Homophobia’s a family affair for Northern Ireland’s power couple, Iris and Peter Robinson!
MP Iris Robinson drew our ire earlier this year when she described gay folk as sick sinners who should be cured of our queer ways.
Despite very public outrage, Robinson stuck by her remarks – and so is her husband, First Minister Peter Robinson. His wife doesn’t deserve any blame, he says, because God agrees:
It wasnâ€™t Iris Robinson who determined that homosexuality was an abomination, it was the Almighty.
This is the Scriptures and it is a strange world indeed where somebody on the one hand talks about equality, but wonâ€™t allow Christians to have the equality, the right to speak, the right to express their views.
You know what we call that? Bollocks.
