Pre-nups or Pre-'Lawrence': What do 'protect marriage' groups *really* want?

by Jeremy Hooper

While most social conservatives don't come out and admit it, the "traditional marriage" movement's real problem is not even with marriage equality itself, but rather with the Lawrence vs. Texas ruling that overturned this nation's "sodomy" laws. Which of course means that most within this movement would be quite happy if private, consensual sex was criminalized, the inverse of Lawrence's justice.

But sometimes they do admit what's apparent to those of us who cover this stuff. This month, in its official magazine, it's the North Carolina Family Policy Council that's quite plainly doing so, with NCFPC staffer Mary Summa, J.D. (who once worked for Jesse Helms), writing a whole article decrying Lawrence and how it "opened the legal floodgates for future legal attacks on 'morality laws.'” Check it out:
