    I grew up in Liverpool and left as soon as I could, as fast as I my Vivienne Westwood clad lallies would carry me. Memories of Manchester in the early 90s are of a great club scene (and great sex!), but no more welcoming. I still remember being verbally abused by a Manc when I got out of the station on my way to Flesh at the Haçienda.

    In London I have never felt the levels of hostility as I did back then in the North.

    The Independent article says “Some look to the church in Liverpool for leadership in reversing ignorance and prejudice in a city where 55 per cent of children are educated in a religious setting”

    Has anyone considered that entrusting the Church (Anglican or RC)to look after education may actually foster a dark-age mentality to people of a different sexual orientation? I can just imagine one of the priests who taught me putting on a “DVD stamping out homophobia” in front of the class with a straight face. Perhaps those religious, moral values taught in those schools are what allowed a jury of the good people of Liverpool to acquit the man accused of beating this boy to death?

    I’m still waiting for someone to explain to me how a jury could be convinced that a man beat a SLEEPING man to death in self defense.

    Someone PLEASE explain to me how that is even remotely possible.

    Screw protesting, I say a large mob beats Mr. Alker with a book and hangs him from his nuts. Enough Mr Nice Gay, letting someone get away with murder is the last straw.

    Ubelievable. Judge Alker needs a good shout down from everybody to say the least. As for the gulity duo bastards, hunt them down and harass them.

    Most ‘gay bashings’ are men reacting or overreacting to criminal abuse that the homo 1st did. If a homo is going to abuse another man as this jury decided then the man has a right to use just force to defend.

    The fact is that homos often have anti-social personalities. If a homo is going to pinch another man’s butt or groin against will, then he deserves it if he gets bashed. Gay bashings are needed to punish homos who abuse others. Homos need to keep their filthy hands to themselves. Better yet, homos should give up homosexuality & impotence is good for homos.
