Gay Sex-No! Beast Sex-A-OK! Followup

Wow! What being mentioned on one of the major blogs will do! For those who don’t know, Cernig at Crooks & Liars mentioned the above named post on their Blog Roundup yesterday. When I woke up this morning, instead of the usual 40-50 hits I normally get in a day there was over 3,000! I thought WTF?

I found that most had come from the C & L link and I read the comments here and on their blog in response to the post. Most of the comments were light and funny, taking the post in the spirit I intended. Others were offended by it. One guy told C & L that they should remove the link.

Those who were offended seemed to have a problem with the headline which they interpreted to mean that I was saying the Catholic church condones bestiality (a term I didn’t use).

I really just have a couple of follow up comments on the post. Firstly, as any journalist will tell you, headlines are meant to grab the attention of the reader. That’s why they are in big, bold fonts and often refer to the most explosive part of the article. Judging by the response, this one seemed to work.

Secondly, regarding the church being associated with bestiality, I have a question for those who were offended.

Would you prefer to find out that your priests and bishops were engaging in sexual relations with animals or would you prefer to find out that they used their position of trust and authority to engage in sexual relations with your underage sons and daughters?

I think any morally responsible person would agree that the latter is 100 times more perverse, sinful and disgusting than the former. And as we all know, some bishops and priests have been doing that! No, we have not heard of any clergymen engaging in bestiality (yet) but because some have already proven to be completely morally corrupt and perverted, I wouldn’t put it past them. It would actually be an improvement over their other, documented perverse behavior.

Father Oliver O’Grady was convicted of serial child molestation over two decades across Northern California.
O’Grady admits he abused dozens of boys and girls during the 1970s and ’80s, including a 9-month-old. When accusations surfaced, church officials simply moved O’Grady to another parish.

So instead of being offended by my post, be offended by your church. Not only did some of your “holy men” commit these disgusting crimes, the cover up which has lasted for decades goes all the way to the Vatican.

Note: the National Geographic link in the main article is fixed. You can also view it here.

    As an atheist, I wasn’t offended by your slander of the Catholic clergy.

    I was offended that your comments on human-animal hybrids are based on so little knowledge of the subject. Apparently you don’t know that rats and mice are different species. Or that animal genetics has absolutely nothing to do with bestiality.

    Jesus, you offend easy. Of course I know that mice and rats are different species. The whole post was a put on as you should have recognized. And I don’t recall saying one damn thing about animal genetics. There are really important posts out there to comment on. Find them.
