Express is right

Big News objects to Express's labelling of opponents of the Civil Unions Bill as homophobes.

Well, what else are we supposed to call them?

Opposition to the bill is rooted in the belief that gay relationships are inferior, and therefore undeserving of formal legal recognition. This is homophobia. It's an ugly word, but those who object to being tarred with it have a simple solution: don't be homophobes. It's that simple.
