I'm annoyed. First, Iowa candidate for Congress, Jeremy Walters made remarks on his Facebook page about AIDS: "The Holy Bible say(sic) if your(sic) "GAY" homosexual they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them" & etc., then he apologized, and now Iowa talk radio host Jan Mickelson is jumping in with his two (non)cents, defending Walters' position. From the Iowa Independent:
When a caller brought up that it's promiscuity that increases the risk for AIDS, and therefore Mickelson should support legalized same-sex marriage because it would lower promiscuity in the gay community, the host scoffed, saying promiscuity "defines the lifestyle."
I love that this guy seems to know all about the "designs of our bodies" and yet doesn't seem to care about reality, science, experience or dialog. When is this meme going to end?
This train of thought is offensive to all God-believing people for one very simple reason: this argument makes God look stupid. The "punishment" simply isn't working.
