Just Pick The Parts You Agree With
In Cindy Zapotocky's testimony against the same-sex marriage bill she said she's also submitting four documents. The first is a letter from 39 religious leaders. An excerpt:
Instead, we believe the most urgent peril is this: forcing or pressuring both individuals and religious organizations—throughout their operations, well beyond religious ceremonies—to treat same-sex sexual conduct as the moral equivalent of marital sexual conduct. There is no doubt that the many people and groups whose moral and religious convictions forbid same-sex sexual conduct will resist the compulsion of the law, and church-state conflicts will result.
Secondly, she submits a writing from a Dr John R. Diggs in which the doctor goes into levels of promiscuity, anal intercourse, oral-anal contact, human waste, fisting and sadism, but only regarding homosexual relationships. The same could be addressed about heterosexuals as well but that's not the purpose of his writing.
Next up is the article from the Spokesman Review about the possible link between the human papillomavirus and increase in oral cancer rates. Again, this sexual behavior is not unique to homosexuals or heterosexuals.
Last of all she submits a copy of "the Book of Genesis from the Holy Bible, the truthful word of the God who created us". Let's hope they don't get overly concerned with moral equivalents and destructive sexual behavior while reading Chapter 19. But Cindy says it's the truthful word of God and that's good enough for me.
