  •  Here's the text of the statute: (9+ / 0-)
    § 18.2-361
    Crimes against nature

    A. If any person carnally knows in any manner any brute animal, or carnally knows any male or female person by the anus or by or with the mouth, or voluntarily submits to such carnal knowledge, he or she shall be guilty of a Class 6 felony, except as provided in subsection B.

    Anything that's not involving an animal, a mouth, or an anus is a-OK.  For now.

    That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".

      Just because the government keeps a record of real property transfers, it doesn't mean that the government wants to confiscate your home.

      Teaching "intelligent design" or telling children that the earth is only 6000 years old... now that's a crime against nature!

      The language of this bill is hillarious.

      And what the hell is a "brute animal"?  If Cuccinelli f@cks a show poodle, is that OK under the law? If the animal is not a brute, but a considerate and well-behaved farm animal, is that OK?

      They seem determined to (a) draw a Santorum-like comparison between bestiality and same-sex sexual relations, and (b) enshrine in formal law a medieval concept of "natural law" that has absolutely nothing to do with nature, or law.

      Have the students line up at the police station and turn themselves in for "crimes against nature".  

      Can you imagine being convicted of this and having to declare it on all your job applications?  

      So.. you were convicted of a felony, eh?  What did that consist of?

      I went down on my girlfriend.  Oops.

      How does one achieve nirvana? Lower your expectations. Problem solved. Crisis averted.
