Pro-Family Organization Denounces Supreme Court Decision

Focus on the Family's Vice President of Public Policy Tom Minnery issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court's decision to strike down the Texas sodomy law:

"With today's decision the court continues pillaging its way through the moral norms of our country. If the people have no right to regulate sexuality then ultimately the institution of marriage is in peril, and with it, the welfare of the coming generations of children.

"While it may feel good to some that a stigma is lifted from a particular group, something else has been lifted—the boundaries that prevent sexual chaos in our culture. In recent years we have seen a sharp rise in unwanted pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases, and heartbreak of every kind. By unlocking one of society's last social seatbelts, the court has guaranteed only one thing—more fatal collisions lie just down the road."
