Homosexuality = Murder?

That's what a Colorado Republican crackpot claims in the latest outburst from the mini-ayatollahs on the right. Really, there is quite a pattern developing here, with Oklahoma's Sally Kern having called homosexuality more dangerous than terrorism, state senator Chris Buttars in Utah having concurred last week and Charlice Byrd, a Georgia Republican legislator trying to stop professors from teaching about human sexuality -- including of course homosexuality -- in to full-grown adults at universities in that state. Not sure if it's their last gasp or not, but we're seeing these eruptions all over the place. The Colorado guy, State Senator Scott Renfroe, also thinks women should be serving men:

Renfroe called homosexuality an "abomination" and an "offense to God" and argued that God created men and women so they would procreate.

He compared the nuclear family structure to the Holy Trinity and, quoting the book of Genesis, said women had been created to be "helpers" for men.
