    I can’t wait for the coming out party.

    This from a man who has made millions by selling tobacco to the addicted. Where are the lawsuits for cancer care?

    He probably is apoligizing for threatening to shoot himself. Now, if he had said he would shoot someone else, well, that’s another matter entirely!

  4. So when did his son come out then?
    There’s got to be a self-serving rationale for this 180 degree u-turn somewhere…

    Perhaps Horacio Cartes should readdress the balance by bringing Paraguay in line with Argentina and Uruguay by introducing marriage equality.

  6. Erm,Dad. I got something to tell you….

    NOT a very diplomatic start to the career of a WORLD LEADER! I think he needs to learn some manners.

    Clearing the deck to make room for the next gaffe no doubt.

  9. Oh, get over it you silly buffon. Obviously the baccy has got to your marbles.

  10. I think he should still shoot himself

  11. Apology not accepted.

  12. Old homophobes die hard – just ask most of the British Tory Party ….

  13. Hell, if I’d been standing there when he made that statement, I’d have blown his balls off, myself, just to make sure the job was done right.

  14. …well he better make sure he treats him badly and brainwashes him into believing homosexuality is a terrible sin…CRETIN.
