A UKIP Parish Councillor has claimed it is a “tragedy” that Section 28, which prevents the discussion of homosexuality in schools, was repealed, because “gays want to destroy the traditional family”.
According to The Mirror, Iain McLaughlan, a member of Orton Waterville Parish Council in Peterborough, wrote, “Children need to be protected from the promotion of homosexuality, Margaret Thatcher was right to enact Section 28 in 1988. And it was a tragedy that it was repealed.”
He went on to say that Section 28 was introduced due to “Some labour councils promoting homosexuality…the gay manifesto wanted to destroy the heterosexual family”.
He has also suggested that people who are gay have simply “had sex so much with members of the opposite sex that they get burned out and try something else”.
McLaughlan, who is standing for Peterborough City Council concluded, “I have nothing against homosexuals”.
The self-described “follower of Christ” previously drew attention from the British public when he branded abortion a “modern day holocaust” in March.
