• Star Trek promotes bestiality?

     

    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.

    1. “Star Trek is fiction. It’s made up. It’s not real.”

      Oh, really? Well, that’s what you skeptics claim about the Bible, but you don’t seem to have a problem lifting one or two verses completely out of context and claiming that the Bible promotes things it doesn’t and criticize anyone who dares believe in it.

      1. Thanks for your comment, Jay. I appreciate you taking the time to visit. I hope you have a wonderful day.

    2. I’m a fundamentalist Pentecostal who believes God made all of the universe. While I don’t insist on it, I believe it’s possible there may be other sentient races out there. It’s possible, although unlikely, that some might be very humanoid as portrayed in Star Trek and other science fiction shows.

      If it is true, what would be wrong if a human mated with an alien humanoid? Would it be bestiality? Well, I remember when some good old Southern Baptists used to pound there 20 pound Bibles and say that since blacks, and that wasn’t the word they used, weren’t humans and so having sex with them was the hell bound sin of bestiality.

      But were they right according to the Scriptures? In the Bible men married women of other cultures and races. That was never the problem. The real issue was for Jews and Christian marrying outside their faith. Another important factor was that the couple should be married first.

      Moses was married to an Ethiopian woman, a black woman, although some try to deny that she was black. Other Patriarchs married women of other races.

      So I’ll wager the pastor is against interracial marriage even if the man and the woman are of the same faith. However, such a belief is contrary to God’s Word.
