Gay activists are livid over N. Ireland MP Iris Robinson’s recent comments on “turning” gays around. Said Robinson:
I have a very lovely psychiatrist who works with me in my offices and his Christian background is that he tries to help homosexuals – trying to turn away from what they are engaged in.
I’m happy to put any homosexual in touch with this gentleman and I have met people who have turned around and become heterosexuals.
The homos aren’t having it, of course, and are calling bullshit on Robinson’s reparative theories. Education minister CatrÃona Ruane, meanwhile, took a more measured approach by “reminding” Robinson of her duties: “I think it is really important that politicians play a leadership role and that leadership role should be not to say anything that could possibly inflame the situation or cause further distress.”
