Studies Show . . .

For those of you who thought that same sex marriages would ruin it for the rest of you, guess what?

It's not the homosexuals that'll do you in, it's the heterosexuals who shack up that's ruining it for you.

But let me toss in another 'guess what.' It's improving the divorce rate!

The 'sanctity' of marriage now, officially, is a moot point.

U.S. Divorce Rate Lowest Since 1970

By DAVID CRARY - AP National Writer

NEW YORK (AP) - By the numbers, divorce just isn't what it used to be.
Despite the common notion that America remains plagued by a divorce epidemic, the national per capita divorce rate has declined steadily since its peak in 1981 and is now at its lowest level since 1970.

The study above points out another 'guess what' that I can't help but aim at all the ultra-conservative, not left, extreme religion type folks -- get this, an educated and working wife actually helps stabilize the marriage.

HA ! Don't you just love it?

But wait, there's more....

If you don't want to be plagued by critical thinking, you can find a study to back up any theory and attribute it to any cause.

President Bush's nominee for surgeon general, Dr. James W. Holsinger Jr., offers another example.

16 years ago Holsinger wrote a piece about gay sex being unnatural and unhealthy. He stated "The rectum is incapable of mechanical protection against abrasion and severe damage ... can result if objects that are large, sharp or pointed are inserted into the rectum . . ."

It is my theory, that Holsinger was inspired by the very large, sharp and pointy and unlubricated pine cone that somehow became lodged in the same area of study.

THIS? is a nominee for the surgeon general?

Are we going to get a new "caution" message on the happy meal toys and razor blades? Does anyone NOT know that putting sharp, abrasive and pointy things in your body COULD cause damage?

Gimme a D!
Gimme a U!
Gimme an H!

Can we get a big "DUH !" here?

Why do you think that people trim the gerbil's nails? -- but I digress.

Okay, he's trying to make two points 1) Unhealthy and 2) Unnatural.

As for number 1, I say, I don't know what YOU are sticking up there, buddy, but if it's sharp and abrasive, I think you're not very clear on gay sex. Let me help you out with two words of advice . . . Astro Glide.

My response to 'point' number 2, homosexuality has been observed in more than 1,500 species.

Soon, I think, we'll discover that french kissing while wearing a bikini does not make you pregnant.

WHERE does Bush find these people?
