Arkes explains it

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Jul 03, 2003

Are you wondering, as I am wondering, why so few conservatives have spoken out about the Supreme Court's decision in the Texas sodomy case?

Hadley Arkes is brilliant, as usual, in his explanation of the issue,on the National Review site.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    This court case is very revealing isn't it? The Right is pretty much silent so I really don't think congress will do much. The problems lie elsewhere. The Justices are very influential people. Very influential people seek them out. It's amazing how some people can get you to do things you might not ordinarily do - just because they are influential and it sounds like the right thing at the time. Well I said "Let go and let God." AMEN here, too.

    I have read lots of conservative attacks on this case. Some from the basis of social conservatism and some from the angle of blasting the judicial activism that is so dangerous here. Our diocesan paper, the Tidings, had big coverage of the statute of limitations issue but only a canned statement by Bishop Wilton Gregory concerning the sodomy decision.
