A former Katter's Australian Party candidate says he has quit the party over its response to homophobic comments.
Victorian candidate Tess Corbett withdrew her nomination, after causing controversy for comparing gay people with paedophiles.
Queensland Senate nominee Bernard Gaynor had his party membership suspended for saying he would not let a gay person teach his children at school.
Darren Hunt, who was the party's candidate for Cairns at the Queensland election last year, says the party should have dismissed the comments and made it clear they did not represent party policy.
"I love the way that Bob Katter's passionate about regional Queensland and what he wanted to achieve," he said.
"But unfortunately in relation to recent events in relation to homophobic and other comments that are being made, I can't agree with them, and the response to those comments was unacceptable for me."
Mr Gaynor says the party has pushed back a meeting to discuss his membership until next Friday.
He says the party should be supporting his views.
"Mr Hunt can resign over my views that a parent should be able to choose who teaches their children, that's entirely up to him," he said.
"Obviously he disagrees with me and he thinks that a parent shouldn't be able to choose who teaches their children."
