What the FUCK
Alan Colmes, who hosts his own radio show and co-hosts Fox News's Hannity and Colmes, recently interviewed anti-abortion activist Neal Horsley, the creator of the infamous 'Nuremberg Files' website:
Alan: You had sex with animals?
Neal: Absolutely. I was a fool. When you grow up on a farm in Georgia, your first girlfriend is a mule.
Alan: I'm not so sure that is so.
Neal: That's cause you didn't grow up on a farm in Georgie, did you?
Alan: Are you suggesting that everybody who grows up on a farm in Georgia has a mule as a girlfriend?
Neal: It has historically been the case. You people are so far removed from the reality...Welcome to domestic life on the farm... if you don't know that you experiment with any thing that moves when you're growing up sexually, you're naive ... if it's warm and it's damp and it vibrates, you might in fact have sex with it.
Let me repeat: this person's name is Neal Horsley. For real. Listen to the interview here.
I have long thought that many of these Religious Right types are in fact totally depraved individuals who feel like they need some kind of external restraint, be it biblical or governmental, to stop them from trying to have sex with, well, anything 'warm and damp'. For example, see Alan Keyes' claim that anti-gay laws are the only thing standing between normal folks and the 'selfish hedonism' of homosexuality. Mr. Horsley (my God) seems to confirm this:
If a person is depraved and has nothing but their own sexual desires to guide them, they'll do anything.
Here's the thing: most people are not burning with a desire to have sex with farm animals. Normal, sane people do not need a bible or a law to tell them not to do this. And even if normal people did have these desires--and they fucking don't--they would refrain from acting on them out of a sense of common decency.
John Hawkins at Right Wing News doesn't want Mr. Horsley (for the love of ...) to be seen as a representative for the Religious Right. Too bad! From now on, it is safe to assume that ALL wingnut anti-choice Christians are closet donkey-fuckers who will stick their dicks in anything warm and damp enough unless Congress passes a law against it.
Some more information on Horsley from the Southern Poverty Law Center:
Neal Horsley, America's leading anti-abortion webmaster, is the profane voice of the extreme Christian rightNeal Horsley: the new face of the Christian Right.
Horsley [is] the implacable enemy of homosexuals who promises regularly to "arrest faggots," a man who proposes to use nuclear weapons in a bid for Southern secession, the Scripture-quoting theocrat who wants to force his version of Bible law on American society.
Horsley ... boasts to a young acolyte about having sex with men and with mules ... put up photographs on his Web site of naked men engaging in homosexual acts and a nude woman engaging in bestiality amid shots of grotesquely maimed fetuses ...
The 57-year-old Georgian, who warns that "domestic terrorism heralds the shape of things to come," also has become the most public face of anti-abortion extremism in America.
... It was Horsley who propelled his notorious website — featuring home addresses and other detailed information about hundreds of abortion providers — into the national limelight after a physician was murdered by a sniper in 1998.
Neal Horsley, the Bob Dylan enthusiast who once begged a girlfriend to get an abortion, may be the most important rising figure on the hard Christian right.
