Rick Santorum: Ahead of his time

Jeff Jacoby, in a column for the Boston Globe, tells the world that years ago, then-Senator Rick Santorum was saying what should have been painfully obvious to others. That the dreadful Lawrence Supreme Court decision was going to start us down a road better left untrod.
Time's attention, like the BBC's, has been caught by the legal battles underway to decriminalize incest between consenting adults. An article last month by Time reporter Michael Lindenberger titled "Should Incest Be Legal?" highlights the case of Paul Lowe, an Ohio man convicted of incest for having sex with his 22-year-old stepdaughter. Lowe has appealed his conviction to the Supreme Court, making Lawrence the basis of his argument. In Lawrence, the court had ruled that people "are entitled to respect for their private lives" and that under the 14th Amendment, "the state cannot demean their existence or control their destiny by making their private sexual conduct a crime." If that was true for the adult homosexual behavior in Lawrence, why not for the adult incestuous behavior in the Ohio case?
And don't think NAMBLA isn't licking their chops (forgive the imagery), getting ready to once again raise the banner for child molesters to practice their sickness on our children. If we allow incest, then we'll allow bigamy (and won't Mitt Romney be happy about that!), then polygamy (the LDS says, "Thanks!!"), and then, the barriers will be taken down that are doing what they can to protect our children form psychotic predators. Don't think so? Don't be surprised when it happens. Then Try to protect your kids.
