A Republican senator from northern Iowa said Wednesday that homosexual lifestyles pose a health risk to him and his family in comments that drew a sharp rebuke from an openly gay Democratic senator. In a speech on the Senate floor, Sen. Dennis Guth of Klemme said the media has “bamboozled” the public into a growing acceptance of gay relationships and argued his family faces “health risks” because of “sexually transmitted infections that this lifestyle invites.”
