ALTON • Spurred by cases in which bodies of overdose victims were moved to thwart investigations, Illinois state Rep. Dan Beiser, D-Alton, is sponsoring a bill to make unauthorized movement of a corpse a felony.Ask yourself: does the dead person care? They're dead. They don't know what is happening to them. Why should we deny the full sexual expression of the living just because of narrow-minded, Judeo-Christian values? It doesn't hurt anyone, does it? Just more of the same narrow-minded thinking that modern, progressive sorts decrying Rick Santorum's social conservativism should find abhorrent. Admit it: people get all negative about necrophilia because they think it's icky, and all right-thinking sorts know that icky isn't a valid reason to disapprove of homosexuality, so it certainly isn't a valid reason to disapprove of this.
