Benedict Cumberbatch would fight anti-gay extremists 'to the death' - People - News - The Independent

Benedict Cumberbatch says that he would defend his belief in gay rights to the very end.

The actor currently stars in The Imitation Game as persecuted gay mathematician Alan Turing, who broke the Enigma code used by the Nazis during World War II.

In an interview with Out magazine, Cumberbatch said: “People are being beheaded in countries right now because of their beliefs or sexual orientations”, going to describe the beheadings as “medieval” and “terrifying”.

He added that he’d “take up arms against someone who was telling me I had to believe in what they believed or they would kill me.

“I would fight them. I would fight them to the death.”

Cumberbatch said that it isn’t possible to have “unilateral tolerance”.

“You have to have a point where you go, ‘Well, religious fundamentalism is wrong’ ” he said.
