Jacob Rees-Mogg attacked same-sex relationships in the university paper


Jacob Rees-Mogg, Conservative MP for North East Somerset, commented in his student newspaper that he did not consider same-sex relationships as acceptable in the university environment. The Brexit-backing politician actively opposed same-sex marriages and LGBT rights in general while in parliament. The comments came in an article on Margaret Thatcher’s Section 28 – a law which which stated that a local authority “shall not intentionally promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality” or “promote the teaching in any maintained school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship.” He added that LGBT issues are not what coincides with Christian values. Other commenters in the story took more progressive views, however, with one commenting “it doesn’t bother me because it doesn’t affect me;” while another said “If people want to live together, that’s fine by me.”
