  1. That the concepts of “legally competent”, “consenting” or “human” don’t seem to register in his mind really say a lot about him, doesn’t it.

    I wish these right wing christofascist sex obsessed idiots would spare us their feverish projections and fantasies.

  2. “…if you open it up, where do you draw the lines? Where do you draw the lines?”

    How ’bout a legal agreement between two competent, consenting adults?

  3. Isn’t Todd Staines married to a Fox?

  4. From the picture I’d guess one of his parents must have been a dog.

    1. Actually, he looks like a chipmunk to me.

    What I don’t get is, why aren’t people demanding the factual evidence of these morons? Since there are currently 11 countries with equal marriage, can he point to any of them where bestiality is in demand and what sane government would ever legilslate for such a thing? It seems to me that perhaps Starnes and his ilk are the ones who crave it since they seem to bethe only ones obsessing about it so much, particularly gay sex. O’Brien syndrome perhaps?

  6. As soon as I read that this tosspot quoted from the bible, I stopped reading. Really, religion does have SO much to answer for! Can you imagine what a kinder, more loving world we would all enjoy had the bible never been written? Hopefully, as more and more people get to know someone gay, vile, bigoted, descriminatory attitudes like this will be consigned to history – where they belong.

  7. given there is no requirement to provide evidence for an absurd and incoherent leap of the ridiculous, i’d like to link fox news radio news to dementia and/or herpes. anyway, why is a news reporter concerned with the contents of the bible? perhaps when covering a real story, he’ll invoke homer’s iliad or just get life! barrel-scraping in a murdoch-stylee, respec’

  8. Bryan Fischer wannabe.

  9. You know it’s interesting because the pa- You know what IS interesting? That none of these bigots can come up with an original comment against homosexuality or equal marriage! Its always “the bible says…”, “but it says so in the bible”, or “legalising gay marriage will lead to beastiality”.
    No. No it won’t.
    Legalising beastiality would lead to besstiality.

    Love between two consenting adults is the same no matter what the gender.

  10. Oh yes, because, after all, making divorce easy (in many ways a US achievement) led to bestiality, didn’t it?

    The man is a cretin.

    Bestiality is legally akin to paedophilia and necrophilia – the sexual partners have to be legally consenting.

    QED it’s never going to happen.

    Anyway – even if it did, what difference does it make to same-sex marriage? – it is another argument using straw-man principles in order to deflect people away from the current debate.

  12. Yes, Christians have totally become second-class citizens in the US. In 41 states, Christians are banned from getting legally married and in 29 states it’s legal to fire, demote, harass, or otherwise discriminate against someone just because they are Christians. Oh, wait… none of this applies to Christians but to…

  13. “Starnes defended his position, saying: ”You know it’s interesting because the passage of the Bible that people — that people talk about in regards to, you know, the act of homosexuality, it goes further to talk about that. That men should not lie with beasts. And the women should not do that either. All this kind of stuff.”

    Yeah and you know, it’s interesting because many scholars don’t believe that this passage of the Bible addresses homosexuality and that people who believe that homosexuality and pedophilia are linked are the same people who claim that this passage is about you know, the act of homosexuality.

  14. Even the king of Fox News, Bill O’Reilly, has given up the fight and concedes that equal marriage is going to happen. He even said that opponents have no rational argument against it. Heck, even Rush ‘Loudmouth’ Limbaugh knows it.

    It’s so pathetic to see these troglodytes fighting the tide but quite entertaining to see them drown in the process.
