If there is a compelling government interest in regulation of what a couple does and does not do to each other in their own bedroom - there is very little that they would NOT have a compelling government interest in regulating.
Most Americans don't think the Government does, or should have that much power.
I wonder which enumerated power would cover such Government regulation. Interstate commerce again? The Liberals favorite excuse for unlimited government power! Amusing to see a “conservative” making the same argument of expansive government power with no limitation discernible.
Actually, no, no one here is arguing that. All I said was that some dead Protestant legislators thought that in 1873. If someone has said that here on this thread or this forum, please point it out to us, I'd like to see it.
Otherwise, we might think you're trying to erect a straw man.
There is a HUGE DIFFERENCE between arguing that something should be illegal and simply acknowledging that government has the authority to make it illegal if it so desires.

Libertarians LOVE to bring up the Commerce Clause. Why don't you tell us, what DOES the Commerce Clause cover?
And let's take the federal government out of it, ALL of the states had morality laws at the time the Constitution was ratified (homosexuality was a capital offense in some states), NOBODY suggested that the states didn't have the authority. Do you believe that the states still have the authority?
