According to sky News David Silvester the Ukip Councillor for Henley-On-Thames has been suspended by the party after revealing that he is praying for gay people to be healed of their ‘spiritual disease’ .
today in a radio interview he said that he warned the prime minister that there would be ‘repercussion’ if gay marriage is to go ahead, and that his daily prayers convinced him that the recent flooding was the consequence.
He also told BBC Radio Berkshire that he doesn’t have a problem with gay people.’ I believe that as a Christian I should love gay people and indeed I do. My prayer is for them to be healed.’
He also added ‘it’s nonsense to say it’s homophobic. If you love someone enough to want them to be healed and have a proper family, it’s hardly homophobic.’
‘It’s a spiritual disease…. it is not what I say it’s what the Bible says.’
Silvester, a former Conservative who defected to Ukip, added that he’s been told not to give any more interviews.
The Police should get involved as it’s clearly meant to be homophobic, as this is more like you would expect to be spouted by the homophobic Bible basher’s in the southern states of the US.
‘If you love someone enough to want them to be healed and have a proper family, it’s hardly homophobic.’
This line is incredibly homophobic as if you love someone enough you don’t care if their sexual orientation is different to your own as long as they’re happy who they are.
