Against gay marriage? You’re a Neanderthal! – so said the Prime Minister…
If you believe marriage is between one man and one woman, you are making a “Neanderthal judgement” on homosexual people.
That’s what the Prime Minister said during the passage of same-sex marriage legislation, according to a new biography compiled from more than 300 interviews with senior figures in and around Number 10.
Co-author Sir Anthony Seldon wrote that in response to his advisers repeatedly warning him against introducing same-sex marriage, David Cameron said: “Unless you are making some Neanderthal judgement on gays, those who are gay should have the same rights as those who are not.”
It’s hard to be surprised by this revelation. Since day one there has been a blatant disregard and lack of respect for people who happen to disagree with the metropolitan elite on the issue of marriage.
We well remember Nick Clegg, when he was Deputy Prime Minister, referring to Peers who voted against redefining marriage as “dinosaurs”.
And of course Tory MP Sarah Woollaston called C4M supporters “bigots” in a shameful tweet during the run-up to this year’s General Election.
Like so many other advocates of same-sex marriage, they fail to extend the same tolerance and respect that they demand for their views to those who disagree with them.
