The Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard will no longer be speaking at the upcoming Australian Christian Lobby conference, after ACL’s Jim Wallace said yesterday that “smoking is healthier than gay marriage”.
GILLARD REJECTS “OFFENSIVE” CHRISTIAN LOBBY CLAIMS
In a statement issued by the Prime Minister, Ms Gillard said:
“I believe yesterday’s comments by Jim Wallace were offensive. To compare the health effects of smoking cigarettes with the many struggles gay and lesbian Australians endure in contemporary society is heartless and wrong.”
