Exposing the Darwin fallacy with absurdity

See:

http://www.nwfdailynews.com/opinion/letter-36713-marked-regarding.html

Letter says: Regarding “don’t ask, don’t tell” or even gay rights in general, have we all forgotten so quickly what we learned in grade school? I mean evolution! This process is driven by reproduction. Since homosexuality turns away from reproduction, clearly NATURAL SELECTION has decreed that homosexuals not continue.

I would not agree with the letter writer’s position if he is intending to be serious, but as a satire the letter hits its mark: that it is easy to reach absurd conclusions when natural selection is taken as truth.
