|Sexiest Girl Alive|
Dobson premonished the day when, as a result of Lawrence v. Texas, "daddies" would freely molest their little girls, and men will copulate with their donkeys. One thing would lead to another.
This argument is at best confused. Lawrence simply made it no longer criminal for gays to breathe and walk free. Remember that some states (post-Bowers) required people who discovered themselves to be gay to go the police station and register themselves as sex offenders.
Remember that, until last week, Utah's polygamists were de facto felons, criminal for their mere existence. So, if you follow the Santorum slope, we will devolve irreversibly into bEstiality (NOT BEASTiality !!) as soon as gays can wed, and polygs can avoid prison.
What these slippery slope exponents forget is that if there truly are people out there who ardently crave sex with their donkey or pet goat, they have probably been steaming up the barn for years already, irrespective of obscure SCOTUS decisions (e.g. DOMA, Prop' 8). Understanding this, Santorum had better join the farm vice squad and focus on rigorous enforcement of man/beast chastity.
The "slippery slope" argument appeals to the low IQ voter - the person who thinks that if a gay person gets a marriage license, his neighbors will conduct orgies in their basements, and naive Christians will start dating ewes.
The LDS Church spent millions (of its members' contributions) on preventing gay marriage licenses in Hawaii and California - - petrified of the slippery slope. Its ensuing, ill-fated victories are now coming back to haunt the Mormons. The Church's PR machine has the foresight of a small goldfish or Chicken Little.
Rest assured, at least 76 countries criminalize homosexuality. In Iran, it will cost you your life. If that feels better for you, go live there! In Iran, prostitution is a crime, so johns "marry" the hookers for the duration of the trick, and then get a "divorce" on the way out of the brothel. Legislating morality is at best a waste of energy and at worst a political deception.

Newsflashes: - the New Mexico supreme court just ruled in favor of gay marriage, and Canada just legalized prostitution nationwide. If you want to fix a country's problems, focus on outlawing usury banking. That way, people will be free and rich and mind their own business.
