strange silence on the right
By Leila Marie Lawler ( articles ) | Jul 01, 2003
Not much commentary out there about the Supreme Court decision on the Texas sodomy law. Despite being doomed to repeat history unless we learn from it, a lot of so-called conservatives seem not to have been struck by the fact that we are at the beginning of a trajectory on homosexuality resembling the 30-year one marked by Roe vs. Wade (only it won't take that long this time).
No one back then thought we would be arguing over whether sticking a pair of scissors in the nape of the neck of a child is just fine, and no one now seems to realize how gross what we'll be arguing about real soon will be.
I can't blame Thomas Fleming, therefore, for being a bit rambling in his comments on the matter -- I'm just glad he goes there, and puts his finger on the real issue: only true worship will save us now!
