And I Can't Get Married Because....

If you listen to the far right, they say that allowing gays to marry or enter into civil unions, American society as we know it will collapse. Of course, I think the far right is the bigger threat and here is proof positive that the radical right is filled with complete loonies.

A friend tip me off to an interview on Fox Radio where anti-abortion activist Neal Horsley talks about his, ummmm, interesting sexual past. Here is a partial transcript:

On May 5, 2005, anti-abortion extremist Neal Horsley was a guest on The Alan Colmes Show, a FOX News radio program. The topic was an interesting one - whether or not an internet service provider should allow Horsley to post the names of abortion doctors on his website. Horsley does that as a way of targeting them and one doctor has been killed. In the course of the interview, however, Colmes asked Horsley about his background, including a statement that he had admitted to engaging in homosexual and bestiality sex.

At first, Horsley laughed and said, "Just because it's printed in the media, people jump to believe it."

"Is it true?" Colmes asked.

"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?"

NH: It has historically been the case. You people are so far removed from the reality... Welcome to domestic life on the farm..."

Colmes said he thought there were a lot of people in the audience who grew up on farms, are living on farms now, raising kids on farms and "and I don't think they are dating Elsie right now. You know what I'm saying?"

Horsley said, "You experiment with anything that moves when you are growing up sexually. You're naive. You know better than that... If it's warm and it's damp and it vibrates you might in fact have sex with it."

Okay, I need to take a shower.

So, if I want to enter into a marriage or like a marriage, I'm considered a threat. When Mr. Horsley talks about his past indescretions with Suzy the pig, it's brushed off as what he did when "he was a fool." He seems to act like everyone was humping farm animals in Georgia. I don't know what goes on down there, but I know a lot of people that grew up in rual areas in the Upper Midwest and I don't think I've heard of people doing it with Bossy the Cow.

Just something to think about when the far right talks about morals and values.
