Perhaps you could clarify as to who said that these views are brutally suppressed?
I'm saying that bigotry isn't just sky pixie followers bashing gays. Trendies can also be pretty bigoted towards Christians.
This guy got well compensated but that doesn't mean that the bigotry underlying his treatment should be swept under the carpet.
As a sky pixie follower, I do not feel particularly oppressed when in the UK, but then I clearly have a reasonably thick skin . There are plenty who think not being religious qualifies them as intellectuals, though I am intellectually arrogant enough to tolerate that intellectual arrogance and silliness.
As I posted earlier, my impression is that they picked on him as they had him down as an annoying nutter. In terms of most likely to suffer from police harassment, I do not imagine it is because of his conservative views so much as them finding him annoying. That he has been compensated suggested it has been fairly handled. If there are regular cases of people being rounded up for being Christian, I will share the concern more deeply.
