Conservatives do not believe in the right to privacy

If you think that once they’re done Roe vs. Wade, they will not come for Oberefell, Laurent, Gideon, and Griswold, I just don’t know what to tell you. The Conservatives do not believe that a right to privacy exists in the Constitution. They say it all the time, and Dick Wolf even asked the late Fred Thompson to say it on Law and order. They believe that any decision based on such a right is illegitimate and liable to be overturned. (Judge Clarence Thomas and the late Judge Antonin Scalia became snotty in their views regarding what Scalia called “the so-called right to privacy.” The background to Scalia’s contempt was Lawrence v. Texas, the landmark decision that decriminalized gay sex. Nice guy, Tony.) And, in case you’re wondering where this all might start, take a look at the misdeeds of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. From NBC News:

A Catholic Diocese in Michigan has been thrown into the national limelight after a eminent priest and author shared his advice on transgender members and those having same-sex relationships on social media this week. The viral directive, which the Diocese of Marquette released in July, says these worshipers are prohibited from being baptized or taking communion unless they have “repented.” in a same-sex relationship or having same-sex sex is. The Vatican too ruled in March that priests cannot bless same-sex unions.

Obviously, this is another example of a wingnut American bishop who doesn’t like Papa Francesco too much. And the official text of the “guidance” reads as if it had been written in 1957 by a nun who grew up in a cardboard box away from other human beings.

The sacrament of marriage, the matrimonial covenant, is a permanent association of a man and a woman ordained for the procreation and education of children and for the good of the spouses (c. 1055). Christian spouses are strengthened by the grace of this sacrament to love each other with the love of Jesus Christ. It is only in the context of a marriage between a man and a woman that intercourse can express a permanent love, because they have given themselves all their life by the promises they made to each other on their wedding day. . Outside of marriage, sexual activity cannot express permanent love.

Tell that to those bishops who kept moving child molesters from ward to ward.

I mean, holy orders, Batman. Who thinks like that? Humanae Vitae was chock full of this kind of anti-human nonsense, and it doesn’t smell better with age. But those kind of times is when the fire starts. Very quickly, he passed from the internal politics of the Church to the secular politics of the day. There is no dearth of wing welfare legal workshops ready to set up lawsuits to rekindle any threadbare argument with the latest flair. And, before you know it, your ability to purchase contraceptives by mail is hanging by a thread. Pour enough holy oil on it and any slope becomes slippery.
