He loves gays, but hates MardiGras

“I am #1 not homophobic, and #2 I don’t hate the homosexual,” the Christian Democrat Party’s Sydney candidate Peter Madden now says in response to overwhelming criticism of his ‘Battlecry’ War Against Mardi Gras video.

“In actual fact I love homosexuals, just how I love all people. As a Christian, I am commanded to love my neighbour as myself.”

Posted last week, Madden’s video tirade against the annual celebration of love and diversity got over 6,000 views and hundreds of comments calling the confused commentator a homophobic bigot. Catch up with it here.

In an intense ‘response to comments’ video uploaded last night, Madden now explains that his desire to end Mardi Gras stems from concerns about drugs, alcohol and violence among young people who watch the parade:

“I am told by those who have attended the Mardi Gras in previous years that there is more of the drug ecstasy passed around that night than any other night of the year,” he explains. “I’ve been there myself, praying and seeking to reach out to people there on the Mardi Gras night.” Oh right, sounds like he tried a dose.

“We are encouraging young people to a place of sexual immorality and drunkenness, and consequently the testosterone-alcohol mix tends towards violence. The estrogen-alcohol mix tends towards intimacy.” Perhaps he hasn’t seen this video.

“It is a known fact that the human brain does not develop fully until the age of 25,” he adds. No wonder no-one young votes for the Christian Democrats, right Peter?

“What [Mardi Gras] has become is a parade of live porn… The concepts of hyper-tolerance lead to anarchy, and we see that anarchy on the streets of Sydney.”

Madden is trying his best to drop in dodgy scientific concepts – and even invents the concept of ‘hyper-tolerance’ – but he’s actually making it all worse… he sounds more homophobic than ever.

Then at 5:38” in his video, he opens up with a shocking confession which sheds light on his bizarre and worrying actions.

See Peter Madden’s latest rant below, and let us and him know what you think – he clearly reads your comments.

Well. Mardi Gras ~is~ pretty live porn-ish. (and moderately embarassing). Though the rest is daft.

Mardi Gras does not promote alcohol or drug abuse and its not the only evenbt where young people attend where they get drunk - will we be seeing a protest of the same manner about schoolies week from him??

why is it when we have these sort of rants that in the same soeech they equate Mardi Gras to sexual abuse, the destruction of society and how we must protect the children??

Therefore, Peter Madden will now campaign to end New Year's Eve celebrations, parties at the beach and a day at the cricket because each of those has high levels of alcoholic abuse, some level of drug taking (ie caffeine, nicotine) and being exposed to pornographic language (barrackers taunts)

Peter: when you have a sensible idea, come back to us with it please. Perhaps we will recognize it - it will be you saying you've resigned from the CDP and recant all your homophobic, unscientific and ludicrous social engineering waffle.

I await with anti-cip-ation.

People like Madden are impossible to reason with. You can't reason with someone who believes they are fundamentally doing the right thing. They just want their way - they don't want to understand or meet in the middle.

I've just watched Madden's latest vid rant. Disgusting. He says he "does'nt hate homosexuals ". He then launches into a trirade against under age drinking.I don't have a problem with banning this but he makes no mention of their parents it's all Mardi Gras's fault!
He then goes on to slander Mardi Gras with paedophilia and his own sexual abuse as a child, but makes no mention of the widespread abuse by priests and other clergy against children. Funny that.
You do hate gays Peter otherwise you would'nt be saying what you are.
I di think that the best thing to do was to ignore this creep as his rant is obviously an attempt to get publicity for his candidacy in the march NSW state elections.
But his rant is so nasty and slanderous to GLBTI people I'm wondering if we should ignore him and what we should do.
What do people think?

You should always choose your battles well, this is one of those times.

I couldnt be bothered watching the Troll.

So was the person who sexually abused him a Mardi Gras attendee then ? No because it wasnt around then when you were a child.

Agree ignore the moron. He has buried himself and now trying to reverse out of his first rant. No vote from me.

Australia is nowhere near the levels of depravity the Roman Empire reached, nor the Babylonian or Persian. It's not even that overridden with violence and drugs and alcohol- if he wants to do good in the world, he should go to an English city, where 12 year old kids get drunk on weekdays for funsies and in German cities 15 year olds snort coke.

Virgindirk

Virgindirk said on the 25th Jan, 2011

This guys has to be a closet case!

Out of all the 'sexual immoralities' in the world mardi gras and the 'homosexual agenda' are the only things he seems to be making a song and dance about. In his videos he dosnt seem to actually offer any method on how to go about banning mardi gras or to stop the drunkeness and the drug taking he rather seems to focus soley on mardi gras itself. Does he seriously think anyone would believe he attends mardi gras to just to 'reach out and pray to people' ?

If you don't like mardi gras then dont turn up!

It's like when people say "No offence.." but then say something offensive.
"I am NOT homophobic, I just think that they will destroy our society with sex and drugs if we let them out in public. I do NOT agree with locking them up, but I think if we put them all in cages then our children will be safe".

I don't think providing him with any more publicity will do anybody any good. Ignore him, starve him of attention he so obviously needs (and is probably jealous of MardiGras for getting) and he'll fade back into obscurity.

I am a fully fledged Lesbian, but I personally feel that the Mardo Gras does nothing but prove to the Christians that we are nothing mroe than a bunch of immoral yobbos. Why there has to be so much depravity involved in 'celebrating' our sexuality is beyond me. Personally, I live my life as 'normally' as I can, raising our kids with good strong morals that a lot Christian homes don't even have - we are the kind of people the anti-gay movement should be seeing MORE of, not the bunch of half dressed drugged out nitwits that parade around the street using children's toys as sick props. Maybe when the Gay community 'grows up', we may find more acecptance and less resistance.

Iratei said on the 25th Jan, 2011

you have an interesting point there heartforhome but I fear that as long as sexual orientation discrimination will exist, then so will the flagrant celebration of all that is gay.

It's just sex ffs

Maybe you should be spending more time and energy educating the parents of these drunken teenagers. If they were at least half decent parents there children would be at home and definatly not drinking. And by the way the last 3 times i have been to mardi gras i have not seen any drunken 13, 14 and 15 year olds nor any alcohol fueled violence. Why don't we see you at all the music festivals such as big day out where drug taking and alcohol fueled violence is rife as well as New years day celebrations and Australia day celebrations. You are a dead set Bigot. How about we protest outside your church on sunday mornings and at easter and christmas. Protest about your rights and your beliefs. You and your fans can gather to celebrate your beliefs and you have no protests you are left alone to live your lives the way you choose to. How about showing us the same respect considering you love homosexuals so much.

blaah said on the 25th Jan, 2011



What exactly are you saying? Child sexual abuse is widespread amongst clergy across the world including Australia.
In most cases they believe they are above the law and in practice they seem to get away with crimes that (rightly) you and I would'nt be able to.
Stop defending these religious grubs!

I think its hilarious that he compares homosexuality to compulsive infidelity. Sex addiction (though a very real condition) is a term often exploited to vindicate a person's lack of self control. You choose to go out and fornicate with everything with a pulse, you don't choose to be gay. What a jerk!

Thoroughly unpleasant little man. You have to wonder what is there in his own background to make him so bitter & twisted? Although in many ways it is better to have this stuff out in the open where it can be rationally debated & expunged. That said I can't wait to see someone chroma-key out the background as he will be left with an entirely approapriate ghoulish green halo.
