Rand's telling Beck's audience exactly what they want to hear.

Actually I would argue that Rand is doing some secret polling on a lot of these statements, because people I know who are anti-gay and WILL SHOW UP TO VOTE lapped all of this up. When I tactfully ask them how there is any equivalency between homosexuality and bestiality, I didn't get a rational answer per say, however, I have had conversations with a few liberals and libertarians of a very libertine mindset who don't see a problem with bestiality and wouldn't see a need to oppose marrying of people and animals.

This stuff doesn't necessarily just come out of nowhere, when you have people who say that all living beings are equal (people, plants, animals, et cetera), someone could deduce that this erases distinctions between persons and animals. I know some fairly radical vegans who might take issue with you defining marriage as a "union of two human souls" on the grounds that animals like wolves and hawks will mate for life.

Just for everyone's consideration. Have fun with all the pointless indignation.
