Fianna Fáil Senator Jim Walsh is well-known for his curious thoughts on social issues.
During an interview in 2009 he said – “If I were to call people fairies. I would be called a bigot and all sorts of things, but David Norris says it all the time and nothing is said”. He also claimed people may be gay due to environmental issues. That’s global warming for ya.
So it will come as no surprise to anyone that he defended the Iona Institute today. In doing so, he said there is a hate campaign being waged on twitter against the Iona institute. For all Iona’s claims there is a hate campaign and they are recieving death threats, you’d think they would report the issue to the Gardai…..
