(This may be the funniest thing I have ever posted on this forum.)
Genuine question John. Why is it funny?
Maybe people didn't always agree with him and many opposed him, but didn't he stand up for and put himself on the line for his beliefs?
I'll admit I'm politically niave, so i don't know much about what he stood for.
He stood for KEEPING SODOMY OUT OF ULSTER.
And HATING THE POPE.
He was always one of my favourites in Spitting Image
If Roman Catholicism is the one true faith then him and St. Peter are having a bit of a heavy conversation right about now..JPII is there like..Jeering.
Away from the murky depths of Northern Irish politics, Ian Paisley was simply a horribly homophobic man, bordering on the obsessive, who combined politics with religion in exactly the way it shouldn't be.
Not just opposing rights for gay people, but actively seeking to make all homosexual acts a criminal offence.
It's funny because he said "No" a lot in a loud voice. Maybe I should have put it in the impersonations thread.
Ah!! I see now. Like I say...i'm a bit niave on politics.
A bit like a homophobic Dawn Penn
Shows how niave i am about such things. Never realised about his homophobia. Not nice.
Was mad as a bat. Should not have been a vicar. Not worthy of the name.
