Inspired by this lively HuffPost comments debate and anti-gay marriage video from Nation for Marriage (read our earlier post about that, and watch the video and Stephen Colbert’s excellent parody of it here). The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington is vehemently opposing DC’s marriage equality law. One of the reasons they give is that they don’t want to be forced to place adopted children with gay parents. Never mind that Catholic Charities only performed six DC-funded adoptions last year and that current law already requires them not to discriminate against same-sex couples: this whole dispute completely overlooks a potentially even more important issue: the threat to America’s pets.
There’s a storm coming,
One that the entire balance of nature upsets.
It’s a crisis facing Our Great Nation.
I’m talking of course about gay pets.
The Catholic Church and others oppose
DC’s marriage equality law,
But the crucial issue of gay pet adoption
Hasn’t received any attention at all.
When I take my dog to the dog park
He always has a great time,
But one thing that he doesn’t like
Is when other dogs try to hump him all the time.
And/or based on environmental factors,
I can only assume that the offending dogs
I therefore call on the Congress
And state and local governments throughout the Nation
To make illegal pet adoption by gays
And prevent this burgeoning abomination.
As I’m sure my readers will agree,
Gays adopting pets is as big a threat to our country.
As letting gays adopt an adoptee
Of the human child variety.
Far better that both human and animal adoptees
Continue as institutional internees
(Or, in the pets’ case, be euthanized)
Than that their sexuality be compromised.
What’s the reason for this nefarious gay plot
Which now finally into the light of day has been brought?
They probably want to turn our pets gay
So join me now in this holy mission
To prevent further pet gayness imposition.
Before the gay agenda to animals extends,
Please help protect our four-legged friends.
PS to straight dog owners:
I know that my dog’s not gay
(When other dogs try to hump him he runs away),
But If your dog’s already been infected
By gayness at him directed,
Have him reprogrammed if you can
(It works just as well with dogs as with a human).
If you’re looking for a pet (and you’re straight), please help save America’s pets by adopting one. Check out www.petfinder.com (that’s where we adopted our completely heterosexual dog from). And be sure to sign the petition below.
