    Re: Justice Scalia compares homosexuality to murder.

    It's fascinating that a self-professed 'libertarian' rushes to the defense of Antonin "never met a mandatory sentence he didn't like" Scalia. It's almost like there's artifice going on here.

    More hysterical BS-what are you reading-the Soros Law school? BTW where did you get your law degree

    the guy you cite is a major league gun hater who said that individual rights are subservient to "restricting violence" when it comes to guns. THe same argument could be used for court created rights liberals love such as Miranda and Gideon.

    SCOTUS: Scalia on the defensive over gay rights - First Read
    This is an example where the comparison is so controversial that the primary point is over shadowed. He's trying to say the some moral values are legislated but he makes an extremely labored comparison between murder and homosexuality that just doesn't work.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    In this tome, Chemerinsky shows how Scalia make one bad faith argument after the next.

    I never said I agreed with the man on every or most issues. Its fun watching people who have no clue about constitutional scholarship whining about a guy because they don't like his decisions on a few well publicized issues. I don't much like lots of Souter's decisions but he was a brilliant justice as well

    and I would bet there is no one on this board with the intellectual gifts of Justice Scalia. Many legal scholars believe he is the most gifted justice to ever sit on the court. Only Roberts and Alito can match his academic record.
    Yeah, I confused him with Thomas, he's still a dumbass though.

    I think it depends on the argument. DOMA could be tossed on enumerated powers but same sex marriage in the states that allow them could be upheld under full-faith and credit. I don't think you are going to get a bright-line ruling that it is or is not universally applied just yet IMHO.

    and Yet Scalia is a USSC justice and Chemerinsky didn't even make it to the 9th circuit

    bummer

    You asked for scholarship showing Scalia was a boob. Now I bet you wish you didn't.

    I don't like Scalia because his rulings are ham-fisted and moralistic and utterly unimaginative.

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