Washington state and bestiality

Bestiality is the act of engaging in sexual relations with an animal.

On January 26, 2011, the Seattle Met published an article entitled Washington Is the Worst State in the Country for Bestiality--Here's Why which declared that "Washington is steeped in man-on-beast history".[1] In 2011, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, published an article entitled What’s your state worst at? Washington ranked for bestiality which featured a map entitled "The United States States of Shame: What's your state worst at". The map had the word bestiality superimposed on the state of Washington.[2]

In 2010, the state of Washington has the highest number of reported cases of bestiality in the United States even though it was merely the 13th most populous state according to the 2010 United States census.[3][4]

Data on the atheists and no-religion population of Washington plus political makeup

In 2017, as far as the United States, the website WorldAtlas.com ranked Washington state as having the 5th highest percentage of atheists.[5] According to the CUNY 2000 religious survey, Washington was declared to have the second highest per capita number of people in the United States who answered "no religion" on a survey.[6] 27% of the Washington state population declared they had "no religion".[7] In addition, in 2007 the pro-evolution magazine the Scientific American said that Washington state did a "satisfactory/good" job of teaching evolution (see: Evolutionary belief and bestiality)[8]

A 2011 study reported by CNN indicated that Washington state was a politically liberal state (see: Liberalism and bestiality).[9]

Enumclaw horse sex case

See also: Enumclaw horse sex case

The Enumclaw horse sex case was a 2005 incident in which Kenneth Pinyan, who was an American Boeing engineer residing in Gig Harbor, Washington, died from injuries received during receptive rectal sex with a stallion at a farm near the city of Enumclaw, Washington.[10] Pinyan also distributed bestiality porn under the alias Mr. Hands.[11]

The Associated Press reported that the farm where the event occurred attracted "a significant number of people" who wanted to engage in bestiality and the Seattle Times published a number of articles on the Enumclaw horse sex case.[12]

In 2007, a documentary of the life and death of Kenneth Pinyan (as well as the life led by those who came to the farm near Enumclaw, Washington) was featured at the Sundance Film Festival under the title Zoo. It was one of 16 winners out of 856 film candidates for the festival, and it played at numerous regional festivals in the United States subsequently.[13] In addition, it was also selected as one of the top five American films to be presented at the Directors Fortnight sidebar at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival.[14][15]

2005 horse bestiality stories apparently most popular articles in history of Seattle Times

In 2005, columnist Danny Westneat reported in the Seattle Times:

Which brings me back to sex with horses. The story last summer about the man who died from a perforated colon while having sex with a horse in Enumclaw was by far the year's most read article.

What's more, four more of the year's 20 most clicked-upon local news stories were about the same horse-sex incident. We don't publish our Web-traffic numbers, but take it from me — the total readership on these stories was huge.

So much so, a case can be made that the articles on horse sex are the most widely read material this paper has published in its 109-year history.

I don't know whether to ignore this alarming factoid or to embrace it.[16]

Bestiality farm in Washington state

On April 17, 2011, the Examiner ran a story entitled Bestiality farm raided in Washington state, Douglas Spink arrested which declared:

Douglas Spink, 39, had been arrested in 2005 for smuggling cocaine and was on supervised release after serving three years for his crime. Under the conditions of Douglas Spink’s release, he must adhere to all local, state, and federal laws for five years. Now authorities believe that Spink violated the terms of that release by providing animals for sex acts on an alleged bestiality farm. It has also been suggested that there is a mutual connection between Douglas Spink and Kenneth Pinyan. Pinyan was a Gig Harbor, Washington man who died after engaging in sexual acts with a horse. The case drew national attention and became known as the “Enumclaw horse sex case.”...

On Wednesday, April 14, 2010 authorities raided Douglas Spink’s animal farm and arrested Spinks and a tourist, Stephen Clarke from Peterborough, England. Authorities described some of the evidence found at the scene as ‘bizarre.’ The raid was conducted by the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office in assistance with the U.S. Probation Department, U.S. Marshals Office, and the FBI. Reports state that authorities seized dogs, horses, and mice. There were reportedly thousands of images of bestiality and child pornography found on the property as well.[17]

The Huffington Post reported:

When agents searched Spink's home, they found a video of a man sexually abusing dogs -- and that man, Clarke, was still on the property, wearing the same clothes as in the video, Elfo said. He was charged with animal cruelty and made an initial appearance in Whatcom County Superior Court on Thursday.[18]

Douglas Spink previously lived in Oregon

Douglas Spink previously lived in Oregon.[19] According to the CUNY 2000 religious survey, Oregon was declared to have the highest per capita number of people in the United States who answered "no religion" on a survey.[20] 28% of the Oregon population declared they had "no religion".[21] In addition, in 2007 the pro-evolution magazine the Scientific American said that Oregon state did a "satisfactory/good" job of teaching evolution (see: Evolutionary belief and bestiality)[22] A 2011 study reported by CNN indicated that Oregon state was a politically liberal state.[23]

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)."[24] 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).
