FDA to homos: You're still disgusting

I readily confess to having done more than my share of badmouthing the Food & Drug Administration as patsies of The Left, mostly for failing to act on my numerous requests that they classify "100% natural" styling products as Schedule 1 controlled substances on account of their Islezbotropic capabilities. Today, however, I take most of that condemnation back, as they seem to have come to their collective bureaucratic senses and have decided to protect Our Nation's Christian Heritage for a change, rather than caving in to the Outrageous demands of radical homosexual activists:

Gay men remain banned for life from donating blood, the government said Wednesday, leaving in place for now a 1983 prohibition meant to prevent the spread of HIV through transfusions.

The Food and Drug Administration reiterated its long-standing policy on its Web site Wednesday, more than a year after the Red Cross and two other blood groups criticized the policy as "medically and scientifically unwarranted."
It's needless to say I applaud this decision. Experience has taught me that the more "scientfically unwarranted" an idea is, the smaller the probability it's a liberal plot hatched in some East Coast liberal arts department with the intent of destroying Western Civilization, like evolution or geometry. This is a transparent attempt to normalize homosexuality, with the implicit message that their blood is just as valid as that of heterosexuals. If we let the nancies into the blood bank, it's just a matter of time before it's used as evidence by the proponents of "gay" "marriage" to advance their sinful agenda: If their blood serves the human body just as well as traditional blood, so their tortured logic goes, shouldn't their relationships be given the same legal footing as traditional marriage? Christians, maintaining the ban on gay blood donors may be the only chance at survival Family Values have.

I also have every confidence that this will be used to market homosexuality as something "natural" and non-threatening, rather than the menance to national security it truly is. Who wants to bet that each pint of designer label La Sangre brand homosexual blood will come packaged with a card saying "Brought to you by the Homosexual Lobby," with a mail-in card for a trial subscription to The Advocate? Already homosexuality is presented as something outre and glamorous, and gay plasma may do more to promote this deviant lifestyle than 50 seasons of Will and Grace.

Maybe I've seen too many movies where a transplanted organ imparts some traits of the donor to the recipient, but this strikes me as a common enough theme to think there must be some truth to it -- maybe Hollywood is trying to tell us something. Who's to say that homosexuality isn't really a bloodborn pathogen that, in its tertiary stages, causes its victims to cornhole one another, attend musical theater, and vote Democratic? Given the implications for national security, it's vital that any potential carriers be screened out, which makes the lax standards being espoused by Red Cross and the other minions of the Homosexual Agenda all the more terrifying:
In March 2006, the Red Cross, the international blood association AABB and America's Blood Centers proposed replacing the lifetime ban with a one-year deferral following male-to-male sexual contact. New and improved tests, which can detect HIV-positive donors within just 10 to 21 days of infection, make the lifetime ban unnecessary, the blood groups told the FDA.

In a document posted Wednesday, the FDA said it would change its policy if given data that show doing so wouldn't pose a "significant and preventable" risk to blood recipients.
Again, I support their reasoning. A year's abstinence from man-on-man sex acts hardly reduces the risk of transmission of homosexuality, particularly when other forms of homosexual activity (attending Cher farewell tours, brunch, shopping at Pottery Barn) aren't prohibited. If -- and that's a mighty big if -- we are to allow these perverts to give blood, why not require that potential donors receive certificates of heterosexuality from Exodus or other accredited ex-gay ministries, to ensure the Purity of the blood supply? I certainly don't want their gay blood, or any other of their gay bodily fluids, pumped into my body, and I doubt you do, either. Drop the FDA a note and let them know you support their embrace of sound science and sound Values. Praise Him!
