Some stories I missed, or didn't get round to writing about:
- A woman who falsely accused her father of raping her as a child after undergoing recovered memory therapy on the NHS has reached an out-of-court settlement with Tayside NHS. The treatment is responsible for a number of claims of Satanic abuse, though this case had no such elements. Settlement for bogus abuse woman—BBC News, 20th October 2007.
- It seems that it's not only the Roman Catholic Church which has been covering up child sexual abuse by its clergy. The Church of England has a similar problem. C of E child abuse was ignored for decades —The Daily Telegraph, 22nd October 2007. (Thank you to Andrew Ian Dodge.)
- OMFG!!!!! A fictional character is a poof! That should upset the fundies even more. Rowling Says Dumbledore Is Gay—Newsweek, 19th October 2007. (My favourite quote from J.K. Rowling on the matter is in the BBC News version of the story:
Oh, my god, the fan fiction.)
- The case of a Christian magistrate who resigned because his bigotry restricted his ability to do his job has reached an industrial tribunal. Christian JP forced out over gay adoption cases, tribunal hears—The Guardian, 22nd October 2007. See also WWJD?: Lies and Blackmail!—Prattle, January 26th 2007.
