More Idiots in Hong Kong

So an anti-gay-rights pro-bigotry pro-hatred group called up 611 people and got 415.48 of them to agree with them. I wonder how those 611 were chosen and I wonder how the questions were phrased.

From today’s SCMP:

Almost 70 per cent of people believe society should tolerate anti-homosexual attitudes

The Family School Sexual Orientation Discrimination Ordinance Concern Group, an anti-gay-rights group which commissioned the research, said the Equal Opportunities Commission should respect people’s opinions and halt a review of anti-discrimination laws which could extend protection to gay couples in a “de facto marriage”.

The survey, based on interviews with 611 adults, was conducted by Polytechnic University researchers in November.

Some 68 per cent of respondents agreed that society should tolerate different opinions, including those against homosexuality, while only 15 per cent disagreed, the study showed. And 57 per cent disagreed with the idea that schools should teach pupils that “both homosexual and heterosexual love are beautiful”.

At present, the city has no law against discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation.

 

Roger Wong Wai-ming, the head of the family school group, said the government and the EOC should not “deprive” people of their “freedom of speech” by passing laws to protect gay rights.

Yes, idiots should have the same right to freedom of speech as anyone else. But not if they are using those freedoms to deny the same freedoms to others.

  1. Of course discrimination based on sexual orientation should not be tolerated. Of course the expression of anti-gay views should be tolerated. Of course parents should be able to express their views that they do not want homosexuality to be endorsed or promoted in schools.

    1. “Of course the expression of anti-gay views should be tolerated.” Why “of course”? Are you okay with the expression of anti-Jewish opinions or anti-female opinions?

      “Of course parents should be able to express their views that they do not want homosexuality to be endorsed or promoted in schools.” I don’t think anyone is seeking endorsement or promotion. Acceptance.
