    These people trying to rip apart what little moral fabric that remains in America:


    ACLU: Gay sex in public restrooms a constitutional right

    The ACLU has submitted a friend-of-the-court brief on behalf of Sen. Larry Craig, who has been engaged in protracted legal machinations to keep the issue of his guilt in an airport sex sting tied up in courts. All this is in an apparent effort to save face, stave off a Congressional investigation, and generate some thin justification for staying in office to the end of his term.

    However, thanks to the law of unintended consequences, the main thing the senator has managed to do is create an opportunity for the ACLU to think up new and creative kinds of constitutional mischief.

    The ACLU's brief is predicated on the premise that the senator was in fact soliciting for gay sex last summer in a Minneapolis airport restroom, which won't make the senator very happy since he has spent the last five months trying to withdraw his guilty plea for doing that very thing.

    Problematically, the ACLU argues that the senator was in fact entitled to engage in gay sex with a willing partner in a public restroom stall, since people who use such restrooms have, according to a 38-year-old Minnesota Supreme Court ruling, "a reasonable expectation of privacy."

    Never mind that, according to a legal analyst on Fox News, the 1970 ruling had to do only with prohibiting police from installing surveillance cameras that could peek into bathroom stalls, thus spying on ordinary citizens doing nothing more than answering a call of nature. The court correctly ruled that citizens should have a "reasonable expectation of privacy" when using a bathroom for its intended purpose.

    The court emphatically did not say that citizens using public restrooms as instant love nests were entitled to the same protection.

    The ACLU says that the intimacy the senator expected to engage in "would not have called attention to itself in a closed stall in the public restroom," an assertion which is ludicrous on its face. Sexual activity in public restrooms has been banned precisely because it cannot be effectively concealed and because it is in fact disturbing to other members of the public and to their children.

    The city of Boise, for instance, had to enact a special ordinance because homosexual encounters in public park bathrooms were becoming such a nuisance to families using the park system.

    It's difficult to know what part of the word "public" in the phrase "public restroom" the ACLU does not understand.

    Since, in the ACLU's twisted view, private homosexual sex, even in a bathroom stall, is a lawful act (perhaps alluding to the fantastically misguided Lawrence decision of 2003), then soliciting for it (which the ACLU calls a form of protected speech) cannot itself be unlawful.

    No court, however, should even allow the ACLU to cite the First Amendment's freedom of speech plank, for the simple reason that the Founders were seeking to protect political speech, not solicitation for gay sex.

    Thomas Jefferson, who wrote a Virginia law that specified castration as the punishment for homosexual behavior, would roll over in his own Memorial to see the Constitution bastardized in this way.

    But thanks to egregious judicial activism, we are now just one renegade judge away from having gay sex in a public restroom magically transformed into a constitutional right. And if that happens, the families of America will have the ACLU and a senator from Idaho to thank.

    lol, it's not even close to the truth. The ACLU is concerned with the solicitation, not the sex act. In other words, they feel that making a pass at someone is a protected right in a private place.

    ACLU Statement In Support Of Senator Larry Craig’s Efforts To Withdraw His Guilty Plea (1/16/2008)

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    CONTACT: media@aclu.org; (212) 549-2666NEW YORK – The American Civil Liberties Union supports Senator Larry Craig’s attempt to have his guilty plea withdrawn because the Minnesota law under which he was arrested is unconstitutionally broad. The statute punishes “offensive, obscene or abusive language” which tends to arouse “alarm, anger or resentment” in others. Clearly, this law has the potential to ensnare and criminalize legal, constitutionally protected free speech, including solicitation for private sex.

    The Minnesota Supreme Court and other courts have found that a closed bathroom stall is a private location. The police have no business spying on people in places where there is an expectation of privacy. The ACLU is in no way advocating sex in public bathrooms. If law enforcement is genuinely interested in stopping sex in public bathrooms rather than ensnaring people in sting operations, posting a sign prohibiting it and announcing police patrols would be much more effective and would meet constitutional requirements.

    Sure you weren't forced to retire because of your homosexuality? This thread is about the ACLU supporting gay sex acts in public restrooms. It is illegal and the law should be strictly enforced. Don't try to distract with your personal attacks gay squid.

    The issue of privacy in bathroom stall is in regards to using to the bathroom for its intended purpose, not for solicitation for gay sex.

    You can't retire as a homosexual stupid. However, I'm thinking that your REMF ass is doing this because you don't have any other options, so therefore you're just manipulating and using the system, without putting any real value into it.

    Kinda like you do with these message boards.

    Quit trolling with your ad-hominems you lunatic, you were probably forced to retire because of the homosexuality, that is forced to retire in lieu of being administratively separated.


    Getting back on topic, sex in public bathrooms is a crime and the ACLU supports sex acts, specifically gay sex acts. You probably support it too, don't you? lol

    Again, you show exactly how much you DON'T know about the military. You CANNOT retire if you've been processed as a homosexual you idiot dirtbag. In order to retire, you've got to make 20 full years, and they have to be honorable. Are you sure you've served in the military, or, like everything else you post, it's just yet another lie. And....they don't "force you to retire" in lieu of administrative separation. That's only for officers douchebag.

    You really DON'T know much about the military do you Chucking Ass? I'm guessing that you bought a pair of cammies and decided that you were gonna play flyboy, because you thought it would get you dates or some shit.

    Idiot, many senior officers and NCOs with enough time to retire often retire when they're about to be busted or just before they're busted, you're a moron if you suggest otherwise.
