Gnutopia and Animal Love

Philosopher Peter Singer has leaned heavily on his atheistic worldview to support bestiality:

Having “established” that bestiality isn’t rare, Singer says that although the Judeo-Christian tradition maintains a gulf between men and animals, this may be just a Western construction. “We copulate, as they do,” Singer insists. “They have penises and vaginas, as we do, and the fact that the vagina of a calf can be sexually satisfying to a man shows how similar these organs are.” The vehemence with which people react to bestiality “suggests that there is another powerful force at work: our desire to differentiate ourselves, erotically and in every other way, from animals.”

Singer and has fans should be happy to learn that there many in Gnutopia who agree:

Bestiality brothels are spreading through Germany faster than ever thanks to a law that makes animal porn illegal but sex with animals legal, a livestock protection officer has warned.
Madeleine Martin told the Frankfurter Rundschau that current laws were not protecting animals from predatory zoophiles who are increasingly able to turn to bestiality as a ‘lifestyle choice’.
[…]
‘There are now animal brothels in Germany,’ Martin told the paper, adding that people were playing down the issue by by describing it as a ‘lifestyle choice’.
Armed with a host of similar case studies, Ms Martin is now calling for the government to categorically ban bestiality across the country.
Last November German authorities said they were planning to reinstate an old law forbidding sex with animals after a sharp rise in incidents of bestiality along with websites promoting it.
[….]
German ‘zoophile’ group ZETA has announced it will mount a legal challenge should a ban on bestiality become law.
‘Mere concepts of morality have no business being law,’ said ZETA chairman Michael Kiok.

Mere concepts of morality have no business being law. So there! Hmmm. Keep in mind that Jerry Coyne argues there is no such thing as moral responsibility. So see how Gnutopia works? Zoophilia is not illegal in parts of Gnutopia and people who think like Coyne say the Godbots can’t enforce their delusionary sense of moral responsibility on others. In the land of Coyne Think, the only reason to make bestiality illegal is to make it a deterrent against this lifestyle choice.

Smell the enlightenment.

    Smells quite fecal

    “Mere concepts of morality have no business being law” ? Well, then, I suppose Mr. Kiok wouldn’t mind if the German government decided not to use the law to enforce the moral statement, “It is wrong to kill other humans without proper justification”.

    So, on the one hand, “mere concepts of morality have no business being law,” and on the other, “in the land of Coyne Think, the only reason to make bestiality illegal is to make it a deterrent against this lifestyle choice.” But what possible basis is there for deterring the behaviour if not a moral one? Is it an arbitrary, amoral act of coercion? An enlightened act of coercion for the greater well-being of the unenlightened masses?

    Anyhow, someone should point out that they’re probably prostituting under-age animals in those brothels. If there’s no clear moral dividing line between man and beast, then there are still laws that apply regarding the exploitation of minors.

    This planet makes no sense at all.

  4. The Deuce says:

    Not to mention, “Mere concepts of morality have no business being law” is itself a moral concept. A self-refuting one, but one nevertheless.

    Oh, they’ll get around to that if we allow them to, trust me.

    @The Deuce:
    Shades of the Weimar Republic, huh?

    Animals cannot give consent, this is the problem. If you found an alien smart enough to give consent….

    You could claim a dog give consent to lick your face, therefore is kissing you, therefore.. christians who allow dogs to lick their face are actually allowing beastality to occur. There are plenty of christians who allow dogs to lick their face. I’ve never been a fan.
