I don't know about the whole "basically rape" thing. I've owned male dogs. It was stopping them from doing what they wanted to do that was the problem. :?

(consider the term "Mississippi leg hound".)

That's what neutering is for. Snip-snip. :twisted:

How does the dog consent to being neutered? :twisted:
Now, for something funnier.

Different kettle of fish entirely. If animals had their own way, vet visits wouldn't happen at all, never mind just the occasions where 'snip-snip' occurs... :|

I have trouble following (again).
You think that having sex with an animal about whose state of consent we can only guess should be considered rape and therefore punishable (I gather) but that neutering, to which the animal would definitely not give its consent, is OK? I mean we do it anyway to dogs and to cats (neutering) because it is more convenient not to have litters all the time or the neighbour complaining - but is that really OKer than having sex with a pet (if you're of that persuasion?)
I don't know about AUS, but in Germany there was only recently a law that forbids circumcision of infants on the grounds that they can't give their consent to it and that it is therefore malicious injury and punishable. (Jews and Muslims were really not amused and special readjustments were made). And circumcision (male) is relatively harmless compared to neutering. Er... where was I heading again? Yes. As long as there is no harm done to the animals, I really don't care if people show more than normal affection.

Anyway, it won't help gay people if zoophiles are treated equally unequally - the other way round's the way to go. Just abolish that damn law.

This didn't leave me speechless, it had me laffin my socks off!!

The pastor on Nat. Geo's "Snake Salvation" died Saturday night ... after one of the snakes to which he prays bit him.

Pentecostal pastor Jamie Coots suffered the fatal attack while preaching to his Kentucky congregation.

Emergency units raced to the church ... but the reality star had already left and gone home.

The show's website explains the Pastor and his followers believe the Bible says a poisonous snakebite will not harm them as long as they are anointed by God’s power.

EMTs went to Coots' home but he sent them away ... refusing care ... an hour later he was dead.

It's unclear if they were filming during the sermon.

A rep for the show says the "Snake Salvation" finished filming last year ... and they never intended to film a second season.

Ah, I know that feeling when suddenly you realize you weren't that anointed after all.
Well, he stayed firm in his belief, so at least he wasn't a hypocrite.

And it was an act of God as far as he was concerned.

Fair point, Christian, that he kept to his beliefs, but I wonder how his followers are feeling, seeing as they've been following a man who, actually, wasn't anointed by god!

That's when they change the story Bouncy. Now it'll be that his spirit ascended through the power of the Snake or some crap like that.
Its like the Jehovahs witnesses and their predictions for the end of the world in 1914, 1918, 1925 and 1975 and by the end of the 20th century.
Its easier to rewrite the beliefs than give them up
