Gay police suffer religious hatred

According to this article in the Times there has been a resurgence of what would once have been called 'canteen culture' , but in this latest version the homophobia has been taken up by other officers based on their religious beliefs.

The article reports that "police managers were unsure of what action to take". I really do think the police need to get their act together and stamp out this kind of unacceptable behaviour! Inaction on their parts seems to me a very clear indication that they think such homophobic reactions are just fine and dandy! Well, they are not! Or perhaps some of them even share these views ... perhaps it needs an undercover reporter to document some of these alleged incidents, just as happened a few years ago when virulent racism was uncovered in some police forces.
