    Not if Scalia isn't

    Michael Russnow: Scalia's Gay Stance Is Unacceptable: Recusal From Supreme Court Deliberations on DOMA and California Proposition 8 Is Called For

    In his dissent in a 1996 Supreme Court decision overturning a voter-approved, anti-gay referendum in Colorado, Scalia wrote in support of the voter majority, "I had thought that one could consider certain conduct reprehensible -- murder, for example, or polygamy or cruelty to animals -- and could exhibit even 'animus' toward such conduct."

    And in 2003, after the Supreme Court negated a law in Texas that had criminalized same-sex "sodomy," Scalia wrote in dissent, "The Texas statute undeniably seeks to further the belief of its citizens that certain forms of sexual behavior are 'immoral and unacceptable' -- the same interest furthered by criminal laws against fornication, bigamy, adultery, adult incest, bestiality and obscenity."

    Justice Scalia's bias clearly hampers his judgment to deliver a balanced view of what should be acceptable or not under our Constitution.

    Great. Now what does that have to do with this? Oh right, nothing. If you have nothing to defend your argument it's best to just stop posting.

    Show me where Roberts based legal decisions, as Scalia did, against homosexuals with prejudice, and then who me where Roberts has mentioned he favors same sex marriage because of a relative.

    Re: Chief Justice John Robertsí lesbian cousin to attend Proposition 8 arguments

    Chief Justice John Roberts' first cousin, a lesbian, will attend Tuesday's oral arguments in the first gay marriage case to reach the Supreme Court. She will be in the seating section reserved for the justice's family and close friends.
    Jean Podrasky, 48, told the Los Angeles Times that she hopes her first cousin will decide to overturn California's gay marriage ban, called Proposition 8, so that she can marry her longtime girlfriend. “He is a smart man,” Podrasky told the paper of the George W. Bush-appointed justice. “He is a good man. I believe he sees where the tide is going. I do trust him. I absolutely trust that he will go in a good direction.”
    Someone who doesn't understand at all her cousin's job. And what his cousin thinks holds no water here.
