Michele Bachmann condemned Congress on Glenn Beck’s web show last night for moving to repeal Article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which outlaws both sodomy and sex with animals. The repeal measure is part of the Senate’s National Defense Authorization Act, which passed last week.
Beck played a clip of WorldNetDaily’s Les Kinsolving asking White House Press Secretary Jay Carney about the provision yesterday and Bachmann suggested that the policy change could encourage children to try bestiality:
BACHMANN: It’s absolutely abhorrent, reprehensible and you think, this is the kind of thing parents try to keep from their children because parents want to have their children enjoy innocence. Children need that latency period, they need innocence and your own government legalizes this? … Are we really going to say ho hum and laugh and go back to sleep? There’s got to be something we stand for. [...]
So the big question is, is there anything that’s wrong? That’s my question. If that’s not wrong, Glenn what’s wrong? Is there anything that’s wrong? Then you have a very serious problem on your hands.
