Knight Ridder columnist Leonard Pitts Jr. wrote last week:
Five years ago, in an apartment in Houston, an obscene act was committed. And it wasn’t sex.
Pitts finds the obscenity in an antigay bigot’s filing of a false police report in order to secure the arrest of two gay men. And in the complicity of the government of Texas in the invasion of a private home.
Pitts asks whether the religious right only favors small government when lax regulation serves “Judeo-Christian” interests.
