Jon Stewart asked the question that many lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transsexuals and allies have been wondering about the Republican Party for some time now- what is it about the Republican obsession regarding animal sex? In fact, if all that it takes is a law to stop the Republicans from effing a duck, why is it that they seem to be doing a lot of things that are borderline illegal anyway?
Here is the clip from Steward:
The Republican Party has been obsessed with fear mongering, and one of the things that they love to do is claim that there is this slippery slope from same-sex marriage straight into bestiality even though there are numerous perfectly reasonable reasons why bestiality should remain illegal including the fact that it amounts to raping an animal since animals cannot give absolute consent.
The Republicans, catering to their anti-gay supporters, have often also pushed the idea that same-sex marriage will lead to pedophilia being legal despite the fact that children cannot give consent. Recently, Mike Reagan, the adopted son of Ronald Reagan, even said that legalizing same-sex marriage would result in the legalization of murder. Unfortunately, Mike Reagan’s statements are not the most outrageous ones made in defense of anti-gay bigotry.
Unfortunately, the Republicans have made it clear that they are more than willing to abandon the core principals of the nation’s Founders in order to attempt to push a theocratic state based upon their religious beliefs, thus trampling on people’s natural rights.
