Christian policeman fired for anti-gay emails

"A Christian policeman who circulated emails at work suggesting homosexuality was sinful has been sacked for misconduct.
Constable Graham Cogman, who had previously threatened to take Norfolk Police to an employment tribunal, claims the force has been "bombarded" by posters advertising gay events.
"The blatant support for homosexual rights in Norfolk Police makes being a Christian officer extremely difficult," he told the Mail on Sunday in July.
The complaints against PC Cogman stem back to 1995 when a gay colleague sent emails round to staff encouraging them to support Gay History Month by wearing a pink ribbon.
In response to this the Constable circulated emails quoting the Bible, suggesting homosexual sex was sinful.
He was sent to a disciplinary tribunal who fined him 13 days pay and barred him from using the internal messaging system.
Despite the ban, PC Cogman posted a link to an American Christian helpline.
When he was interviewed by bosses about it he said he had posted the link as he was trying to help people struggling with their sexuality."
Somehow, I think the only people who would be "struggling with their sexuality" are the ones he might have convinced are wrong and evil.
