Jonah: I think you may be conceding too much to Andrew. He thinks laws against sodomy are noxious. Many social conservatives think the same thing about same-sex marriage laws. His answer to the former is that they cannot be tolerated anywhere in the nation.

It’s a preference for judicial rule when it accords with his policy views.
