Roger Gale Makes Same Sex Marriage a local Issue
I generally avoid national political issues on this blog, but one way or another Roger Gale has made the same sex marriage issue a Thanet issue.
Roger is very much seen as a major Thanet spokesman and whether his comments in parliament were due to a poorly thought out and presented speech or he really does equate homosexuality to incest is immaterial to me.
I guess most of the blog readers will have heard and seen him on the news today and regardless of their views on same sex marriage will be unhappy about one of our local MPs appearing to have joined the lunatic fringe of those who have recently been using unreasonable arguments to try and swing parliaments vote on this one.
I should make it quite clear that I find people accusing those against same sex marriage because of their religious beliefs as reprehensible as those equating homosexuality to incest, or any other illegal sexual activity.
