[with many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] taoist_goth for posting about the boycott...]

Yes, them. You know. The bunch who campaigned so loudly against the BBC screening Jerry Springer: The Opera.

They've since threatened to lead a boycott of cancer charity Maggie's Centres if it accepts any money from the Springer opera's charity fundraising performance. Presumably because they see that money as tainted. They explained this away on their site as "Cancer Charity Escapes PR Disaster".

As [livejournal.com profile] taoist_goth also pointed out, they're fucktards.

So. I went to their website and read a bit of their blurb. Just out of interest, as you do.

They have a section called "Britain in Sin", revisiting the Ten Commandments and detailing just what they think's wrong with the country. It's a long list, but some of the things they're against include:
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the European Convention on Human Rights, the abolition of the Witchcraft Act (1735), the United Nations Convention on Rights of the Child, the Equal Pay Act 1970, the Sex Discrimination Acts 1975 & 1986, the Education Act 1987 [because it abolished the use of the cane in schools], the Firearms (Amendment) Acts 1988 and 1997 [they're pro-gun ownership], The Sexual Offences Act 1967 [for legalising homosexual acts between consenting adults], Suspension of the Gold Standard and, er, the introduction of VAT.
They also have a "No King But Jesus" section, based around a speech by one John Ashcroft (yes, that John Ashcroft). Combine that with their view on guns and you might start to wonder just where their support is coming from...
