    1. does it???

  1. We need to protect LGBT children and the children of LGBT parents from Loren Rudd.

  2. another catholic lunatic, or is that a catholunatic?

    1. Sacre bleu 14 Jul 2013, 1:18pm

      Isn’t Catholic lunatic a tautology?

    2. She said at the time: “I call them the global gay Gestapo: it is the lobbying movement that is brainwashing people, particularly the young in the community that this [homosexuality] is an optional extra in life.”

      And she wanted to be a nun? Well she should know all about “a movement that is brainwashing people, particularly the young in the community “.

    Another religious bigot… They seem to be on the rise in Australia.

    I would like her to watch this and say she’s right.

    1. I sent this around to my contacts….very moving

  5. Non news reported originally from a Murdoch publication. Pink News letting other “journalists” do the work for them, again.
    You poms should have a fair idea of how respected and impartial Rupert Murdoch’s tabloids are and how they operate. It’s cost you enough in Government Enquiries.

    1. Nick Davis 14 Jul 2013, 1:55pm

      Sorry mean’t to tick your entry.

  6. Protecting the children is precisely why Australia needs same-sex marriage. Gay families with children are currently not protected.

  7. Stupid bitch should keep her nose out of politics and maybe concentrate on sorting her dreadful fashion sense out. Get a stylist you witch.

  8. Helen Wilson 14 Jul 2013, 12:18pm

    She is a dried up old prude who is obviously very bitter a former partner turned out to be gay!

    She sounds a right psycho who has not gotten over being dumped!

  9. Silly cow should keep her nose out of politics and concentrate on her dreadful dress sense. Get a stylist you old witch.

    1. soapbubblequeen 14 Jul 2013, 8:24pm

      I know!! Have you ever seen the like of her?! She makes grey positively unfashionable! Vile old cow.

  10. Think it’s time to protect children from harmful Christian brainwashing which teaches hatred of men and women for loving someone of their own gender

  11. Loren Rudd comes across as a very sad, bitter woman, full of hate and having lived life getting nun. Hardly surprising – all that bile would make men run a mile!

    1. .....Paddyswurds 14 Jul 2013, 11:22pm

      Do you know why nuns go around in twos. One nun goes along to see that the other nun gets none.

  12. She is a nobody, just someone’s sister!

  13. St Sebastian 14 Jul 2013, 12:41pm

    Too bad she didn’t become a Nun and take a vow of silence.

  14. Christopher in Canada 14 Jul 2013, 12:44pm

    There should be a law protecting people from religion. It is the true master of propaganda that spins something negative into a positive.

  15. We need to protect people from this b¡tch’s monstrous views.
    May she rot in hell!

  16. .....Paddyswurds 14 Jul 2013, 12:56pm

    ” I even dated one once, not knowing he was homosexual.”… If I didn’t know better, I would have serious doubts as to whether he was gay before the date. There is nothing worse in the entire universe than a woman scorned and even worse when that woman is, to put it kindly, “homely ” as they say in America. This evil hearted woman should crawl back into the nunnery she escaped from and stay out of peoples business and more importantly bedrooms. What is it with these religiotards that they have to fantasise about our sex lives all the time…

    1. St Sebastian 14 Jul 2013, 1:23pm

      ” I even dated one once, not knowing he was homosexual.”

      Says a lot about her judgement and social perception.

      1. Not to mention HIS judgment and social perception!

  17. Sacre bleu 14 Jul 2013, 1:07pm

    Isn’t it ironic that Ms Rudd thinks “that there should be a law protecting children from the propaganda of homosexuality as normal” at a time when Australia has a Royal Commission into child abuse of which the Catholic Church was a substantial perpetrator, denier & covered up.

    “They’re trying to & build their family life and structure in Russia people in the West don’t seem to understand our family life & structures are breaking down.”

    What??? Family life in Russia is in a terrible state, hardly a model of family life & parenthood given the high incidence of alcoholism, abandoned mothers & children severely addicted to hard & dangerous drugs like Krokadil (an extremely dangerous & cheap form of ice).

    “I guess the bottom line, if there’s one thing I can say that can’t be challenged, it’s that society needs to protect its children as best they can,” she said .. & I say we should rather be protecting our children from widespread & documented damage by the church.

