  •  The question isn't what you believe (4+ / 0-)

    It's whether you think you have the right to force your beliefs on others using the instrument of law.  

    Don't like getting your willy sucked?  Think it's awful to take the hershey highway?  Then don't.  But criminalizing it, especially if it's unenforceable (unless there's to be an accompanying "drone in every bedroom" statute to go with it) is the height of silliness.

    The cognitive disconnect between the Republican desire for tiny government and their insistence on trying to regulate private adult behavior that harms absolutely no one is something I have never understood, and have never gotten a clear answer about from any conservative I have spoken to.
