Caution needed in condemnation

Published 30/04/2015

Once again, the proponents of gay rights have gone into overdrive at the thought of anyone daring to say a word against them.

Jim Wells apologised very quickly after realising what he had said (and later resigned), but this does not satisfy the gay rights supporters. Political leaders fall over themselves to promote LGBT rights, as they are afraid to say anything which would bring the wrath of this group upon them.

And, while Jim Wells accepted that he should not have said what he did, it may be wise to be cautious in condemnation, as cases are coming to light in the US of people brought up in gay, or lesbian, households who are now revealing how damaged they have been by their experience.
