her reply

Dear Sir,
No is not answer as all i want you to do is if you see this kind of inoporiate act of Gay behavour is to say,please not in forest cafe as the forest cafe is a place where people like me and other come to have a nice time and not have this in their faces.
please do not have one rule for homosexauls and one rule for others as its a sin in the eyes of god what they are doing.
but i find it rather ofensive and so does my boyfreind but you as a scotsman might not.
but i ask you in good faith to say to the 2 young spanish girls who have short black hair with spectacles on to cool it and if they want to do this please do it somewhere else as if they do it again i will start shouting at them and i will cause a riot.
Ana.

Words fail me completely (and you all know that's quite unusual...) Can we not ban them for being bigots? Surely the fact that she is asking us to discriminate in this way breaks the law, no?

So where's the rule that would stop a straight couple getting off in Forest if they so desired?

Rather than barring, you could suggest that if they don't like it they don't have to keep coming. You could even go a step further and say we'd be happier if people with that attitude didn't come near us.

I guess the two main options are to either continue stonewalling her, or write back explaining in eloquent detail why we don't agree with their bigoted views. I'd suggest the latter. It's good to have intercourse with the community, and exchanging letters with morons can be fun!

i'm all for a reasonable response but when you read this choice nugget from the email they sent last year:

they must be put to Death;
their blood will be on their own heads.
Leviticus 20v13


you realise its pretty much beyond a joke.

The fact that the 2 emails are almost identical suggests its a pisstake, if so it has a humour value of 0 in my eyes.

Quoting that to us in an email is pretty close to 'threatening behaviour' in my book... if this isn't some kind of sick excuse for humour then, given that particular choice of words, and the 'riot' comment I think she (and possibly her boyfriend) should be barred immediately on health and safety grounds.

Seriously...

When I first saw this post I thought the BB was playing up and it had marked a story from months ago as not read. It's weird that the same couple come in on 2 occasions and have exactly the same complaint. therefor I think they are just trying to stir things up for no reason. they should be barred though as they sound like a tw*t.
It's like God's vagina!

Weird!

She gave a different name on the first letter: Ana Beto Lopez
2nd letter: Ana Pablo Lopez Hernandez

Pablo is like Paul, right? Can a girl be Pablo?

These lesbians must be following her around!

Tha other possibility is that only she can see them and her boyfriend is humouring her... that would also explain why Swithun keeps 'missing out'.....

Actually, has anyone ever seen these famous Spanish snogging lesbians? Just askin'....

Nope, definately you. Asked for you by full name and when I said you weren't around said "Well, tell him from me that I think he's a hero!" and wandered off.

"as the next time I see them I will start shouting and cause a riot..." this concerns me the most, this is NOT forest behaviour.
Certainly any action that involves bodily fluids should not be in close proximity to food prep areas for health reasons, exchange of bodily fluids replacing the original cause of disease : contamination by faeces. If the lovers are on the other side of the food area, then there is no problem with potential contamination.

A behavioural and emotional problem stemming from misguidance has found a crossroad. Strength to the forest. Either the lassie (I assumed it was a laddie on first reading of the complaint) continues her self inflicted offence, or, she can liberate a little, find further knowings & educations and become wiser.

Christian and Muslim ways are ones dependent on books written with the intent to control, one another and each other. We are all the same.

Were the two Spanish women fearful or joyful? Perhaps that is the sign at the crossroad.

Blessed is the forest...
