Robinson: Gays Aren’t Ill, Just Sinners

Iris Robinson needs to learn to shut her mouth. The N. Ireland politician raised eyebrows last month when she came out against the gays. Robinson has since become the butt of many-a-joke – as well as a campaign to unseat her – and, quite frankly, she’s pissed. No, not because people are mad at her, but because they’re twisting her words, she claims:

Stormont Health committee chair Iris Robinson last night accused her political rivals of twisting her comments on homosexuality and denied she believed it was a mental disorder.

Mrs Robinson said: “People have attempted to suggest that I indicated that homosexuality was a mental health issue. Nothing could be further from the truth. What I did say was homosexuality, like all sin, is an abomination.

Because that’s much better. Meanwhile, Robinson still thinks psychiatric counseling can help set us straight:

Will the minister agree with me that there are some people who are in their teenage years sexually confused and that they could do with help in terms of practitioners assessing them with talking therapies to help them realize exactly what they are, whether they are heterosexual or homosexual?”

Sheesh, can’t these kids find out the old fashioned way: experiementation. It’s worked for generations – and is way more fun.
