Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Judge Proctor’s Gamble

Well, that didn’t take long. Three weeks, tops. Despite liberal assurances to the contrary, the Charlotte Observer reports that the U.S. Supreme Court’s Lawrence decision has just been extended to include public solicitation. So much for privacy being, well, private. North Carolina district judge Nate Proctor has not only declared his state’s sodomy law unconstitutional, but has found that after Lawrence “the act of soliciting sodomy is an issue of free speech and personal expression.”

And to think we were afraid of a little slippery slope.

Interesting decision. While I have not read it the question obviously becomes if soliciting sodomy from a member of the same sex is freedom of expression. then what about other forms of sex from any gender?

How could the Lawrence decision become this broad?

i bet gary maxwell exercises his freedom of expression frequently.
