Scotland Yard are investigating their own over an alleged faith crime:

The Gay Police Association (GPA) is being investigated after it claimed a rise in homophobic attacks was due to religious belief. An advert, showing a Bible next to a pool of blood under the heading "in the name of the father", appeared in a national newspaper's supplement. Scotland Yard said the inquiry "centres on whether the advert constitutes a faith crime."

The advert pointed out that "In the last 12 months, the GPA has recorded a 74% increase in homophobic incidents, where the sole or primary motivating factor was the religious belief of the perpetrator."

See, that's the problem with reading a book that has too much 'thou shalt not do this' and 'thou shalt not do that' - it leads to frustration. Frustration leads to anger and anger leads to a disruption in the Force. In this case the rainbow side of the force.

It seems that the investigation was prompted by a single complaint - glad to see that thin blue line can still get nice and thick over something when it wants to.
