    Yes, based on all the questioning about standing, SCOTUS does seem to be looking for a way out of deciding anything. (hence my statement about hesitating to rule at all)

    But then again, blogs and tweets based on court transcripts would have lead you to believe Obamacare was being overturned. So we'll see!

    Somehow that doesn't support your thesis.
    Or maybe not. You may believe you have the court decision pegged, and you may be right. But you just keep on counting those chickens.

    You misunderstand the use of emoticons.

    I make no such presumption. I'm just criticizing Scalia's obtuse and inflamatory question.

    Oh yes, you have been. I quoted where you plainly did. As to that last, you lack standing to make that assessment breathe life. As it is, just another example of hate speaking.

    Agreed to both. The question was a legitimate one and asked fairly. AND I too have seen the range in heterosexual (and homosexual) child rearing (no pun intended, but hey, now that it's out there ).

    I think that the gay marriage laws as is are unconstitutional. I'm also not one that believes there's substantially higher likelihood of a child having issues growing up with homosexual parents than with regular ones.

    That said, the outrage over Scalia's statement is ridiculous. The entire point of a judge in this situation is to ask questions to gather the most information and look at ALL SIDES and potential issues of a case. Like it or not, there is seemingly a divide in terms of what some people think in terms of the potential impact of homosexual couples raising children. Simply acknowledging that and asking about it is not out of line, bigoted, or irresponsible for a judge to do. On the contrary, that's part of what a judge SHOULD be doing as long as they're not definitively taking a stance during questioning one way or another...which there is no indication Scalia is doing such. Basically, what I see is a lot of people feeling like the ruling should absolutely go one particular way and attacking and lambasting anyone who dares to actually address this in a way that a court case should be addressed.
