|Message||As much as the first article of this bill disgusts me, I have to vote in favor. And with the bestiality proposal, if someone really wants to engage in such activity, they are going to do it regardless of whether the law says they can or can't.|

Bestality is a violation of the animals rights rather than the persons.
The CPD have no problem with public nudity.
Polygamy violates womans rights (although not in all cases).
Homosexuality is different. It is, if you will, "victimless", while these acts are.
