Senator Rick Santorum Was Right

So, where exactly does this slippery slope lead? One of the comments Senator Rick Santorum made a while back had to do with "man on dog sex", as we recall. That sure got the "Progressives" going. Well, maybe Santorum was right. Look at this story out of Washington state (from the Seattle Times):

King County sheriff's detectives are investigating the owners of an Enumclaw-area farm after a Seattle man died from injuries sustained while having sex with a horse boarded on the property....

Deputies don't believe a crime occurred because bestiality is not illegal in Washington state and the horse was uninjured, said Urquhart.

But because investigators found chickens, goats and sheep on the property, they are looking into whether animal cruelty — which is a crime — was committed by having sex with these smaller, weaker animals, he said.

The farm was talked about in Internet chat rooms as a destination for people looking to have sex with livestock, he said.

"A significant number of people, we believe, have likely visited this farm," said Urquhart.

The Humane Society of the United States intends to use the case during the next state legislative session as an example of why sex with animals should be outlawed in Washington, said Bob Reder, a Humane Society regional director in Seattle.

"This and a few other cases that we have will allow us a platform to talk about sex abuse of animals," Reder said.

So ... we're worried about the abuse of animals, but not the harm done to our society by such perverts?
