Move Over Sally Kern meet Tom Lukiwski another homophobic asshole

Down in the states Sally Kern's ridiculous offensive tragically ignorant remarks about homosexuality have been causing an uproar.

As of yesterday Canada has it's own Sally. Tom Lukiwski a Saskatchewan progressive conservative member of Parliament has been exposed on a 1991 tape saying that:
"Well, let me put it to you this way. There's A's and there's B's. The A's are guys like me. The B's are homosexual faggots with dirt on their fingernails that transmit diseases,"
Tom has apologised twice however to me these apologies ring hollow and forced. This is a man trying to save his political career. Now some would defend Tom by saying that the remarks were made in 1991 and may not reflect him as a person today. I would argue that as the general manager of the provincial Progressive Conservative party at the time the man was already in politics as such he should be held to his statements and should resign immediately as member of Parliament.

If he has said such hateful things about French or any other minority group he would have been run out of Parliament already.

Tom Lukiwski Should resign for his anti gay statements.

Check out the CBC website for the video and more information.
