This Parliamentary candidate wants to re-criminalise homosexuality and ban pride

An independent Parliamentary candidate has pledged to ban pride marches and jail LGBT people.

Susan Anne White, who is standing in West Tyrone in Northern Ireland, has unveiled her “biblically correct” manifesto.

The candidate pledges to, among other things: “Oppose the LGBT agenda, whilst showing compassion to those who struggle with gender confusion.

“Oppose the redefinition of marriage and uphold Biblical man/woman marriage

“Ban gay pride parades and recriminalise homosexuality

“Stop the State funding of LGBT organisations.”

She also pledges to “oppose the Islamification of British culture”, “make adultery a punishable offence” and “restore corporal punishment to schools”.

The candidate told the Belfast Telegraph: “It is society that has moved. Not so far in the past, most people would have shared my views.

“My views only seem extreme because society has moved away from God’s principles.”

Ms White, who has been branded ‘UKIP on steroids’, added: “I believe in a God who can work miracles but, realistically speaking, I don’t think I will win.

“My concern is not so much with winning, it is with trying, and to try is not to fail.

“In standing I have a wider platform than I would if I did not stand, and many people will hear the Biblical message and principles.”

Earlier today, it was revealed that UKIP candidate Geoff Caton has previously posted anti-gay remarks to Facebook, writing: posted homophobic remarks on Facebook, claiming “being an arse bandit [is] nothing to be proud of”.
