"[It] does certainly need to be addressed for what it is. It's not about the gay agenda but about the science and the financial impact of that agenda. It's more about sodomy than about pigeonholing a lifestyle.

"When you have egg and sperm that meet in conception, there's an enzyme in the front that burns through the egg. The enzyme burns through so the DNA can enter the egg. If the sperm is deposited anally, it's the enzyme that causes the immune system to fail. That's why the term is AIDS - acquired immunodeficiency syndrome...

"It's about sodomy. It's huge amounts of money. AIDS is a long term illness, causing pain, suffering, death, a long-term illness that's very expensive to treat."

-- Minnesota anti-sodomy activist and Republican state House candidate Bob Frey, explaining why he's making social issues -- and opposition to LGBT rights in particular -- a centerpiece of his campaign. Of course, there's absolutely no scientific validity to anything he's saying, but why let pesky facts get in the way, right?
