    The organization called "Campaign for Conscience" have launched a website against David Norris' bid for the Irish Presidency.

    The website (http://www.davidnorris4president.com/) focusses on how the Trinity Senator was born "in the Belgian Congo", is homosexual and the website focusses especially on Norris' remarks about "sex with minors" which the site says are "worrying" and refers to a Magill article from 2002 to infer Norris endorses paedophilia.

    In an interview with the Magill Magazine in 2002, interviewer Helen Lucy Burke said that she "found some of his views on sexual matters deeply disturbing, notably on sex with minors." During the course of the interview, David said that he "felt there can be something to be said for" classic paedophilia. David clarifies further what he means in the article, which can be found at http://sites.google.com/site/norrisarticle/, but many a reader is left with no other option than to feel that perhaps David Norris views on sex are far more liberal than his or her own.
    In a page asking if people should be concerned with a homosexual President the page (which is also referred to on the site as "How David lives") says homosexuality is "Denounced in Scripture", "Is a lifestyle which has particular heath risks (for example AIDS)", "Is a lifestyle which is often associated with sexual promiscuity" and "Is a lifestyle for which there is no genetic evidence".

    The Campaign for Conscience group are led by the Burke family which recently protested against the Civil Unions legislation outside Leinster House and Phoenix Park. The organisation are believed to be closely associated with other religious groups including Coir.

    Its Coir that are scary!!!
    When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity.

    Just to somewhat confirm the 'classic paedophilla' views in the article he did leap to the defence of Cathal O'Searchaigh in the Senate even though anyone watching that documentary could see that he preyed on teenage boys.

    I predicted on this board that Norris's Magill interview would inevitably be brought up if he decided to run for President. Norris can hardly be surprised.

    He did. However personally,
    I like Norris, despite his general
    politics - and as someone on here
    once remarked, I'd love to be a
    fly on the wall should he ever
    have to welcome someone like
    Admedinejad to Ireland.

    Like the pee flynn comment about Mary Robinson, this will do his campaign more good than harm. Keep it up Coir, it's good that they remind us of what a nasty, uncharitable society they want.
