Mike Frey testified before the Minnesota House of Representatives today on the marriage equality bill. Frey portrayed himself as a concerned father and husband. He spewed bigotry cloaked as ignorant pseudo-science.
 
Frey is dreadfully frightened by and obsessed about gay sex. Maybe he should seek counseling about his obsession and fascination if it troubles him this much.
 
He considers marriage equality to be about gay sex. It isn't. Marriage equality is about love, commitment and responsibility. But for bigots like Frey, such distinctions are ignored.
 
Check out his pseudo-science below the flaming orange squiggle...

In Frey's fevered mind, AIDS occurs as a result of gay anal sex. Hetero sex that takes place in a vagina is somehow different to Frey. I don't completely understand Frey's reasoning, but that's probably because he's a anal sex obsessed right wing nut job. I would bet that Frey has no idea that hetero sex is the main transmission method of HIV/AIDS.

His conclusion is moronic as I've diagrammed below:

  1. Marriage equality = gay, anal sex
  2. Gay, anal sex causes HIV/AIDS
  3. HIV/AIDS is very expensive to treat
  4. Therefore, marriage equality will spread HIV/AIDS
  5. Therefore, please oppose marriage equality.
The stupid it hurts, but please please please please please please please make this moron the spokesmodel of right wing bigotry.

People like Glenn Gruenhagen and Mike Frey are God's gift to MNUnited and the DFL.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
