Sorry to nit-pick... but SC ranks #2 in the US in peach production - GA is #3 behind us. CA is number one... but they don't have our anal-inspired water tower. As for fornication... well... I refer you back to the original post... ^^^ up there.

Fornicate at will? Poor Will.

The great prohibition is over, rejoice and rise from the shadows my Atlanta friends, our persecution is over!

During this era of criminalization of the human urges, we have been maintaining our lives in secret, in speakeasies whispered between only those who saught to quench their thirst to desire the flesh! Yes, with these secret locations we call "V.I.P. Champagne Rooms" and "high school parking lots" the Confederacy of Patriots for Fornication has been operating in the utmost secrecy. No longer! Flood, flood upon to the streets! We shalt fornicate where we choose, for our mighty hands have spanked the booty of lady justice, and the blind slut likes it!

Let's Get It On!

The fornication loving peoples of Georgia may think they owe McClure a debt of gratitude, but let's not overlook the invaluable assist from the underage girl, identified only as G.D.

Not only did the underage girl in question invite her boyfriend up (against her parent's wishes & the prevailing laws of the state) for the express purposes of having sex, but she propped a chair up against her bedroom door so that no one would interupt. Later, the article mentions that the girl "at the time faced other charges unrelated to the bedroom incident and was sentenced to boot camp and probation"

This girl is at least three kinds of dirty, and possibly more. I maintain there should be a national holiday named in her honor, once she is legally old enough that her name can be disclosed, that is.

Before we were married, my ex-wife's then current husband called the Smyrna cops and tried to have us arrested for fornication. The cops just laughed.

My ex-wife's then current husband then kidnapped her and her father called the Smyrna cops and tried to have him arrested. The cops just laughed.

Welcome to Georgia! ;-P

jonson - she was legally old enough, age of consent is 16 in Georgia (as stated above and in the article)

I wonder if the laws against fornication in Georgia had anything to do with the high rates of divorce and extramarital sex (generally the highest in the US, I've read) below the "Bible Belt"? -- No, probably not (on the books long before this trend emerged). Still....

I friend of mine who used to teach in Arkansas explained it to me this way; "There are these heavy duty prescriptions (Biblically based) against premarital sex. So a lot of people get married just to HAVE SEX. Then they realize...'Oh my God! Who the HELL is ths person?'..."
