THE CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG by Harry McAvinchey

potatoes

Jim Wells and the DUP have , once again , allowed their paranoia to climb out of that leery old sack of rotting potatoes.As Health Minister , he follows in the grand tradition of his former minister Edwin Poots  in waving that anti-gay flag. With Mr Poots  it was the plague of “gay blood” , which was perfectly fine for the UK but he didn’t want any of this genetically infected gore introduced in good old Christian” Norneverland. Gerry Adams may have had his Trojan Horse moment  but this is the kind of thing he was talking about  and his statement was made conversationally among friends and not in front of the public. He spoke of introducing an equality agenda by stealth…..because we are dealing with people like Jim Wells. There it is.

Jim Wells  soiled himself and emitted an almighty mental fart right out there at a public meeting and claimed that child-abuse was the end product of same -sex marriages .In other words he vilified an entire community of homosexual  people. His mind opened out to declare that basically homosexual people were immoral to the point of being simply sex-fiends. He really let that paranoid cat out of the bag. Well …at least he is honest .Now we have it right there in the open. It’s not as if we didn’t know already that the DUP were anti-gay.We already know  that they have a flat-earth belief system and homophobia is only one little facet of that.The DUP  in election -mode are keeping quiet about this eruption of spleen but already the ranting , evangelical “Christians” are crowding onto the airwaves to defend  their stance .They basically want to reduce Norneverland to a little anti-Europe enclosed sect of anti-Darwinists.They’d all be much happier wandering around in the desert wearing Jesus sandals.

Jim Wells is a big player in a political party that sees itself as “Kingmakers” in a potentially hung parliament within about two weeks. How any major political party, either Conservative or Labour, could fly their colours in company like this, beggars belief.He represents a party locked into a mindset completely out of step with the modern world .Someone would need to take him into a quiet room, talk to him , clean him up  and  pull his trousers back up. It is time for him to grow up.

    If the general election results in a hung parliament and the 8-10 DUP seats would give Cameron a clear majority, do you think his religious or moral beliefs would stop him from taking them under his wing?
    Hell, no. Cam would hold his nose and say the DUP’s religious outlook had no bearing on their running of Westminster and run the whole way to Bucks House to get Liz’s seal of approval.
    Politics is pragmatism, not principles!

    I wouldn’t agree with him on the child abuse thing, but I’ll be voting no in this referendum,I don’t think gays should be allowed adopt children,it’s not natural, what they do is their own business but I think it’s wrong for them to be adopting children.
    It’s a pity we don’t have a united Ireland, the unionist point of view would add to the mix,they’d be good coalition partners for FG. LOL.

      We could argue all day about what is determined “natural” or not Ireland Saoirse. We’d soon reach the conclusion that everything we see and even eat isn’t quite “natural” anymore and hasn’t been for a very long time. Take a look at how our food is processed for starters. “Natural” is always open t o debate .Even the concept of “marriage” is a fairly recent concept.It was n’t so long ago that children rearing was the sole responsibility of of women with very little input from the males.There was a strict demarcation of responsibilities .Men went out to work and women ran the household .
      There have been many social changes in society in this past hundred years and there will be many more.Science has allowed us to inseminate cattle, pigs and human beings alike, so it is possible to have children without having the traditional man/woman marital unit in just the same way it is possible to have a litter of wee piglets without the sow ever seeing the boar. I’d say two women or two men could rear children just as well as a man/woman couple.Most people have the wherewithal to cook a meal , change a nappy or read a story . We’ve all done it, so what’s the big deal?

    The saddest thing of all is that no matter how anti_gay, anti-Irish, anti-muslin or anti-Catholic they are, it does not seem to deter some people here voting for them.
    You are right Paddy the veil has slippped but we are all tarred as a result!

    “Failure to celebrate homosexuality has become a 21st-century “hate crime.”

    “It’s not a matter of whom you love, it’s how you love and what expression of love is appropriate to the relationship. What if the person whom you love is a family member? What if an uncle loves his niece or nephew? Should that love be sexualized? Of course it shouldn’t. It’s inappropriate to the nature of the relationship, so it’s expressed another way. There’s nothing wrong with two men or two women loving each other. The only problem is if we attempt to sexualize that love.”

    The above two quotes are what I believe is the truth. I found them in The National Catholic Register, U.S.A.

    Natural law is explained in the second quote and it shouldn’t be to difficult for people to understand.

    I’d have to agree with Sherdy. Camerloon wouldn’t just run to Buck House – he’d do it in soiled kecks of his own, if it pushed him over the edge (so to speak).
    (The first line of your second paragraph – and your last sentence/last paragraph raised a chuckle Paddy – But the thought of a person such as Wells being Health Minister there dampened that. The thought / idea of such a cretin holding the reins makes me pine for the (ahem) ‘wonderful’ days of Harney and Reilly here).

    As regards the impending vote down here – The T.U.T. are hard at it. Day after day after day of IONA / ‘Parents Alliance’ types / ‘Mothers-and-Fathers’ coverage and Editorials – with some weary ‘person’ (to be polite), called Breda O’Brien, weighing in almost daily with her ‘anti’ views – and delivering a story from the US regarding a family pizza business who turned down the catering for a same-sex marriage. Hyping up the hate they were supposed to have received of course. – No mention (as of yet) re: a Wedding cake for the ‘afters’.
    Much umbrage was also taken at said paper, regarding a Female Garda standing smiling with a ‘Yes’ supporter. Or rather ‘staged’ as it was headlined.
    Thankfully, a great deal more support in the ‘Comments’ Sections – The bare sign of any within the ‘Paper (but sadly still some more bigotry, ridiculous claims etc) – Nare even any sign of support within the “we iz down wit de yoof”, ‘Culture/Music/Art etc’ Dept.

    Indo & Sindo….Thankfully i haven’t had time to look/peruse – Though i’d only end up infuriated for all manner of reasons.

    Still, after all that – I believe the ‘Yes’ will win. About 60-65% so.
