Quote# 90510

Anthony Kennedy wrote the infamous Lawrence v. Texas decision that made laws against sodomy unenforceable in America. The Court issued this egregious display of arrogant and immoral judicial activism despite the fact that sodomy had been a criminal offense in all 50 States until 1961 and was still against the law in 24 States and the District of Columbia when the Lawrence decision was issued.

So in one fell swoop the Court deprived almost half the Union of the right to self-governance through their elected representatives, the essence of a republican form of government, and imposed its own twisted version of morality on the entire country. And here we thought imposing your values on others was supposed to be bad! Silly us for believing that swill.

What you do in your church is your own business, but why do you superstitious primitives have to literally parade it in front of us and our children?

see, "sodomy" is such a broad and unambiguous term that you religious folk used to descibe any form of sexual activity you didn't like.
There are VERY good reasons why such laws don't exist anymore.

the judges are merely upholding the right to the pursuit of happiness that you have. you may not be gay, but a sizeable portion of the population is gay, and i would imagine they like gay sex. they didnt impose anything on the states except the inability to impose things on people

Cry harder, Bryan. I enjoy seeing you suffer.

Actually, Lawrence v. Texas struck down sodomy laws in 14 states, not 24. Besides, though not exactly the same, Washington, Maryland, and Maine all just legalized marriage equality through their citizens' vote (a first).

Mister Spak, we don't. Many major cities have "Pride Days" for homosexuals now. Where are the "Christian Days?" I don't remember seeing them, nor do I think there should be "Christian Days." It's not appropriate.

You have no right to impose your views on sex on everyone else which is what the Sodomy laws did. Get over it.

@His: Oh, you mean the one day a year when the queer sommunity organises to present a united front against the homophobes who pervade every town, every apartment block, everywhere, and say "Look at us. Brave enough to try a fag-drag now, brother Christian? Didn't think so."... Those days?

The mainstream majority who control nearly the whole country and whinge if their views aren't shoved on others as much as they'd like don't need a day. And if you're so worried, one day staying inside won't hurt you.

My point is that every day is a Christian Day in some parts of the world - such as yours. I can't go a day without seeing someone pray, or a congregation of Christians talking about Jesus' love, or about seven little fish stuck on the backs of cars. Christians never feel the need to hide their faith at work or in public (and if some do, it's due to a persecution complex rather than genuine risk).

Also, there is no such thing as pro-sodomy legislation.

Felix, I don't know where you live, but I never see that here. How do you see a congregation of Christians talking about Jesus' love unless you walk into said congregation and listen to the sermon?

And where do you get the idea that Christians control this country? Last I heard, Obama had been re-elected, along with many liberals in both the house and the senate. You can certainly expect to see sodomy more widely accepted in the years ahead.

"You can certainly expect to see sodomy more widely accepted in the years ahead."

Nothing to do with who gets elected, everything to do with people growing up and relising grown adults screwing each other is none of their business.

Most of whom are Christians.

But are they TrueChristians™?
