Speaking of which…
I couldn’t decide whether to title this blog “Supreme Court Anoints Sen. Santorum a Prophet”, “John Geoghan Expresses Gratitude to SCOTUS, Requests Immediate Release” or simply “It’s the Culture, Stupid”.
Anyhow, I think my reader is simply right when he says:
Anybody pointed out yet how completely today’s Supreme Court decision vindicates Sen. Rick Santorum?
The decision, after all, states unequivocally that each and every American is “entitled to respect for their private lives” and that “the state cannot demean their existence or control their destiny by making their private sexual conduct a crime.”
Far as I can see, then, what happens in America’s bedrooms has just been officially declared a private matter between a man and his boyfriend, wives, mother, dog, etc., etc., etc.
This is, of course, exactly the case. It remains to be seen whether the American populace will wake from their torpor, put down the remote, and do something. If they do, then analyses of the Court’s breathtaking usurpation of politics and it amazing act of social-engineering hubris have still the possibility of being diagnoses. If Americans choose to snooze, all such analyses will soon be autopsies.
