Well I’ll be darned. I love the Star Trek franchise (don’t judge me). As a child I planned on marrying Sulu, exploring the universe, and boldly going where no woman has gone before.
Those were the days…
I also enjoyed both movies in the new Star Trek reboot. Little did I know these little stories harbored a dark secret.
From Right Wing Watch:
On Generations Radio this week, Kevin Swanson discussed the parenting conundrum of censoring children’s entertainment. The pastor and right-wing radio broadcaster began by criticizing Star Trek Into Darkness for a scene in which Captain Kirk wakes up next to “not just one, but two” females of the “wrong” species.
Swanson condemned the movie for endorsing bestiality. He blamed evolution for the blockbuster’s vice, as “evolution has no basic problem with bestiality or cross-species mating.”
Well, I’ll be darned. Here’s a pic of one of the “beasts” in question.
Here’s a direct quote:
Swanson: Do I really want to take my kids to watch a movie that implicates the good guy in the film as mating with the wrong species- but not just one, but two.
I wish someone would explain to this fellow that Start Trek is fiction. It’s made up. It’s not real. Sheesh. We’ve got a super long movie and this particular dude is focused on what turned out to be around a 15 second (give or take) clip.
Good grief. Sometimes I think these people hunt for reasons to get upset.
