Patriotic Sodomy

2003-04-02 17:14:57.344996+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Mark Morford asks: "is sodomy patriotic?". I think y'all know the answer to that one, especially given that Daze Reader yesterday linked to a Minneapolis Star-Tribune article about a porn producer who's offered to send free porn to our troops which had this exchange:

"Do you realize," wrote Drummond, "that one of the reasons the radical Islamic movement so dislikes America is because of its tolerance of pornography? What kind of support will our troops find in Middle Eastern countries if the soldiers are seen as porn-starved trigger jockeys? Your effort will give new life to the allegation that we are not a nation of character, but instead of carnal compromise."

Aaron Gordon has not responded to interview requests about his campaign. But he did reply to Drummond's e-mail.

"With all due respect," he said, "if I were to change anything I did because the 'radical Islamic movement' does not approve of it, then I would have to forgo most of my beliefs in a free society, my way of life in a free society, and together, we would be forgoing the freedom of people who live in this society."

And would a little porn make the natural side effect of our armies occupation (getting the locals pregnant) better or worse?
