Does Sex Deserve More Protection than Faith?

Sincere Prayer

The irresponsible media hype surrounding the so-called “Battle of Indiana” emphasized the issue of gay rights—even though not one word in the Hoosier State’s religious liberty law impacted the lives or liberties of gays and lesbians. The press promoted the pernicious idea that legislation protecting the right of people of faith to follow their consciences somehow diminished the right of sexual minorities to follow their orientations and instincts in intimate arrangements.

 

Actually, private sexual behavior among consenting adults, as well as religious decisions and practices, both deserve protection from an intrusive government. What the left argues on this issue is that sex is more important than faith and deserves more official protection.

 

This is an absurd proposition when the First Amendment to the Constitution explicitly protects religious expression—yet nothing in our founding documents protects or limits human intimacy or eroticism.

    Faith has been used in the past to deprive people of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The religious groups who fought marriage equality in Indiana were THE SAME groups promoting RFRA. Get your facts straight, Michael!
