Meanwhile, Anglican vicar uses police to intimidate a blogger...

...who exposed his apparent sympathy for some Holocaust deniers and other unwholesome personages.

Read more about it here and here.

Joseph Weissman:
I am the blogger at the centre of Sizergate, having had an unwelcome visit from the police at 10am on a Sunday morning when I was still in my pyjamas. You can read my story on the Index on Censorship or on BBC News.
And the original posting is here.

The question, though, is whether Sizer knew about the HD activities of some of the people he quoted. Sizer himself claims that personally he speaks out against denial. He even writes:
Thankfully it is a crime in some countries to deny the Holocaust. It is a shame that it is not yet a crime to deny the Palestinian Nakba, as Moore does.
and
Holocaust denial has no place what so ever in contemporary political, social or religious discourse.
I guess it's a "sleep with dogs, wake up with fleas" situation.
