Thank God for the Supreme Court! It has rightly decided
that government has no place in the bedroom of consenting adults (“Court
reverses gay sex ban,” Page A1, June 27).
It is heartening to me that no matter how hard they try
to pack the court with doctrinaire conservatives, the justices remain
independent and express their own consciences. Remember, Justice Harry
Blackmun, who wrote the opinion in Roe v. Wade, was appointed by President
Richard Nixon as a strict constructionist.
As for the religious reactionaries who bemoan this
decision, let them go live in Saudi Arabia or Iran.
