    <p>The BBC recently ran a story about a German couple named Patrick and Susan. The couple has been living together unmarried for the past six years and has four children. In a continent full of unmarried couples with children, this particular pair stands out--because they are brother and sister.</p>

    To hear homosexual agitators tell it, same-sex "marriage" is no threat to the institution that civilized humans have reserved for one man and one woman for thousands of years. They scoff at the notion that vaporizing traditional marriage will break down barriers prohibiting unions involving multiple partners, close relatives or other species. But the facts say otherwise. More than a decade ago, homosexual marriage was legalized in Scandinavia and now dogs are routinely sodomized in Sweden to the point where they need medical treatment. Now the same court that conjured up a same-sex marriage right in Massachusetts has ruled that...

    NATIONAL NEWS Polygamy advocates buoyed by gay court wins Some see sodomy, marriage opinions as helping their cause By JOE CREA Friday, December 26, 2003 Mark Henkel, a “constitutional conservative” and polygamy advocate, said two recent gay rights victories should pave the way to decriminalizing polygamy laws. He claims the U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning state sodomy laws and a Massachusetts case that some say will legalize gay marriage in the Bay State should help polygamists. “The government does not have the authority to be in the marriage business in the first place,” said Henkel, founder of TruthBearer.org, a Web...

    Personally, I'm relaxed about sodomy, which isn't the same as being relaxed during sodomy. But one does one's best to keep up with the times. I use the word ''sodomy,'' incidentally, mainly because I still can. I would wager that one of the consequences of the Supreme Court decision striking down sodomy laws will be that they've also struck down the word. I see New York is revising its statutes to eliminate such anachronistically pejorative terms, and in Georgia, where the DAs have made hip, busy cop-show acronyms out of their archaic legislation, I don't suppose ''SOLCAN''--as in ''Soliciting a...
  • Lawrence Behind Bars: Conservatives vs. privacy.

    July 7, 2003, 9:10 a.m. Lawrence Behind Bars Conservatives vs. privacy. Last month's Supreme Court Lawrence ruling blew some gaskets among social conservatives. Even more than in the University of Michigan racial preference case, the reaction to the Lawrence et al v. Texas ruling (which vacated the Lone Star state's sodomy law) has been especially heated. The Supreme Court "magically discovered a right to privacy that includes sexual perversion," Jan LaRue of Concerned Women for America complained to USA Today. "This is a lamentable outcome," Rev. Rob Schenk, president of the National Clergy Council, told the New York Daily News....
  • The Supreme Court continues to assault self-government

    "Of the three powers above mentioned, the judiciary is next to nothing." Montesquieu, "Spirit of Laws." Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has firmly established itself as the nation's ruling oligarchy, critics are set to demand a constitutional amendment just in case Lawrence vs. Texas leads to its logical conclusion: gay marriage. The Federal Marriage Amendment (declaring that marriage in the United States consists of the union of one man and one woman) might be worth the fun, if for no other reason than to demonstrate to the cultural elite that its attempts to overturn centuries of Western tradition might...
  • 'Scalia Constitution' is scary

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution ^ | 6/30/03 | Jay Bookman
    In a recent public appearance, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, the man proposed by many to become our next chief justice, uttered words that ought to send a chill down the back of every liberty-loving American. "The Constitution just sets minimums," Scalia told an audience at John Carroll University on March 18. "Most of the rights that you enjoy go way beyond what the Constitution requires." Scalia is a Harvard-trained lawyer with a keen intellect and an excellent command of the language. It seems fair to assume that he meant exactly what he said. He did not call into...
  • The sodomy ruling: A liberal gold mine: David Limbaugh challenges Bush to use bully pulpit

    WorldNetDaily.com ^ | Friday, July 4, 2003 | David Limbaugh
    The Supreme Court's ruling in Lawrence v. Texas (the sodomy case) is a veritable gold mine for liberals and the shifting values they hold dear. Not many conservatives I know have any desire to see the sodomy laws of any state enforced against homosexual behavior within the confines of one's private residence. But the Supreme Court's opinion had little to do with protecting that kind of privacy and much more to do with legitimizing homosexuality, moral relativism and the concept of the Constitution as an evolving document. And for good measure, the Court also took a gratuitous swipe at American...

Judge Scalia is a national treasure: *********************************************************** Excerpted from his dissent in today's sodomy ruling: I begin with the Court ’s surprising readiness to recon- sider a decision rendered a mere 17 years ago in Bowers v. Hardwick .I do not myself believe in rigid adherence to stare decisis in constitutional cases;but I do believe that we should be consistent rather than...
