The gay lobby immediately hailed the decision as the prelude to gay marriage. Of course! As Justice Scalia said in his dissent, this decision "effectively decrees the end of all morals legislation." Well, will the media apologize to Santorum? They ought to. Will they lobby now to reinstate the Catholic priests who are pedophiles? After all, much of that was "consensual." Hardly.
What we can hope and pray for is nothing less than a miracle—that two sensible judges will be appointed to join Scalia, Thomas, and Rehnquist. Please, Lord, may it happen.
