Gay people are welcome in the membership of the DUP, First Minister Arlene Foster has told BBC News NI. Many gay people vote for the party, said the DUP leader.

"This suggestion that every single person who is a homosexual wants to change the definition of marriage is wrong," she said. "I know plenty of people in that community who don't want to see marriage redefined are quite content to live in partnership."

The first minister has denied letting online abuse harden her opposition to same-sex marriage. The DUP's support for the traditional definition of marriage was a manifesto commitment, said Mrs Foster, adding that she would continue to use a petition of concern to veto any attempts to change the law on marriage at Stormont.

So, if you're a man who indulges in the occasional spot of recreational bum pleasure, or a woman who's partial to a periodic bout of minge munching, you can join the DUP as it's a big gay party now, just so long as you are not intent on sustaining your sexual proclivities into a lifestyle choice and are opposed to SSM.

Makes total sense, and no doubt the rate of party membership applications from within the LGBT comoonity shall excel all expectations since big Arlene (who is a showcase example of successful gender reassignment surgery) made her announcement (although the hands, feet and posture are a dead giveaway).

Many Gays seem to think that they have a right to shout down anyone who disagrees with homosexuality. Verbal abuse from supporters of Gay rights is common.

Well, gays have traditionally been on the receiving end of abuse, and with marriage still being denied, they are simply venting their frustration.

So former DUP rising star Paul LondonBerry was kicked out of the party wrongly?
Will he be allowed back?

Once he's cured, no doubt they'll let him back. Those "sports injuries" can be quite nigglesome...

Viva you have been following Northern Irish politics long enough to know that if the DUP are anything it is hypocritical....At least four of the leading DUPed are that way inclined.

Maybe they should send him to Lourdes, while Arlene holidays on Lisbos.

Only if he shares the number if his private masseur with those repressed homosexualis in the party.

How could Foster keep a straight (pun intended ) face while spouting that rubbish ?

The DUPs closet must be a busy place.

My understanding is that it's not even a secret in respect of two of them. Have no qualms about that, except for their hypocrisy when dealing with gay issues in legislation.

Not surprised. The British Establishment are a case in point.

So heartening to see consensus on these matters across the sectarian divide.

How can you disagree with homosexuality, it's not like you can do anything about it.

Can you back up your assertion about verbal abuse.
