From Wednesday's Guardian: BBC news website asks users: 'Should homosexuals face execution?'

My email to the BBC Diversity Centre (excerpt):-

Subject: Debates on diversity issues

I understand that earlier today the BBC put up a forum question asking whether 'homosexuals' should face execution.

Please could I ask if the Diversity Centre regards this as a legitimate and acceptable question for debate? ......

World Service Africa Have Your Say editor David Stead explains that the BBC thought long and hard about using this question. Reposted on BBC's The Editors
