Justice Scalia Places Homosexuality, Murder and Bestiality on the Same Footing

Scalia - pig   http://mariopiperni.com/

Antonin Scalia is one of the Supreme Court justices who will be ruling on marriage equality next year. This is what he had to say when asked why he finds no difference between laws banning sodomy and those barring bestiality and murder.

“I don’t think it’s necessary, but I think it’s effective,” Scalia said, adding that legislative bodies can ban what they believe to be immoral.”

“It’s a form of argument that I thought you would have known, which is called the ‘reduction to the absurd…if we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder? Can we have it against other things?”

Any doubt as to which way Scalia will vote next summer? Scalia does ‘fair and balanced’ in the same way that Fox does news.

What this underscores is how important the Obama victory really was. Three judges will be in their 80s during the next four years and Mitt Romney had proudly proclaimed that he would appoint judges in the mold of Scalia.

The election win for President Obama prevents that from happening and another hate-filled homophobe right out of the Dark Ages will not be appointed to the highest court…at least for the next four years.

    Well let us all be grateful that we have not yet ascended to the Christian standards being practiced in this arena in places like Uganda – - but keep in mind that if we keep putting radicals into positions of high authority we might get there one sweet day—

    Time to clean our legislative house in 2014 I would say!

    Is being homosexual immoral in the first place ? Is it immoral for an american homosexual to pay the ultimate price in a war that is guided by a corrupt government ? Is it immoral for an evangelistic heterosexually lead federal government to send our young to IRAQ on the false premise of weapons of mass destruction which would profit the armament industry? If America is to preach morals in this world,the american government must lead by example. Supreme court and federal governments have nothing to do in personal relations or sexual orientation.

    I am so fed up with this shortsightedness which demeans the american culture irreparably

    Dear Justice Scalia, what lawyer equates homosexuality to murder or bestiality? You would be laughed out of a courtroom with that argument. The first and most important argument would be the obvious fact that homosexual unions are between two consenting adult humans. Therefore there is no similarity between the three. The justices of the Supreme Court should be able to set aside their personal feelings of ” morality” in all matters and stick to the law and to the best interests of the country and it’s citizens, or recuse themselves. Your remarks would be embarrassing to a first year law student,

    If justice Scalia were to be hospitalized in California with a cancerous condition that involved using experimental drugs there is a chance that he would require the help of my homosexual son who is in charge of the protocol of such drugs in a large health providing organization. My son is not the only gay man that engages in such work. The health care field employs many of these murderous beasts because it seems that despite their reputations they are some of the most compassionate, loving, and caring people on the planet. This is not just in California , it’s everywhere. I met many gays who worked in Vanderbilt Hospital here in Nashville when my son was still employed there. Get rid of all the gays and Filipinos in our nations hospitals and the system would collapse. Dear Justice Scalia, why don’t you take your opinions back to the stone age? Wait a minute, they probably weren’t valid even then!

    Great illustration Mario, I can almost hear the oinks and snorts!

    dinamic aptly takes apart Scalia’s “reasoning.” Pretty sad that Scalia, being on the Supreme Court, and thus allegedly having one of the finest legal minds in the country, can’t distinguish between homosexuality and murder. But hey, that’s Republicans for ya!

  6. E.A. Blair says:

    Perhaps we can sincerely hope that something will happen between now and the day this case is decided that will force Scalia to retire from the court. Preferably, it would be something extremely scandalous and embarrassing, and, given the things Scalia has said in the past, something having to do with sex.

    That graphic is just one of the most perfect things I’ve ever seen Mario!

  8. I hope we can replace three on the court in the next 4 years with very young men / women who will be there for decades to come!

    Justice Scalia lets his own prejudice and personal morals get in the way of his job, and that is to interpret the Constitution. Conservatives are always pointing fingers at judges who rule in favor of liberals, that they are “activist” judges, when the truth is, there are conservative judges and justices who rule by their own set of principles, not the Constitution.

    I also take offense at those who say that allowing gays to marry would lead to a slippery slope to the point of allowing bestiality. There is a great difference between being attracted to someone of your own sex to being attracted to animals. I just don’t see that happening.

    One thing Scalia should realize; he’s a dinosaur and his kind will eventually all die off and those who replace them will be more enlightened than his generation could ever be.

    Seems like every passing day Republicans do or say something that is totally out of touch with reality and proves them to actually be the “stupid Party’ that Bobby Jindal spoke of.

    GOP will fight any of President Obama’s nominees to the Supreme Court, just like they’re doing to the highly qualified Susan Rice – Dems must stay strong.
