Slip’n’slide, with beastiality at the bottom

Huffpo’s got a nice review of how “the haters” are “freaking out” about DOMA being struck down by the Supreme Court.  Got a nice shot of a tweet from Bryan Fisher, from the American Family Association, with the classic slippery slope on homosexuality.

The DOMA ruling has now made the normalization of polygamy, pedophilia, incest and bestiality inevitable. Matter of time.

Do you like slippery on your slope?  Inevitable. Of course, the fact that two of these four involve entities that can’t give consent doesn’t prevent Fisher from lumping them all together.

    Where does it end… what if we end up with some sort of polygamous, pedophliac bestiality. Think of the puppies!

    I have never heard an explanation of why gay marriage raises the specter of legalized polygamy, while heterosexual marriage does not.

  2. Scott Aikin says:

    Nice, Aaron. Can’t think of polygamous marriages that aren’t heterosexual.

    “What is it with these people and animals?!? Every time! This is the only issue as well where you go there! It’s not like you go there with Obamacare. ‘Oh, thank you Mr. President. What’s next? Are we going to give health care to turtles?’ It’s only when you’re talking about sex that your definitely-not-perverted brains go straight to animals.” ~John Oliver, on The Daily Show 06/28/2013
