The counsel of Councillor Pritchard

Fundies in America are not the only ones who think homosexuality is some sort of demon, it seems.

“In Wales,” says the BBC website, “a councillor has been disqualified for 12 months after referring to homosexuality as a ‘notorious disability’.”

Bill Pritchard, a former town councillor in Barmouth in Gwynedd, wrote to a minister in the Welsh Assembly Government, referring to two men involved in a local development who were in a relationship.

He described homosexuality as “a demon which can be driven out”.

This prat is quoted as saying, “It is definitely a disability rather than a sin. I respect them [gays] as someone who is struggling with a disability as I would with someone in a wheelchair.”

Gays can do without your caring concern, Mr Pritchard, thank you, no matter how well meaning you believe yourself to be.
