Northampton has its clown: Market Harborough, it seems, has a homophobic monk.
The Leicester Mercury reports:
A man dressed in a monk’s habit has posted “vile” homophobic leaflets through doors in Leicestershire.
Police have launched a hate crime investigation into the incident, which happened on Tuesday afternoon in part of Market Harborough.
Several people have complained about the leaflets which claimed homosexuality was a sin, immoral, a pathological condition and the work of “the Devil”.
It also claimed homosexuality was “directly linked to pagan idolatry and its attendant depravity” and that events such as Leicester Pride were “lewd occasions”.The paper goes on to tell us:
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.”
