  1. This all sounds very much like a put up job planned by the Christian legal centre. I wonder who’ll be representing her, probably what’s her name Angela Michelano or something or other……

    Aw boo hoo.

    The poor ickle chwistian is being discwiminated against.


    A political party is basically a club of like minded individuals.

    A bit like a religion.

    You know.. Those clubs discriminate against gays because gays do not adhere to that clubs rules.

    Same with political clubs my dear.


  3. ““It’s discriminatory against Christians. It’s a typical symptom of prejudice, blatant prejudice.”

    Anyone else almost wetting themselves with laughter here…?

    Really… her beliefs that gay couples shouldn’t get married (something that wasn’t religious until it was hijacked for religious purposes) aren’t “a typical symptom of prejudice…”

  4. Why the hell would you bring FAITH in to politics? This isn’t the kingdom of god, this is a physical realm of real people. She needs to stop concentrating on getting on her knees for god and start concentrating on equal rights and a better socieity!

      If we didn’t have state religion, it would be a lot harder for them to interfere, that’s why France is having an easier time pushing it through in spite of the Catholic cult’s hierarchy trying to put it’s oar in. State religion is a curse and irrelevant in a modern 21st democracy.

    Is she wearing those glasses that come with a nose or is that her real nose…. What a proboscis…!
    Is it just me or are all the women who oppose Gay rights really really ugly….?

      Grow up. You sound like a Young Conservative.

      1. Paddyswurds 19 Sep 2012, 8:42pm

        Lol.. idiot!

    2. Don’t be silly, the novelty Groucho Marx glasses and nose set always comes with a black cat fur moustache attached , it’s obvious she hasn’t got the moustache.

      1. Paddyswurds 19 Sep 2012, 11:39pm

        .LMAO….. sorry I didn’t notice but then it is a hard to see anything else beyond that proboscis….lol.

    “Blatant prejudice”, Ms. Summers? Really? I think the shoe is on the other foot, dear. Christians can ridicule, spread lies and denigrate LGBT people and they don’t call it prejudice, yet when we and our straight supporters bash back, then we’re the ones discriminating. A bit rich since nobody is forbidding her to believe what she wants or worship the way she wants. She signed a pledge with the Green Party to uphold its policy and has NOTHING to do with religion. Stupid twat!

  7. Cardinal Capone 19 Sep 2012, 7:11pm

    She’s saying her refusal to support party policy which resulted in her expulsion is prejudice? Surely the same would happen in any political party.

    But anyway, a refusal to tolerate prejudice is not in itself prejudice simply because the perpetrator claims it is due to a religious belief.

    There’s that martyrdom complex they always fall back on again. Why do Christians have to act so damn ridiculously whenever someone challenges their blatant bigotry? It’s not like people are throwing you in prison or giving you electric shock therapy to correct you, is it Ms Summers?

  9. Hopefully, she will go and live in Ecuador.

    1. That There Other David 20 Sep 2012, 10:13am

      Unlikely. They already have legally-equivalent Civil Unions, equality for LGBTs is written into their constitution, and are widely expected to introduce marriage equality in the near future.

      1. There will soon be nowhere they can bang their discriminatory drum.

  10. o shock horror someone who is discriminating is crying discrimination. Now she knows how it feels!

  11. Cardinal Capone 21 Sep 2012, 7:18pm

    No doubt they would argue that a ‘Christian’ boss who sacks a gay worker for being gay is the victim of discrimination if he gets sued for it.

  12. “Religious bigots come in many different shapes and forms — depending on whose divine authority they presume to possess — but a common ideology that binds them across the world is stupidity.”

    She may have a point.

    If the Green Party could once have been headed by David Icke who declared himself to be “a son of God”, why should she not claim to follow every reported word of someone who, two millennia previously, made a similar claim of divine ancestry?

    Of course, she’d have to overlook inconvenient texts such as Matthew 7, verses 1 to 5
