We have no policy against such links, and I very much doubt there is a
consensus for such a policy, so why shouldn't someone put such a link
on the main page? You can't expect people to act differently in order
to accommodate the views of a certain group unless there is an actual
policy (or, at least, consensus for one, depending on your definition
of "policy") telling them to.
