Yippee for the rest of the country -- one less activist, heartless, arrogant judge with a penchant for saying and writing vile things.
My favorite story about Scalia is this:
WHEN U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia spoke Tuesday night at NYU's Vanderbilt Hall, "The room was packed with some 300 students and there were many protesters outside because of Scalia's vitriolic dissent last year in the case that overturned the Texas law against gay sex," our source reports. "One gay student asked whether government had any business enacting and enforcing laws against consensual sodomy. Following Scalia's answer, the student asked a follow-up: 'Do you sodomize your wife?' The audience was shocked, especially since Mrs. Scalia [Maureen] was in attendance. The justice replied that the question was unworthy of an answer."Of course, the question was worthy of an answer...and at least temporarily, Scalia was shamed....
We need more impertinent questions in America, not fewer.
Added 2/15 6:12 pm: More of Scalia's wit:
Many Americans do not want persons who openly engage in homosexual conduct as partners in their business, as scoutmasters for their children, as teachers in their children's schools, or as boarders in their home. They view this as protecting themselves and their families from a lifestyle that they believe to be immoral and destructive.By that logic, America would have never freed its slaves.
