Stuart Buck refers us to this interesting critique of the recent Supreme Court Lawrence decision.
Best line is "[T]he dissent is ultimately incorrect in its conclusion that the Court's decision means the end of morals legislation. Paradoxically enough, the decision confirms that morality is a viable basis for law. The Court's decision was all about morality, the justices' morality."
My own point of view remains that sodomy laws are stupid, and there may be a constitutional argument against them. ( I lean toward the equal protection opinion of O'Connor ) But the majority opinion in this case is a horrible opinion that will undermine Constitutional Law for generations. Thus our Constitution begins its end not with a bang, but a pathetic whimper.
