How do these bigots get into high office so frequently? An Irish official in charge of the country’s health care cheerfully made some outrageous accusations on the air.
Homosexuality is a mental illness, at least according to the head of Northern Ireland’s health committee. Iris Robinson MP, who, with impeccable timing, put forth her views on a radio show while responding to the news that a local man had been badly beaten in a homophobic attack.
After apparently branding homosexuality as “disgusting, loathsome, nauseating, wicked and vile” she went on to recommend that “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”.
Weird. It’s a common attitude among clueless twits, but how can anyone acquire even a modicum of education and still cling to such hateful ideas?
