    I don't see how you can say this. What is the difference between a law against sodomy and a law against incest, as regards to the Lawrence vs. Texas ruling?

    I can say this because it is true. Things done in private are no less illegal, period.

    The law governing incest is because of the huge negative affects it has emotionally and in some cases physically if a child is involved from pregnancy. Sodomy in and of itself dose not have the same risks to mind and body. So the state no longer considers it a crime, and rightly so.

    My problem comes in when someone tries to apply their personal moral beliefs over others who do not hold the same to be true.

    Good morals- don't kill, don't steal because it hurts someone else physically.

    Bad morals- anti sodomy laws, anti gm laws, because it doesn't do anything to you but maybe offend your religious beliefs.
    Morals are subjective. Aren't you by saying gay marraige is OK trying to force your morals on me?

    It works both ways.

    Saying it should be legal is not the moral equivalent of saying it is OK.

    Just clarifying.

    Interesting. I had never considered that people can support the legalization of something that they consider immoral.

    I don't think you understand. Sodomy done in private is not illegal, despite multiple states still considering it a crime. Drugs are illegal because of possession, which is a totally different issue related to interstate commerce.

    Incest has no negative emotional effects, if done by consenting adults. The risk of birth defects is minor and not relevant if abortion is legal.

    I guess that is the difference between standing by your principals or just giving into what you see as wrong to be politically correct.

    You aren't being physically affected by someone else being gay and married.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    While I've said that I do this myself all the time, I'd like to add that there are some things I find to be morally correct behaviors that I also feel should be illegal.

    Vigilantism, for example. Or torturing terrorists.
