namatad: Shouldnt scolia recuse himself on homosexuality cases?He is REQUIRED to obey the church and therefore lacks all impartiality.
PC LOAD LETTER: My cousin was his Law School roommate. Scalia may be a twat, but he's a very smart man.
Cadderpidder: All together now - let's pretend that politicians saying stupid things while talking out of their arse is a new thing.
PC LOAD LETTER: Scalia may be a twat, but he's a very smart man.
mrshowrules: Scalia is the last of a dying breed. We know hot that works out in the end.
vernonFL: In an interview with Jon Stewart, Rachel Maddow said that Scalia is a troll. He says things to intentionally get a rise out of the other Justices and the attorneys, staff and public who are present during arguments.He's a troll.
bdub77: mrshowrules: Scalia is the last of a dying breed. We know hot that works out in the end.Yeah but it's sure taking a goddamn long time to die.
mrshowrules: PC LOAD LETTER: My cousin was his Law School roommate. Scalia may be a twat, but he's a very smart man.Stupid is as stupid does./he's also a bigot
Babwa Wawa: vernonFL: In an interview with Jon Stewart, Rachel Maddow said that Scalia is a troll. He says things to intentionally get a rise out of the other Justices and the attorneys, staff and public who are present during arguments.He's a troll.Scalia's an ass, but I articles like this misrepresent his asshattery.Part of what folks do in the legal profession is draw and play games with analogies. "If this is legal, why not this? If this is illegal, why not that?" is a big part of the theory of law.The actual back and forth brings a microscope to the thinking of a particular justice, and in fact I like the fact that I know what Scalia's thinking, why he thinks it, and how he's likely to rule. It's a hell of a lot better than silence. Like that Clarence Thomas douche.
Karac: Scalia's dissent in Romer is a long lament over the supposed "special rights" being granted to people on the basis of sexual orientation.Gays do not want special rights; they want the same rights everyone else has. Gays do not want to be the only people allowed to enter into homosexual marriages, they'd be happy to allow 2 straight dudes to set up a sham gay marriage too.
InmanRoshi: He's just a strict literalist who believes the Constitution is a dead document.It's just uncanny how the strict literal dead Constitution falls on the right side of today's modern partisan lines 100% of the time.
hubiestubert: Yeah. It's more than time to get past this. Using the Bible to back you up on keeping rights from folks, when folks within said faith can't even agree on it, is automatically a violation of folks' right to worship freely. UUs. Methodists. Even some Baptists. Even Catholics. There is no consensus on this issue, and there are plenty of clergy who have stood on the matter of marriage equality.
abb3w: So, it's pretty unlikely he's going to support either Hollingsworth or Windsor. (It's not news, it's Fark.)
JerseyTim: I'm sure he'll say something stupid again today. Let's not all act shocked.
