Top Republicans Don’t Remember Endorsing Sodomy, Bestiality In Defense Bill

Top Republicans Don’t Remember Endorsing Sodomy, Bestiality In Defense Bill

Many Republicans in the Senate seemingly passed the Defense Authorization Bill 93-7 last Thursday without reading, or being fully aware of, its contents.

The bill would authorize $662 billion for military personnel, weapons systems, national security programs in the Energy Department, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in the fiscal year that began Oct. 1. The bill also contains provisions that would allow for American citizens to be subject to indefinite military detention if they are suspected of terrorist activities.

Neoconservatives have defended the bill as absolutely necessary to protectg the United States from terrorists, but that fails to explain one of its provisions: The repeal of the ban of sodomy and of bestiality within the military.

Asked by CNSNews.com if they were aware of the sodomy-friendly provision, two well-known Republican Senators who worked on the legislation were clueless.

Senator John McCain said to a CNS reporter who asked about the sodomy provision, “I don’t, I don’t know what you’re—honestly.  I read the bill.  And I was there for many hours of deliberation and debate and amendments.  And probably spent hundreds of, several hundred hours on it.  But that particular provision I did not know.  So we’ll have, we’ll get back to you. We’ll get back to you. Just call.”

Senator Lindsey Graham, member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, also had no recollection of endorsing sodomy or bestiality in the military when he voted for the bill and said that it was likely related to the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.”

    The pols repealed the ban so that now ALL of the government can sodomize us!

    • Joe H.

      Vigilant,
      you forgot the word LEGALLY!! Ain’t life a pile of crap???

      • Vicki

        Just goes to show that we really need a law that REQUIRES them to READ the BILLS :)

        https://secure.downsizedc.org/etp/rtba/

        That way there will be no more excuses claiming they didn’t know.

        Of course the very fact that they do claim they are incompetent (which we knew :) ) is good enough reason to fire them. Vote them ALL out in 2012

    • Angel Wannabe

      Vigilant, Washington’s been Sodomizing us for years!

    It must be said that whoever put the repeal of the ban of sodomy and bestiality in a defense authorization bill is properly called an EVIL, SICK SOB. So which SICK, elected SOB/bastardette will own up to this blatant INSANITY?
    Second, Senator McCain seems to have been caught off guard. Is it safe to claim that Senator McCain never read the damned thing? If he didn’t read it, then why the hell is he still in Washington?
    Once it is established WHO is to blame for this INSANITY, who else in the Senate would DARE to “bless” sodomy and bestiality as integral parts of a DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION BILL?
    Folks, it’s about time to alarm the people, march on Washington and reclaim America in the name of the American people. Is it not obvious that we have NO LEADERSHIP in Washington? This is AT LEAST taxation without representation, and it may be more complicated than that.
    I will assume for now that a certain prez and vice prez will claim innocence and act as though they have no role in ‘discouraging’ blatant INSANITY in
    elected circles in Washington. Do either Obummer or Motormouth condone sodomy or bestiality in the military?
    HOW does having legalized sodomy and bestiality in the military make America safer or better? Is there ANYONE out there who doesn’t UNDERSTAND what is so EVIL and INSANE about this?

      MAybe no one cares what YOU think!

  • JimH

    Maybe I’ll run for the senate on the ” at least I’ll read the bill before voting” platform.

    • http://deleted Claire

      Does the bill actually say those words? That sodomy and bestiality is legal with regards to the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” bill?

    • Bleh

      Good luck with that, some of those bills are thousands of pages :(

  • jopa

    Time for everyone that signed this bill if for real to go.

  • simian pete

    HA HA HA HA !!!! Someone sneaked that into the bill !!

    I’m sure Senator McCain will fix the mistake .

  • Cawmun Cents

    Perhaps Bawney Fwank wanted to sleep with Nanchski Peloski.
    That would definitely be understood as sodomy and bestiality.
    I wonder if they could finally SELL the puppies…..
    -CC.

  • alexa

    Why should anyone be surprised that no one read the bill?

  • dan

    Wasn’t McCain one of the authors of the Bill?…hundreds of hours?
    hmmmm. something smells in the WH…now I think I know what that smell is!

  • jopa

    Lindsey Graham is kind of a strange bird, and he may be the one to put in such language.Sounds like something Larry Craig would come up with,is he a lobbyist now?

  • Angel Wannabe

    OUTRAGE ALARM RINGING!___ARE YA Happy Now Washington????___Most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard, the only reason you’d put this kind of info in a bill and then have your news media report on it, is to cause further unrest. Washington’s purposley trying to cause uprise!__How about a BIG FAT GO TO H*LL!

  • http://liberyalearts john p.

    THIS IS OUR TAX DOLLARS PAYING IDIOTS TO RUN OUR COUNTRY .
    I HOPE THIS A JOKE. THEY DON’T READ ANYTHING BE FOR THEY VOTE
    ON SOMETHING .IT SOUNDS MORE LIKE OBAMA CARE ALL OVER .

  • Hub

    This is an outrage. Our soldiers are in a “clear and present danger” with the potential of the group that is the highest carriers of AIDS being placed in physical proximity to them. Isn’t it enough our soldiers risk their lives for us do we need to sit by and allow them to possibly contract the most horrible of many diseases … shame on Congress … Shame on the Senate. Shame on Americans who won’t contact their representatives and tell them to revoke this now in committee.

    • Kevin

      So since the sodomy ban has been removed you believe that heterosexual soldiers will now feel free to engage in homosexual sex? Is the only thing holding you back from homosexual sex a rule? Either you are a homosexual or you are not. The removal of the sodomy ban was inevitable. The military cannot decide who gets to have sex and who doesn’t. The bestiality ban removal is the disturbing aspect of this issue. What would have possessed someone to include that makes no sense to me.

  • It is meant to crash

    This is intentional. All the crap that is going on is deliberate and meant to degrade and collapse society worldwide. The people causing this want to move in and take over the world. You are not going to stop them, too late for that. Read the end of the book if you want to know more.

    • Kevin

      Society will collapse because of homosexuality? Seriously? Less than 5% of the population will lead to the overthrow of the other 95%? How does that even make the slightest bit of sense to you?

  • bp

    This is the diversionary tactic on the Defense Detention Bill 93-7…
    Sodomy, Bestiality, Gays in the Military; it’s always a “minority”….
    So we won’t think about the indefinite detention without due process or trial of “suspected” American Citizens. Yet, we can’t define the “War on Terrorism” & Muslims are now “just like us”. We already have civil & military justice systems. Maybe FEMA camps were built for a purpose? Watch the bill; now in the House for “reconciliation”. This is how the “Healthcare” bill was “passed”, also in December, while we’re in a shopping & Christmas party Santa Claus coma.

  • APN

    Bottom line, no representation whatsoever. Attorneys and union thugs are writing the bills and our elected “Officials” are just too busy campaigning for re-election to read those bills.

    I would suggest that any bill over 1/2 dozen pages is suspect, and those beyond 1/2 dozen pages should be rejected and thrown in the garbage can.

    So much for COMMON SENSE in America.

  • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

    IT “BOGGLES” MY MIND HOW ANY REASONABLE PERSON COULD CONSIDER BESTIALITY TO BE SUCH A WIDESPREAD PRACTICE THAT IT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED IN LEGISLATION.

    Praise the people that repealed the bestiosexuality ban! :)
