Joseph Farah at the WorldNutDaily has his panties in a bunch over MRSA, a non-venereal disease which is becoming an increasing problem outside the hospital.
According to a study done at the University of California, San Francisco, homosexual men are 13 times more likely to contract the disease, which is documented to spread in skin-to-skin contact.
That means it could easily spread to the general population. When it does, the results could be cataclysmic.
“Once this reaches the general population, it will be truly unstoppable,” explains Binh Diep, the researcher who led the study.
Holy paranoid exaggeration, Batman! It’s true that MRSA (the evolved form of Staph. Aureus) is a significant concern, and that we need to monitor the situation closely. MRSA, however, has been showing up on high school football fields for years, among other places. The spread to “the general population” has already happened. Farah’s remedy? This has to be seen to be believed.
I have a profound question to ask: Isn’t it time to make anal sex taboo, again?
I mean, look what we have learned over the last 20 years!
What do you suppose is riskier – smoking or anal sex?
That’s right. Anal sex is far more dangerous. Those practicing it live far shorter lives and frequently die more painful deaths.
Yet, it’s increasingly more difficult to find a place to have a smoke than it is to have homosexual sex.
That’s right, ban anal intercourse, and the MRSA problem will just go away. Sweet. Plus it gives Farah an excuse to smoke another cigarette (hmm, bet he can’t wait to wrap his lips around that long, round shaft, eh?). Legalize smoking, and ban anal sex, and the world will be a better, if smellier, place. Sure, homosexuals will continue to have sex, just like smokers continue to smoke, but, well, uh…hmmmm.
Farah seems to have overlooked a measure that actually would help reduce the spread of MRSA: gay marriage. If two gay men are in a committed, faithful relationship, instead of being forced to roam around looking for sexual satisfaction via promiscuous relationships, then that’s one vector that will be a dead end. The risk posed by MRSA is a risk that is exacerbated by sectarian and narrow-minded opposition to gay marriage.
Yes MRSA is a concern and yes we should do what we can to curb the spread of this newly-evolved disease. Passing laws against it isn’t going to help, but we can create a society in which sexually-transmitted diseases are at least curbed somewhat by the emotional and social constraints raised by the institution of marriage. Opposition to gay marriage is no longer just bigoted. It’s also self-destructive.
