Quoth the publication:
In 1868, when the 39th Congress was debating and ultimately proposing the 14th Amendment, I don’t think anybody would have thought that equal protection applied to sex discrimination, or certainly not to sexual orientation. So does that mean that we’ve gone off in error by applying the 14th Amendment to both?
And Scalia’s scathing response against a Constitutional Republic (what the United States is classified as):
Yes, yes. Sorry, to tell you that. … But, you know, if indeed the current society has come to different views, that’s fine. You do not need the Constitution to reflect the wishes of the current society. Certainly the Constitution does not require discrimination on the basis of sex. The only issue is whether it prohibits it. It doesn’t. Nobody ever thought that that’s what it meant. Nobody ever voted for that. If the current society wants to outlaw discrimination by sex, hey we have things called legislatures, and they enact things called laws. You don’t need a constitution to keep things up-to-date. All you need is a legislature and a ballot box. You don’t like the death penalty anymore, that’s fine. You want a right to abortion? There’s nothing in the Constitution about that. But that doesn’t mean you cannot prohibit it. Persuade your fellow citizens it’s a good idea and pass a law. That’s what democracy is all about. It’s not about nine superannuated judges who have been there too long, imposing these demands on society.
This man, whose court has voted against the rights of people and in favor of corporations a staggering 88% of the time — that would be 9 out of 10 — since 2011, has clearly abandoned any precept of having judicial jurisprudence and replaced it with his own personal bigoted viewpoints. This isn’t even up for debate no matter how much I disagree with the man personally. His opinions are replacing the rule of law in this nation.
I guess it’s okay because Supreme Court Justices are not held to a judicial standard of ethics like every other judge in the nation. They are exempt. I now wonder why that is because clearly they are not all held to ethical standards in being appointed to this position. If you think that this is bad then I must warn you there are even more extreme judges out there.
Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore believes in theocracy, and was even kicked off the bench of the State Supreme Court before he was reinstated because of his refusal to enforce the Constitution’s Separation of Church and State.
Women, LGBT, Latinos, Blacks, minorities…beware! More of this is what you can expect if you don’t show up at the ballot box. Our next President will more than likely replace two Justices over the next decade. Now is not the time to become complacent.
