moral and social consequences of this decision are far worse than those
experienced with Roe v. Wade. In granting constitutional protection to
sodomy, the Supreme Court solemnly renounced the duty imposed by Natural Law
on every government to uphold morality in striving for the common good. This
dereliction of duty represents a major blow to America’s Christian roots,
the institution of the family and the very foundations of morality and
v. Texas is America’s “moral 9/11.” In one fell swoop, the
highest court in the land laid low the legal constructs of every state
safeguarding public morality. It also paved the way for destroying a second
set of legal constructs—such as the country’s many DOMA (Defense of

unnatural vice constitutes a grievous sin against God and His Divine Law.

brutal offensive that now obliges pro-family forces to take the initiative.
The American TFP prays that the court’s decision will serve as a clarion
call for all morality-loving Americans who are not already in the fray,
mobilizing them to a legal, principled, and uncompromising rejection of the
