He’s a “crusader for human freedoms”. Everyone be cool.
Just in case you had ever been left in any doubt what he thought about it.
The media release, entitled ‘Indecent Exposure of Parading Adults’, reads:
“Having served for over 34 years in the NSW Parliament and outspoken yearly about the immoral essence of the Homosexual and Lesbian Mardi Gras, the Rev. Fred Nile, Leader of the Christian Democratic Party, wants to set the record straight!
“I am a crusader for human freedoms and family values governed by traditional Judeo-Christian values. It is wrong when freedoms are exploited and test our laws. This is evident annually in the Homosexual and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade.
[Yeah, come on, LBGTQI community. Can you stop exploiting all your freedoms? You know, those freedoms you have.
Not the freedom to get married or any of that family equality business, or anything.
But your other freedoms. All of them.
The media release continues:]
“Almost naked adults luridly imposing their sexuality to spectating, innocent children should be illegal as, according to our laws, is indecent exposure,” said Rev. Nile.
The first Mardi Gras took place in Taylor Square in 1978 and was an unfortunate event as it turned into violence with clashes with the NSW Police. Since then the laws have changed significantly to accommodate homosexuals in Australian society.
“The activists in the homosexual community will always be faced with a fundamental deficiency. This deficiency is governed by Almighty God’s law and natural law. Almighty God’s intention for the continuation of life was to reproduce via the miracle of reproduction within the context of a male and female relationship.
If you need a quick breather from the hate, here’s a wonderful post from Penny Wong about Mardi Gras and equality: This Mardi Gras, let’s commit to end homophobia.
“This is why essentially homosexuality is in opposition to the concept of the natural reproduction of life,” stated Rev. Fred Nile.
Rev. Fred Nile therefore calls on the NSW Police Force to uphold the existing laws as they would enforce everyday and there should be no exception on Mardi Gras night.
Congratulations, Rev. Nile. Your disgusting and outdated views have given an entire country yet another reason to celebrate Mardi Gras as loud as they possibly can.
Outraged? This will cheer you up. It’s Mardi Gras – so here’s the most joyous video you’ll see this weekend.
