To make it clear and crystal to all reading this thread.

Nobody associated with this site or those making comments or the OP of the article are insinuating anything untoward about the Minister or anything regarding him.

The OP is asking the question if the Minister is aware of the views and opinions of Mr. Tatchell in light of his admiration and acknowledgment of him regarding the tweet of him and Mr. Tatchell at a Gay Pride Event.


Many Concerned members of the public would like the Minister to state that he cannot condone those views that Mr. Tatchell has held in the past.

Presumably anybody working with children in their job would have to be vetted by An Garda Síochána. There is legislation on it.

True..

But its an ineffective system relying heavily on people's honesty.. A form is filled in.. And that's about it.. It's not a rigorous background check.


Which is what it should be..

A contender for a Children's Minister who associates with a sleezoid and completely reprehensible campaigner for adults to have legal sexual relations with children, under 10's in Tatchells case, should be excluded instantly.. for starters..a background check, a real one, might be interesting here ... Any other 'campaigns' or sympathies we the taxpayers and citizens need to know about..?

I don't want to be ruled by a diseased degenerate Court of Caligulas.. I'm not gay, I don't want the homosexual agendas to be first and foremost in everything..

Let me be honest now.

I have seen... at first hand... what happens when the likes of Tatchell and his fellow travellers have their harmless fun with vulnerable children and young people seeking love and support.. They destroy their lives .. Wasn't creepy old Norris on about adults having sex with very young people too.. I have read that article.

New Minister for Children Roderic O'Gorman at Dublin Pride 2018 with controversial author Peter Tatchell.

'To challenge "the assumption that all sex involving children and adults is abusive" is courageous.'





Ireland's new Minister for Children Roderic O'Gorman is on the left. Peter Tatchell is in the green shirt beside him.


Tatchell is a prominent gay British LGBT activist who ran for the Labour Party in the 80’s and then joined the British Green party in 2004. He is a patron of Elly Barnes’ Educate and Celebrate institution.



According to their website, Educate and Celebrate is ‘an experienced team of teachers and youth workers who have all made their own schools LGBT+Friendly, giving them the knowledge to deliver throughout the UK, the Channel Islands, Europe and globally.’ Elly Barnes, the founder is a recommend resource for INTO (Teachers Union and Org) and their LGBT education material "Different Families, Same Love" which is aimed at Primary school kids.

In 2011, Tatchell in a now deleted post on his website (archived) claimed that schoolchildren should be taught fellatio and cunnilingus, as a ‘safe’ option.



In 2016, Tatchell was named as winner of the James Joyce Award 2016 and the recipient of an Honorary Fellowship from University College Dublin.

In June, 2018, Tatchell was the name attraction to the Dublin LGBTQ Pride Political Debate 2018, along with Fintan Warfield (SF), Justin McAleese (FF & Mary's Son), Martin Conway (FG) and Sara Phillips of TENI (Trans Equality Network Ireland). Here they discussed the reformation of Ireland's sex education laws.

Tatchell has advocated lowering the age of consent to 14.

Perhaps Tatchell's most controversial statement is the one he made in a letter to the Guardian in 1997. Images of this letter are shared below.

The quality of either image isn't great but you can clearly see in the first paragraph he agrees with the statement that to challenge "the assumption that all sex involving children and adults is abusive" is courageous.




In the letter he also stated that several of his friends "gay and straight, male and female had sex with adults from the ages of nine to thirteen" and that none feel they were abused — "it gave them great joy".



Tatchell claims his letter was heavily edited but he never sued. According to The Mail he apologised for the letter and said the book he was referring to was not 'a paedophile handbook' but written by psychologists and anthropologists.

In this tweet he suggests he meant not all sex between children and other children is abusive, unwanted & harmful,” but you can clearly see in his original letter he said "sex involving children and adults".




Peter Tatchell wrote a chapter in the controversial book Betrayal of Youth (1986). According to a Daily Mail article, ‘The book’s editor was Warren Middleton, a prominent activist with the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), the notorious lobby group formed in the Seventies to campaign for the ‘rights’ of predatory sex offenders….Also in the book was an essay by PIE activist Roger Moody entitled: How To Make Paedophilia Acceptable, followed by a screed by Beatrice Faust, a radical Australian feminist who worked closely with Germaine Greer. In Tatchell's chapter he advocated lowering the age of consent. You can read it here.

Here's a glossary of the book's contents. It speaks for itself.

Tatchell was the first person I thought of when I saw O'Gorman's appointment.

No coincidence the first spew out of Gormless's mouth was to call for "hate crime" legislation.

Can't have pesky parents asking any questions, can we?

You know the score. The Irish media won't touch the story, so it falls to us on social media to propagate the details. Has happened before recently.. remember Keelings? Nationalists on Twitter got that one going.

MSM only started reporting on it because it had spread like wildfire on social media, WhatsApp etc.

Expect the LGBT lobby to come out swinging on this one so expect all sorts of pushback and accusations, including accusations and denunciations of 'witchhunts' against gays, etc. That PantiPerson was pictured with Tatchell also.

"Man Boy Love" along with the Trannies was an important part of the "Gay Liberation movement" back in the 1970s.

Of course AIDS forced them to wind their necks in.

Oscar Wilde given the ages of some of the boys he was exploiting would have actually been locked up if caught longer than he was back than. Yet he is still a hero to the "Gay Liberation Movement" as is Alan Ginsberg.

Sure. but paedophila? Not even Norris could worm his way out of that one, and he is the grandaddy of the Irish homo lobby.

He ended up on radio, explaining the difference between classical pederasty, which he approved of and paedophilia. Not where you want to be.
