The Herald Sun I Author: Matt Johnston
Political candidate Tess Corbett who is running for Bob Katter's Australia Party in the seat of Wannon, Victoria,commented recently that it would be a "sad day" if homosexuals had equal rights to other people. Corbett goes on to compare gay and lesbian people to paedophiles.
"Victorian Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby spokeswoman Anna Brown also called for Mr Katter to intervene and confirm his party did not support homophobic remarks.
"I'm pleased to say that Ms Corbett's comments don't reflect the views of the vast majority of Australians who support laws that protect against the harm caused by discrimination," she said."
