Podcast: Eusebius McKaiser Questions Stephen Mulholland on His Views About Homosexuality

A Bantu in My BathroomEusebius McKaiser, author of A Bantu in My Bathroom, talked to Stephen Mulholland about his views on homosexuality, which Mulholland wrote about in an article in Business Day.

In the article Mulholland said that there’s a need for “same-sex parents to be frank with their children that such arrangements are neither the norm nor ultimately desirable” as society becomes more accepting of same-sex relationships. McKaiser and others vented their anger and frustration about these statements on various media, with McKaiser questioning Mulholland about his views on Talk Radio 702, and thereafter penning an article in response to that interview in the Cape Argus.

Listen to the podcast:

In a weekend newspaper, former journalist Stephen Mulholland asserted that homosexual relationships “are neither the norm nor ultimately desirable”. It is important to deconstruct Mulholland’s publicly flaunted bigotry.

I say his view is asserted because arguments – even poor ones – require supporting premises and evidence before they can be called an argument. It was only during an interview with me on 567 Cape Talk and Talk Radio 702 that he fully exposed his dated self: homosexuality, I was told, correlates with psychiatric challenges; furthermore, many straight parents experience mental anguish when they learn of a child who is gay.
