Remember Lonnie Latham, the Southern Baptist preacher arrested at a Baptist convention in Oklahoma City for soliciting sex from an undercover cop? Well after years of railing against homosexuality and those damn liberal judicial activists whose rulings destroy morality, he’s suddenly discovered the wisdom of Lawrence v Texas:
His attorney, Mack Martin, filed a motion to have the misdemeanor lewdness charge thrown out, saying the Supreme Court ruled in the 2003 decision Lawrence v. Texas that it was not illegal for consenting adults to engage in private homosexual acts.
And in this case, he’s right. There was no offer to exchange money, so it was nothing more than one guy asking another to have a little sex in private. The ACLU has filed a brief on his behalf, making the irony even more complete. I guess those rights don’t look so “special” now, do they?
