The vanguard of the revolution

/ maoists / reformed /

This was too precious not to post. Below is a picture of Durao Barroso (center, looking down) back in the day (1975), when he was a member of the Maoist MRPP. (Never trust a Stalinist in whatever guise or form, I tell you...)

Picture from the Athens daily Eleftherotypia, taken from the Portugese Visao.

Incidentally Buttiglione can find solace in the Orthodox Church of Greece's Archbishop Christodoulos'good words: he describes him as a "good christian" who was perfectly justified in regarding homosexuality as "a sin before God, although not a criminal offense".

BTW, John Laughland was busy outing other ex-communist members of the commission a month ago...
