Homophobic monks sighted in Brighton and Cambridge

On Wednesday I blogged about the sighting of a monk delivering homophobic leaflets in Market Harborough:
The leaflets were delivered to homes in Granville Street, Bath Street, Nithsdale Avenue, Claxton* Street and Northampton Road. 
One resident, who asked not to be named, said: “I saw the monk in Bath Street, followed by two angry people.”
It turns out that homophobic monks have also been sighted in Brighton and Cambridge.

Backwatersman has suggested on Twitter that, like Spring-heeled Jack, the homophobic monk may be a manifestation of our collective subconscious fears.

* Actually it's Caxton Street, after the pioneer of printing. There used to be a type foundry there.

So some Christian Monks object to homosexuality. Morality rather than an unfounded fear of the same things . Rob

i seriously doubt that this writer knows what a phobia is. i know a girl who has a phobia concerning peas, the vegetable. i mean it, you could trap this girl in the corner of a room with a handfull of peas on the floor. THAT'S phobic. Thinking that two guys getting it on is either immoral or just downright icky is not a phobia.
