Following the announcement of Stonewall's "Bigot of the year" award,  
a spokesman for the Catholic Church said:


Stonewall s decision to award their Bigot of the year award to Cardinal O'Brien  
reveals the depth of their intolerance and their willingness to attack and demean  
those who don t share their views.

Stonewall and others have promoted terms like ˜bigot and ˜homophobe
relentlessly, in order to intimidate and vilify anyone who dares oppose
their agenda. It is an agenda which the wider public does not endorse and
which their excessive language has undermined.

Numerous public bodies give sizeable financial donations to Stonewall
including the Scottish Government, these intolerant and intimidatory
tactics should mean that this funding is now questioned and examined as a
matter of urgency.
