Responses to 'One Scotland' 'hate crime' posters

Printer-friendly version

'One Scotland' - a joint campaign of the Scottish government and Police Scotland has recently started a campaign targeting 'hate crime', featuring posters addressed to 'bigots', 'homophobes' and 'transphobes', among others.

David Robertson, a Church minister and Director of Solas CPC first brought the posters to public attention. He explained some of the problems with the poster campaign:

"The posters are somewhat ambiguous... selective... intimidatory... [and] self-contradictory... [they] say ‘love lives in this country, not hate’ – whilst encouraging people to hate anyone who dares to disagree with their new State morality."

In a later post, he responded to the posters by reporting them as a hate incident.

He explained some of the anti-Christian abuse he has received, the threatening tone of the posters and their selectivity in addressing some forms of hate incidents and not others.

You can read and view all of the original posters on the 'One Scotland' website.

As a light-hearted reply to the campaign, Christian Concern has produced three responses in poster form that you can read and view below.
