    LOL-that's a moronic statement. I bet you think Obama is smarter than Scalia and anyone who supports lesbian marriage more intelligent as well

    I don't mind conservative justices. I adore Posner, as you well know. But Scalia is a boor.
    Posner's sort of a cowboy

    Re: Justice Scalia compares homosexuality to murder.

    Here's what a real constitutional scholar thinks of the thug, Scalia.

    I am not a fan of Justice Antonin Scalia's work on the United States Supreme Court. When the Justice Scalia fan club is formed, I'm not joining. Since I'm liberal and he's conservative, this is hardly a surprise. But my dislike for Justice Scalia's jurisprudence is much greater than an ideological disagreement. To be blunt, there is a disingenuousness to Justice Scalia's decision-making and a meanness to his judicial rhetoric that I believe are undesirable and inappropriate.

    In this paper, I want to make three points. First, Justice Scalia's approach to the Religion Clauses is unduly restrictive and would leave little constitutional protection for either free exercise or the Establishment Clause. Second, Justice Scalia's jurisprudence is founded on the premise that the Supreme Court should decide cases without Justices making value choices. 1 I believe that this is impossible and that Justice Scalia, and all the Justices, constantly and inevitably make value choices in deciding constitutional cases. What disturbs me about Justice Scalia's jurisprudence is that by denying that it is making value choices, it pretends that its decisions are a result of a neutral judicial methodology. As a result his value choices are not defended, but rather hidden behind a claim that the results have been discovered not chosen.

    In the meantime, turtle gets his constitutional theory from O'Reilly and Beck!

    Deflection by personal insult. It's all you got.

    Now WHAT does the foremost consitutional scholar in the US say about Scalia.

    Oh yeah:

    https://litigation-essentials.lexisn...3d3783ae296532

    For those who want to see Scalia's crank theories totally debunked, google The Jurisprudence of Justice Scalia: A Critical Appraisal by Erwin Chemerinsky. It will come up as a PDF download.

    After Chermerinsky wrote this, no serious scholar of the Constitution has ever taken Scalia seriously again.

    76-year-olds didn't push the gay agenda forward. Young blood did that. If we can't cut old men a break, we're no less bigots than they are.

    On another forum I go to, there's a derisive term for this sort of attitude: "Moderate Heroism". It's not considered a compliment.

    There's nothing hypocritical about hating the hater, because hate itself, in the abstract, isn't the enemy.
