Police Scotland and the Scottish Government Reported for Hate Incident

You don’t encourage love by promoting hatred of religion.

You state that “A hate incident is any incident that is not a criminal offence, but something which is perceived by the victim or any other person to be motivated by hate or prejudice.”  By your own criteria your posters, especially the one on religion is a hate incident. I perceive it as being motivated by hate and prejudice. Why? In my day-to-day life I experience a great deal of anti-Christian prejudice, fuelled by ignorance and prejudice. Your poster will just add to that. 

 

I  have just fulfilled my civic duty and reported both Police Scotland and the Scottish Government for a ‘Hate Incident’  following this incident described yesterday. The ‘Hate’ Police are Now Here

To Police Scotland and the Scottish Government

I would like to report a Hate Crime. As the Scottish government and Police Scotland encourage us to do so- One Scotland 

Going home the other day I noticed a poster that said: Dear Bigots, you can’t spread your religious hate here. End of sermon. Yours, Scotland. “ This is part of a series which is also addressed to transphobes, homophobes, racists etc.   The only problem is that this is produced by the Scottish Government and Police Scotland.

Why? In my day-to-day life I experience a great deal of anti-Christian prejudice, fuelled by ignorance and prejudice. Your poster will just add to that. You imply that it is religious people who are responsible for what you call homophobia and transphobia (although you don’t define what you mean by these terms – is being opposed to SSM ‘homophobia’?   Is believing that a woman is a ‘female adult human’ transphobia?  By not defining your terms you have of course left room for people to claim your support for anything that they determine is ‘phobic’).

Examples of the hate mail I regularly receive (most of this was online and public).

“I hate organised religion, but boy I sure hate you more”

Never mind the theory, just LOOK at the fella. Wouldn’t want him anywhere near my kids! 

“Personally, as a secularist, I hate religion and feel I have every right to, despite attempts by the Scottish government to sneak a blasphemy law round the back door by making it an offence this year to hate religion. “

Religion as a dangerous substance is clearly demonstrated by DAR as addict. He pedals the stuff, overdoses on his own stash, misuses and abuses. Lock your doors.

Don’t come back to this country…you are not welcome

I can give you numerous examples of people being bullied at school because they are termed ‘bible bashers’, sometimes even by teachers.
