State Nominee Wants To Criminalize Sex Outside Of Marriage

Do you ever wonder if social conservatives are actually anti-sex or if it's just a massive coincidence that their agenda on sexual politics and rights suggests it? Meet Don Haase, appointed to a judicial selection panel by Alaska governor Sean Parnell, who recently admitted that he thinks sex outside of marriage should be illegal.

During hearings, a Democratic state senator asked Haase if adultery should be a felony. Per the Alaska Daily News:

"I don't see that that would rise to the level of a felony," Haase said.

Paskvan: "Do you believe it should be a crime?"

Haase: "Yeah, I think it's very harmful to have extramarital affairs. It's harmful to children, it's harmful to the spouse who entered a legally binding agreement to marry the person that's cheating on them."

Paskvan: "What about premarital affairs — should that be a crime?"

Haase: "I think that would be up to the voters certainly. If it came before (the state) as a vote, I probably would vote for it ... I can see where it would be a matter for the state to be involved with because of the spread of disease and the likelihood that it would cause violence. I can see legitimate reasons to push that as a crime."

You heard it from Haase first: Sex before marriage will lead to murderous rampages. How was this guy not a guest star on Sarah Palin's Alaska?
