Marry an Animal?

In the spirit of the entry below this one, I found this little ditty on yet another lefty weblog:

Colorado Legislator: Gay Marriage Will Lead to Interspecies Marriage

This should be an April Fool's joke, but it's not. Colorado state Representative Jim Welker of Loveland, Colorado (same neck of the woods as U.S. Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, chief proponent of the Federal Marriage Amendment that would ban gay marriage) warned his fellow legislators, with a straight face, that if we allow gay marriage today, we'll be inviting marriages between humans and animals tomorrow.

"Where do you draw the line?" Rep. Jim Welker asked. "A year ago in India, a woman married her dog."..."A guy in Boulder tried to marry his horse a couple years ago," Welker said.

These weren't even back-room comments....he made them at a press conference supporting a state constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.

He's right to be up in arms over such an absurd proposition, obviously, because we've seen these kinds of scare tactics from the people on the right before.

One very relevant example helped defeat the "Equal Rights Amendment" from way back in the mid-70s. The opponents challenged that if the ERA were to pass, then it'd open the door for such things as "legalization of homosexual marriages", among other things.

The liberals, naturally, cried foul: Absurd!!! Obviously no one would ever support such a thing, even if the ERA does pass!

Unfortunately, this right-wing scare tactic ruled the day, in spite of the abjectly fatuous nature of the claim. "Homosexual marriages" indeed. PFFFFFTTTT! Give us a break, Republicans...it's getting old. Really, really old.

How to Get Married in The Sims Bustin Out: First serve a meal. Invite your lover over. When he/she comes greet them. Then grab a plate. You lover should grab a plate too. After they get up or put away their dishes. (Depending on how neat they are) they should go to the bathroom then wash their hands. Dance with them or watch T.V. Then they should go to the coffee machine. Now we need to get their social up a little bit. Just talk with them, give them a gift and kiss them. Make sure you propose in a large room.

If I have a loving-bond with my cow and I want to marry her.
Although at this moment her consent or dissaproval coudn't be established. But certainly she didn't resist to have sex with me.
She once resisted when I tried to milk her. So, it proves that she can communicate her will to me.
All cows resist when you slaughter them for their meat.
So, the requirement for consent is not applicable for
cows. The requirement should be "if she /he resists or not"
for animals. So, if homos can marry why I can't?
