— America’s favorite Supreme COurt Justice Antonin Scalia insisting that he doesn’t have anything against the homosexuals, despite wildly contradictory statements in the past, and defending his DOMA decision in a lengthy profile from New York Magazine.
I have friends that I know, or very much suspect, are homosexual. Everybody does…I don’t know about my grandchildren. I know about my children. I don’t think they and I differ very much. But I’m not a hater of homosexuals at all. I still think it’s Catholic teaching that it’s wrong. Okay? But I don’t hate the people that engage in it. In my legal opinions, all I’ve said is that I don’t think the Constitution requires the people to adopt one view or the other…Americans have a right to feel that way. They have a democratic right to do that, and if it is to change, it should change democratically, and not at the ukase of a Supreme Court.”
