Tory Councillor Suspended for Anti-Gay remarks

A Conservative county councillor said he was "saddened" after being suspended from his party over remarks he made regarding homosexuality.

Patrick Clark, the former deputy Conservative group leader for Derbyshire County Council, was suspended from his group on Wednesday.

It followed an article he had written in the Duffield Scene newsletter, in which he stated: "I object to being required to embrace an agenda that actively supports and positively discriminates in favour of people who I consider to be sexual deviants and who engage in practices contrary to my religious beliefs."
