Frank Boosman has a piece about the oral arguments before the supreme court concerning a challenge to Texas’ outlawing of sodomy by homosexuals.
A previous NPR article to the one Frank mentions (either earlier in the same day or the previous day) also included an interview with a member of the religious right wing movement. He was being pursued about his belief that sodomy between homosexuals propagates the spread of AIDS which is in turn a burden on tax payers due to increased health costs – thus there is not only a moral argument but also a financial one too. The interviewer went on to remind the commentator that AIDS is also passed by sex between heterosexuals and as such shouldn’t the same argument be applied to them too. I swear I heard the right wing commentator retort that sex between heterosexuals should be outlawed too.
There we have it – the end is in sight for the right wing christian conservatives !
