Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia delivered a rage-filled dissenting opinion on the court’s decision to declare of DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) unconstitutional, predictably renewing his continued obsession with “homosexual s*domy” and polygamy.
Needless to say, a man who spends so much time dwelling on the intricacies of gay men’s privates lives rightfully raises eyebrows.
In a rage filled dissent, this new-age bigot dismissed the majority’s inclusive reasoning as “legalistic argle-bargle.”
Mostly, he just seemed to feel sorry for himself.
“It is one thing for a society to elect change; it is another for a court of law to impose change by adjudging those who oppose it hostes humani generis, enemies of the human race,” Scalia wrote, accusing the majority of “declaring anyone opposed to same-sex marriage an enemy of human decency … In the majority’s telling, this story is black-and-white: Hate your neighbor or come along with us.”
“To hurl such accusations so casually demeans this institution,” said Scalia, before using his dissent to re-argue the legality of s*domy. Wednesday’s decision was inevitable, he said, when the court sanctioned “homosexual s*domy,” and struck down the Defense of Marriage Act fully legal same-sex marriage will inevitably follow.
“When the Court declared a constitutional right to homosexual s*domy, we were assured that the case had nothing, nothing at all to do with ‘whether the government must give formal recognition to any relationship that homosexual persons seek to enter,'” he wrote. “Now we are told that DOMA is invalid because it ‘demeans the couple, whose moral and sexual choices the Constitution protects.’ ”
“It takes real cheek for today’s majority to assure us, as it is going out the door, that a constitutional requirement to give formal recognition to same-sex marriage is not at issue here — when what has preceded that assurance is a lecture on how superior the majority’s moral judgment in favor of same-sex marriage is to the Congress’s hateful moral judgment against it. I promise you this: The only thing that will ‘confine’ the Court’s holding is its sense of what it can get away with.”
Not only did this Neanderthal display his obsession with gay men’s private lives, he also found the time to connect the loving union between same-sex couples to polygamy, noting “the Constitution neither requires nor forbids our society to approve of same-sex marriage, much as it neither requires nor forbids us to approve of no-fault divorce, polygamy, or the consumption of alcohol.”
It’s about time that this man steps down from America’s highest court. Anybody who has the gall to compare loving unions between same-sex couples to alcoholism and polygamy, and then speak of “homosexual s*domy” as if it is an ungodly act that needs to be approved by the federal government, must be kept as far away as possible from our judicial system.
