More on the Dolphin Marriage
JERUSALEM - Sharon Tendler met Cindy 15 years ago. She said it was love at first sight. This week she finally took the plunge and proposed. The lucky "guy" plunged right back.
In a modest ceremony at Dolphin Reef in the southern Israeli port of Eilat, Tendler, a 41-year-old British citizen, apparently became the world's first person to "marry" a dolphin.
Dressed in a white dress, a veil and pink flowers in her hair, Tendler got down on one knee on the dock and gave Cindy a kiss. And a piece of herring.
Call me old-fashioned, but an actual marriage ceremony, a real one, not a play act done purely for entertainment, carries a lot weight. I believe that, despite the disturbing tendency for people to divorce, wedding vows cannot be broken, at least not in the spiritual sense. To engage in such a ceromy of union with an animal is a disgusting perversion of what marriage is designed to be.
"It's not a perverted thing. I do love this dolphin. He's the love of my life," she said Saturday, upon her return to London.
Ummmmm, yes it is.
Tendler, who said she imports clothes and promotes rock bands in England, has visited Israel several times a year since first meeting the dolphin.
When asked in the past if she had a boyfriend, she would always reply, "No. I'm going to end up with Cindy." On Wednesday, she made it official, sort of. While she acknowledged the "wedding" had no legal bearing she did say it reflected her deep feelings toward the bottlenosed, 35-year-old object of her affection.
I love my dogs, but that doesn't mean I'm warped enough in th ehed to want to marry one of them.
Reader CJB had the following to say about this:
"This is just a crazy British woman expressing here love for her ‘pet’. Other crazy people buy ‘marriage certificates’ from MarryYourPet.com. It just shows that there are plenty of crazy people in the world."
I totally agree with him on this point. There ARE plenty of crazy people in this world, and it seems like every one of them wants his "rights" protected in the sense that they want whatever insane thing they are inclined to do legalized and politically sanctioned. Prooof of this is seen in the homosexual community who succesfully lobbied to have homosexuality stricken from the list of mental illnesses in spite of the fact that no scientific or phychiatric evidence supported this move, and in spite of the fact that mounting scientific and psychiatric evidence indicates that really IS a phycholocal abberration rather than a biological drive.
This is, of course, totaly denied by the homosexual activists, their advocates, and their allies.
This also begs the question of how long it will take for people to use the exact same arguments of "what happens in my bed is none of your concern" to successfully defend acts of pedophilia, necrophilia, beastiality, sexual torture, and other abberrant behaviors.
"It's not a bad thing. It’s just something that we did because I love him, but not in the way that you love a man. It's just a pure love that I have for this animal," she said.
Ummmm, yes it is.
While she still kept open the option of "marrying human" at some stage, she said for now she was strictly a "one-dolphin woman."
Well, at least she's fathful.
She's hardly the jealous type, though.
"He will still play with all the other girls there," she said, of their prenuptial agreement. "I hope he has a lot of baby dolphins with the other dolphins. The more dolphins the better."
A woman who doesn't mind if her husband makes babies with other women? Where can I getm me one of those? better yet, where can I get me about twenty of those. I feel a bout of polygamy coming on! (Sarcasm)
An anonymous reader left this comment due to some confusion regarding whether the dolphin "Cindy" was a male or a female.
"I searched 'woman dolphin' in Fox News and found both the O'Reilly article and the Associated Press piece. In the O'Reilly one, he did say that it was a female. But in the Associated Press piece, it said that it was a male. The quotes in the AP story made it seem like the dolphin was definitely male. Either way, the sex of the dolphin seems insignificant, really."
This is very true. It really doesn't matter what the sex of the dolphin is . . . IT'S A DOLPHIN! regardless of gender interspecies marriage is just insane and unnatural. Does anyone here truly believe that there will never be a push for such marriage sto legalized?
Let me answer for you. There already is, and there is an equal push to legalize polygamy, and to legalize pedophile marriage as well. These movements, while young and small, have modeled themselves after the homosexual movement and plan on using the exact same legal arguments and political tactics to push their agenda on America th eway the homosexuals are doing now. One such group, the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) has the ACLU fighting for it already.
