Public Advocate files Supreme Court Brief Defending Moral Standards
Washington, DC -- Public Advocate of the United States, a non-profit organization based in northern Virginia, has filled an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court in the case of Lawrence and Garner vs. Texas, in which two homosexual men are seeking to overturn Texas' Homosexual Conduct Law, after they were arrested for violating the act in 1998.
The group's brief urges the Court to leave the statute unmolested by judicial advocates who seek to legislate from the bench. It points out that contrary to the claims of the petitioners; the adult decision to enter into homosexual activities is not a constitutionally protected riaght.
"…the Homosexual Conduct Law is no more a condemnation of a person's homosexual orientation than a murder statute is a condemnation of a murder's homicidal orientation," points out the brief.
Public Advocate Executive Director Eugene Delgaudio announced the filing of the brief in the case, which will be heard in late March, and was optimistic that the Court would use the opportunity to affirm the right of states to protect American families.
"The case of these homosexual extremists is not based on jurist prudence or the Constitution, but rather on a political strategy to attack traditional families in courts, since elected legislators have continuously rejected their outrageous agenda," claims Delgaudio.
Public Advocate has been fighting for family rights as a 501.c.4 non-profit organization for twenty-five years. The group's brief is available upon request. For more information contact Jesse R. Binnall at (703) 582-7924 or by email at [email protected].
