The Ulster Unionist Party is the gift that keeps on giving! Get this nonsense;
ULSTER Unionist leader Mike Nesbitt is to meet one of his councillors who compared homosexuality to “a disease”. Magherafelt UUP councillor Jackie Crawford made the comment after a council meeting on Tuesday night where two DUP councillors strongly condemned homosexuality, describing it as “an abomination”. The meeting was discussing a Sinn Fein motion calling for gay marriage, which was passed by 10 votes to five. It was supported by nationalists but opposed by unionists. Cllr Crawford told the Irish News after the event: “I’m not against gays, it’s a pity for them. “It’s a pity they have that disease and they can’t help it. It’s the same as you being born with a disability. They can’t help what they are. “I know gay people and they are nice people and not bad people but they should not be getting married.”
Right, let’s sort it out, shall we?
First off, is gay marriage the pressing issue for this Council? Really? I would have though lack of jobs, a run down town centre and high rates would have registered before “gay marriage”. The utter banality of local Government.
Second, homosexuality is patently NOT a disease. The Councillor concerned chose his words badly but then again he is a Councillor so perhaps that explains it!
Third, what about the DUP Councillors who reckon gayness “an abomination”? No media focus on them. Oh my, our Pravda media playing up to Peter and Marty, again?
Lastly, I notice this was a Sinn Fein motion. Once again we witness THEIR total detachment from reality and their self serving selection of topics to pursue even as the country goes down the drain!
