In keeping up with the liberals, Canadians take a back seat to no one, although I’m sure animal sex will be Obama’s next crusade.  He will give a whole new meaning to that popular phrase, “I love ewe.”  Or maybe they are just redefining sex as penetration only.  No penetration, no crime.  But I’m afraid they left the meaning very vague.  For instance is it any penetration or are some orifices open to interpretation?  And are they just talking about the penetration of the animal, but the penetration BY an animal is kosher?  Inquiring Muslims want to know.

By a 7-1 vote, the Canada Supreme Court ruled that some sex acts are legal, providing they don’t include penetration.  But I would think it could become very confusing.  It would open up the literary field because new sex instructions might be necessary.  How about the Cowma Sutra?  All You Ever Wanted to Know About Bestiality But Were Afraid to Ask?  Or even Fido has Two Bitches?

The decision came about after a man was convicted of bestiality after he rubbed peanut butter on his two daughter’s genitals and then had the family dog lick it off as he recorded the action.  The court overturned the ruling of the lower court, saying that since no penetration took place, the man was not guilty of bestiality.  I certainly hope they got him on charges of pedophilia and child endangerment.

Justice Rosalie Abella was the lone dissenter:

“Acts with animals that have a sexual purpose are inherently exploitative whether or not penetration occurs.”

Animal rights activists were quick to denounce the ruling and to endorse Judge Abella’s dissent.

You have to wonder how long before some judge in the United States decides that at least some sex with animals is legal.  It’s only a matter of time.
