Paul Rimmer, a former UKIP candidate, has said that Liverpool FC is cursed by God because the club attended this year’s Liverpool Pride.
He said on Facebook: “From the Bible, Sodomy defiles a Nation. Those who promote it will be punished & vomited out of the Land. In 2012 Liverpool FC sponsored the City’s Gay Pride Parade. Unless they repent they will be under a continual curse.
“Liverpool were amazing last year, but the title was denied them.
“Everyone knows homosexuality is wrong, but now we have to pretend its nice and normal and anyone who points out it’s a perversion is evil. This is a deep moral and spiritual sickness in our nation.”
Mr Rimmer stood as a UKIP candidate in 2011 before being kicked out of the party for having been a member of the BNP. He stood for the English Democrats this year and received 60 votes.
