    Obviously you have never read one of Scalia's decisions. Carry on and come back when you have....until then it is pointless trying to have a conversation with you.

    I decided to remove my prior comments as they could have seemed too personal.

    Basically, you're wrong.

    Let me guess....you are probably one of those who think that Thomas' silence and non-participation on the Court is a sign of his "Brilliance"....LOL..

    Re: Supreme Court to take up same sex marriage issues in April

    I hesitated on commenting on this because I didn't want to "out" someone who was very very close to the Supreme Court. But I found an article about Sally and her partner Betsy. Sally was Chief Justice Rehnquist and Roberts Chief of Staff for many years. At the time, she had a wife, and two adopted kids (she still does). Sally is one of the most brilliant thinkers I know, and a wonderful person, as is her partner.

    When we talk about gay marriage, remember, the supreme court justices have friends that are gay. Sally once worked for Justice Thomas, and was beloved by all the Justices.

    They saw first hand that someone that may not have their preferences in sexuality, or political bent can do their job, and do it well, and sexual orientation means nothing.

    Anyway, I found this great article about her, and the Supreme Court. Give it a read.

    Well it would no more influence the rulings than not knowing anyone gay influenced the total lack of progress before walker v texas. Fair is fair i guess

    Some may see it as bias, but the thing is, it's basically a microcosm of what's driven gay acceptance throughout the country. If a judge had to recuse themselves cause they know or worked with someone gay, there won't be many left, just monsters like scalia. It reminds me though of a few years back when judge Walker issued his ruling that had a great impact, but opponents just attacked his sexuality instead of consider that the opinion he wrote was absolutely correct. That's really all that matters, whether their arguments are legally and morally defensible

    Good move, and no, I'm not, you are.

    Well, I don't need to defend myself here, Scalia is widely known as one of the intellectuals on the Court. So go ahead, prove that's he's not, prove that he's an idiot. I'll wait. Anyone trying that will likely prove that they are one instead. Let the comedy begin!

    She actually got along great with Scalia, a few years back, she had Kennedy and Scalia come speak at her college, and she enlisted my brother to take Scalia out dove hunting. Of course, he had to do a hell of a security check ahead of time. He said he was a really great guy.

    While it it a fact that in terms of knowledge, wit and overall intellect Scalia is very well endowed, it is also a fact that history is replete with brilliant people who have done the wrong thing. Scalia's bias is undeniable and irrefutable.

    If the Supreme Court does the bang up job it did with health care, sexual perversion will pervade society. The next step they will be looking at whether child molesters should have equal rights. Next thing, people will be marrying their pets.
