Is Peter Tatchell deliberately trying to wind up Iris Robinson? I ask merely for information.
From today’s Telegraph:
A leading gay rights activist has raised the temperature in the row over homosexuality by claiming there was evidence King Billy had male lovers.
Peter Tatchell highlighted the controversial allegation as evidence of hypocrisy over homosexuality in Northern Ireland, but he was condemned by unionists for setting out to deliberately cause offence.
The campaigner will tonight deliver the Amnesty International Pride Lecture in Belfast…
King Billy was married, but some academics have pointed to his promotion of young men to high office as evidence of bisexuality.
A DUP spokesman dismissed the allegation.
“This is the kind of deliberately offensive and provocative comment and shock tactics that he has used in the past,” he said.
Bearing in mind that our First Lady seems to be afflicted by Tourette’s whenever anyone mentions homosexuality, if Peter keeps this up she’ll be keeling over with a stroke.
And are no loyalist icons sacred any more? Next he’ll be saying King Billy didn’t have a white horse.
