In the world of modern conservatism, there’s calling for the reinstatement of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, there’s calling for the reinstatement of the Defense of Marriage Act, and then there’s this.
In an unusual move, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II (R), his party’s nominee for governor, launched a new campaign website Wednesday highlighting his efforts to reinstate Virginia’s unconstitutional Crimes Against Nature law. The rule, which makes felons out of even consenting married couples who engage in oral or anal sex in the privacy of their own homes, was struck down by federal courts after Cuccinelli blocked efforts to bring it in line with the Supreme Court’s 2003 Lawrence v. Texas ruling.
Vote for me because I’ll revive an unconstitutional law that would make you a criminal for having sex with your husband or wife in your own bedroom?
Why stop there? Why not make it a felony to sleep in the same bed? I bet you could still scare up 30 or 40 percent of the vote on that platform by simultaneously accusing your opponent of seeking to dole out welfare checks. Because obviously that’s just as bad if not worse than people freely having sex.
If you can get blown without fear of being prosecuted for it, is this still America?
