So was Brown v. Board wrong also? It was overturning policies implemented by a political majority based on animus toward a specific group?
No because I think the separate but equal doctrine was an erroneous application of the Equal Protection Clause. I'm not sure how any interpretation of the Due Process Clause can invalidate state laws like the one in Lawrence. It's obviously, as Justice Stewart would say, an "uncommonly silly law." But it's not unconstitutional.
No. Criminalizing consensual human behavior because people have antagonistic views based on religion ≠ requiring a optometrist prescription for new glasses.
