Last night, anti-abortion extremist Neal Horsley was a guest on The Alan Colmes
Show, a FOX News radio program. The topic was an interesting one - whether or
not an internet service provider should allow Horsley to post the names of abortion
doctors on his website. Horsley does that as a way of targeting them and one doctor
has been killed. In the course of the interview, however, Colmes asked Horsley
about his background, including a statement that he had admitted to engaging in
homosexual and bestiality sex.
At first, Horsley laughed and said, "Just because it's printed in the
media, people jump to believe it."
"Is it true?" Colmes asked.
"Hey, Alan, if you want to accuse me of having sex when I was a fool,
I did everything that crossed my mind that looked like I..."
AC: "You had sex with animals?"
NH: "Absolutely. I was a fool. When you grow up on a farm in Georgia,
your first girlfriend is a mule."
AC: "I'm not so sure that that is so."
NH: "You didn't grow up on a farm in Georgia, did you?"
AC: "Are you suggesting that everybody who grows up on a farm in Georgia
has a mule as a girlfriend?"
NH: It has historically been the case. You people are so far removed from the
reality... Welcome to domestic life on the farm..."
Colmes said he thought there were a lot of people in the audience who grew
up on farms, are living on farms now, raising kids on farms and "and I
don't think they are dating Elsie right now. You know what I'm saying?"
Horsley said, "You experiment with anything that moves when you are growing
up sexually. You're naive. You know better than that... If it's warm and it's
damp and it vibrates you might in fact have sex with it."
In addition to Horsley, Colmes has recently interviewed Randall Terry another
radical anti-abortionist and anti-gay activist. In the middle of an otherwise
Terry began joking - apropos of nothing - that he and Colmes were ex-lovers.
Another extremist interviewed by Colmes not too long ago was Rev. Fred Phelps
who stated on the show that he thought the death penalty should be given for
those who engage in "sodomy." When Colmes asked
Phelps if he had ever engaged in gay sex, Phelps blustered but never said no.
Hmm, I'm beginning to sense a pattern here. Come to think of it, Ann Coulter
is reputed to have an unusually, er, wide-ranging sex life, too, though as far
as I know it's just confined to men. Still, it doesn't exactly match the profile
of an ultra-conservative.
