What is your opinion about beastiality?

Is it a Leopard or a Jaguar?


Beastiality is defined as a human being having sex with an animal. Like all normal human beings, I am absolutely against beastiality. Some mean-spirited christians, intellectual dullards for sure, compare homosexuality to beastiality. They assert (falsely) that committed gay or lesbian partnerships are the same as having sex with animals.

Of course, that is an illogical argument whose only purpose is to vilify gays and lesbians.

Five important reasons why
Beastiality is always wrong


  1. It is sex with a species too different and of different flesh.

    "All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds." 1 Corinthians 15:39

  2. It was implicitly forbidden in Genesis 2:18-20, where scripture points out that NONE of the animals is a fitting partner for Adam, the first human being, 1 Corinthians 15:45.

    "And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

    And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet (fitting) for him."
    Genesis 2:19-20

  3. Animals are incapable of giving informed consent to sex with humans.

    "Informed consent is a legal condition whereby a person can be said to have given consent based upon a clear appreciation and understanding of the facts, implications and future consequences of an action.

    In order to give informed consent, the individual concerned must have adequate reasoning faculties and be in possession of all relevant facts at the time consent is given.

    This logically excludes animals from the ability to give informed consent."

  4. No reasonable person views beastiality as an innate condition, like heterosexuality or homosexuality.

  5. Human exceptionalism teaches us that animals are never orientation compatible partners for humans by virtue of the fact that they are animals and not human whereas

    human beings are separate from, different than and elevated above the animals, without being evolved from the animals. According to the Bible, as human beings we are far more than just another animal in the forest. We are a special creation of God.

Interesting thought
by: Rick Brentlinger

Your comment is interesting but the original photographer labeled it a leopard.

As I understand it, leopards have shorter legs and are about 25% smaller than jaguars. What leads you to believe its a jaguar instead of a leopard?

The Consent of animals
by: Anonymous

It seems that mounting is the way an animal indicates consent to sexual intercourse. So if this is given then it would not be rape, such as the case of a woman and a male dog. Also, some of the verses that you mentioned are only contained in the Leviticus Holy Codes that are not required of Christians and Jesus himself never expressly rejected bestiality. I believe from this that it is acceptable for Christians to engage in bestiality if they are naturally programmed to be aroused by animals

Please do NOT attempt to walk AND chew gum at the same time
by: Rick Brentlinger

May I say, as kindly as I know how, Your grasp of the concept of informed consent is seriously deficient. I do hope you are joking and not serious. If you are serious, I encourage you to get saved through trusting by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone as your Savior from sin.

20 of the 23 times hell is mentioned in our New Testament, the information comes from Jesus Himself. Hell is a real place and according to Jesus, you DO NOT want to go there so please, trust Jesus and get saved.

"Jesus never expressly rejected beastiality."

That's your rationale? If Jesus didn't mention something it must be okay to do it? Some of us stopped using grade school logic when we left grade school.

I do commend you for having the good sense not to use your name with such a dumb comment.

Rick, you're the reason I despise Theists.

You just directly attacked somebody for their opinion. I guess they haven't taught you how to debate since grade school. You're supposed to tear down the person's argument, not their self esteem. Stop attempting to force your views down people's throats. If they disagree with you, there's nothing you can do about it by verbally attacking them and insulting their intelligence. Get your head out of the class and back down to Earth.

Rick's comment: Some of the clowns who post comments here intend to insult gays and lesbians by comparing our loving committed relationships to having sex with animals. My answer points out that the commenter missed the mark. You will note that most of the people who post silly comments do so Anonymously because their intend to attack and disparage.

May I suggest that you click on the text links in my previous answer and take the Good Person test? It may help you get saved by trusting in Jesus alone as the One who already paid for your sins and then you would not feel compelled to despise Theists.

Hebrew words
by: Anonymous

so I've been doing some research on the homosexuality vs. bestiality issue in Leviticus 18:22-23. the first verse reads "Thou shalt not lie with mankind... it is 'abomination'" and the second reads "Neither shalt thou lie with any beast... it is 'confusion'."

I looked up the definition of the word for "abomination" (to'ebah) and "confusion" (tebel) and to say the least, there's a huge difference between the what the two words mean. apparently, "to'ebah" pertains to idolatry, and "tebel" means an unnatural mixture

would it be correct to say that based on the definitions of these two words, that a homosexual relationship that does not fall under idolatry is permissible, but any relationship with an animal is unnatural?

Rick's comment: Yes, the point at issue in Lev 18:22 and 20:13 is idolatry, worshiping the false gods of ancient Canaan. Beastiality is always wrong.

thank you, Rick. personally I think it's reassuring that we both came up with the same conclusion about this. I've heard a lot of people say that homosexuality and bestiality were condemned for the same reasons and that it's wrong to use modern-day scientific knowledge to determine what the Bible says (e.g., the difference between paraphilia and sexual orientation). however I figured there must be some Biblical distinction between the two because the Scriptures used two different words to describe the acts

No such thing as a Gay Christian

You people are a joke ! Sodomy, Bestiality and Incest are ALL an Abomination to God and worthy of death I might add, even in the N.T. Romans 1:23 So stop trying to turn the truth into a LIE!

dear anon;

please read the Bible properly. bestiality is never said to be "abomination." the KJV reads "confusion" which means "perversion." the word "abomination" is related to idol worship

Romans 1:23 says "And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things." which proves my point further

beastiality

Holy Bible teaches the Holiness. If any one follow Jesus Christ, they can easily find out the difference of holiness and unholiness. As a follower of Lord Jesus, our conscious(spirit)as well as Gospel does not permit beastiality is holiness activity. So, please away from such unnatural habit.

bestiality
by: Anonymous

my dear op, isnt it interesting that you, a gay, see bestiality the way you see it? These people say they do not chose to feel for animals just the same way you claim you dont chose to feel for a fellow man.

You try to prove your point by bringing genesis into it. But the measure you use to condemn other people can also be used to condemn your act. When God saw that non of the animals was close to the man for the man to have as a companion, he did not bring a fellow man to him. Instead, he brought a woman to him. This goes to show that God's plan for the man is not for him to be with man but with the woman.

You try to twist genesis to condemn other people and when Romans is presented to you, you twist it and say 'no! Thats not what the bible is saying'.

Rick's comment: Your reading comprehension and ability to reason logically are sadly lacking. I encourage you to reread the post that started this thread AND the text-links which give further explanation until truth sinks into your muddled mind. Thanks for stopping by.

beastiality
by: Anonymous

I agree whole heartedly that it is a sin in the eyes of God. No human should ever lay with any animal on Earth, it's just foul. But I do wonder if people like that even care? Do they even realize how easy it is find these web sites? I have3 kids I pray never find a site like this but I know eventually they may because of how easy it is to find. It should be banned period. Why just put a ban on gays only if beastiality is still considered legal it's total nonsense.

I personally don't approve r disapprove of homosexuality in order not to be judgmental. I have gay relatives and gay friends but I'm straight. Not to sound ignorant or anything to some people beastiality should strongerbe fought against even stronger than gay rights. As I read in another comment at least their partners are human beings capable of forming an independent thought.
