Ian Scott – what is natural.. is sex just for procreation .. I’m currently a criminal.. The law is an ass.. how are we going to police this law.

 

09:20

Lou Sheldon – No one has been put in jail for the last 14 years for private consensual gay sex. This Bill is actually a disguise for the gay movement to push forward their agenda.. California example.. society is breaking down.. anal probes.. AIDS.. 93% of AIDS patients in LA are homosexual – cities of refuge.. homosexuality is being taught as an alternative lifestyle.. Gay Power

16:16

Sheldon – you started it, we’re going to finish it! You’d have been smarter politically if you had left it alone

 

16:50

Scott – Sheldon thinks we should leave it alone.. This law will not have any affect on how I live my life

 

18:30

Caller: Grace - homosexuality is a cause of death. AIDS. As a doctor don’t you have a responsibility to the community
