What part of ...are reserved to the states respectively... do you NOT understand?

What part of "to the people" do you not understand? Are you saying the states have the right to make laws regulating anything? Perhaps a law on hair color? Or on how many kids you may have?

If there's no limit on state power we live in a tyranny, albeit a little closer than D.C.

"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."

Call the police, then. Indecent exposure is against the law. Or do you mean that they're kissing and stuff? If they're exposing their privates or having sex in the open window, then they can be arrested, just as you could if you were doing the same thing in front of an open window.

If they're not actually having sex in the window, but are just displaying affection, you may well be offended, but you have no recourse under the law.

I will wait for the section of this that says this applies to "Grown-ups" only. Let me know when you find it.

see post #305

I'm old enough to remember the bra burning of the feminist movement in order to gain national attention for thier cause.
"Political Correctness is a social mob attack in public on the individual. Gays seek politicaly correct mainstreamness of their behaviors in public. It is all over, and they even confine people out of their public street to force their messages and disgusting displays."
Looks like the feminists' tactics have become the model for MANY causes. Engage in outrageous behavior to draw attention to your cause.

You mean why would a deviant hide his deviance?

No. I meant what kind of lack of judgment does your sister have that she would marry a homosexual?

A question for all who contend that this decision sends us into the cesspool:

This was a law that was almost never enforced. For what reason is it critical to have persons committing sodomy subject to a criminal law that is not enforced? Is it critical to have it on the books if it is not used to control conduct?

Is there not a detrimental effect to having unenforced laws on the books, i.e. respect for law, certainty of punishment, etc.?

I don't know whether your point follows or not. (The US Supreme Court has its own internal logic.)

I was just addressing the false analogy of sodomy and prostitution enforcement.

Prostitution arrests do not depend on spying into private homes, while sodomy arrests must.

That's why I seldom see heterosexual couples being busted in their private homes for cunnilingus.

Having seldom-unenforceable laws on the books just to "punish" the "perverted" gays made no sense to the US Supreme Court Justices.

It only appears to discriminate if you buy the lie that a group of people who desire something are somehow set appart from everyone else, and therefore a kind of minority group that can be deprived their equal protections.

I hate to break it to you RAT, but many heterosexuals desire oral sex too. Someday, you'll understand.

If sodomy is an accepted form of sex, sodomy is then mandatory to consume the marriage. End of story.

This is the nuttiest thing that's been posted today.

How does one "consume" a marriage, anyway?

"Insurance companies should be able to refuse to issue policies, or should be able to charge appropriate premiums to homosexuals."

Would be interesting to see this challenged as insurance companies currently do exactly this to smokers.

Hey, I may live in a conservative area, but I do travel and have friends in Chicago, including gay ones. I'm only posting what they've told me- and it isn't all of them. It seems to be a faction of them that believe this. They are young. Granted, I'm sure there are many straight folks who think they have the right to have sex anywhere they want.

Sorry, but I can only explain what I know. I've corrected the 'many' term and did not mean to be all-inclusive.

Can anyone give me one good reason not to be distressed over the "times have changed" underpinning of the Court's decision?

Slippery slope, my eye, we're almost at the bottom of the sliding board. States' rights, fugghedaboudit. Except, of course, for the "compelling interest" of "diversity." Aaargh.

Are all of your rights included in the Bill of Rights? Can the state in which you live constitutionally ban laughter? Eating chitlins? Giving away cash?

"What about orgies?"

I don't know of any laws against them. Do you?
