Necrophiliacs will try to use last week’s Supreme Court rulings that
killed DOMA and Prop 8 to “endorse” their marriages, claims Les
Kinsolving, the recently-retired White House correspondent for World Net
Daily (WND). Kinsolving, who is also an Anglican minister and claims to be “twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize,” wrote a WND column yesterday titled “I’m With Scalia, Not The Zoophiliacs.”
The list of comparisons Christian conservatives have made up to
respond to the Supreme Court’s decisions last week supporting the
rights of same-sex couples to marry is long, but this one beats even
Concerned Women For America’s Janice Shaw Crouse’s claim that the
Supreme Court’s decision on DOMA last week will lead to a “bleak future”
including “imprisonment” for Christians.
Claiming that an America without sexual orientation discrimination
“should be an absolute boon for those alternate Mormons who still
believe in polygamy – as well as the polyandrous (women who would like
to have more than one husband at a time)” Kinsolving writes:
Then, consider the great joy of members of the North
American Man/Boy Love Association, or NAMBLA, which was allowed to march
– men with their small boy lovers – in gay parades in both New York and
Among the many other alternate sexual orientations that may well be counted upon to cite this Supreme Court decision are:
Necrophiliacs (providing they properly and healthily preserve the corpses);
Zoophiliacs, who practice bestiality (providing this form of sexual expression is applied only to freely consenting beasts).
The American Family Association Online has noted that the American
Psychiatric Association has published 30 sexual orientations, beginning
with apotemnophilia (sexual arousal associated with a stump of an
amputee), asphyxophilia (sexual gratification from oxygen deprivation)
and autogenophilia (sexual arousal of a man by perception of himself as a
woman or dressed as a woman).
Of course, Kinsolving is wrong — way wrong.
“Kinsolving cites the myth – popularized by the American Family
Association, a notorious anti-gay hate group – that the American
Psychiatric Association recognizes 30 different sexual orientations,
including the aforementioned practices, to baselessly push this
prediction,” Media Matters reports. “In reality, the association does no such thing. But stubborn things like facts won’t stand in the way of WND and its ensemble of conspiracy cranks, bigots, and homophobes.”
