Religious Right pervs

If there was any doubt that the religious right is bizarrely, twistedly, furiously sex-mad, it can finally be put to rest. In their ongoing battle against human rights for gays, the "American Family Association" (one of those wingnut groups for whom the word "family" is synonymous with "misogynist, homophobic and sex-obsessed"), has published a list of Sexual Orientations in the interest of scuttling a proposed hate crimes law that would protect gays and lesbians. The list includes things like coprophilia, necrophilia, klismaphilia (pleasure derived from enemas) and a host of other behaviours which the AFA apparently defines as "sexual orientations". Taste the crazy. (NWS)

The AFA has emailed the list out to their membership with a cover letter that says, in part:

"Please help us get this information into the hands of as many people as possible by forwarding it to your entire email list of family and friends.

A message from Chuck Colson

Dear XXX,

Please take the time to read the enclosed article by Chuck Colson. Click here.

This law does not define “sexual orientation,” leaving open the definition of the term. To see all the behaviors covered by the term “sexual orientation,” please click here. Warning! This listing is offensive."...

It's offensive alright. It's offensive to think that these dumbasses have nothing better to do than research corpse-fucking and shit-eating, and that they're ignorant enough to call them "sexual orientations", all the while disputing that hate laws are necessary. Offensive is putting it mildly.
