CHICAGO - Let's say Tom Green is a handsome young NBA star with a lusty nature and some irresponsible habits. He has prolonged sexual relationships with several different women, and over the years he manages to father a couple dozen children. In those circumstances, no one would be surprised if Mr. Green's conduct earned him widespread scorn and ridicule. But we'd be very surprised if it got him sent to jail. The real Tom Green is a bit different. He's a pot-bellied, 53-year-old salesman, not a glamorous professional athlete.

A vote for allowing people of the same sex to marry is a vote against all who have committed to a traditional marriage and for a continued erosion of the family. To all those who are under the assumption of what is wrong with it should read the proposed law approved by the state Senate. It is not civil union, it is called marriage. And let the politicians who support it be honest and profess their support of incest and bigamy as the measure will lead to incest and bigamy to be recognized as forms of marriage as well.

But Senator Santorum actually offered a good argument for why the Supreme Court should rule in their favor in a case testing the constitutionality of state prohibitions on sodomy. The alarm bells went off when Mr. Santorum said in an interview that he feared a court ruling upholding the right of consenting adults to engage in private homosexual activity would lead down a perilous trail to additional expanded liberties.
