The gay-rights movement has seized the nation's attention and agenda. Can it hold them?
IN JUNE 26, when the US Supreme Court struck down anti-sodomy legislation across the country in Lawrence v. Texas, it did something else nearly as momentous: It acknowledged and legitimated a shift in public attitudes toward gay rights. Supreme Court justices, like the public at large, were ready to think about gay sex without blushing. Says Sue Hyde, a Cambridge-based activist with the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, ''To me the subtext was, `This just doesn't freak us out anymore.' The court could bring legal analysis to bear on this issue, instead of the ick factor.''

It did no such thing.
You cannot "legitimize" illegitimacy.
The court did not recognize that most of the public is repulsed by homosexual acts.
What the court did do is confirm to all that it is run by a cabal of leftist libertines who pander to perverts.
They want to orchestrate a "shift in public attitudes."
This is the bottom line. Not only should you approve you must embrace and celebrate with them. It really isn't about anything more than LIBERALS wanting ALL. Gays, environmentalists, feminists, socialists, they're all activists cut from the same communist cloth. Others may be naive enough to think they have goodness and mercy at heart but they really have control and power in mind. Dittos for race baiters. It has nothing to do with racism and everything to do with big government dictates and controlling party loyalty.
My grandmother would have called any gal who got "friendly" within four feet of a strange man, "loose."
In my home state, I would prefer things such as sodomy to be decriminalized. If nonetheless, I lived in a state with a Texas-style sodomy law, I would not get in a tizzy about the law "demeaning" the lives of those choosing that sexual conduct behind closed doors.
Silly laws do not have the power to "demean", and it requires very unusual circumstances for someone to be busted for behind closed doors sodomy
I would thank SCOTUS to leave it to the states. Some laws that exist because of underlying moral codes are good and some silly. Justice O'Connor always wants to be the one, pen in hand, to draw the line. Don't Constitutionalize those lines!