  18. bobbleobble 14 Jul 2013, 1:44pm

    Your brother/sister still not putting out for you Keith?

  19. Sheer ignorance.
    Completely unaccountable for a 1st century modern nation

  20. “Last year she rejoined the Labor Party, but she now says her brother’s change of heart on same-sex marriage means she is unlikely to help with their election campaign.”

    At which Labor heaves a huge sigh of relief. I can’t imagine that anyone would consider this woman an asset.

  21. This poor woman is clearly unwell, so I wish people would leave her alone to get the treatment she needs instead of exacerbating her condition by giving her this type of attention.

    The more she believes she is right (and the more people give her attention), the more likely she is to fail to recognise her need for treatment.

  22. Educator of Keith 14 Jul 2013, 3:24pm

    The answer is yes so you don’t need to lie awake at night wondering anymore.. Glad to be of help x

    1. Well when the Official Homosexual Position on this is published let me know. Or maybe you would think for a moment that there is no official position on this nor any official group to take one.

      Will you find heterosexuals with that position? Yes. Will you find gay people with that position? Yes. Will you find ME with that position? No. Nor does my son AFAIK. He’s not gay though.

      Seriously your ‘question’ is just manure. Suitable for enriching your prejudices and making those flowers of distaste grow but it has no relevance whatever to the current world in which I live.

  23. Where oh where is the education? This woman clearly thinks people aren’t born gay and Teh Gay is a learned behaviour or a result or upbringing or whatever. Total rubbish.

    Doesn’t she realise there are kids 3, 4 years old who will be gay? Don’t they deserve to learn about themselves?

    When I was in school the only education I got about myself was that “gay” was used to describe anything that was bad or unwanted and the teachers seemed to agree or didn’t care. That did wonders for my self-esteem !

    People like this obviously still see The Gay’s as an “alternative lifestyle” and she probably doesn’t realize her local butcher or post man is gay because they don’t adhere to her stereotypical views of what it means to be gay

  24. ” I even dated one once…”

    He had a lucky escape — Jeeezzzz!!!

    1. Australia should pass a law protecting children from her!

  25. white squirrel 14 Jul 2013, 4:09pm

    given that she thinks gay is a lifestyle choice – it makes you wonder if she blames herself for making him ‘turn’ gay

    1. I hope you too will exercise EXTREME self-control. We definitely don’t want you to reproduce.

      1. JackAlison 14 Jul 2013, 4:58pm

        lol…pink news readers have been “keithed” AGAIN!!!!
        lol…cant live with him and he CANT LIVE WITHOUT HIS DAILY DOES OF P.N.
        Im actually quite glad because subliminally Keith is receiveing an education
        although on the end of someones cock would be more forceful and direct intervention I think but who would do it?

    2. That There Other David 14 Jul 2013, 4:52pm


    3. clearly you have penchant for pseudo philosophy, i bet you even ticked off Dr. in the title section when filling out tesco clubcard application.

  26. Helge Vladimir Tiller 14 Jul 2013, 4:17pm

    I will learn YOU ALL a Norwegian word. ——:TULL ; means nonsense.

    Her name should be : Tull Nonsense.

    1. Helge Vladimir Tiller 14 Jul 2013, 4:21pm

      Got so angry, used learn instead of teach. That is Tull’s fault !

  27. Half of me wants to burn her at the stake as a witch; half of me wants to laugh her off the stage. ALL of me wonders why we would give her airtime.

  28. Does “protecting children” involve the denial of the reality of the human condition rather than a mature acceptance? And what about the protection of LGBT children who this lady would like to deny acceptance?

  29. That There Other David 14 Jul 2013, 4:51pm

    There’s a reason why she’s a bitter ex-nun with a failed relationship and her brother is Prime Minister of Australia.

    Can’t quite think what it might be, but there’s definitely one ;-)

  30. JackAlison 14 Jul 2013, 5:06pm

    dont you have work to do
    lika day job?….lol
    GIVIT a rest man
    its like ur just obsessed with gay people….n gay sex….and the amount of times uve mentioned PAEDOPHILIA…mmmmm!? im wondering whether you should be reported to the authrorities cause ur obviously 1 helluva a sick puppy.

