The Myth of Sexual Liberty: How Lawrence v. Texas Threatens Families and Freedom
Lawrence v. Texas for the most part nullified state anti-sodomy laws and opened the legal floodgates for future legal attacks on “morality laws”. The logic of Lawrence has been used to legalize same-sex marriage and now is being used to promote the legalization of polygamy in Utah. Americans need to wake up and appreciate the proper foundation of law, the appropriate role of government, and the role that traditional marriage serves in preserving freedom. Legalizing polygamous marriage undercuts a key component of marriage- sexual fidelity to one person- and could be the knock-out blow to marriage as a social institution protecting freedom. If Americans remain asleep, freedom now enjoyed will be a thing of the past.
