Listening to gay rights opposition ‘like visiting a farm museum’

CAMPAIGNERS against gay rights have a quaint, old world charm, say experts.

Researchers found that listening to the arguments was like visiting a farm museum in Norfolk where people dressed as 14th century peasants make butter using a big spoon and a bucket.

Dr Tom Logan said: “It’s a fascinating historical curiosity, but you watch them – pumping away like there’s no tomorrow – and you just keep thinking, ‘thank Christ we don’t have to do that anymore’.

“They’re trying to keep the old ways alive, bless ’em, but it is just a museum. At the end of the day the visitors get in their cars and go home and then the janitor goes around and switches all the lights off and locks up.

“The volunteers may be really enthusiastic about making butter in a bucket, but the rest of us are eating low-fat spread, high in Omega 3, and have been for years.”

Dr Logan has suggested Lottery funds could be used to set up an interactive intolerance museum where visitors could pay to watch someone weave an argument out of bits of Bible and some string.

He added: “They should make the arguments by candlelight. And they should speak while holding their lapels.”