  31. Vile.

    Why do these people exist?

  32. She has to read the bible. There it says women have to shut up in public. What a hypocrite.

  33. ‘…Objective and polite discourse is clearly not an option…’

    we would rather prefer intelligent discourse based on science and facts then the polite one full of stereotypes and pseudo moralising. deluded people like you and that rudd woman are exceptionally good at the latter one

    1. lets start with the definition of your attitude


      is the state of mind of a bigot: someone who, as a result of their prejudices, treats other people with hatred, contempt, or intolerance on the basis of a person’s ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status, or other characteristics.
      Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. described bigotry in the following quotation: “The mind of a bigot is like the pupil of the eye; the more light you pour upon it, the more it will contract.”[1]

  34. white squirrel 14 Jul 2013, 6:36pm

    Keith sums his position well towards the end:

    “I am struggling to think”

    “Homosexual sex, even when monogamous, cannot be mad safe[sic] “.

    the same is just as true of hetrosexual sexual activity

    1. Christopher in Canada 14 Jul 2013, 9:05pm

      Why do you post lies? Are you that stupid? Or do you think that idiots somewhere would believe you, and then make you their leader? I can assure you, the idiot population does not frequent this site, nor any gay venue. Too much education and self-realization has taken place. You, on the other hand, exemplify what happens when education is interrupted by myth and propaganda. Too bad you’ve decided to leave your brain behind and follow a bunch of idiots.

      1. I think he’s a troll, it’s hard to believe anyone is this uniformed.

    2. Of course because when an opposite sex couple has sex it’s absolutely fine, but when a same-sex couple has sex the diseases just appear out of thin air?

  35. Helge Vladimir Tiller 14 Jul 2013, 7:13pm

    So, you favour Putin. You favour FASCISM ! I, Helge VLADIMIR Tiller, knows a thousand times better than you how the situation for LGBTQ people is in Russia ! Ignorant-extremely ignorant lady-

  36. soapbubblequeen 14 Jul 2013, 8:21pm

    She’s his sister FFS?!!! What is she being given a public platform or voice at all?! Stupid frumpy wh0re – shut up!!

  37. Christopher in Canada 14 Jul 2013, 9:10pm

    Now let;s talk about how many wives were beaten by their husbands today, and how many women were raped, and how many were tortured, and how many children were abused and beaten by parents who claim to love them, and how many were left on doorsteps of orphanages…

    Two gays fight – oh gee!! Stop the presses! It turns out they are human, after all!

    Keith, get a life. You think you are changing the world if one of us pauses to respond to your idiocy – but you’re not. We are simply pausing to respond to your idiocy… and then carrying on with our lives, in spite of you. You are powerless and moot. You might as well accept it. And before you start spouting about how you are part of some “majority”, then stop to think of why my rights are presently being enshrined in law.

    1. Peter and Hazelmary Bull come immediately to mind, an unpleasant couple of heterosexual homophobes crying that they are discriminated against because the law prevents them from discriminating against gay couples.

    2. That’s because there’s no such thing as heterophobia, love.

  38. You are either a troll or just uninformed, here’s some information you should read…

    Homosexuality is natural and has a number of benefits.

    1. You clearly don’t know the difference between an insect and an animal, what an idiot.

  39. She’s from Queensland. That state is widely viewed as ‘different’- as in ridiculous levels of political corruption, social backwardness and other pathologies…

  40. Seriously can this guy be banned? He’s not contributing to any discussion, he’s a troll who is completely uneducated and ignorant. I’m homosexual and I have never and do not intend to have sex in a bloody public toilet, you cretin. Why does this man come to this site, specifically targeted towards LGBT people, if not to spout spurious claims about knowing every action that every LGBT person has preformed and to insult and demean the users of this site by tarring every comments board with his unequivocally baseless dogma?

    1. He has been banned. He keeps changing his IP. Why does he come here? Because he’s looking for attention – ie a response. Any response. He doesn’t care. Report him and ignore him.

      1. That reply was to Jord above. Replying to keith’s comments, which will be deleted anyway, messes up the formatting, as well as ginving him exactly what he wants.

