Don't kill us, jail us

According to Americablog, Peter Spriggs (left) from the Family Research Council of Super Bowl ad fame has called for the criminalization of homosexuality.  Bryan Fischer (right) of the American Family Association agreed, because homosexuality "represents an enormous threat to public health."  Said Fischer: "It's a simple matter of common sense, sound public policy, and a concern for public health. … Whatever we think we should do to curtail injection drug use are the same sorts of things we should pursue to curtail homosexual conduct."

He further justifies his jailing gay folks by claiming that 1 Timothy1:8-11 says that "those 'who practice homosexuality' should come under the purview of the law just as much as those who take people captive in order to sell them into slavery." 

As Americablog points out, "Family Research Council (FRC) and the American Family Association (AFA) are important players in Republican politics. So, we have to start asking Republicans if they agree with this proposal to jail the gays."

So, I guess these folks think that killing gay people is a little too much.  Jailing us will do just fine.
