Believe it or not, anti-gay Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern once suggested that she believes bestiality is OK as long as it’s heterosexual. It’s true: She made the statement during an interview with Sirius XM Radio’s Michelangelo Signorile about Kern’s book-banning campaign way back in 2005 — long before she became such a famous bigot.
In a column published by The Windy City Times, Signorile wrote that he asked Kern whether she shouldn’t try to ban Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, since Snow White kisses a frog. “The difference there,” Kern responded, “is that that is still in the heterosexual lifestyle.”
Well, it appears as though five years later, one married heterosexual couple from Bethany, Okla. — which is in Kern’s district and backyard — may have taken her words to heart. The Oklahoman reports:
Edward James Double, 35, and his wife, Brandy Teresa Double, 35, were jailed Tuesday on complaints of bestiality, exhibition of obscene materials to minor children, maintaining a disorderly house, possession of illegal drugs and soliciting sexual conduct with a minor. Edward Double also faces a complaint of indecent exposure.
“We’ve recovered videotape of people having sex with animals,” Bethany Police Chief Phil Cole said. “It’s disgusting. And we pray that none of the kids have been molested.”
Cole said upon review of the video evidence, recordings were found of the Doubles having sexual relations with a canine. Investigators were able to determine the recordings were made in the master bedroom of the home. Investigators also found 6 grams of marijuana and paraphernalia in the home.
Three dogs were taken from the residence, Cole said.
The story doesn’t indicate the sex of the dogs, but as long as the marriage was between a man and a woman, right? Who knows, maybe Kern can try to get these fine upstanding heterosexuals a pardon.
