NRO's Santorum Moment

I noticed that Oliver Willis wrote last night, "National Review's Kathryn Jean Lopez has a Rick Santorum moment and says the reason a bestiality case happened in Massachusetts is because of gay marriage."

I thought he was kidding. He wasn't. Under a headline that read "Slippery Slope?" Lopez, wrote:

Just a coincidence that this happened in Massachusetts?

Sherborn teen charged with bestiality

(And no I'm not equating men and dogs.)

No, she was equating gay marriage with bestiality. Lopez has since apologized, but what kind of worldview leads someone to draw such a conclusion in the first place?
