What will they legalize next in Massachusetts?

Isn’t wonderful to live in Massachusetts? Last year, we were gifted with the special privilege of declaring that two men or two women can be married, when in reality no such things is actually possible. Now our lawmakers—apparently with nothing better to do—are hard at work legalizing bestiality. You read that right.

As the linked article says, everyone laughed 2-1/2 years ago (or more accurately, screamed in outrage) when Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum predicted that gay marriage would eventually lead to every kind of abomination, including legalized bestiality. How horrid, they said, to level such a slur against homosexuals.

In fact, the legislature is considering a bill to legalize all kinds of things we once knew were wrong.

Sponsored by Senators Cynthia Creem and Robert O’Leary, and Representatives Michael Festa and David Linsky, the bestiality measure was buried in a packaged assault on morality, disguised as “An Act Relative to Archaic Crimes.” The bill would strike down several sections of the current penal code criminalizing adultery, fornication and the advertisement of abortion. It also repeals what appears to be a sodomy statute forbidding “abominable and detestable crime against nature, either with mankind or with a beast.”
