Just weeks after Paul Rudd embraced marriage equality and once again became Australia’s Prime Minister, his sister is going in a decidedly different direction. Towleroad.com reports:
Loree Rudd, the sister of newly-elected and second-time Australian PM Kevin Rudd, says she thinks Australia should introduce a ban on “gay propaganda” like Russia, which she just visisted, News Limited Network reports: “It’s like he (Putin) can see the problem ahead,” Ms Rudd, 62, who has just returned from a visit to Russia, said. “I think that there should be a law (in Australia) protecting children from the propaganda of homosexuality as normal. They’re trying to build their family life and structure in Russia and people in the West don’t seem to understand our family life and structures are breaking down. I guess the bottom line, if there’s one thing I can say that can’t be challenged, it’s that society needs to protect its children as best they can.”
And what “problem ahead” is that – that gay people will want equal rights, and it’s better to crush them hard? I guess sometimes the apple does fall far from the tree. Shame on you for promoting discrimination, Ms. Rudd!
