Colorado State Senator Dave Schultheis restated his opposition to a bill that requires HIV tests for pregnant women by first claiming that infected babies would cause families to “see the negative consequences of that promiscuity.”
But he elaborated the following day:
“What I’m hoping is that, yes, that person may have AIDS, have it seriously as a baby and when they grow up, but the mother will begin to feel guilt as a result of that,” he said. “The family will see the negative consequences of that promiscuity and it may make a number of people over the coming years begin to realize that there are negative consequences and maybe they should adjust their behavior.”
In an unrelated, and yet frighteningly similar utterance of maniacal morality posing in drag as the voice of Colorado State Senate Republican leadership, State Senator Scott Renfroe spoke against a bill that would give health benefits to same sex domestic partners of state employees by essentially comparing homosexuality to murder.
Calling homosexuality “a detestable act” using Scripture as his justification, Renfroe elaborated. He said:
“I’m not saying (homosexuality) is the only sin that is out there. Obviously we have sin — we have murder, we have, we have all sorts of sin, we have adultery, and we don’t make laws making those legal, and we would never think to make murder legal.”