  41. .....Paddyswurds 14 Jul 2013, 11:11pm

    Helge Vladimir Tiller …….
    ….”I will learn YOU ALL a Norwegian word” …. should read . “I will teach YOU ALL a Norwegian word”. You teach I learn. Your welcome!

    1. That’s hilarious did you F-up the last part on purpose?

      You are welcome —> You’re welcome

      Condescending ass.

    2. You’re*

      If I made the decision to become a grammar nazi online I’d at least double check /my/ grammar is right first !

  42. Gay gestapo? She looks like the poster girl for the Joseph Goebbels prefect movement.

  43. Pathetic deranged woman

    If Russian lifestyle is so ‘model’ then someone deport the b!tch immediately. We can do without people like her in Australia

  44. Oh lord, give me the strength to back hand slap this bitch so hard she will be flying all the way to Jupiter!!

    The funny thing is her brother ignored her comments.

    Also mr Rudd’s numbers have reached a record high too thanks to his support of same sex marriage :)

  45. Bitter and mentally disturbed homophobic frump mumbles something or other… what else is new?

  46. Bitter and mentally disturbed homophobic frump mumbles something or other… what else is new?

  47. He probably didn’t realise he was gay until he started dating her – so, in effect we must thank her for pointing him in the right direction.

  48. Fabulous to see that not all Australians have been morally corrupted – and that someone is standing courageously speaking up for the Family, that is for “One Dad + One Mum for a child”…

    We sincerely hope that Brother will listen to Sister.

    1. One birth dad + one birth mum = ideal
      One dad + one mum = preferable
      One dad + one dad = good
      One mum + one mum = good
      One mum = good
      One dad = good
      No parents = bad

      Any parent is better than no parent. How dare you try to deny children abandoned by their so called perfect heterosexual parents a loving home; shame on you.

      No parents whatsoever = bad

      1. Interestingly enough a recent Australian study found same-sex couples are BETTER than opposite-sex couples in raising children when consider some indicators such as family cohesion.

  49. Loree and Kieth should get married. We could then have an example of what a ‘normal’ relationship should look like. LOL

  50. Ok, homosexuals protectors – what can u say about paedophiles gay couple that abused for 5 years their kid?
    Shame on u! Gays must have no right to have kids!

    1. While that is a terrible story, if you had bothered to do your research you would find that cases like this are extremely rare.

      Statistically speaking, gay men are LESS likely to be paedophiles. But then why would you let research and facts get in the way of your sensationalist scaremongering?

    2. Yeah, because one couple abusing their child means no couple’s should be ever be allowed to have children whatsoever. Millions of heterosexual parents abuse their children all the time, don’t you watch the news? Baby P? Should heterosexuals stop being allowed to have children or adopt just because a small percentage are abusers?

    3. OK “heterosexual protector” – what can you say about Fred and Rosemary West/Josef and Rosemarie Fritzl/Phillip and Nancy Garrido [etc etc]? Because, after all, one or two instances can instantly damn everyone else of the same sexuality in your view, can’t it?


  51. Нормальный человек 15 Jul 2013, 11:13am

    О, да тут одни пидары собрались ))

  52. I love to see this, it means the bigots are scared it will happen there soon and they are thrashing about.

  53. Jim middle tn 15 Jul 2013, 2:50pm

    I think that the fact she trained as nun and didnt finish that training speaks volumes .. there is something wrong here .. and for someone to favor something that crazy russian is doing adds another volume or two.. we need to continue the fight .. to protect lgbt children and the children of lgbt parents . also the protection of all of us . in the lgbt community is of the upmost importance especially
    with nut cases around and they seem to keep coming out of the woodwork

  54. LGBT is crap. Greetings from Russia

    1. Paul you’ve been brainwashed by a totalitarian tyrant dictator who is corrupt to the core. Everything you’ve been taught about LGBT people is a lie… I pity you; Russia is crap.

  55. They can’t fight the wars they start against other adults so they throw their children into the frontline to be used as a meatshield while they hurl abuse from where it is safe.

  56. Nu AND Putin, what is the link??

  57. They should deport this wildebeest to Russia then.

  58. religion, religion, religion…what a bunch of useless bull****…I’m so tired of these religious people that I really can’t even be bothered to piss on them if they are on fire.
