I've never voted tory in my life and his attitude is just one of the many reasons why I haven't

Taken for their wesbite:

"We want a fairer society and will use every lever to tear down barriers that prevent equality"


If that is the case why did over half of them vote against same sex marriage?

Seems that most aren't letting him getting away with that kind of comments so easily. That's all it matters to me.

Jones said he did not believe he was homophobic, insisting he had "people in my life who are important to me who are gay"
Well that's me convinced then. Move on. Nothing to see here.

Heh! Honestly, I really still find it hard to believe we have such stupid politicians. And yes I do mean Stupid as in no intelligence.

Yep. Me too. Sigh.

The man is clearly an disgrace and an idiot to boot.

He say married gays can't safely raise children, then later says partnered gays are OK to adopt. ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-21472004 )

Cameron must sack this fool at the earliest opportunity.

Hypocrites
Say one thing and do the opposite
Much like the tory who was on about the sanctity etc of marriage whilst having an affair

The fact is straight people, such as the ones seen daily on programmes like The Jeremy Kyle Show, are clearly more capable of raising a child than a gay couple. The evidence is all there to see.



PS: This is why you should never vote Tory. Under the surface they are still homophobic.

Because double standards are their middle name. We see it almost all the time. Like this one a couple of years ago. One candidate parroted a similar slogan: 'fairer society and we must try to tear down barriers that prevent equality'. One public member asked what would he do about women earning less than men in same jobs.

She explained she and her male colleague have same job title, same responsibilities and same working hours, but her male colleague earned 2,340 more than she did. She wanted to know if the candidate would do something to ensure equality in that respect.

He danced around the question by implying it was warranted, considering that "husbands are still breadwinners". The public member pointed out she was the breadwinner of her family. The candidate smiled and said rather smoothly, "We support divorced parents' rights..." The public member snapped, "I'm still married." The candidate smiled patronisingly, then ignored her to take a question from someone else.

He strikes me as a "clinger".
I think he will linger for as long as he can.

There are many straight couples who can't or don't even try to provide a "'warm and safe environment for the upbringing of children'", so why just gay people?

Homophobic bigot!

I just can't understand why a gay couple couldn't provide a "warm" or "safe" environment for a child. Is he going to tell the people who are important to him who just happen to be gay that he thinks a child would be unsafe with them and that they're therefore not fit to be parents? What a prat.

"I regard marriage as an institution that has developed over many centuries, essentially for the provision of a warm and safe environment for the upbringing of children, which is clearly something that two same-sex partners can't do
Does he think gay people can't lock front doors or operate the central heating?

The Tory party is still infested by deep-seated social conservatism.

Anyway, this is an excellent reply by gay dad and actor Charlie Condou:

Note to minister - it's developing some more.
