Disappointing attitude from Little Johnny

Little Johnny looking a bit old on it

Little Johnny looking a bit old on it

Little Johnny is being a bit silly, in a fuddy-duddy kind of way.

MARRIAGE equality is “nonsense” and children should be raised in an “ordinary, orthodox, heterosexual marriage”, former Prime Minister John Howard says.

Mr Howard was in Adelaide today bolstering support for the Coalition , particularly in Hindmarsh, which is sitting on 50/50 in the polls.

He did a good old-fashioned shopping-mall walk, where he had a ridiculous number of selfies taken with strapping young lads. 

He may have single-handedly won the seat for local Liberal candidate Matt Williams – in 2004 Labor wrested Hindmarsh from the Liberals with just 108 votes.

Mr Howard said he was against gay marriage and that “the best environment to raise children is in an ordinary, orthodox, heterosexual marriage”.

Asked whether he thought there should be a conscience vote, he said that was a matter for the party.

“But if you’re asking my view ‚Ķ I think this whole argument that it’s marriage equality is nonsense,” he said.

    Nobody should have a problem with his “opinion”…agree, disagree, it makes no difference.
    I still say, Australia voted him out and replaced him with 3 (as it turned out) total losers and liars (rudd, gillard and rudd 2) Abbott is yet to be tested in leadership, but on first viewing I believe he still can’t match Howard….Time will tell.

    • Andy C

      surely it is OK to have a problem with a bigoted opinion JBH?

      • johnbronkhorst

        Who’s bigoted? He just thinks a certain way and I would say you disagree!!
        SO WHAT!!!
        By calling him a bigot, simply for voicing his opinion, actually makes you the bigot!!

        • Andy C

          Oh no, not again JBH: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bigotry

          wiki totally hates you dude…

          • johnbronkhorst

            Bigotry is the state of mind of a bigot: someone who, as a result of their prejudices, treats other people with fear, distrust, hatred, contempt, or intolerance on the basis of a person’s ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status, or other characteristics.

            Yes I can look it up too!!!

            Where did Howard say anything gay’s.

            he said ‚Äúthe best environment to raise children is in an ordinary, orthodox, heterosexual marriage‚ÄĚ.

          • BR

            I despise the homosexual lobby, the majority of of whom are homosexuals. I also don’t give a rats arse what your sort think of that. Cappiche?

            Bill.

      • Intrinsicvalue

        Seriously Andy, is calling someone a bigot the best argument you have?

        • Hazards001

          Of course it is.
          Self involved pillow biters that don’t have the fucking sense to keep their sex lives and sexual practices in the bedroom but want to go prancing up and down the street proclaiming how different they are and how because they are so different they should be treated the same as everyone else.
          Except for when they want to be treated differently of course. They have only one option when those of us that DO NOT parade our sex lives and sexual preferences for all and sundry to see other than to call us bigots when of course all most of us want them to do is STFU and keep it to themselves like the rest of us do!
          I don’t give a fuck if someone’s an ass bandit or carpet muncher, a chubby chaser or attracted to fat red headed chicks with tits that hang down to their ankles.
          I don’t care if someone’s Mrs. likes being tied to the bed and beaten to a pulp or that her hubby can only get his jollies if the cats in the room.

          And as much as I don’t give a fuck I don’t want to fucking hear about it either!
          FUCK!

    What’s with the limp wrist? Looks like he is waiting for someone to kiss his hand – does he think he is royalty?

    • johnbronkhorst

      Running for Pope?

      • Euan Ross-Taylor

        He looks more like a ‘queen’.

      • DLNZ

        Waiting for someone to kiss his ring I think??

    • Col

      That happens when your thinking about coming out of the closet.

  • redeye

    Man he has aged. I’ve never been a fan. Even his own party referred to him as the “Lying Little Rodent”. Amazing they have him campaigning.

    The first leader in 80 years to lose his own seat. KRudd is just about to become the 3rd.

  • cows4me

    What’s disappointing about Johnny’s attitude? Oh that’s right we’re much more evolved, more civilised, more hip, more politically correct over here. At least Johnny has the balls to say how he feels, not like our so called elected representatives that shunned public opinion , God forbid they be labelled BIGOTS.

    • Andy C

      C4M, do you agree with his view?

      • Polish Pride

        He’s a Farmer Andy. Show me a Farmer in support of this and I’ll show you a gay farmer…………. tending his flock of unicorns.

      • cows4me

        Yes indeed sir.

        • Andy C

          what a shame cows4me

          • cows4me

            Why ???

