Thank you to my dear friend Eva for inspiring me to expose this week’s bigot. This week we have an international edition of BWA, John Murphy a Member of Parliament in Australia demonstrated a real bias against civil rights topped off with audacious hypocrisy. Australia, is this someone you are proud of to represent your country? Shall we send George W over to you? In a speech issued during a debate on a marriage equality bill, Murphy issued this bit of venom:
[Marriage equality] is a seemingly innocuous term [which has been] hijacked by those who want to redefine marriage to include same-sex couples—for the simple reason that this will maximise support. Most people support marriage and almost everyone supports equality. It sounds so reasonable.
Well most people don’t support bigotry and almost no-one supports sleaze, so that leaves you out in the cold, Mr. Murphy. To add insult to injury, he paused in this despicable testimony to…wait for it…WISH HIS WIFE A HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Now that takes some real chutzpah. Let me celebrate the very rights I intend to withhold from others — while I’m making a speech on public policy. Seems like Murphy’s been taking his vitamin NOM.
