic faiths. In a world where some people seek to exploit religion to undermine our societies, we must continue to work together to promote common values, strengthen mutual understanding, and encourage appreciation of what is best in both our cultures

That’s right folks, Abrahamic religions – persecuting Gays all over the world. Fuck, even the ABof C hasn’t the courage of his convictions to stand up to the minority morons.

A lot of people were aghast at the time, when she said “we have shared values” – but actually she’s right – it’s just not values one would wish to shout about.
