UKIP's David Silvester has been widely condemned for calling the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act “contrary to the gospel”. 

I used to live my life thinking live and let live. That was before we started getting lots of rain and gay people started getting married. Obviously the two things couldn't possibly be connected. Could they?

Well, obviously not. Well not if you're rational and level-headed. But what if you're a UKIP supporter?

Since the passage of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act, the nation has been beset by serious storms and floods. One recent one caused the worst flooding for 60 years. The Christmas floods were the worst for 127 years. Is this just global warming or is there something more serious at work?”

David Silvester (suspended UKIP councillor) – who called homosexuality a “spiritual disease”, thinks that God is punishing us for allowing people of the same sex equal rights.   This one also works if you are a religious person who doesn’t want their religion hijacked by extremists.

Then there's Dr Julia Gasper, former chair of the Oxford Branch of UKIP who said this:  "As for the links between homosexuality and paedophilia, there is so much evidence that even a full-length book could hardly do justice to the ­subject.” FFS. She also thought that gay rights were a “lunatic’s charter”, and likened homosexuality to bestiality.  Lovely woman.  She also said that she wouldn't talk about her comments to a journalist, because it was “None of your business”. I disagree.  We have the right to ask questions of those who seek power, especially when they spout hate like this.

Here's another little cracker: “The evidence is quite clear that the percentage of homosexuals who molest children is very high and cannot be dismissed.”  That pearl of wisdom is from UKIP member Jan Zolyniak.

Then we have Douglas Denny, of the Bognor branch who protests with imagery that has clearly had him awake at night… “I just wish they would keep their homosexual nature and practices to themselves and stop trying to ram it down my throat telling me they are ‘normal’ when they are not.”

Gay adoption is “unhealthy”, and a form of “Child abuse”, according to Winston McKenzie, the 2012 candidate for Croydon.  Winston seems lovely, and a man of conviction, who stands loyal to his policy.  Which is why he has run for election with every political party in the country, and failed every time.

But UKIP members are not always homophobes.  Two notable exceptions are Olly Neville, former leader of UKIP youth organisation ‘Young Independence, and Richard Lowe, former UKIP candidate for Chester.  Both bravely stood in support of Gay marriage.  Both were subsequently fired because of that support.

The 2004 candidate for Mayor of London Frank Maloney, refused to go to Camden to campaign.  His reasons?  There were, “too many gays” and “there is a problem with gay parades.”

But fear not.  If you feel that just reading this article puts you at risk of “getting gay”, UKIP have the answer.  Just go for a brisk jog.  2013 local election UKIP candidate John Sullivan says that physical exercise regimes in schools would prevent people from being gay.  Just keep your eyes closed in the showers John.  We don't want to put you off your “protesting a little too much” homophobia.

The lovely Harry Perry, mentioned elsewhere, thinks that homosexuals are, “An abomination against God”.  He was suspended for his “crackpot views”.  So if you hate homophobia, this is who wants to represent you, and if you hate homophobia, these people don't even have the courage to stand up for your bigotry.  Either way, the bigots lose.
