Judge Richard Posner is Wrong on Marriage
Liberty Counsel, August 29, 2014
Washington, DC - Judge Richard Posner of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has become a superstar to the homosexual rights movement after Tuesday's appeals court hearing on Indiana and Wisconsin's natural marriage amendments.
The positions of this Reagan-appointed judge are influenced by sexual deviant Alfred Kinsey, widely considered the father of the sexual revolution, whose research transformed America's morals and sex laws. Kinsey's practices were shoddy, at best, and shockingly deviant and criminal at worst, as he participated in or encouraged the sexual molestation of hundreds of children to gather "research data."
"Kinsey and the Kinsey Institute have perpetrated a massive fraud on the United States and the world," said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. There are shocking reports from victims who were molested as children, in which deviant molesters timed their "sexual responses" and reported the results to Alfred Kinsey. Kinsey's 1948 and 1953 books on human sexual behavior contain tables of information about sexual responses in children as young as 2 months old, Staver points out. A quick read of Table 35 in his book, Sexuality in the Human Male, leaves little doubt that Kinsey participated in criminal and disgusting behavior. Several tables record how long the children needed to be stimulated to achieve "orgasm," and others record how many "orgasms" the children achieved in given periods of time.
Despite Kinsey's flawed and criminal propaganda, Judge Posner unashamedly relies upon Kinsey's work. Writing in Sex and Reason, Judge Posner said, "The two Kinsey reports remain the high-water mark of descriptive sexology." Judge Posner calls Kinsey the "central figure" in the "scholarly science" of sexology. (Richard A. Posner, Sex and Reason, p. 19 (Harvard University Press 1992).
Staver concluded, "It takes this kind of absurdity to say, as Judge Posner did on Tuesday, that marriage as one man and one woman derives from 'a tradition of hate...and savage discrimination' of homosexuals."
