Steyn, on an incident that's been all over American talk radio this week:
...the other day, the author Lynette Burrows went on a BBC Five Live show to talk about the government's new "civil partnerships" and expressed her opinion - politely, no intemperate words - that the adoption of children by homosexuals was "a risk". The following day, Fulham police contacted her to discuss the "homophobic incident".As Steyn points out, cops would much rather go after non-violent thought criminals than people who might shoot at them. Thus "homophobia" becomes a priority crime while real property crime goes ignored.

When they came for the "homophobes", I didn't say anything, because I am opposed to discrimination in all forms
