UK NEWS: UKIP ELECTION CANDIDATE WINSTON MCKENZIE SAYS ‘GAY ADOPTION IS CHILD ABUSE’

Winston McKenzie

The culture spokesmen for The UK Independence Party (UKIP) Winston McKenzie has said that placing children with gay or lesbian couples is “child abuse”.

The former boxer who is currently standing in the Croydon North by-election on Thursday, told the Metro newspaper:

To say to a child, ‘I am having you adopted by two men who kiss regularly but don’t worry about it’ – that is abuse.

“It is a violation of a child’s human rights because that child has no opportunity to grow up under normal circumstances.”

A caring loving home is a heterosexual or single family. I don’t believe [a gay couple] is healthy for a child.”

In response to McKenzie’s controversial views  Ben Summerskill (chief executive of gay rights charity Stonewall) said:

“These 19th Century views are not acceptable in the 21st Century.”

I don’t foresee Winston McKenzie winning many votes come Thursday.

Your thoughts please….

  1. Hmmm, I don’t know about him not getting the votes. He forgets that all the troubled and abondoned children were brought into this world by same ‘heterosexual’ ‘happy’ families. Smh

  2. I don’t really think it’s 19th views. I think it’s a 21st century views which is finally out in the open more people than you would think, think along these lines but are too afraid to say it. I personally don’t like gays adopting children and I will say it to gays, but the line about it being child abuse is going too far.

  3. @Chico-Rei, if may, why don’t you like Gays adopting children ( just out of curiosity and not to spark a heinous debate lol!), since I don’t really “care” who adopt a child as long is loved and well looked after etc….

    and like Lati pointed out “….the troubled and abandoned children were brought into this world by same ‘heterosexual’ ‘happy’ families”.

  4. @Nubiahbella I don’t like because I feel the children will grow up messed up, thinking they are gay even if they aren’t. To be honest I hate it when people say as long as it’s loved and in loving home it’s OK because it’s not always the case. I’m a little bias, being fostered.

  5. I’ll be voting on Thursday, but it definitely will not be for him. I don’t have a problem with gay people adopting. I’m sick of children being abused, abandoned and in the care system. If gay people want to love and raise them, so be it. Gay children don’t grow up wanting to turn out straight being raised by heterosexual parents, I don’t support the theory that being raised by a gay couple will confuse them.

  6. As for his caring home is in a heterosexual family, tell that to the woman on the birth board I frequent who posted today she got punched in the face while holding her baby by her man. Where does he come off with the idea that man + woman = a happy home. It’s a bunch of crap. Does he not read or watch the news? There are functional AND dysfunctional gays, lesbians and straight people the world over.

  7. People seem to be missing the point, regardless of the conditions of some children coming out of heterosexual households, the traditional heterosexual structure of the family unit is what has been the steady sure cornerstone and foundation of society. Folks are simply being downloaded daily with with new ideas, morals and opinions that automatically bring them into a zone where they will readily accept “new normals”.

    It is so easy for the media to lead people to draw the conclusions that they want them to draw. They highlight a few cases of abuse and then make it seem like it is an epidemic. Wasn’t this the same media that told you that Sadam Hussain had weapons of mass destruction? Why would you even trust the accounts of an establishment who have been proven to be liars time and time again? The media only tells the truth when they are forced to and even then they will still attempt some sort of spin on it.

    Support homosexuals(no, I will not refer to them as gay because they are not all happy) adopting children and the family unit begins to crumble. From there expect society to become disfunctional.and broken(look around you already). Homosexuals adopting children is simply one of the signs that society that has cancer and is dying.

  8. Aren’t the UKIP a right wing fascist party who are against immigration? We all know these types of parties are often racist so why is he representing them….*smh*

  9. I agree with verbs. I very open and listen to people’s opinons about alots of things, but gays adopting children……….. to me can never be a good thing, with children it’s monkey see, monkey do. I’m fed up of the idea being rammed down the publics throat and then we’re expected to accept it. I hate the idea always have and always will, and what is worse is to support the claim suddenly you get all this rubbish about how families are falling apart etc, this is the same claim Asians use to support forced arrange marriages.

  10. Interesting… I will just say that even though i’m not against homosexuals. Because it’s not any of my business.. But i would prefer that a child be raised by a man and a woman. In that kind of family structure. Or shall i say healthy family structure…. One thing i have learned from my brother is….you don’t want to be homosexual…you just are. And no one can make you gay…you have to just be it… Interesting i say… But i hear you all…..

  11. It’s not what he is saying its the way he is saying it. This society loves to promote things that go against nature then act like something is wrong with you if you object. Children who are in the system and need to be adopted or fostered should be placed as close to their ‘natural’ family environment as possible. It was not their fault they didn’t get a chance to grow up within such a unit so every effort should be made to allow them to experience a bit of normalcy after all the disruption. That includes race, religion, nationally etc.

    As it is not natural for Homosexuals to have children i don’t think they should be top of the list for adoption. They should be allowed to foster children who identify themselves as homosexual, because then they will be a help, rather than a hinderance or embarrassment, which maybe the case in some instances.

  12. lati :
    It’s interesting he is more against gay men adopting and not gay women.

    That’s a classic divide and conquer argument. They have a personal preference of lesbians over gay men. That’s like white people preference for chinese and Korean over black people lol! people truly think they are the ones who can share sweets with the crowd. Now we have black racist jumping into the fray ha ha ha.

    I understand people are entitled to their opinions and that’s okay .

    I find it hard to validate black westerner’s voice against gay adoption .Purely because black brits and black americans do not have a good track record of keeping families together .

    Melissa ,

    I get it my opinion isn’t popular around here and that’s cool .Thank god black people aren’t monolithic.

    One of the top criteria is income ( middle class de preference ).This means black people are immediately out of the picture .Add to this the fact that there are fewer black couple than there white ones. Most black people do not live in upscale neighborhoods and most of them avoid the countryside ( we know why ). Yup! add more stereotypes in the mix and you can say buh bye to adoption.

    you need to remember that misgenation was considered “against nature” not long ago too. I hate to tell this to black people but this new generation of parents will produce their share of gay offsprings .It is time to tone down that hatred because its pointless. Raise the baby to be an outstanding citizen.

    Infertile couples can find a surrogate, women have access to sperm banks and IVF is a standard procedure these days when your chances of having a baby are limited. There would be a heck lot more couples without babies if they didn’t have those options. Its perfectly natural for anyone gay or hetero to feel the need to be a parent. Lesbians actually have eggs and gay men have sperma.Hard to believe right ? lol!

    Lastly , I for one would not kill my son if he turns out to be gay . He is blood and I made him . And of course I’ll deeply resent people who trample over his basic rights should if he happens to be gay .

  14. None of your comments remotely relate to anything i said. I wasn’t referring to your opinion merely giving mine.

    The point – in case you missed it – is that TOGETHER homosexual people cannot naturally procreate, so should not be TOP of the list for adoption.

    Please let me know who mentioned killing a gay child, I cannot find that part anywhere here.

    I didn’t say they can procreate together I said like hetero couples who cannot procreate together they have the right to enjoy the privileges of parenthood everyone take for granted.creating a baby doesn’t make one a parent , raising one does. A body is just a vessel. Essentially your argument has little value .
