Smoking healthier than gay marriage
Some unbelievably homophobic quotes from Jim Wallace, head of the Australian Christian Lobby, during a debate at the University of Tasmania:
I think we’re going to owe smokers a big apology when the homosexual community’s own statistics for its health - which it presents when it wants more money for health - are that is has higher rates of drug-taking, of suicide, it has the life of a male reduced by up to 20 years.
But what I’m saying is we need to be aware that the homosexual lifestyle carries these problems and … normalising the lifestyle by the attribution of marriage, for instance, has to be considered in what it does encouraging people into it.
We have to accept the unfortunate levels of suicide, the unfortunate levels of excessive drug use (are) because of the nature of the lifestyle.
Only because “the nature of the lifestyle” includes harassment from homophobic bigots like you.
Australia - you are supposed to be relatively free of insane, hateful religious fundamentalists. Why are your universities even giving this man a political voice?
