No, he said they were 'not good people'. He has backtracked on some of
his statements on homosexuality though not his (IMO) unsavoury views on
building camps for immigrants but remains firmly convinced of the moral
failings of single mothers (inevitable his views on single fathers
remains unknown). Not someone I really want to have representing the
cause of human rights but then I'm just an arrogant Guardian reader :-).

But this is definitely well-OT so I'll leave you to it.
