Virginia may be for lovers (dog and otherwise) but it is certainly not for homosexuals. Heaven forbid!
And Ken Cuccinelli, the Republican candidate for Virginia's attorney general intends to keep it that way. Which is why, if elected, he will absolutely not commit to enforcing some sissy nondiscrimination policy protecting homos because they are not normal people like you, me and those five cops arrested for masturbating a German Shepherd.
As he explained to The Virginian-Pilot, "My view is that homosexual acts, not homosexuality, but homosexual acts are wrong. They’re intrinsically wrong. And I think in a natural law-based country it's appropriate to have policies that reflect that...They don’t comport with natural law. I happen to think that it represents (to put it politely; I need my thesaurus to be polite) behavior that is not healthy to an individual and in aggregate is not healthy to society."
Well thank the good Lord someone has the courage of conviction to stand up to those deviant pink triangle people. Otherwise, who knows what sick, twisted things might happen?
Let the kooky queers have their way and next thing you know five Virginia Department of Corrections officers are charged with animal cruelty for fondling a K-9 dog and videotaping the entire canine rubdown.
According to Powhatan Commonwealth’s Attorney Robert B. Beasley Jr., one of the officers, Kelvin Thompson, "allegedly had some sexual contact with the animal," adding that the male dog, a German shepherd or shepherd mix, was not harmed.
"Essentially, he was touching the dog’s penis with his hand," Beasley said. "The others were there filming it. That’s actually how we learned of it — there’s a video."
Terry N. Grimes, a Roanoke attorney representing officer Thompson, said his client planned to plead not guilty to animal cruelty but admitted to fondling the animal.
"I would characterize it as hazing," he said, claiming that Thompson was told by the others, "If you masturbate your K-9 unit, you’ll have greater control over it."
Beasley said all five officers were training at the Academy for Staff Development to become K-9 handlers and now face the same misdemeanor animal-cruelty charges, punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
"They were all kind of there assisting in one way or the other," he said.
Between Virginia's whole "treat homos equally" nondiscrimination hullabaloo and felony bestiality charges requiring more than just innocent "petting" but "carnal knowledge of a brute beast" (aka hot sex w/Lassie), such lax sex laws are simply an open invitation to the Devil's Playground.
Luckily, there's Ken Cuccinelli to ensure the gays know recess is over. If they want equal rights, they're barking up the wrong tree.
In Cuccinelli's Virginia, that's reserved for police officers who like to give hand jobs to their dogs, thank you very much. We're trying to create a "healthy society" here, remember?
