From Strode Reality

Unlike Andrew Sullivan, I’m not religious at all and therefor don’t pretend to either be religious or an expert on The Bible. But I am a current affairs blogger whose very familiar with the U.S. Constitution and the American, federal, liberal, democratic, republican, form of government. And because of that, I know that America is a federal republic, not a theocracy.

The Bible or any other religious book, can say that homosexuality is immoral and therefor it’s not murder or assault, when gays are physically assaulted, terrorized, even raped, and murdered, simply because they’re gay. But the United States of America is not a theocracy (Christian or otherwise) and therefor we are not governed by The Bible or any other religious book. We’re governed by the United States Constitution.

And because of the U.S. Constitution, I also know because of both the 4th Amendment and the 14th Amendment, which protects Americans right to privacy and guarantees every American’s right to equal protection under the U.S. Constitution, I know that prohibition of homosexuality, even in the privacy of consenting adults, is unconstitutional, at it should be.
