US court overturns gay sex ban

I'm really interested about Bush's comments on what is occuring in his homestate:


WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court struck down Texas' ban on gay sex today, ruling that the arrest of two Houston-area men having sex in their bedroom was an unconstitutional violation of privacy.

The 6-3 ruling reverses course from a ruling 17 years ago that states could punish homosexuals for what such laws historically called deviant sex.

Laws forbidding homosexual sex, once universal, now are rare. Those on the books are rarely enforced but underpin other kinds of discrimination, lawyers for the two men had argued to the court.

AP-article in 'Houston Chronicle' (with several links)

A Texas law against gay sex was struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court as an unconstitutional invasion of privacy.

It's kind of funny, really. Bush the far right christian must live with homosexual legality in his home state - by federal law. c.i.

Although three of them actually thought it was okay for a state to tell consenting adults they cannot engage in sex with someone of he same gender.

The three are Neanderthals.
