Denmark and bestiality

Denmark is the third most atheistic country in the world and the website adherents.com reports that 43 - 80% of Danes are agnostics/atheists/non-believers in God.[1]

On the Internet Danish animal owners advertise openly that they offer sex with animals, without intervention from police or other authorities, Danish newspaper 24timer reports. [2]

Bestiality is the act of engaging in sexual relations with an animal. In addition to being repulsive and being a sexual taboo in societies, bestiality can cause harm to both animals and humans.[3]

Vice News, a global news channel which broadcasts documentaries about current topics, reported in 2014 concerning secular Europe:

Bestiality is having a weird renaissance in Europe. Perhaps ironically, it kicked off when activists succeeded in banning the practice in places like Germany and Norway. In the background, something else emerged simultaneously: an animal-sex-tourism industry, which has been blossoming in Denmark.[4]

In 2014, according to Danish journalist Margit Shabanzahen, a Danish man who ran a business catering to people who have sex with horses said that he had buses of people arriving at his business.[5]

Denmark has the highest rate of belief in evolution in the Western World.[6] In addition, in 2005 Denmark was ranked the third most atheistic country in the world and the website adherents.com reported that in 2005 43 - 80% of Danes are agnostics/atheists/non-believers in God.[7]

In recent years, several countries with high rates of Darwinism/atheism have experienced problems relating to bestiality (see: Bestiality and secular Europe and Atheism and bestiality and evolutionary belief and bestiality).

Rise in bestiality tourism in Denmark. Denmark considering a ban on bestiality in 2014

In October of 2014, Mashable reported: "Banning sex with animals seems like a pretty obvious move in any civilized society, but it took a rise in bestiality tourism for Denmark to make a move."[8]

A 2006 article entitled Animal bordellos draw Norweigans, the Norweigan news website Aftenposten reported:

Neither Denmark nor Norway has a prohibition on sex with animals, as long as the animals do not suffer.

On the internet Danish animal owners advertise openly that they offer sex with animals, without intervention from police or other authorities, Danish newspaper 24timer reports.[9]

Denmark banned bestiality in 2015 in a narrow vote

In 2015, Denmark passed a law banning bestiality.[10]

Mashable reported, "Members of libertarian party Liberal Alliance and Denmark's Ethical Council for Animals, an independent advisory council, among other groups, voiced opposition to the law.[11]

According the CBS News, the bestiality ban passed in a narrow vote.[12]

Bible on bestiality and study on bestiality

The Bible says that bestiality is a perversion and, under the Old Testament Jewish Law, punishable by death (Exodus 22:19, Leviticus 18:23, Leviticus 20:15 and Deuteronomy 27:21). The atheistic worldview does not lend itself to the establishment of morality within society and individuals (see: Atheism and morality and Atheism and deception).

A study found that "Psychiatric patients were found to have a statistically significant higher prevalence rate (55%) of bestiality than the control groups (10% and 15% respectively)."[13] The atheist population has a higher suicide rate and lower marriage rates than the general population (see: Atheism and suicide and Atheism and marriageability and Atheism and health).
