The Wildrose’s homophobic “lake of fire” has turned into a tire fire.
It is proving impossible to extinguish.
The latest flare-up came on the weekend when outraged party members used social media to attack Cody Johnston, an openly gay Wildrose staff member, who had innocently said he would attend Saturday’s Pride events in Edmonton.
“What kind of crap is this that you’re mailing out in the name of the Wild Rose (sic) party,” snarled one detractor in a Facebook post made public by Johnston. “This party does not support this kind of life style (sic) and we certainly don’t promote it.”
