(FTA): "Walesa's son said he was shocked by his father's words, which "should not have been said."
"Gays, lesbians, the homosexuals, have the right to have a representation and should be" in Parliament, said Jaroslaw Walesa, who is a European Parliament lawmaker."
Good to know the father's prejudice wasn't passed on to his son. Also nice to know the Parliament doesn't support prejudice and reacted by demonstrating their acceptance of thier gay members.
