Another Sex Scandal at NIH
by J. Grant Swank, Jr., Pastor
26 June 2003

Congressman Jeff Flake (R-AZ) has written this letter to the National Institutes of Health: "We request an explanation of the criteria used for making project funding decisions. Specifically, we wish to know why funding for viewing pornography takes priority over funding for disease research."

There go our tax dollars. Women are going to sit in front of porn to see how their arousal takes to various hi tech machines. That’s right.

And our money is going to underwrite this.

As the Supreme Court dealt with library porn, so the Court should deal with such obscene material being handled by the National Institutes of Health.

Not pretty pictures here. No wise use of funds here.

There are those in the academic community who are so broadminded that their brains fell out — long ago. And there are some on tenure in these academic villages who will not give up on their liberal fashions. They are there on staff. They are there to stay. They are there to misspend taxpayers’ money. They are there to morally mislead students on campus.

So it goes in a democracy.

But not all Congresspersons are pleased with this tax money going to write up sexual adventures.

There are those speaking out against the $26,000 going from fed moneys for a conference on sexual arousal at the Kinsey Institute in Bloomington, Indiana. Yes, for sure. Take note of the persons speaking out and email them your backing.

"If this conference needs funding, they ought to hit up [pornographer] Larry Flynt, not taxpayers," said Rep. Jeff Flake, Arizona Republican.

"With the current state of the economy and government deficits, federal funds must be spent responsibly," Mr. Flake and his House colleagues wrote.

He sent his letter to NIH Director Dr. Elias Adam Zerhouni. And to him you could also send your communication: NIH, 9000 Rockville Place, Bethesda, MD 20892.

"We request an explanation of the criteria used for making project funding decisions. Specifically, we wish to know why funding for viewing pornography takes priority over funding for disease research," Mr. Flake stated.

This conference is "unanimously and enthusiastically" supported by the Bethesda-based fed agency’s board of review. It’s part of a $147,000 NIH grant for Northwestern Univ psych prof J. Michael Bailey’s project — giving women money to sit in front of porn while using a machine to detect their sex reactions.

That’s it, folks of America the great and wondrous.

Mr. Bailey is known also for his homosexual studies via his latest publication, "The Man Who Would Be Queen."

Has enough been said on this particular venture to get your blood boiling into action? Then act. And right quickly.
