The Repug U.S. House Rep. from California will never have to worry about Marine “unit cohesion” again if The Rev. R. Albert Mohler Jr. of New York has his way (and this nut resides in a “blue” state? Horrors!).
It seems that the head of a Baptist seminary there has determined somehow that homosexuality is biologically based, which is actually a pretty enlightened thought for some of these troglodytes. However, Mohler then states that “prenatal treatment to reverse gay orientation would be biblically justified.”
I know Jennifer Chrisler of Family Pride made the following observation already in the article, but I’m going to build on it a bit.
Putting aside the fact that it is ludicrous (to say nothing of highly dangerous) to perform some kind of invasive, pre-natal surgery to try and remove “gayness” from an infant, aren’t Mohler and his ilk, along with culprits from other faiths, the ones who are putting up the biggest roadblocks when it comes to funding embryonic stem cell research?
Since the fundies aren’t going to be successful in stopping gay marriage apparently, then it looks like they’re going to try and find a way to try and eliminate the gay before anyone ever gets a chance to risk a romantic union with anyone else (I guess they got a hold of a copy of “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley…I hate to break the news to them, but it's a work of fiction).
And one more thing: I want to emphasize that, though I do not personally support gay marriage, I do support same-sex civil unions with all attendant legal rights (GLBT folks should have every opportunity to mess up their relationships, deal with bratty kids and ruin their credit with debt just like heterosexuals do :- ).
