PM Gillard under fire for linking marriage to bestiality

Labor MPs have distanced themselves from the embattled Prime Minister over recent comments suggesting marriage could be linked to bestiality.

In her speech to the Parliament, Wednesday, PM Gillard suggested that legalizing marriage would lead to a “slippery slope” resulting in increased cases of homosexuality, polygamy, and pedophilia.

“It’s a slippery slope,” she said. “I mean, when you open the door to marriage, then what next? Do we now legalize bestiality, also?”

The PM added, “And my greatest concern is for the welfare of the children. Do you really want them growing up in an environment that could potentially lead to cases of child abuse?”

Liberal commentators were quick to seize upon the PM’s remarks.

Controversial columnist R. McDonald wrote Thursday, “Well it’s quite obvious why the PM would say such a thing; she isn’t married!”

However, the defiant PM was quick to defend herself.

“No, that is correct. I don’t believe in marriage. Whether it be between a man and a woman, a man and a man, or indeed a woman and a beard, there’s really no telling what it could lead to. Most importantly, it’s about what it could mean for the children. Therefore, I stand by my decision not to have any.”

Other liberal commentators have come to Gillard’s defense arguing that although her comments were off base, she shouldn’t have been punished with such a “knee-jerk” reaction.

Further weighing into the debate, the Greens leader Christine Milne said that “whales are people, too.”

    How ironic a PM with the morals of an alley cat can have a critique about marriage.

    Lady Jugs would gut me with a fish knife if i acted like the lying slapper or shagger thomson.

    PS – Bribane – still a shithole to drive around.
