    So he followed the Vatican propaganda line, rather than the presumably slightly less offensive party line.

    If only senior Catholic clergy in the UK and France would resign rather than follow their particularly offensive party whip from the Vatican.

      If only more of our own MPs would resign, Nadine Dorries, Peter Bone et al.

    One good step you have taken…now continue and find some rock hole…crawl in and wait to die…that’s about the best you deserve.

  3. ““My focus is now on directing my time and energy to representing the people of South Australia.””

    According to the DailyMail his time in the next few days is going to be spent infleuncing young Tories in the UK!


    He didn’t resign, he was sacked.

      Well I expect young conservatives are still as offensive and socially inept as they always were, so he will feel right at home.

      1. Cardinal Capone 19 Sep 2012, 4:47pm

        I’ve never heard young labour or young liberals be offensive about minorities, but it seems to be almost compulsory in the young conservatives. I wonder why that is. Someone should do a study.

  4. I think they should just sack all the Governments around the world and start again. Maybe with a more modern crowd with no outdated claptrap to hold them back.

  5. Doubtless he’ll be found with some under-age boy’s wang in his hand in the not-too-distant future.

    1. Cardinal Capone 19 Sep 2012, 4:27pm

      No, according to his wife, he’s in love with himself. See video link below.

  6. Not that decent a bloke to be making those kinds of comments.

    And if you were true to your word about representing the people of South Australia, then you would have voted in favour of equal marriage!

  7. Bye, Bye :-)

  8. Its about public decency 19 Sep 2012, 4:19pm

    “There are even some creepy people out there, who say that it’s ok to have consensual sexual relations between humans and animals. Will that be a future step?”

    Last time i checked animals CAN’T give consent – which is why its a crime.

    Here’s a comedy take on his comments:

    1. Cardinal Capone 19 Sep 2012, 4:26pm

      ” if gay marriage is legalised, women’s ovaries will evaporate”, lol.

    Attractive men… Why beautiful men are always so homophobic? Even beautiful gay men (like Rupert Everett).

    1. Paddyswurds 19 Sep 2012, 5:58pm

      ….Greek dude
      you are verging being as big an idiot as either men….Grow up and maybe pay some taxes in Greece instead of having your country sponging off the world…..

  11. But you cannot have consensual sex with an animal… an animal cannot consent!


    1. Zoophilia is a type of paraphilia. People who have it feel sexually attracted to animals. These people are called zoophiles. A separate term, bestiality, refers to human/animal sexual activity. See Zoosexuality. Source –

  13. Frankly I’m sick of people using the slippery slope argument, but comparing gay marriage to another situation that’s not necessarily bad either -and don’t worry, I mean polygamy not bestiality! It might not be for everyone, but I see no reason for it to be considered wrong if everyone involved is happy with it.

    1. That There Other David 19 Sep 2012, 10:53pm

      This particular slippery slope takes it to a new level of utter nonsense. These anti-equality people really do know how to make themselves look ridiculous. It’s a shame they can’t see it themselves.

  14. Paddyswurds 19 Sep 2012, 5:55pm

    There are animals in Australia that can give consent to sex with Humans?…I knew there were some pretty weird animals in Oz but this is a new one.. Strange how these xtian types are all for bestiality or incest…….The man is an idiot and shouldn’t be allowed on a sewer cleaning gang never mind making laws in Government…..

    What do you expect in a country where there are more sheep than people.

    1. Paddyswurds 20 Sep 2012, 12:52pm

      Thats new Zealand. Australia has about 23 million people and about 11 million sheep. NZ on the other hand has about 4.3 million people and 45 million sheep..

  16. To this piece of filth I offer the curse of King Lear. As an Australian I am disgusted by this maggots comment.
