PeTA stooping to dirty tactics yet again
When a scientist starts to perform experiments on sheep to determine whether conditions in the womb can decide sexual preference, you would expect him to be slammed by the religious, the conservative, and the animal rights activists. The first because they believe god made adam and eve, not adam and steve; the second because they like to cling to the belief that homosexuality is a choice; and the third because animals are being experimented on.
What you would not expect is for the animal rights activists to forgo focusing on the nature of the experiments and instead claim that the scientists performing them are homophobic. Of course, you would be unfamiliar with the tactics of PeTA, which do not have to make common, logical or even legal sense.
PeTA came right out of the gate claiming that Dr. Roselli’s motives were not scientific curiosity, but were aimed at finding a cure for homosexuality. From the PeTA article:
To put it simply, these experimenters believe that homosexuality is a defect that needs to be fixed, and they’re cutting open and killing gay sheep to do it. Roselli has made it very clear that he intends to use the findings of his experiments to “cure” humans next.
Of course, all it took to find the truth was for one blogger to write Dr. Roselli and ask if he did in fact think that homosexuality was something that should be cured. His response:
No…And I find it appalling and offensive that PETA has suggested that I and my collaborators do.
Wow, what a surprise, PeTA lied about something as a tactic to gain support from the gay and lesbian rights movement. What an ethical lot they are.
