Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
As for nasty beliefs, Kevin, well I remember having a few beliefs at nineteen that I've spent the rest of my life extirpating. Being brought up a Catholic in an all-boys grammar school run by blinkered priests in a northern working-class town in the sixties was hardly conducive to the early development of enlightened attitudes. It was The Done Thing to be anti-nigger, anti-Paki, anti-Jew, anti-queer, anti-proddy and anti-equality for women, and no parent, teacher or peer would question you. Basically because they thought the same as you. Things you subsequently have to fight against in your own head all by yourself. Which is why it makes me sick to hear all these sanctimonious bastards condemning a young woman simply for the things she's allegedly said in a stinking refugee camp.
