Massachusetts' legislators continue to defy God
It's no surprise that some Massachusetts state legislators have now proposed a bill to soften penalties for those who engage in sex acts with animals. According to Senate Bill No. 938, bestiality would still be kept illegal (for now), but judges would have the option of allowing those who engage in such sex acts to walk away with a fine of "not more than $5,000" at a minimum. The bill would also strike down several sections of the current penal code criminalizing adultery, fornication, and the advertisement of abortion.
The four state legislators who proposed the bill are State Sen. Cynthia Creem, Sen. Robert O'Leary, Rep. Michael Festa, and Rep. David Linsky, who all helped to advocate the "legalization" of homosexual "marriage".
Under the proposed legislation, the wording of the exisiting law would be changed to: "Whoever commits a sexual act on an animal shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for not more than 20 years or in a house of correction for not more than 2 1/2 years, or by a fine of not more than $5,000, or by both such fine and imprisonment," providing for softer penalties.
Since Massachusetts is ruled by those who favor sodomy and other sexually deviant behavior, it is without question that if the bill is passed those who engage in bestiality will be walking away from their grevious crimes with a slap on the wrist and a pat on the back.
During a public hearing on November 1 in the Legislature's Joint Committee on the Judiciary, no one from the public testified against the measure. I am assuming that all the Christians in the state must have been at a Bible study, but perhaps they will come forward when the bill becomes law.
"Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion [perversion]." (Leviticus 18:23)
