Naturally Colbert went on to say that he has no problem with people marrying snakes but he condemns people marrying gay snakes.
HENNINGER: This is a footnote to our gay marriage discussion: A woman in India last week married a snake. I would like to ask the proponents of gay marriage--which violates, after all, traditions going back through all of human history--to now absolutely, positively guarantee that the next movement is not going to be allowing people to marry their pet horse, dog or cat. And you know What? Given the "anything goes" culture we live in, I don't think they can deliver that guarantee.
Honestly, ladies and gentlemen, how do people with these sorts of opinions get jobs where they have to speak in public? Even here in Gomorrah, such an aberration was never brought up. Lots of things happen in India that never happen here.
I wonder where these ideas of human/animal relations come from among politicians and conservative pundits? It's quite shocking for me to even entertain these ideas in jest. Yes, I've heard about goat fuckers (I had never heard of it before the internet), but they are hardly the norm in first world countries and I can hardly imagine that Americans who support gay rights would also support human/animal relations. Gay relations take place between human beings. How dare these idiots even compare gay marriage to animal relations?
The perverse allegations that spew from the right sort of makes you wonder, don't you think?
