I hate Massachusetts. I hate that state, I hate that state, I hate it. More than two and a half years ago, the nation laughed as pro-family crusader Rick Santorum predicted the consequences of legalized gay marriage: If man-on-man marriage was sanctified, man-on-child and man-on-dog unions might not be far behind. Those who jeered Santorum were silenced last Tuesday. Man-on-dog isnâ€™t legal just yet, but if the Massachusetts State Legislature has its way, it might be soon. On November 1, cheerleading for bestiality was just one of a string of stunning pieces of legislation that converged on the legislatureâ€™s judiciary committee in a bizarre, post-Halloween orgy. The imminent collapse of the state cannot be far behind. Sponsored by Senators Cynthia Creem and Robert Oâ€™Leary, and Representatives Michael Festa and David Linsky, the bestiality measure was buried in a packaged assault on morality, disguised as â€œAn Act Relative to Archaic Crimes.â€ The bill would strike down several sections of the current penal code criminalizing adultery, fornication and the advertisement of abortion. It also repeals what appears to be a sodomy statute forbidding â€œabominable and detestable crime against nature, either with mankind or with a beast.â€ "The new law would continue to forbid â€œa sexual act on an animal,â€ but reduce possible penalties for committing such a crime, making it decidedly less illegal" Before this happens, and this is my prediction: Dog Fancy will be plastic wrapped every month on the newsstands. Mark my words. my success rate so far is better than Nostradamus.
