BBC Sack Iain Lee for Taking to Task Homophobic Guests

One of the UK's most talented broadcasters Iain Lee has lost his job as Breakfast Show presenter at BBC Thee Counties Radio after complaints were received about an  interview on homosexuality.

The Interview was with Libby Powell from campaign group Christian Concern, Iain Lee said that prison worker Revd Barry Trayhorn was "Obnoxious" and "poisonous"

 



Trayhorn is taking his employer to a tribunal amid claims he was forced to resign for reading a Bible verse about  homosexuality.

 

Mrs Powell said that homophobia was a fear, Iain replied by saying it was a "cute answer" but homophobia was a "hatred of gays".

In 2014 Christian Concern founder Andrea Minichiello Williams urged Jamaica to keep same sex intercourse illegal and reportedly suggesting that Tom Daley is in a relationship with a man because his father died. This year Ms Williams  wrote in The Sun: “Same-sex couples having a baby by way of reproductive medicine are deliberately depriving a child of either a mother or a father"

 

Both the BBC and Iain Lee did apologise for the tone of the Interview, this however has not been good enough for some faceless person in the BBC.

NO APOLOGY SHOULD HAVE EVER BEEN MADE, IAIN LEE HAS DONE NOTHING WRONG, THE BBC SHOULD REINSTATE IAIN WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT, OR DOES THE BBC NOW SUPPORT HOMOPHOBIA?
