HappyClappingHomos respond to SPCS

HappyClappingHomos would like to publicly ask the Society for Protection of Community Standards how having gay electoral candidates of any party is detrimental to the country. The Society would do well to remember that those gay candidates who are standing, are perfectly capable of doing the job, and are not any less able than their heterosexual counterparts.

HappyClappingHomos has noticed over recent days that the Society is become slightly more hysterical about the “Gay Agenda” with every passing press release – bemoaning the fact that it is now legal to engage in “Sodomy”, and being less than accurate with the content of judgments.

The society needs to be reminded that it is, by engaging in such puerile actions such portraying all gays as “promiscuous”, and making insinuations that gay people only get ahead because of some global conspiracy that they are in fact damaging the very message they set out to promote – Honesty, Integrity and Accountability.

We would like to point out to the Society that if the best it has up its sleeve is emotive rhetoric backed up by hearsay a dash of paranoia and a touch of hysteria then perhaps it is time to throw in the towel, settle down and have a nice cup of tea.

We would also like to point out to the society the age-old adage that those who can, do. Those who can’t, criticise.
