On Tuesday, the state senate of Louisiana voted to make bestiality against the law. The vote was 25-10. Why would ten people vote against making bestiality a crime? Maybe they're super free spirits that believe the government shouldn't make those kinds of decisions? No. Not even close. It's because they're homophobic.
A law on the books prohibits "crimes against nature," but it also outlaws so-called sodomy and was ruled unconstitutional in 2003.
The measure does also specify that previously illegal forms of "sodomy" are no longer against the law.
"Anal sexual intercourse between two human beings shall not be deemed as a crime," part of the bill states.
The Louisiana state senate is comprised of 25 Republicans and 14 Democrats. That means 40 percent of the state's senate republicans voted against making bestiality a crime. The list of "Nays" can be seen here. All 10 are Republicans, and all 10 consider bestiality less problematic morally than homosexuality or oral sex
