    And thus we see the effects of religion on people. It's just wrong.

    Here in England some priest said after a serious flooding incident that it was caused by homosexuality.

    At least some men still have their sex drive when on antidepressants.

    Me.... I'm on antipsychotics, and antidepressants (1 antidepressant, 1 mood stabilizer, and 3 antipsychotics).

    My sex drive is shot all to hell.

    These kinds of statements are made because of the ignorance of the speaker or the speaker knows the ignorance of the audience. Many of these statements come from a part of the world where there is no or little education.

    It's like the guy (I think a president of a country) just said that eating chickens causes homosexuality.

    These kinds of statements can be funny but the consequences in peoples lives are very sad.

    Reminds me of how a few evangelicals (Pat Robertson) think hurricanes, tsunamis, and other deadly disasters are acts of God, aiming punish a sinful populace. It fascinates me how people of religious faith can be so cynical and nihilistic in their views.

    What's also worrying is that such a statement from one person will be used as a weapon against a whole group of people with little regard of the consequences.

    What's even more worrying is that such statements will lead to societies welcoming sick laws and regulations so as to guard against this kind of 'threat'.
