Big Tony on 'homosexual sodomy' and SCOTUS
I thought that I’d have something substantial to say about these remarks, but really — he’s just an *sswipe. Raw Story:
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia insists that the constitution does not protect the right to an abortion, or “homosexual sodomy,” in this video clip from the Associated Press.
…”My job is simply to say if those things you find desirable are contained in the Constitution,” he explained. “Nobody ever thought that they were contained in the rights â€“ in the bill of rights. Which is why abortion and homosexual sodomy were criminal for 200 years.”
Remember this winner?
“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.”
