Supreme Court overturns Texas sodomy law

Some US states still ban homosexuality

WASHINGTON, June 26 — In a major victory for gay rights advocates, the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday struck down a Texas statute that bans gay couples — but not heterosexuals — from engaging in sodomy, ruling that the law was an unconstitutional violation of privacy.

THE 6-3 RULING reverses course from a ruling 17 years ago that states could punish homosexuals for what such laws historically called deviant sex.

The case is a major re-examination of the rights and acceptance of gay people in the United States. More broadly, it also tests a state’s ability to makes crimes of what goes on behind the closed bedroom doors of consenting adults.

Thursday’s ruling invalidated a Texas law against “deviate sexual intercourse with another individual of the same sex.” ...

Again I ask, how often do you hear about the evils of abortion and homosexuality preached from the pulpit?

We need to be talking about these things, and encouraging each other to pray about these very deadly issues.

If you have any doubt that the Court needs to be impeached dont read Judge Scalia's comments. He exposed the Supreme Court by writing: "The court has largely signed on to the so-called homosexual agenda."

Rick Santorum predicted that if the court embraced the homosexual agenda the next things would be that "you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything."

God's command is "Be fruitful and multiply, replenish the earth." I ask how is this possible between presons of the same sex? It doesn't work. It totally goes against God's creating of male and female and what they are supposed to do.

If anyone here is in doubt about the ghastliness of Roe vs. Wade, look at this. The logic here is exactly the same, and is based on a word that does not appear in the Constitution. The 4th Amendment prohibition against unreasonable search and seizure is being twisted into a ban of the states' legitimate authority to ban crimes.

If, due to privacy, a state cannot ban sodomy or infanticide, what moral law can stand?

Read the whole article if you have a strong stomach. It discusses a few other cases as well.

One that gets me; a ruling that states cannot remove statutes of limitations retroactively was only 5-4. Prohibitions of ex post facto laws appear to be on the way out.

In short, our legal, Constitutional (mostly Biblical) protections appear to mean nothing to our jurists. Pray!
