FredNilex180The other day, I wrote about Australian pastor and MP Fred Nile, who made this insane claim opposing adoption rights by gay couples:

Addressing the packed public meeting, Christian Democratic Party leader Reverend Fred Nile said the bill could deter women thinking of adopting out their child and “lead to the tragedy of abortion”.

“Any mother putting up her baby for adoption would never imagine that their baby would be brought up by two male homosexuals or two female lesbians,” he said.

“Is this really an ideological issue or homosexuals demanding yet another human right?

So this news isn’t all that surprising:

The Reverend Fred Nile, a Christian Democrat MP in New South Wales, Australia, said that porn accessed on a parliamentary computer under his log-on likely resulted from official research and not someone “sitting there perving.”

According to The Herald Sun, the parliamentary audit turned up close to 200,000 hits, which Nile blamed on research for his efforts to tame the porn industry.

“He said the porn site research was used for questions, speeches, and bills, including the federal Labor government’s internet filter plan,” reported the Sun.


That kind of committed research could leave a man raw, if you know whadda mean.

Wait, I think I’ve heard of this sort of “research” before, somewhere.
