Scalia, I need your final answer…

“State laws against bigamy, same-sex marriage, adult incest, prostitution, masturbation, adultery, fornication, bestiality, and obscenity are likewise sustainable only in light of Bowers’ validation of laws based on moral choices. Every single one of these laws is called into question by today’s decision; the Court makes no effort to cabin the scope of its decision to exclude them from its holding.”
Antonin Scalia, on the Lawrence v. Texas Supreme Court ruling

Since he wants to get into everyone’s bedroom and return domain over the prohibition of sodomy (and masturbation!?) back to the states, it seems like Scalia would like to weigh in on whether he’d be breaking the law if he could wind back the clock. (NYP):

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.”
