Santorum's argument will come into play now,

Then we can expect libs to demand his resignation for his comments, and simultaneously agree with his comments in their justification for incest/polygamy, etc.

"I never cease to be stunned by Freepers who want big government in people's bedrooms. " Not all freepers are conservatives, many are religious fundamantalists.

Many of the religious wackos lsecretly long for a Taliban like repression of legal statements and legal acts they don't like.

I think maybe you have law confused with religion.


The original post I was replying to said government should not regulate morality. All laws are based on regulation of moral issues. Murder is a moral issue. Rape is a moral issue. Tax evasion is a moral issue.

If we didn't want government regulating morality, we would have to get rid of government altogether.

O'Connor will say that an animal cannot give consent

She should then tell Bob Barker to stop instructing people to get their pets neutered at the end of every episode of The Price is Right. Dog's can't consent to getting their 'nads lopped off, either.

One more indication of America's slow agonizing death.

America's death will lie in completely abandoning the principle of individual freedom. You know, it's founding principle. You're making a good start.

There is already a sizeable movement in the psychiatry and psychology industries to say that children can indeed consent to being molested and that it is not injurious to them.

Prove that this movement is "sizeable." One or two wackos does not a movement make.

You're getting hysterical.

And I understand from reports that the decision specifically addressed the sexual act is protected in the privacy of their own home.

Rape is a crime but what about sexual relationship involving "willing" 24 year old male and his "consenting" 21 year old sister? Under this silly ruling this little foray is a-OK by my reading.

I will wait for the section of this that says this applies to "Grown-ups" only. Let me know when you find it.
When the Supreme Court throws out a bad law it is very specific about what and why. One would presume that Texas has other laws regarding sexual activity involving minors. If not, they have work to do. This case did not involve minors, so no ruling was made regarding such.

Genesis 19

Sodom and Gomorrah Destroyed

1 The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground.
2 "My lords," he said, "please turn aside to your servant's house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning."
"No," they answered, "we will spend the night in the square."
3 But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate.
4 Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom-both young and old-surrounded the house.
5 They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them."
6 Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him
7 and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing.
8 Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don't do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof."
9 "Get out of our way," they replied. And they said, "This fellow came here as an alien, and now he wants to play the judge! We'll treat you worse than them." They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.
10 But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door.
11 Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.
12 The two men said to Lot, "Do you have anyone else here-sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here,
13 because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the LORD against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it."
14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were pledged to marry [1] his daughters. He said, "Hurry and get out of this place, because the LORD is about to destroy the city!" But his sons-in-law thought he was joking.
15 With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, "Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished."
16 When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the LORD was merciful to them.
17 As soon as they had brought them out, one of them said, "Flee for your lives! Don't look back, and don't stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!"
18 But Lot said to them, "No, my lords, [2] please!
19 Your [3] servant has found favor in your [4] eyes, and you [5] have shown great kindness to me in sparing my life. But I can't flee to the mountains; this disaster will overtake me, and I'll die.
20 Look, here is a town near enough to run to, and it is small. Let me flee to it-it is very small, isn't it? Then my life will be spared."
21 He said to him, "Very well, I will grant this request too; I will not overthrow the town you speak of.
22 But flee there quickly, because I cannot do anything until you reach it." (That is why the town was called Zoar. [6] )
23 By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land.
24 Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah-from the LORD out of the heavens.

"Right to Privacy... let's see, Right to Privacy..."


Don't seem to really find that in the Constitution....

Keep looking--it's right next to the part that says the Federal or state government can regulate consensual sexual behavior between adults.

Where in the Constitution does it say that laws cannot be made that use gender as the deciding factor in the severity or even the commission of a crime?

Is the rape of a male by a male considered as bad as rape of a female by a male?

Once again, this court just wrote into the Constitution that which was not there.

BTW - That said, I don't support laws that criminalize private acts between consenting adults in someone castle.

Homosexuals do not want privacy, I live across the street from a pair that like to exibit their depravity to the neighborhood kids in front of their picture window.
