Affair exposes Iris's sickening hypocrisy

Iris Robinson's recent exposure as an adulteress also exposes her sickening hypocrisy.

On June 18, 2009 in the House of Commons she said, "There can be no viler act, apart from homosexuality and sodomy, than sexually abusing innocent children." She attempted to disguise her naked homophobia as a Christian value when she added "I cannot leave my Christian values hanging at the door when I go into politics."

It is quite clear that not only did Mrs Robinson leave her Christian values at the bedroom door when she had extra-marital heterosexual relations with a teenage boy, but forgot that some young men, over the age of consent, are still innocent children in many ways.

Now that she has expressed remorse for her adultery she should 'come out' and sincerely apologise to the monogamous and loving homosexual people in Northern Ireland who do not judge her for the abomination of adultery.

Furthermore, no truly Christian homosexual individual in Northern Ireland will publicly suggest she is confused about her sexual desires and recommend she engage in counselling - or that she is a vile woman whose sexual activities repulse them.
