    Pedophilia isn't illegal because of the act itself. It's illegal because there are laws of consent and when a minor is allowed to give such consent. Pedophilia is more a of a tradition than marriage between a man and a woman. Actually marriage between a man and a woman is for all historical purposes a very recent Protestant 'tradition'. The tradition for marriage has always 1 man and many women and this all over the world.

    Now are you going to keep trolling?

    They also get brought up in every single thread on the topic. It's pretty likely that those examples are not picked randomly.

    Those are other forms of sexual deviation. Sexual immorality. Hitler has no importance in this discussion of homosexuality; however, including other forms of sexual immorality that are as "harmless" as homosexuality, is. Homosexuality, polygamy, incest, bestiality, necrophilia(damned disgusting), adultery, fornication, and pedophilia are all forms of sexual immorality.

    Who made you arbitrator of morality? Stick to homosexuality, the others are straw men. What makes homosexuality immoral?

    Unless you care about rule of law. If judges are to rule on sensibilities, and not law, then we should stop pretending that we care at all about law.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    What kind of justice results from the lawgivers seeking to follow their job security before they follow the law?
    Don't work out, work in.

    Well my intent wasn't to judge their motives but to understand the example.

    Trolling is your bailiwick. Try staying on topic.

    They weren't dismissed for following the law, they were ousted for a creative interpretation of the law that shocked the conscience of the society and trespassed on the turf of the legislature.
