Why Not Allow People To Marry Animals?

by Louis A. Turk, Ph.D.

Who are you to say that it is wrong for a man or woman to marry his or her dog or cow or sheep or monkey? Is it not that person's civil right to marry whoever or whatever they want? Does not our constitution guarantee people this freedom? Why would it possibly be wrong?

You say that such questions are crazy. Yes, of course they are. But get ready for such questions---they will be coming from that segment of our society which has rejected God and the Bible. Once God is rejected by a person there is no limit to the depths that person can sink.

Consider this: God made poop to stink so that people would know not to get it on themselves. But homosexuality (sodomy) between men involves anal intercourse---getting poop on one's most private parts. This is the most vile uncleanness imaginable!

I have read reports of sodomites seeking employment at funeral homes so that they can rape the corpes. Perhaps this might happen to your own mother or father or sister or brother or friend. If you do not take a stand against homosexuality, do not complain later if you learn that this has happened to your loved one. There is no depths to which those who reject the authority of the Bible can not sink.

If God is rejected as the final authority of morality, who are humans to think that they can be the judge? If it is ok for people to rebel against God, it is ok for them to rebel against any authority.

This is what God says:

Lev. 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. 23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. 24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: 25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. 26 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: 27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) 28 That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you. 29 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people. 30 Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.

Years ago when I first read the above verses, I was shocked. I thought, why would anyone have to be told something like this? Surely no one would do such things. But now we know that they will and do!

Soon wicked people will seek the right to marry their dogs so as to get the tax breaks only those bearing children in legitimate heterosexual (one man one woman) relationships deserve. If this is denied them, they will claim that they are being discriminated against.

Hey folks, it is right to discriminate against sin. When people murder, rob, rape, or sodomize they give up their freedom and rights. Sin is not a right---it is a crime. Sin hurts people.

Dutch Politicians Want Bestiality Banned; Thu Mar 11, 8:13 AM ET

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Two Dutch political parties called Wednesday for laws prohibiting sex with animals after a man suspected of having sex with a pony was set free.

Wearing nothing but a T-shirt, the man was arrested by police in Utrecht Monday after the pony's owner caught him by surprise in his stable.

"He was caught in the stable, busy with the pony, and was arrested for animal mistreatment," Mary Hallebeek, a prosecution spokeswoman said. (source...)
