On Monday, Booker Rising reported that parliamentary candidate Winston McKenzie criticized gay adoptions. Liberal Brits cried foul and even after losing the special election on Thursday, the UK Independence Party member continues his criticism. From Gay Star News: "Speaking [yesterday] (30 November) on live British terrestrial TV — on ITV's This Morning program, he defended his views and went even further. He stated gay parenting is a 'violation' of the child’s rights, because same-sex couples are harmful to children. He claimed gay adoption is indicative of society that is 'profoundly failing our youth' instead they 'are thrown away to the dogs'."
The article continues about Mr. McKenzie's views: "According to McKenzie his generation being brought up by a mother and father made his generation 'more grounded'. He added: 'If you look at the Roman Empire, how it went down – it became Sodom and Gomorrah.'"
