Wingnut suggests labeling gays

The leader of a Christian lobby group seems to think that ass-fucking is as dangerous as chain-smoking and that gays should therefore receive a warning label:

"We put warning labels on cigarette packs because we know that smoking takes one to two years off the average life span, yet we 'celebrate' a lifestyle that we know spreads every kind of sexually transmitted disease and takes at least 20 years off the average life span according to the 2005 issue of the revered scientific journal Psychological Reports," Rev. Bill Banuchi, executive director of the New York Christian Coalition told the Mid Hudson News.

What does he want, a rainbow badge on every gay person? A "This deviant lifestyle may be hazardous to your health" disclaimer?

Personally, I think it's time to start labeling hateful fundamentalists. I was going to make a crack about putting a red symbol consisting of multiple concentric circles on them, but that wouldn't be very nice and besides, we lib'rul peaceniks wouldn't hurt a fly, let alone a fundamentalist.

I think a simple "Warning: Contains high levels of intolerance" sticker should suffice.

    Yeah it's funny because during the 2000 Republican presidential nomination one of the candidates, Gary Bauer, said that gay sex was three times more dangerous than smoking. First they want to ban gay men from donating sperm, now they want a warning sign on gays. I wonder what it would say. Maybe something along the lines of warnings for smokers like "Warning: Oral inhalation may cause serious disease".
