Just goes to show how extreme is the mind set of the tea party. What is particularly disturbing are those that sign on to those views since they aspire to the standard of life to which the most extreme have since how else can one support themselves except for some form of income by which they do not have to associate their political and social views with that product or service. Little does he know that amongst their own “crowd” are those closeted men even they are married with children, a dog and a cat and a mortgage. I guess even they are willing to bypass personal behavior beliefs in the quest for political power.
As for HIV and homosexuality, outside the US particularly in Africa the incident of exposure to HIV is predominately a heterosexual occurrence. So maybe homosexuals are more prone to contact HIV but then it might just be said that stupid idiotic judgment is the leading cause of exposure to HIV regardless of sexuality. Maybe, the tea party should file a class action suit about that issue and thus legalize their party out of existence with a caveat as to making it a criminal offense subject to the death penalty
The leader and founder of one of America’s most influential Tea Party groups believes he’s found the final solution the America’s gay problem: A class action lawsuit against homosexuality.
At a Tea Party Unity event yesterday, founder Rick Scarborough, a former Baptist pastor who declared AIDS to be “God’s judgement,” spoke with anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera about the possibility of filing a Big Tabacco-style lawsuit against homosexuality.
“Peter, the whole issue of a class action lawsuit, you and I have talked about this a little bit,” Scarborough reminded LaBarbera, who heads the curiously gay-obsessed group Americans for Truth About Homosexuality. “I just wonder if you’ve explored that, talked to anyone about it.”
Obviously, statistically now even the Centers for Disease Control verifies that homosexuality much more likely leads to AIDS than smoking leads to cancer. And yet the entire nation has rejected smoking, billions of dollars are put into a trust fund to help cancer victims and the tobacco industry was held accountable for that. Any thoughts on that kind of an approach?
“Yeah I think that’s great. I would love to see it,” LaBarbera replied. “We always wanted to see one of the kid in high school who was counseled by the official school counselor to just be gay, then he comes down with HIV. But we never really got the client for that.”
In actuality, the CDC’s latest figures show that homosexual men accounted for 63% of new HIV infections in the US.
Meanwhile, smoking per the CDC “causes an estimated 90% of all lung cancer deaths in men.”
To put that in perspective, there were 11,400 new HIV infections in 2010 among homosexual men. That same year, 440,000 died as a direct result of the adverse health effects from cigarette smoking — or one out of every five deaths.
The more obvious criticism of Scarborough’s lawsuit plan, of course, is that there is no one to sue. Except maybe God.
