There have been several discussions amongst the group over
the past few weeks on the subject of Dave's views on homosexuality,
but even after the latest one we're still confused.
Previously, he passed comment on gay marriages, but fans
and housemates weren't sure if he actually condemned the concept,
or just couldn't support it due to his religion.
Today, Caoimhe tried to pin the born-again Christian down
on his views, but it just riled him into getting defensive.
Josie started things off by questioning that if God truly
loves everyone, shouldn't people be able to go with whoever
they want. However, Dave just said in response: "I'm
not even gonna' answer that... I've come in here to demonstrate
the love of God; it doesn't matter who they are".
When Caoimhe brought-up the Pope's recent comment about same-sex
marriages and abortion being the two most insidious and dangerous
things facing the world today, Dave stated that the Pope isn't
his leader, Jesus Christ is.
John James then quizzed Dave, asking the 39-year-old former
wild man if he's just being careful with giving his opinion
because he's in the Big Brother House. In response Dave said,
somewhat vaguely: "My opinion is this: that God is love,"
before criticising Caoimhe for being angry towards him and
But hang on Dave, you still haven't made your views
As the conversation became ever more heated, Dave clarified
that he wouldn't marry two men, but then claimed that he's
close to the people in the House who've admitted committing
homosexual acts, referring to gay peer Mario and bisexual
"I think it's fair to say, that obviously being a born
again Christian and reading the scripture, I would believe
that homosexuality is wrong. That's obvious," he snapped
when Caoimhe kept on pushing.
The thing is, seeing as the Bible says that man shall not
lie with man (or whatever), isn't it a bit hypocritical for
Dave to be so friendly towards Mario, and to literally lay
and cuddle/ play with the hair of Ben and Mario all the time?
Dave will doubtless excuse his behaviour by saying that he
loves everyone, but the more sceptical fans will
say he's just playing the game and trying to appear non-judgemental
in a bid to stay-in for longer.
