If God Doesn’t Have a Sense of Humor, We’re Screwed

FreyRepublican Bob Frey is a candidate running for a seat in the Minnesota House of Representatives.  Frey says he believes all our social and economic problems have a common cause: “the gay agenda and sodomy.”

In a display of scientific ignorance so startling it’s almost unbelievable, Frey elaborated on “the science and the financial impact of the gay agenda” as follows:

“When you have egg and sperm that meet in conception, there’s an enzyme in the front that burns through the egg.  The enzyme burns through so the DNA can enter the egg.  If the sperm is deposited anally, it’s the enzyme that causes the immune system to fail. That’s why the term is AIDS – acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.”

What whacko could have come up with this stuff?  His goofy misunderstanding of human reproduction is overshadowed by his bizarre theory of AIDS.  You die because of wayward sperm?

Apparently this clown doesn’t know that HIV/AIDS is most commonly transmitted through heterosexual intercourse worldwide.  It’s not a gay disease.  Period.

Over 80 percent of HIV infections in Africa are acquired through heterosexual intercourse.  Most infections in Latin America are acquired through drug injection.  Heterosexual intercourse and drug injection are also the main modes of transmission in both South and South East Asia.  Of all the HIV-positive people in the world, slightly more than half of them are women.

In videotaped testimony before committees in the Minnesota State legislature, and also in a campaign video, Frey says:  “When sperm enters the digestive system, it is quickly absorbed into the blood.  It is the enzyme in the sperm that causes the immune system to fail.  Sodomy is a voluntary act to destroy the immune system that protects us from disease, various cancers, and other health issues.”

So how exactly does sodomy destroy our economy?  According to Frey:  “It’s about sodomy.  It’s huge amounts of money.  AIDS is a long term illness, causing pain, suffering, death.  A long-term illness that’s very expensive to treat… It is about legalizing sodomy, causing avoidable pain, suffering, death, and financial ruin.”

Let’s ignore Frey’s scientific and economic canards.  Let’s talk about our own faith.

There are ample religious grounds to condemn each act of sodomy as wrongdoing.  The Torah says that when a man lies with another man as with a woman it is  just as bad as when a Jew eats a shrimp, carries a bundle of sticks on the Sabbath, or remarries his ex-wife after she has been divorced from someone else.
