Pro-gay rights above all else

In the light of all the fuss surrounding the selection, or non-selection, of the former mayor of Antrim as a UUP/Tory candidate, do UUP voters now realise what joining with the Tories means?

It means that a candidate's views on homosexuality are the only thing that matters - not his ability, his intelligence, his political stance on anything else; solely that he, or she, must follow the pro-gay agenda or else not be allowed to go forward. It seems we are becoming less and less of a true democracy by the day. Do UUP voters not see this?