  • drummerboy

    There is nothing wrong with what he said. marriage equality is nonsense, and you would be pretty stupid to think that raising a child in a gay home will be just as good as a natural family.

    • Polish Pride

      We had the debate over here already, your side lost remember. Let it go bro.
      And the best news is you don’t have to have one if you don’t want to.

      • cows4me

        What tosh, there was no debate, the people had no say. We didn’t lose we were railroaded.

        • Polish Pride

          The debate was right here on W/O as always. I like to think its the only time the politicians listened to me. Don’t destroy my illusion cows, that one took a wee while to create ;)

          • BR

            Yes, and most of the subscribers here did not support homo “marriage”.

            Bill.

      • philbest

        Doesn’t make it right. Plenty of stuff that gets enacted into law these days is based on BS. Carbon taxes and emissions trading schemes, for example.

        And you wait, this ain’t stopping at “equality”. “Hate” laws are already shutting down people who dare to disagree according to their conscience – like the baker who wouldn’t do a wedding cake with two blokes on the top.

        • Andy C

          shutting down bigots is a bad thing?

          • philbest

            Shutting down free speech and the freedom to exercise conscience is fascism, yes. Shutting down businesses and imprisoning people whose “crime” is to regard buggery as a sin, is fascism and is worse than the “bigotry” itself.
            The same “bigots” have long also regarded fornication and adultery as sins, but we don’t have “fornicators and adulterers rights” groups demanding the “cleansing” of society from this “stone-age bigotry”. Presumably fornicators and adulterers are largely people who won’t want a bar of militant secularist fascism. The fact that many sodomites do, is a give-away regarding their character. Goes with the Nazi uniform fetishism, I suppose.

            Interestingly, we do have groups beavering away on the neo-Marxist end of the political spectrum to end “discrimination” against multiple-partner relationships, paedophilia, and bestiality. After all, these people were all “born with” their particular bent, too. Bit tough on them to still be regarded as sinners, huh?

    • Andy C

      Nonsense drummerboy (and fuck you to boot)

      • drummerboy

        “fuck you” has to be the classic gay/pro gay response to anyone who doesn’t agree with them. No law is going to change my opinion on what marriage and a healthy family looks like. just get over it.

        • Macca

          Well said – couldn’t agree more!

        • Polish Pride

          Is the problem that you’re scared you’ll be tricked into having a gay marriage one day?

        • Andy C

          No, its the classic response to bigotry. We probably disagree on many things that I would never insult you over.

          “No law is going to change my opinion” – yep, that’s precisely why we enact laws like this, so that people like you are unable to legally inflict your bigotry onto others. The law isn’t to change you, its to protect others from you

          • drummerboy

            Telling people “fuck you” because they don’t have your values is what a bigot does. So if we are going to be calling anyone a bigot based on their behavior i think the only one acting like a bigot is you.

  • Greg

    GO JOHN…

  • Macca

    I find nothing disappointing about his attitude whatsoever!
    His views are no different to both mine or any one of about 100 other real Kiwi blokes I know and enjoy having a beer with!
    You can talk til yer blue in the face but no poofta will ever convince me otherwise!

  • Jmac

    It takes a man and a woman to create a child. What’s wrong with saying that’s the ideal as far as raising one?

    • Andy C

      He’s not saying that JMac, he’s s saying its not OK for homosexuals to raise children. Do you think homosexuals cannot raise children in a loving family environment too?

      • Jmac

        No he didn’t. He said it’s the best environment for children to be raised in. Do you dispute that?

  • BR

    God bless John Howard. He speaks the truth.

    Homo “marriage” will never be anything but state sanctioned bullshit, and such sordid liaisons will never achieve any sort of parity with traditional marriage, no matter how often and how widely such “equality” propaganda is disseminated.

    Bill.

  • blairmulholland

    Good on him. I’m just about done with these narcissists whining that they were born with cock in their mouths and that they’re the new Martin Luther Kings. No, nobody is born an automaton preprogrammed to suck dick. Behaviour is not a pre-existing condition. And if you’re an adult, you can behave how you like in the privacy of your own home, but don’t go around telling me that certain words mean something different from what they normally mean, and that this entitles you to a special certificate from the government. You have all the freedom and rights you need, now piss off.

    • philbest

      Yeah, one conservative black pastor put it beautifully recently: “don’t you equate your sin to my skin….”

  • FredFrog

    Instead of legalising gay marriage, why not just outlaw marriage. It’s been taken over by the religious twats anyway, so means absolutely nothing these days.
