Sex With Ducks

Posted by Sarah On 2:24 PM
This is about a month old, but I love it so I'm sharing it. Pat Robertson, on the 700 Club, started talking about the hate crimes bill that he is clearly very ignorant on. Actual text of the hate crimes bill can be found HERE. (It did pass, in case you were unaware.)

The bill certifies that if someone is attacked "because of the actual or perceived religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability of any person" it is considered a hate crime. Mr. Robertson, in his infinite wisdom, had the courtesy to say, "You got somebody who's really weird, and his sexual orientation is he likes to have sex with ducks. Is he protected under hate crimes? Is he protected if he likes to have sex with little boys?" Wow, very astute, Mr. Robertson. Well, as a televangelist, I would just like to know when you started telling people to violently attack someone else for any reason. Because that's what a hate crime is as defined in the bill: "willfully causes bodily injury to any person or, through the use of fire, a firearm, or an explosive or incendiary device, attempts to cause bodily injury to any person." Even if someone is a bad person, should citizens of this country go out an attack them, or should we let the law take care of them? Hate crimes are worse than regular assaults because they are motivated by some generally uncontrollable factor (I say generally uncontrollable because religion is a choice). You can see Mr. Robertson making a fool of himself here:

Now, as we all know, sex with ducks will be made legal as soon as gay marriage is, so these two women (Garfunkel and Oates) made a video celebrating that.
