"If you are fleeing persecution and that fear is well-founded, then you should be able to stay... If someone has a realistic fear of persecution they should be allowed to stay. It was wrong that refugees were often told to hide their sexuality from police who would imprison, torture or kill them for it...The Mail added:
Sorting this issue out and recognising that full equality is a bottom-line, full essential... I think, now, looking back, you can see the mistake of Section 28...
I think we can look gay people in the eye and say: 'You can now back us - because we now support gay equality'...
I don't want to get into a huge row with the Archbishop here, but the Church has to do some of the things that the Conservative Party has been through."
"Gay refugees from Africa should be granted asylum in the UK, David Cameron has said... Under immigration rules, gay men are often sent back to countries with homophobic regimes and advised to keep their sexuality a secret in case local police attack them. But Mr Cameron said the rules should be changed to protect homosexuals fleeing persecution...Logic dictates that if you change the law to make it easier for homosexual Africans to stay, many more will attempt to get here. Logic and the data also dictate that homosexual Africans, per capita, are much, much more likely to have HIV, full blown AIDS, Hepatitis C and a variety of sub-Saharan ailments than the average Briton.
He also promised... he would force faith schools to teach pupils there was nothing wrong with being gay...
Mr Cameron's comments are the latest example of his conversion over gay rights. Once a supporter of Margaret Thatcher's Section 28 law, which banned the 'promotion' of homosexuality in schools, he changed his position after becoming Conservative leader in 2005.
Cameron apologise(d) for his previous support of Section 28. The 1988 law was repealed by Labour in 2003. AT THE TIME, MR CAMERON ATTACKED TONY BLAIR for 'moving heaven and earth to allow the promotion of homosexuality in our schools'.
Mr Cameron also called for an end to the ban on gays giving blood, saying: 'Logic would dictate that it's time to change'."
"YOU CAN SEE THE MISTAKE OF SECTION 28. I think we can look gay people in the eye and say: 'YOU CAN NOW BACK US BECAUSE WE NOW SUPPORT GAY EQUALITY'."In other words, 'you can now vote for us in the coming General Election because I have my nu-Tory tongue all the way up homosexuality's cheeky bot.'
David Cameron's mega-rich grandad, Emile Levita, was a Jewish immigrant. Dr Yaakov Wise, a research fellow at the University of Manchester's Centre for Jewish Studies, reckons that Cameron could be 'a direct descendant of Moses.'
I don't think old Mose would be too pleased with his descendant genuflecting before the Sodomite. In Leviticus, 18:22-23, he says:
"You shall not lie with a man as with a woman. It is an abomination!"As for Section 28, it prevented the PC Crowd from promoting homosexuality in the classroom. The all-nu-desperate-for-the-gay-vote Dave now thinks the non-promotion of such was a 'mistake.'
Take note you true-blue Conservative types. Take note you Mams and Dads who are thinking of voting for the Cameron brand of Conservatism.
