The Disgusting Homophobia of Stephen Harper's Filthy Cons
Stephen Harper has always been a stealthy but vicious enemy of the LGBT community.
He has voted against every bill or measure designed to protect their human rights.
He believes that being gay is just a choice.
And now I see one of his candidates is following in his master's ghastly footsteps.
And advocating the torture of gay children.
A Conservative candidate in suburban Toronto is defending therapies that attempt to turn gays straight, having penned an editorial that referred to homosexuality as "unnatural behaviour" and heterosexuals as "normal."
Jagdish Grewal, running in Mississauga-Malton, wrote an editorial in the Punjabi Post earlier this year entitled, "Is it wrong for a homosexual to become a normal person?"
Quoting quacks to back up his grotesque bigoted beliefs, while disregarding the advice of the Canadian Pediatric Society.
Grewal's editorial does not address professional criticism of so-called reparative or conversion therapies. The Canadian Pediatric Society's position on adolescent sexual orientation states that such treatments "should not be provided because they do not work and have the potential to heighten guilt and anxiety."
Even his bigotry could KILL gay kids. Even though he is a Sikh and should know all about bigotry.
But then of course he isn't the only Con supporting anti-gay bigotry. So is this foul group in Ontario who are fighting the province's new and eminently reasonable sex education curriculum...
Which the Cons are stealthily supporting for crass political purposes.
On the federal election trail, Islamophobia keeps thrusting the niqab onto the nightly news. In other news: Homophobia-tinged protests over sex-education are sexing up the election in key federal ridings, allowing Conservative candidates to screw (metaphorically and politically) their Liberal rivals.
The NDP is paying a price for its principled defence of the niqab in Quebec, where the face covering remains especially unpopular. And federal Liberals across Ontario are being crucified for the supposed sins of their provincial Liberal cousins, who dared to update a two-decade-old sex education curriculum with present-day social (and legal) realities about homosexuality (and sexuality).
And by so doing are supporting the barbaric cultural practices they claim to be against. Which couldn't be more ironic.
Oddly for anti-sex-ed Muslim parents, their allies in intolerance of gays are in some cases Conservatives stumping on the campaign trail by stirring up mistrust of Muslims who wear the niqab (which tends to drag down all Muslims).
But do make it clear that Con values are nothing but HATE.
Jagdish Grewal is an ignorant scumbag who would torture gay kids, and should be fired immediately.
And Stephen Harper is a low life bigot who must be defeated if our Canada is to live...
UPDATE: The Cons dump Jagadish Grewal.
But that doesn't change anything for me, because as I showed you in that video he was only saying what Stephen Harper thinks.
In almost ten years in power he has spent almost a billion dollars promoting himself. But not ONE dollar to run ads against homophobia or the bullying of LGBT kids in our schools. Even as hundreds committed suicide.
I could have been one of them myself, if I didn't have a fighting spirit nobody could break.
So please defeat that vicious bully.
Before he kills more children...
