DUP education minister falls over himself defending colleague who shared ‘ex-gay’ propaganda
Northern Ireland’s education minister Peter Weir defended DUP colleague Nelson McCausland after he shared “ex-gay” propaganda, claiming he did nothing wrong.
Weird pushed back at criticism of McCausland, who formerly represented the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) on the Northern Ireland Assembly and currently sits on the board of the nation’s Education Authority.
McCausland has defied calls to resign after sharing “ex-gay” propaganda on Facebook, having described an account of a man who renounced homosexuality as a “powerful testimony of a life changed by God”.
The DUP figure shared an article from the anti-LGBT+ US-based Gospel Coalition, lauding a former Hollywood fashion designer who renounced his homosexuality after praying for God to heal his “sexual brokenness”.
DUP education minister claims colleague was not advocating for conversion therapy.
