A narrow minded ultra conservative group calling themselves Real Women of Canada have sent a scathing letter to Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, lambasting him for speaking out about the persecution of gays in Uganda, Kenya and most recently, Russia.
These zealots would apparently want our government to turn their back when gays are beaten up in the street, jailed and sometimes killed because of their sexual orientation.
Sounds to me like this group should be called the Real Bigots of Canada, considering their myopic and homophobic attitudes.
It seems the whole world is chastising Russia for it’s horrific anti gay laws, yet this group of women are suggesting that we pretend there’s nothing wrong here.
We live in a great country where even groups like this can speak out without fear of persecution.
But that should serve as a stark reminder that millions in other countries are denied those freedoms.
Minister Baird’s intercession on these despicable matters is commendable.
The protestation from the so called ‘Real Women’ is an embarassment .
