Porcupine

Politics! Sex! Religion!

I had expected a flurry of posts about the recent decision of the US Supreme Court in which persecution of homosexual practice was ruled unconstitutional, thereby striking down laws on a dozen states all at once. And more importantly, establishing the principle that "sin" and "crime" are not synonymous in America.

This seems so utterly contrary to the current government that it took me totally by surprise. A quick look at Google news, however, shows that while the decision is making huge headlines all over the world, American media seem much more subdued. Although CNN's legal analyst tentatively concludes that "I think a decision like this means the government couldn't regulate masturbation".
