    Numerous DUP officials have been accused of homophobia, most recently Ian Paisley Jnr.In May he told a magazine: “I am pretty repulsed by gay and lesbianism. I think it is wrong. I think that those people harm themselves and – without caring about it – harm society.”That doesn’t mean to say that I hate them. I mean, I hate what they do.”If you ask me, sounds like incitement to hatred, the bigotry of these morons is unparalleled.If morons like the Paisley’s et al are repulsed by who we are and who refuse to abide by EU laws, then let them face prosecution to the fullest extent of the law. They’re no better than the equally bigoted scumbags in the U.S. Did Jesus Christ ever find us repulsive, among other things? I think not!

    I find the argument of “the objection is that Christians could be forced to take part in things which they morally find that they can’t” such a load of crap.By the same logic, a racist should be allowed to refuse a black person on the grounds of conscience. And if this is a so called “christian” issue, then why do they allow divorcees to get a room together, or people out of wedlock, or people who have eaten shellfish for that matter?Its just a stupid excuse to be a small minded bigot, and then blame it on god. Lets hope the EU put this loud-mouthed windbag in his pace.

    This should be all very interesting to watch because in reality they’ve got no f**king choice.No doubt when the new laws are forced on them, Paisley can turn to his coven and tell them he did all he could to prevent this vile perversion.I hope this item doesn’t get much media coverage – he’s nothing more than a self-promoting media whore looking to get his name in the papers

  4. It’s a sad day when a fine country is ruled by a murderer who supports gay rights and a bigot who doesn’t.
