Strong Majorities Oppose Sodomy Laws

As in the days of Sodom, so will it be.

King of kings' Bible - Luke 17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed [them] all.
17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

WASHINGTON -- A landmark national survey conducted by Witeck-Combs Communications and Harris Interactive has found that 75 percent of self-described Republicans and 88 percent of self-described Democrats surveyed last month favor the U.S. Supreme Court's overturning anti-gay sodomy laws.

"Even when we exclude respondents who self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered, support for overturning state sodomy laws does not change significantly," said Darin Johnson of Witeck-Combs.

Approximately 7 percent of the 2000 American adults surveyed identified themselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered.

The U.S. Supreme Court is now considering Lawrence v. Texas, which challenges the constitutionality of a gay-specific sodomy law in Texas. A court decision overturning the statute would undermine similarly worded laws in the handful of other states that still have them.

The results of the survey, conducted online April 17-23, were released when the Republican party again found itself in a predicament over the respect the party shows to gay and lesbian Americans. In an April 7 interview with the Associated Press, Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania compared homosexuality to polygamy, incest and adultery, prompting calls for his resignation.

In what many media commentators said was an opportunity to shore up the conservative base of the party, Republican leaders in the House and Senate offered their praise of Santorum. President Bush also gave his support to the embattled Senator. But the survey found that even among conservatives, there is no great love of sodomy laws.

Seven out of 10 Americans who characterize their personal ideology as "conservative" expressed opposition to state laws that regulate the private sexual relations of adults, regardless of their sexual orientation. Strong majority opposition was stronger in the East (89 percent) but solid nationwide, even in the South (76 percent).

"It is clear that an overwhelming majority of Americans believe the Supreme Court should overturn all state laws that interfere with private sexual relations between consenting adults, whether same sex or opposite-sex couples," Johnson said.



Romans 1:18-32

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Romans 13:3-4

3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:

4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

II Ki 23:6-7 And he brought out the grove from the house of the LORD, without Jerusalem, unto the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and stamped it small to powder, and cast the powder thereof upon the graves of the children of the people. And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.

1 Cor 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

Happiness is America under God's Law!
