More hideousness from Iowa, now on the airwaves.
Iowa radio host Jan Mickelson has spoken out in defense of Iowa congressional candidate Jeremy Walters’ remarks that AIDS is God’s punishment for homosexuality, the Iowa Independent’s Jason Hancock reports:
Said Mickelson on his radio show:
“For the chairman of the Republican Party to say, ‘AIDS doesn’t discriminate,’ well of course it does. It discriminates against people who engage in stupid behavior…Lung disease doesn’t discriminate, but it’s probably a good idea to stop smoking…Cirrhosis of the liver doesn’t discriminate, but you should probably dry out and stop drinking like you’ve been doing. Heart disease and diabetes doesn’t discriminate, but you should probably take that weight off, lard butt. Of course lifestyle oriented diseases tend to reward those lifestyle afflictions disproportionately to the behavior of those doing them. This isn’t rocket science.”
“So, does God punish homosexuality? Does he punish sodomy? Well, no, he doesn’t get off his throne and say, ‘Hey, I’m gonna get that guy.’ Well not directly. Most of God’s laws, which another way of saying God’s law would be natural law, that is, law that is consistent with the nature of the universe because it was built in such a way, most of God’s laws are self enforcing. God doesn’t have to do anything. So if you skydive without a parachute, does God punish people who do that? No, but one of his inventions does. Gravity. If you skydive without a parachute, you’re going to die. Should you blame God for that?”
Mickelson says promiscuity “defines the lifestyle” of homosexuality: “Homosexuality is intrinsically promiscuous, because it violates the design of our bodies. There is no safe way to do that.”
