Maybe he’s fucking one of his children.
He is a religious extremist who believes contraception is anti-life. Catholic nonsense.
“…by common consent the leading intellectual force on the Court.” IS KINSLEY FUCKING KIDDING??? That old Mussolini worshipper has never failed to paint himself into untenable intellectual positions in his zeal to promote his medieval agenda.
Actually, that whole commentary re: Lawrence is incorrect. If people would actually take the time to read the dissent, they would note that Scalia never defended the States’ sodomy laws, only the right of the states to ban sodomy. Furthermore, he notes that because of that decision, community morality is no longer a licit justification for a law, which is a bad thing, or else we wouldn’t have such laws as smoking bans in some states.
It would behoove people to actually read what Justice Scalia’s opinions actually say, before spouting off about the results. He cannot, as he, and 108 of the 110 people who held the position of Supreme Court Justice before and concurrent with him, would say, pay attention to the practical consequences of the law. That’s the legislature’s job. The courts can only apply and adjudicate the law. They cannot care about the consequences.
Fuck Antonin Scalia, the Raich case is what cements his legacy as a hypocritical piece of shit.
GayGOP I totally agree, people should do more reading and less commenting. And you are right also, the courts can only interpret the laws, not make them. Or they aren’t supposed to.
However, where I disagree with you big time is when Scalia has the chance to interpret the law in the least restrictive, least punitive way, he seldom does.
Justice Scalia is one who literally follows the whole “go forth, be fruitful and multiply” shebang. One of his sons is a Catholic priest so you know there’s no such discussion of sex Ed and use of contraceptives in that family.
He plays himself as this strict constructionist jurist but practically all of his votes on the court are laced with his own narrow ideology.
