No Sex Please!

When Senator Rick Santorum remarked recently that sodomy is ?on
the same playing field? as bigamy, polygamy, incest, and adultery,
he sparked an attack from the media and special interest groups
that was reminiscent of the well-deserved blasting of Trent Lott
last December for his comments on desegregation. Santorum voiced
his opinion about bedroom etiquette while referring to the
Lawrence v. Texas case that?s pending before the Supreme
Court, in which two men were arrested on sodomy charges after
Houston police responded to a false complaint. Not only was the
comment offensive toward gays and practicing polygamists, but
according to Dan Reines, writing for, anyone
who?s getting it on in the bedroom should be on guard. ?In the
senator?s eyes, the right to sexual privacy among consenting adults
is not a given,? writes Reines. He argues that
Lawrence v. Texas is more about privacy than it is about
sodomy. ?In Texas?and in more than a quarter of all states, it?s
worth noting?it remains illegal for consenting adults to express
their sexuality, even in private, unless their sexuality meets
standards laid out by the state legislature.? So, it?s not that
Santorum is anti-gay; he?s just anti-sex.
