Cameron denies regrets over gay marriage

DAVID Cameron, the British Prime Minister who caused outrage a few days ago when he claimed that the Islamic terrorist atrocity in Kenya had nothing to do with Islam, has found himself at the centre of a fresh controversy over gay marriage.

Cameron today refuted claims he had regretted pushing forward on same-sex marriages after it divided the Conservatives, lost him party support and created a “furore”.

DAVID Cameron, the British Prime Minister who caused outrage a few days ago when he claimed that the Islamic terrorist atrocity in Kenya had nothing to do with Islam, has found himself at the centre of a fresh controversy over gay marriage.

Cameron today refuted claims he had regretted pushing forward on same-sex marriages after it divided the Conservatives, lost him party support and created a “furore”.

Speaking to BBC One’s Andrew Marr, the Tory leader denied claims made in Matthew d’Ancona’s book In It Together that suggested he regretted his support for same sex unions.

I don’t regret it. Britain is a more equal and fairer country for having done it. It’s certainly true to say that this is an important change. I don’t think I expected quite the furore that there was.

He added:

It’s clearly been very difficult for some people to take on, and I completely understand and respect that. I am passionate about marriage. I think it's a great institution, and I think it should be available to people who are gay as well as those of us who aren't.

The Conservative leader recently announced a £1000 ($1.6k, €1.9k) tax break for married couples, roughly £3.82 a week.

He said:

The £1,000 marriage tax allowance will apply to straight and gay couples, as well as civil partners. Love is love, commitment is commitment.

That’s certainly not the view of the Gambia’s Muslim President, Yahya Jammeh, who used his address to the United Nations to attack lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people – claiming gender and sexual minorities are one of the three:

Biggest threats to human existence.

The imbecile, who claims to be able to cure AIDS with herbs and bananas compared homosexuality to the sins of greed and a lust for power, saying it is:

More deadly than all natural disasters put together.

Speaking to world leaders at the United Nations on September 27, Jammeh said:

Those who promote homosexuality want to put an end to human existence. It is becoming an epidemic and we Muslims and Africans will fight to end this behavior. Homosexuality in all its forms and manifestations which, though very evil, anti-human as well as anti-Allah, is being promoted as a human right by some powers.

Jammeh's comments drew worldwide criticism, with Andre Banks, executive director of international gay rights group All Out, calling him 'paranoid and disturbing'. In a statement, Bank said:

In his list of the world's greatest threats, the President left one out – intolerance.

Meanwhile, Russian President Vlaimir Putin has explained why he:

Deeply disliked societies that legalised same-sex marriage.

According to this report, earlier this year he equated gay marriage and Satanism ... and expressed his opinion that the woes of his Italian "friend" Silvio Berlusconi were due to his:

Irreconcilable heterosexuality. Berlusconi is being accused for his love affairs with women. Were he a homosexual then no one would lay a finger on him.

Putin went on to deny that Russia was penalising sexual minorities. There is only one law that:

Prohibits the propaganda of homosexuality to minors.

There is nothing to be worried about, he added, but he blamed homosexuals for worsening Russia’s demographic crisis, and warned that Europeans were dying out because of homosexuality and immigration.
