This seems so stupid...there must be a need to pass it.

Important things can not get passed...so...the flip side.

I vote for NO MORE LAWS!

I think the ACLU will launch a fight here...to protect people’s rights (so they will claim).

The question is...how many states have no laws over sex with animals? I’m betting at least a dozen.

Animal sex illegal, but is it a crime?

If sex with animals is outlawed, from where will they future generations of Democrats?

It says a lot about the morals of any place that has to even think about such absurd stuff. Just the animal cruelty aspect of it should be enough to deter anyone so inclined; one would think PETA would be up in arms about such behavior.

When sex with animals is outlawed, only outlaws will have sex with animals.

And what about this mildly NSFW?

Cheers!

And then they will get activist judges to allow people to marry animals and adopt children together.

The battle of the ages. Between the ACLU protecting people's *rights* and PETA protecting the animals.

Fortunately, I think sodomy with animals is still protected under the federal constitution.

In some places, it is only criminal if you (A) watch video of it (obscenity) or (B) do it in public.

If it is legal to engage in such practice, there will be calls for marriage.

There are people who leave their estates to their pets, and I'm sure there are some who'd like to get their vet bills covered under their insurance plan.

Georgia candidate for governor admits to bestiality
In Georgia, the Creators' Rights Party candidate for governor is creating quite a stir by admitting to the fact that he's had sex with a mule, men, and a watermelon, among other things. He has done these things even though he advocates a strongly anti-gay agenda. Here is an excerpt from the candidate, Neal Horsley, appearing on the Alan Colmes Show:
NH: "Hey, Alan, if you want to accuse me of having sex when I was a fool, I did everything that crossed my mind that looked like I…"
AC: "You had sex with animals?"
NH: "Absolutely. I was a fool. When you grow up on a farm in Georgia, your first girlfriend is a mule."
AC: "I'm not so sure that that is so."
NH: "You didn't grow up on a farm in Georgia, did you?"
AC: "Are you suggesting that everybody who grows up on a farm in Georgia has a mule as a girlfriend?"

Ummm... animal cruelty? The fact that someone in the state legislature heard something about something and said “Wow, that’s sick, we should outlaw it?” As much as you’d like to think otherwise, there are a lot of sickos out there, and bestiality isn’t completely unheard of like some of the other things that have been illegalised in ‘stupid laws’ (like how you can’t tie an alligator to a fire hydrant in some northern city, or it’s illegal to go whaling in some midwestern state).
