Minnesota Republican Blames AIDS on Homosexuality, the “Gay Agenda” and “Sperm Enzyme”

bob-freyNormally I would give some kind of introduction to a story as ridiculous as this, but there’s really no need in this case.  After I read it I was literally speechless.  My first thought was it was something from a satire site, only it wasn’t at all funny.

In Minnesota, Republican candidate Bob Frey is running for the seat in house district 47A.  And it seems Frey has quite the “scientific” beliefs when it comes to what causes, and ultimately spreads, AIDS.

Frey said, “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 seems he might have gotten this absurd theory from his son Mike, who testified to this “fact” in an argument against gay marriage last year.

Apparently “traditional sex” is immune to this “science.”  And who knew only men were able spread the AIDS virus?

And oral?  Well, we won’t even get into that.

There really aren’t words to describe how insane someone really would have to be in order to believe such nonsense.  The AIDS virus, and how it’s spread, isn’t a “scientific theory.”

This kind of ignorant propaganda is tied back to the 80’s when AIDS and HIV were thought by many to be strictly a “gay virus” to which heterosexuals were immune.

Which I could almost excuse someone for believing back when the virus first emerged in this country and the vast majority of the world knew very little about it.

But in 2014, when we know what AIDS is and how it’s spread, for someone to believe something as preposterous as this is simply inexcusable.

There’s a line between ignorance, stupidity and insanity.  And in my opinion, for someone to honestly believe that AIDS is spread through this ludicrous “sperm enzyme” theory, they have got to be utterly insane.
