(( BY A SIX TO THREE DECISION THE U .S. SUPREME COURT OVERTURNED A TEXAS LAW THAT CRIMINALIZED HOMOSEXUAL SODOMY STATING IT VIOLATES CONSTITUTIONAL GUARANTEE OF PRIVACY. WRITING FOR THE MAJORITY, JUSTICE ANTHONY KENNEDY CONTENDED HOMOSEXUALS HAVE "THE FULL RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN PRIVATE CONDUCT WITHOUT THE INTERVENTION OF THE GOVERNMENT."
RUTH HARLOW/LAMBDA LEGAL DEFENSE: This is a very strong ruling that we all, as individuals, whether gay or straight, have the liberty to choose who we will love and how we'll do that in the privacy of our own homes.

OPPONENTS SAY IT'S A TERRIBLE RULING.
BERNARD REESE/NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL LAWYER: Every society that has adopted this way of life has walked towards destruction. The court has said today that morality, maters of right and wrong behavior do not matter in the law.
THE CASE INVOLVED TWO HOUSTON MEN. WHEN POLICE RESPONDED TO, WHAT TURNED OUT TO BE, A FALSE BURGLARY REPORT, THEY FOUND JOHN LAWRENCE AND TYRON GARNER HAVING SEX. THEY WERE JAILED BRIEFLY BECAUSE UNDER TEXAS LAW, IT WAS ILLEGAL FOR HOMOSEXUALS TO ENGAGE IN SODOMY EVEN IF THEY'RE CONSENTING ADULTS IN THE PRIVACY OF THEIR OWN HOMES.
THREE OTHER STATES HAVE SIMILAR LAWS, WHILE NINE MORE BAN SODOMY FOR BOTH HOMO AND HETEROSEXUAL MEN AND WOMEN.
THE HIGH COURT'S RULING SEEMS TO BE APPLICABLE TO AT LEAST SOME OF THE ANTI SODOMY LAWS IN OTHER STATES.
AS THE MAJORITY OF JUSTICES PUT IT: THE STATE CANNOT MAKE THE PRIVATE, SEXUAL CONDUCT OF HOMOSEXUALS A CRIME.
