Why Colorado’s House Killed Civil Unions Bill: Encouraging Gays To Partner Leads To ‘Spread of AIDS’

Sorry, Colorado gays: Your lawmakers in the State House believe you’re too irresponsible to handle even civil unions. The bill died with a 6-5 vote in the House Judiciary Committee; it passed the State Senate last week with bipartisan support. But it wouldn’t be a legislative debate on gay rights without the religious zealots! The Family Research Institute’s Dr. Paul Cameron, testifying in opposition to the bill, talked about how “every Coloradoan now has basically a $112 AIDS tax from gays in the United States” and how “if you take all your clothes off and stand in front of a mirror, and your plumbing is on the outside, you’re a male,” and you can’t mix and match plumbing like a crazy person. “God does not make mistakes.” But wait until you hear about the Roman orgies!
