Speaking last Friday at the University of Richmond, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who was nominated to the Court by Ronald Regan (May he be rotting in hell) denounced the concept of a “living Constitution” and said the 14th Amendment was not written with the intent of granting equal protection to ALL Americans. Just the straight heterosexual males.
“The due process clause has been distorted so it’s no longer a guarantee of process but a guarantee of liberty,” Scalia expounded. “But some of the liberties the Supreme Court has found to be protected by that word – liberty – nobody thought constituted a liberty when the 14th Amendment was adopted. Homosexual sodomy? It was criminal in all the states. Abortion? It was criminal in all the states.” “The way to change the Constitution is through amendments approved by the people, not by judges altering the meaning of its words,” he added.
This isn’t the first time that Scalia has made comments lie this. Speaking at a San Francisco law school he once said that the Constitution offers no protection whatsoever to homosexuals or females.
Perhaps Scalia should be booted from The Supreme Court because he obviously can’t read. The 14th Amendment states: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person “
Scalia is 74 years old the longest-serving Supreme Court Justice, and is thought to be in relatively good health (DAMMIT!) and most court watchers expect him to remain on the bench for as long another decade.
Scalia Voodoo Dolls anyone?
