"(a) Any person subject to this chapter who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy. Penetration, however slight, is sufficient to complete the offense. (b) Any person found guilty of sodomy shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”Speculation is that the intention to repeal this article was more about mainstreaming homosexuality in the military but this embarrassing inconvenience seems to bolster the argument that once you legalize gay marriage, etc. you can then move to animals. Nonetheless, Kinsolving asked Carney about this and the latter would not answer the question while feigning disbelief that it was asked and ultimately went to another reporter saying that he wanted to move to something 'more serious.'
This may all sound ridiculous but Kinsolving is simply shining a light on a very disturbing development; 93 Senators voted to make bestiality legal in the military. Assuming they didn't mean to (I'll give them the benefit of the doubt), this reality highlights a major flaw in our legislative branch that, are you ready for this, involves not reading legislation.
