Well, if a ruling can be reversed once,

then it can certainly be reversed again.

I keep hearing the Democrats screeching this is a "Republican Court". Nothing could be further from the truth.

It is an aggressively legislating Court!

The next step?



Supreme Court Strikes Down Necro Sex Ban

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court struck down a ban on necrophiliac sex Thursday, ruling that the law was an unconstitutional violation of privacy.

The 6-3 ruling takes its impetus from a ruling in 2003 that states could not punish persons for what such laws historically called deviant sex.

The case is a major reexamination of the rights and acceptance of necrophiliacs in the United States. More broadly, it also tests a state's ability to classify as a crime what goes on behind the closed bedroom doors of consenting adults, whether living or dead.

Thursday's ruling invalidated a Texas law against "deviate sexual intercourse with a deceased individual."

Defending that law, Texas officials said that it promoted the institutions of marriage and family, and argued that communities have the right to choose their own standards.

The law "demeans the lives of necrophiliac persons," Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote for the majority.

The law "demeans the lives of homosexual persons,"

So do their acts...

Slippery slope for consensual incest and bestiality, I mean sex with personal property. Arguably NO different.

I'm surprised no one made an argument against legalizing sodomy for medical reasons and that it has (and still is) the catalyst for AIDS. So many of our tax dollars are WASTED on this disease that is caused by men screwing each other in this deviant way... where's THAT argument in this case????

Literally, different strokes for different folks.

You'd think this site more then most would be sympathtic to adults being allowed to live as they wish in their own home. I'm content to let God to decide what is and isn't a sin and deal with the sinners.

I believe the Texas law was fundamentally stupid and inappropriate. That said, I do not believe that the Supreme Court had the right to make that judgment. Accidentally getting the right answer from flawed reasoning, is just as bad as getting the wrong answer in my book. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

The law was wrong, but it wasn't up to the Supreme Court to do anything about it.
