Row over councillor's gay 'joke'.

A Conservative councillor who sparked a row when he joked that Noah would have to let gay animals on board if he built his ark today has refused to apologise.

This seems to be one of those stories where everything is head over heels. People are complaining about his 'gay animals' comment which, in the content of the joke is, if not rip-roaringly funny, then not completely offensive.

What seems to go unremarked, and which I think is worse, is when he says "As long as they do it behind closed doors, I don't mind, but now they [homosexuals] control the media, the television. They have much stronger control over this country than they should have."

Now, surely that is the more offensive remark?
