BBC's "Should homosexuals face execution" debate slammed by openly gay Minister for Europe

"Minister for Europe Chris Bryant [pictured] has attacked the BBC for holding a debate on whether gays should be executed. Bryant, who is gay, told he would be writing to the BBC's World Service director Peter Horrocks to demand an explanation, adding that the online debate could lead to further homophobic hatred," reports UK Pink News. " Bryant said: I will be asking him in the strongest terms to explain. How insensitive could the BBC possibly be? If they want to stoke homophobic hatred, this would be the right way.'"
