Where the Homosexual Agenda Leads Us All

"Let's try the 'Rick Santorum' tonight, baby"

Via CNN, we learn today of a most unnatural relationship:
KROMDRAAI, South Africa (Reuters) -- A pair of orphans have formed an unlikely bond on a South African game park although horns and a love for horse pellets are about the only things they have in common.

Clover is an 11-month-old female rhino calf who was orphaned in the wild when her mother was slain by poachers.

Her constant companion these days is Bok-Bok, a young goat who was also lonely and abandoned.

Improbably, the two made a perfect match and have become inseparable companions at the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve about 18 miles northwest of Johannesburg.

"One would never have thought that a rhino and a goat would get on very well. We were all shocked," said Fran Berkowitz, one of their handlers, as side-by-side the pair tucked into a meal of lucerne, a kind of hay used to feed wild game.

"It's amazing that two different species can get on so well," she said.

The two sometimes playfully butt heads and spend most waking moments close together.

Sentator Rick Santorum (R-PA), commenting on this new relationship, issued a statement to the press criticizing the South African government for sanctioning the relationship between the rhino and the goat.

"Every society in the history of man has upheld the institution of marriage as a bond between a man and a woman, or between a goat and a goat, or between two rhinos." Santorum said. "Why? Because society is based on one thing: that society is based on the future of the society. And that's what? Children. And little rhinos. And of course little goats — I don't know what they're called, but they're little. Monogamous relationships between animals of the same species — but different genders. In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That's not to pick on homosexuality. It's not, you know, man on child, man on dog, rhino on goat, or whatever the case may be. It is one thing. And when you destroy that you have a dramatic impact on the quality of marriage."

James Dobson of Focus on the Family agreed, and in a press conference today reiterated his opposition to rhino-goat relationships.

"Every individual is entitled to respect and human dignity, including those with whom we disagree strongly," said Dobson. "The problem is not with acceptance or kindness, certainly. But kids should not be taught that interspecies love is just another 'lifestyle,' or that it is morally equivalent to heterosexuality. Scripture teaches that all overt sexual activity outside the bonds of the species is sinful and harmful. Children should not be taught otherwise by their teachers, and certainly not if their parents are unaware of the instruction."

Anti-abortion activist Neal Horsely was equally indignant about Clover and Bok-Bok.

"When you grow up on a farm in Georgia, your first girlfriend is a mule," Horsely told Alan Colmes on Fox News. "But not a rhino or a goat. That's just not right."
