    I was channel surfing yesterday (although with 5 channels, it isn't that fun...)

    anyways, i came across the news and a report came on saying that in 13 states in America, gay sex between 2 consential (is that the word?) adults in their own home was illegal, but the big court in America has ruled that it should be legal.

    Have I got this story correct? I know that church leaders in America probably won't like that...

    The Supremes essentially legalized sodomy, so I'm sure America will turn into a massive "bugger fest".

    You are right, as re: the various religious leaders; I suspect, however, the "Reverends" Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson will remain mum on the topic.

    Likely it is only the beginning of the debate.

    Well well...the Catholic church will no doubt complain about the lack of morality or something

    They couldn't really keep it illegal anyway in this day and age, could they?

    Gay marriage may or may not be a good idea, but leaving consenting adults alone in private is a constitutional idea. Kennedy summed it up well in the opening of the court ruling:

    "Liberty protects the person from unwarranted government intrusions into a dwelling or other private places. In our tradition the State is not omnipresent in the home."
    Given their current legal troubles, the Catholic Church would do well to keep it's mouth shut about this issue.

    The Catholic Church thinks gays are unnatural...ah the joys of being taught in Roman Catholic schools for all of my life...

    The Church will never keep it's mouth shut about anything...remember that they are spreading the word of God and have to protect us - God's children -from sinful things.

    Do i sound scathing enough?

    While I agree the Catholic church, however ironically, has foregone any entree in this debate, we shouldn't forget (seriously, here) the beneficience of behavioral restraints historically imposed by religion(s); for centuries, it constituted the only set of guidelines to societal behavior we had.

    same sex marriage is now legal in canada (along with belgium and holland in the world i think). this causes the USA big problems, because normally speaking states respect each others&#39; marriage laws. this would allow US gays to enjoy the benefits of legally married status (in round about, back door fashion, so to speak).
