Mr Poots has only a passing acquaintance with the notion of acting on scientific evidence. He is, after all, a young-earth creationist.
He would have to be dragged kicking and screaming before making this change. I expect this to disappear into the depths of Stormont.
It would be far better to find someone from the scientific community with no religious axe to grind to represent this properly, and demonstrate the noticeable risks involved in allowing gay men to donate blood.
By letting some religious idiot rant on, it just gives ammunition to the other lefties that support this completely irresponsible idea.
