Skip to comments.Campus bans Ann Coulter, invites professor who calls sex with animals potentially ‘satisfying’

After effectively barring conservative columnist Ann Coulter from speaking on campus last week, the Jesuit college Fordham University welcomed infanticide and bestiality advocate Peter Singer for a panel discussion on Friday.
According to Fordhams media relations website, Singer, a tenured Princeton bioethics professor, spoke from 4 to 6 p.m. in a panel the university promised will provoke Christians to think about other animals in new ways.
Singer has long lamented the societal stigma against having sex with animals.
Not so long ago, Singer wrote in one essay, any form of sexuality not leading to the conception of children was seen as, at best, wanton lust, or worse, a perversion. One by one, the taboos have fallen. But not every taboo has crumbled.
In the essay, titled Heavy Petting, Singer concluded that sex across the species barrier, while not normal, ceases to be an offence [sic] to our status and dignity as human beings.
Occasionally mutually satisfying activities may develop when humans have sex with their pets, he claimed.
In addition to supporting bestiality and immediately granting equal legal rights to animals, Singer has also advocated euthanizing the mentally ill and aborting disabled infants on utilitarian grounds.
In his 1993 essay Taking Life, Singer, in a section called Justifying Infanticide and Non-Voluntary Euthanasia, wrote that killing a disabled infant is not morally equivalent to killing a person.
Very often it is not wrong at all, he added, noting that newborns should not be considered people until approximately a month after their birth.
Both Singer and his supporters maintain that ethics experts must often confront taboo topics to arrive at greater philosophical truths.

Amazingly and disgustingly insane..... all of it.
In the case of the UofM board of regents seats, both went to former union reps. Rob Steele ran for one of the seats. He’s the tea partier who ran a tough race against John Dingell despite a late entry in 2010.
Peter Singer: Are you going to be the new “patient zero” of the next new AIDS style epidemic by advocating interspecies fornication?
50 years ago these people would be in loony bins, not giving speeches in universities.
100 years ago, they would have been hanged.
“..Her rhetoric is often hateful and needlessly provocative..”
Sure- right. It is good to push the boundaries of moral and healthy sexuality, and it is fun to push people to accept new limits of a compassionate society, by suggesting we kill unwanted people..
But if you say that a retard is a retard- OH MY! No-no. That is hate speech and can not be tolerated.
Dr. Laura, years ago, said on her radio show that Singer quietly retracted that when his own mother got Alzheimer's.
It's cruel to call a sub-normal baby "retarded."
But you should be able to kill it if it's a bother to you.
Last time I checked, it was still an offense to God, our creator. How then can a Catholic college even contemplate letting this degenerate to open his foul mouth on thier campus?
These “people” need killing.
Singer will be burning in Hell for a long time.
Yeah, Christians will pity the beasts in Singer’s presence. Where is ASPCA, HSUS, PETA?
I believe when people say ‘special’ they’re thinking ‘retarded.’
Either that or pedophilia.
Why is this guy not in a padded cell somewhere,complete with strait jacket and a carpet to chew on?
