Jules needs to do a quick head count:
1) are there more gay activists or smokers in this country?
2) And who's raising the most revenue?
As a smoking person, I am deeply offended at Gillard's decision to withdraw from speaking at the Australian Christian Lobby because she believes that smoking is more harmful to people's health than homosexual acts.
This is offensive, heartless and wrong. It's really disgraceful, and Gillard should be forced to apologise to the smoking community immediately.
As co-convenor of the Australian Conservative Rainbow Smoking Lobby, I denounce her comments as smokophobic in the worst degree. Haven't we progressed at all in this country?
