Mr David Norris, as pictured above, is running for the Irish presidency (second in leadership to the Taioseach) in October 2011. It would seem, according to the opinion polls, that he is the favourite to win the election. I am absolutely disgusted to bring the following information to light. It makes me ashamed of the Irish people who would support such a monster either through ignorance or otherwise.
Just this week I was absolutely disgusted to find that Mr Norris had hosted the "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender" prom in our nationals capital city as part of Dublin Gay Pride 2011. Senator Norris said this event was important in terms of validating young gay people's experience. He then recalls how he was the only person at his school to miss the debs/prom, he said: "the first prom I ever attended was last year because this was something that [homosexual] people of my generation was excluded from".
In the 1980's after many years campaigning, Mr Norris won a supreme court hearing, to change Irish law regarding the criminalisation of homosexual acts. He claimed that the law as it stood violated his human rights; he felt that not being legally permitted, to engage in a sexual relationship, with a same gendered partner kept him from exercising his right to have a "private life"
"The first and immediate thing about the European decision is the enlargement of dignity and freedom for gay people - but I think a decision like this enhances the dignity and freedom of all the people of Ireland because it pushes us towards a more tolerant and plural society". - Norris's reaction to the European ruling, 1988.
Mr Norris is reportedly a prominent member of the Church of Ireland also. Perhaps the Church of Ireland do not read the same Bible as the rest of us?! Perhaps the Protestants are now embracing the sexual abuse of children, and in particular small boys now just like the Catholic priests? In 2002, Mr Norris was interviewed by a reporter to whom he told of his support of "pederasty".
But in terms of classic paedophilia, as practised by the Greeks for example, where it is an older man introducing a younger man or boy to adult life, I think that there can be something to be said for it.
Did you ever read anything so disgusting? A man who thinks there is something to be said for "introducing" young boys to homosexuality? The Bible teaches that homosexuals are violent criminals who "recruit" by preying on innocent children...this man is a clear example of such a beast. One who surely, has been "given up to a reprobate mind".
This is the link for David Norris's presidential election website, where is posts his effeminate "twitters" and asks for support from the Irish people. The worrying thing is, my husband and I feel, that the public may vote for him, simply because they wish to distance themselves from the Catholic church and/or because there is a huge social pressure to "keep up with the times". Brian will not be voting to elect David Norris. I support my husbands vote!
