Union of a different kind annoys Paisley Jr…

CONGRATULATIONS to Ulster Unionist adviser Steven King, who recently married his partner in Canada, according to the Mirror (no link). In the same story, the DUP’s Ian Paisley Jr has strongly criticised the whole concept of a civil partnership – something King defended on the BBC’s Hearts & Minds not so long ago.

Paisley Sr was so incensed by the idea of legislation on ‘gay marriage’ being extended to Northern Ireland that he demanded and got a postponement of the vote on the Civil Partnership Bill during the Leeds Castle talks last year. Looks like Paisley is still trying to ‘Save Ulster from Sodomy’
