Quoting Quiverfull: Star Trek Equals Bestiality?

by Kevin Swanson of Generations of Virtue in “Star Trek Into Darkness Promotes Bestiality”

He said the movie “implicates the good guy [Captain Kirk] in the film as mating with the wrong species, but not just one, but two.”

Pastor Swanson added: “That’s how you get evolution, and so the end result of course is that evolution has no basic problem with bestiality or cross-species mating.”

According to RightWingWatch.org, his co-host Dave Beuhner theorized: “I’m not sure that bestiality and the homosexuality are really all that different.”

    LOL @ “that’s how you get evolution.”
    Also, evolution can’t “have a problem” with this issue or that one, because evolution is neither a sentient being nor a moral code devised to control behavior.

    Bwahahahah! This is the problem with the QF adherents—it’s A STORY! A story about ALIENS. I’ve never met a QF adherent who was okay with creativity, especially writing about what non-Christians do in their spare time. And don’t even mention what it must have been like when Jesus hung out with prostitutes.

    “That’s how you get evolution, and so the end result of course is that evolution has no basic problem with bestiality or cross-species mating.”

    With such a lack of a grasp on science, no wonder this guy is a creationist.

    Evolution does not involve bestiality, the changes are so small its not an ape having sex with another less hairy ape and then giving birth to a human.

    Evolution also is not capable of having morals because it is not a thing. Its like saying gravity is immoral, or that my computer desk doesnt have a problem with canniballism.

    “I’m not sure that bestiality and the homosexuality are really all that different.”
    What? Unless its a male human having sex with a male horse, its completely different. Adult humans can consent to sex with other adult humans, an animal can not consent to having sex with a human.

    Wow, this guy must have never seen a single episode of the original series if he’s getting his panties in such a twist over Kirk “mating” with aliens…

    Well evolution might give this movie the thumbs up, but the laws of physics and gravity are sticking to the RomComs this summer. I don’t know about the Pythagorean theory, but I haven’t asked it yet.
    I no longer get outraged at the homosexuality = bestiality argument after the FRC (totally not a hate group) explained that homosexuality and paedophilia are both wrong not because of consent but because neither can produce children. Can’t argue with that kind of logic (but I do facepalm…a lot)

      So if a man rapes a 10-year-old who has reached menarche and impregnates her, that’s totes okay according to the FRC?

      • Trollface McGee

        I can’t find that article but that pretty much was the premise. I think in their desire to make their argument “secular” there’s really nothing too extreme sadly.

        • lodrelhai

          Okay, this? Terrifying. Absolutely terrifying. I was one of those girls who had the bad luck of getting menarche in elementary school. That did not make me an adult. It did not exonerate the creep who stalked me on my way to school and tried to get me into his truck. And it makes me sick to my stomach to think that these people might actually condone that man’s behavior and still claim to follow Christ.

    I am going to ‘fess up to being an original Trekkie. I was 12 years old when it came on in 1966 and it opened up an entire new world for me! They say that the human mind, once expanded in a new direction, will never return to its original shape. Mine sure didn’t. I suddenly saw that there were people and concepts I’d never encountered before and it was like waking from a sleep. It enabled me to do what fundamentalist religion does NOT want you to do — THINK!

  • Kristen Rosser

    I’m seeing the foundational premise of racism in this whole mindset. The focus is on the outward appearance. The inner nature– not so much. Within the premises of the Star Trek universe, there is no way those women were not fully self-aware, sapient, sentient (and therefore “human”) beings. The fact that “they don’t look like us” is irrelevant. That doesn’t make them animals.
