Ruth Kelly and equality

"Ruth Kelly should go". This is, apparently, the view of all right-thinking people. No it doesn't have anything to do with how she's conducted herself in her new job; she's failed the ideology test, y'see. Plus she's in Opus Dei, so that won't do.

It takes a special kind of chutzpah to express this view in a post entitled "Judge not, that ye be not judged."

Stonewall seem unpeturbed by Kelly's appointment, so they've failed the ideology test too. Brett Lock writes,
"I am absolutely furious with Stonewall!"
Oh, are you? Are you really? That'll be what the exclamation mark is for then.

Some of the militantly 'tolerant' are often strangely intolerant, don'tcha find?

Update: See also Chris Dillow, Tim Worstall and Mr Eugenides on this subject.
