Election candidate wants gay people jailed, adultery made illegal and rock bands outlawed

An election candidate who wants rock music banned, gay people jailed and feminism abolished has rejected claims she is extreme.

....

The devout Christian says her campaign will focus on moral issues including society's "dangerous" homosexual agenda.

She also wants to outlaw rock music, saying it fuels sexual anarchy and drug use.

....

"I don't consider myself extreme - not at all," she said. "It is society that has moved. Not so far in the past, most people would have shared my views.

"My views only seem extreme because society has moved away from God's principles."

....

Mrs White said she opposes feminism "with all her might", and says it is to blame for the recession.

"Feminism is responsible for many of the social ills we see all around us," she added.
"They [feminists] are responsible for the economy - they destroyed the whole concept of a family wage with the father as the bread-winner and the stay-at-home mother. They make women feel they have to be out in the workforce."

Mrs White is also "absolutely opposed to the homosexual agenda" in today's society. If I had the power, I would certainly re-criminalise homosexuality, along with adultery," she added.

She said anyone involved in homosexual or adulterous practices should be jailed.

I jumped right to the article expecting it to be here.

So I posted excerpts leaving out her location because it certainly could be Gohmert's district.

Kirk points out how cruel the planet's policies are, and Spock demonstrates the inherent logical fallacies. The master computer running the place spits sparks and smokes, and then after Kirk punches a few people, all is set right, McCoy is sprung from jail, and they all have a good laugh.

Either religion is ripe for perfectly acceptable mocking, or it is not. To stake out a position based on the politics of the believer is hypocrisy.

Why is this even in GD? So, there's this wacko religious nut in Ireland who is running for office. She won't be elected, and it's in freaking Ireland. Why did you not disclose that in your post in the first place. Do we not have enough issues in the US, based on real candidates who might affect all of us?

I'm sorry, but this post doesn't even belong on DU, especially if you disguise its origin in a blind link and don't include the location, which was disclosed near the top of the article.

Bogus.

Relevant section - Discuss politics, issues, and current events.

The SOP doesn't say that it HAS to be US politics.

On Tue Apr 28, 2015, 12:53 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

Election candidate wants gay people jailed, adultery made illegal and rock bands outlawed
http://www.democraticunderground.com/10026582034

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

The OP deliberately disguised the location of this article, using a blind link and deliberately omitting the fact that the location is Ireland. He/she admits that in post #2. This is deceptive and the article is irrelevant to US politics. By trying to deceive DUers, the OP insults everyone's intelligence and attempts to stir up some crap, rather than helping us by providing relevant facts. Deliberate deception. Please read Post #2 and then hide this OP. -MineralMan

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Tue Apr 28, 2015, 01:41 PM, and the Jury voted 0-7 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: You have GOT to be kidding me. Do you think others can't figure that out? ESPECIALLY since it's in post #2? This is not against the CS of DU. Not even close.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: If he was wanting to decieve people, why would he admit to it?

The forum allows for discussion of Foreign politics as well. If you take offense to that Mineralman, feel free to speak to the admins about changing that rule.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: There is nothing in the DU standards that bars non-US stories.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Or it could be a way of showing the US isn't unique (General Discussion is not limited to US politics, I believe). Your points are valid ones to bring up with the poster in the discussion.
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: We can't read the news anymore?
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: There was a link. Jumping to conclusions without even trying to follow it seems like a personal problem.

Apr 2015

Conn had big lead on all scorecards going into the 13th round. All he had to do to become Heavyweight Champion was continue to box. Instead he tried to knockout Louis and got knocked out himself. When asked why he went for the KO Conn said "What's the use of being Irish if you can't be stupid?"

By the way, I'm Irish
