I refer to what evangelist Tom Brown said during his address to the River of Love in Żebbuġ, as reported in The Sunday Times of Malta on June 14, namely that “gay persons are mentally ill”.

Our foundation deplores such unjust criticism on a particular group of our society – we see this as an insult to the LGBTI community and people with mental health issues.

There is absolutely no medical or scientific evidence linking mental illness to sexual orientation. Such unfounded personal opinions do no good to members of society who may be combating mental health issues.
