Welsh Secretary David Jones should resign after television comments that many percieve to be homophobic.

On 15th February 2013 David Jones, Secretary of State for Wales stated on television that same sex couples clearly cannot provide a warm and safe environment in which to raise children.

The Welsh secretary told ITV: "I regard marriage as an institution that has developed over many centuries, essentially for the provision of a warm and safe environment for the upbringing of children, which is clearly something that two same-sex partners can't do."

In a statement after the interview, Mr Jones added: "I made the point of stressing that I was fully supportive of committed same-sex relationships. I also strongly approve of civil partnerships."

Government representatives should not be nurturing this apparant homophobic view.
