Quote# 40764

Iris Robinson last night reiterated her controversial comments on homosexuality — as Sinn Fein demanded her resignation as chair of the Assembly's Health Committee.

The DUP MP and MLA, who is under investigation by police, said she had no regrets about describing homosexuality as an "abom- ination" and saying gays needed psychiatric help.

A huge row erupted last week after Mrs Robinson made the remarks in the wake of a homophobic attack.

The born again First Lady said she had a right to express her view and claimed there was a "witch hunt" against Christians.

"I am defending the word of God. I think at the moment there is a witch hunt to kerb or actually stop or prevent Christians speaking out and I make no apology for what I said because it's the word of God. But at the same time I was very careful in saying that I have nothing against any homosexual. I love them; that is what the Lord tells me, to love the sinner and not the sin. And just as a murderer can be redeemed by the blood of Christ so can a homosexual," she told the BBC.

A witch hunt for Christians? What a paranoid bitch.

...to love the sinner and not the sin.

Let me know when you start.

"... claimed there was a /"witch hunt"/ against Christians."

Irony! Bitch.

It's not a witch hunt, we really just want idiots to keep their views to themselves.

I hate to break it to Iris Robinson, but if there's a witch hunt against Christianity anywhere in the world, it's not in North Ireland. There, the Christians hunt each other, so they don't need anyone else to do it for them.

It's not a witch hunt, we really just want idiots to tell us their ignorant views, so we can keep an eye on what those unstable morons are doing. And if they get get publicly berated for it, just call it 'tough love'.

aaa

That's what we need, more instability in north Ireland.

Laugh about it, shout about it

Every way you look at this you lose.

The world has enough issues; valid issues that need to be solved. Your obsession with people who are different than you borders on insanity.

"witch-hunt"? karma's a bitch, huh?

Allegory for Jesus

Homophobia and a persecution complex, all from the top of the Irish Government. At least she admits that homosexuality is not worse than the other sins, and focusing on "love" rather than hatred for the last few sentences. But still, comparing homosexuality to murder? Insisting that Christians have a right to scream about people that their magical book says are offensive to their imaginary friend? Sheeesh...

The DUP MP and MLA, who is under investigation by police, said she had no regrets about describing eating shellfish as an "abomination" and saying shrimp-eaters needed psychiatric help.

"I am defending the word of God. I think at the moment there is a witch hunt to kerb or actually stop or prevent Christians speaking out and I make no apology for what I said because it's the word of God. But at the same time I was very careful in saying that I have nothing against any shrimp-eater. I love them; that is what the Lord tells me, to love the sinner and not the sin.
