The Error of Cory Bernardi

I think I’ve finally worked out why certain Christians can’t seem to separate bestiality and homosexuality. Why they seem to think that men having sex with other men must inevitably be followed by men having sex with animals.

It’s because in the Bible, it literally happens that way:

  1. You must not have sexual intercourse with a man as you would with a woman; it is a detestable practice.
  2. You will not have sexual relations with any animal, becoming unclean by it. Nor will a woman present herself before an animal to mate with it; it is a perversion.
Note: sourced from the Common English Bible.

You see? In the Bible, bestiality follows homosexuality as naturally as 23 follows 22.

So the next time you encounter one of these logic-challenged bigots, remember: they may be hateful and homophobic, but at least they can count and read.
