A Republican state senator from Iowa claimsÂ gay people are hazardous to his familyâs health:
SenatorÂ Dennis Guth, who quoted Tea Party darlingÂ Dr. Ben Carson, ofÂ IowaÂ told his colleagues in the Iowa Senate that there âare health risks that my family incurs because of the increase of sexually transmitted infections that this lifestyle invites.â
Senator Guth, who says he has served on the board of directors ofÂ Bob Vander PlaatsâÂ Family LeaderÂ anti-gay organization,Â also falsely claimed that âthere are more and more medical tests required before giving blood or giving birth,â as if that is the fault of gay people.
The Family LeaderÂ saysÂ it is closely associated with bothÂ Focus on the FamilyÂ and the anti-gay hate group,Â Family Research Council.
âThe media, for the most part, has bamboozled us into thinking that having a relationship outside of the boundaries of monogamous, heterosexual marriage is positive, happy and fulfilling,â Guth said.
Sounds like his family must be spending time at all those glory holes that I’ve seen at truck stops along Interstate 80 in Iowa.
