    Scuzlia

    As much an embarrassment to the court as Bush was to the presidency.

    Very deep in the closet he may be, do you think?

    Well the bastard is 76 years old, and terribly overweight. If the country were really lucky, he would have a coronary in the next couple of years, and Obama could appoint a replacement.

    I still cannot comprehend why Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would have Justice Scalia as her best friend. It's mind-boggling.

    ScaliaToday’s opinion is the product of a Court, which is the product of a law-profession culture, that has largely signed on to the so-called homosexual agenda, by which I mean the agenda promoted by some homosexual activists directed at eliminating the moral opprobrium that has traditionally attached to homosexual conduct


    He says that like it's a bad thing.

    I mean half the words that come out of his mouth are idiotic. I just don't understand how someone who has this much power in America, actually believes there's a parallel to sodomy and murder.

    By the way, if he ever, has a gay sex scandal, oh I hope America comes down on him hard! And yes I meant the pun!

    EDIT: Also love the fact that this man, is going to be one the voices that decides our rights, when he has said gay partners are nothing more than roommates...(And thats one of the least offensive things he has said or written)

    Keep friends close, and enemies closer.

    It's actually pretty easy if you think about it a certain way. Ideologues are more prone to befriending ideologues - whatever that ideology is - than moderates. Because moderation is, in many ways and especially in politics, stupid and lazy.

    Imagine Ginsberg wants to build a 100 ft bridge over a ravine. Now imagine Scalia objects to building the bridge: he doesn't agree that we even need to cross the ravine, so why are we building a bridge? But Kennedy comes in and offers the "moderate" choice: we split the difference and build 50 ft of bridge out into the middle of nowhere.

    Ginsberg and Scalia can respect each other for having serious disputes about an issue. I don't think they respect the moderate who has no grasp of the issue and doesn't seem to care if the solution is a real one.

    Not really all that odd. They both served as justices on the Court of Appeal. On that court there would have been many justices but only three, picked by lot, would work on any particular case. So they would not have worked on very many cases together there, and at that level, very few cases would involve constitutional issues - most would be very dry - just statutory interpretation. Jeffrey Toobin said they shared a love of opera, and that was the basis of their friendship.

    You know....I think that a lot of Scalia's opinions on gay people comes back to tribalism. I'm sure that the people he is close with get a kick out of him saying things that make it sound ok to be a bigot without thinking of themselves as being one. I'm sure that he is probably proud of it too. He probably gets a lot of pats on the backs from the people close to him.

    One thing for sure: the man does not belong on the Supreme Court.

    I'm amused by the quote where he suggests tolerating homosexuality is a slippery slope to tolerating murder.

    Can no one shut him up at the moment he makes those comments with a quick rejoinder? "So, your Honor, being homosexual takes away the rights of other humans like murder does?" or even better, "Yes, tolerating homosexuals is a slippery slope to tolerating Italians and Jews."

    Scalia is an utter bigot who has used his power to harm the lives of others. He is like a white supremacist, only worse, because he has more influence.
    He voted to criminalize gay relationships, which would make all gay people subject to arrest and imprisonment.
    Keep in mind that this was the one Supreme Court justice that Romney singled out as his ideal model for his own nominations to the court if he became president.
    YET ANOTHER REASON our country dodged a massive bullet by rejecting Romney.

    Don't forget Scott Brown!
    (then again that particular bullet is likely coming back again)

    Very well put. Plus, some people are drawn to be people who challenge them intellectually.

    While I disagree with most things Scalia believe, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that he was confirmed by a 98-0 margin in a Democratic controlled Senate.

    ^
    I wonder how many of those would take back their votes if they could? I really doubt that the people that voted for him at that time realized what kind of Justice he would become.

    Justice Scalia’s Majoritarian Theocracy

    THE Supreme Court has decided four major cases furthering gay rights. Justice Antonin Scalia has written a bitter dissent from each.

    Actually, it was a Republican-controlled senate. The big battle was over Rehnquist, while Scalia just kept his mouth shut and sailed through. (I know, seems hard to believe.) The Democrats regained the majority in the next election, which was how they were able to reject Bork. That was a narrowly-averted disaster.
