Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia: Gays Are A Made Up Minority

Antoni Scalia Scoyus asshole

Speaking yesterday at the Federalist Society in Bozeman, Montana – Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia called gays an “invented minority” when he went off on another one of his long winded ramblings and referenced recent rulings on same-sex marriage, the AP reports:

“It’s not up to the courts to invent new minorities that get special protections,” Scalia told a packed hotel ballroom in southwestern Montana.The Supreme Court earlier this year cleared the way for same-sex marriages to resume in California and struck down part of a federal law that prevents legally married gay couples from receiving benefits. Scalia voted against the majority of justices.Changes to the Constitution were made to protect minorities and to give women the right to vote, but that’s not how the court operates today, he said. Rather, a majority of five judges decide issues that should be in the hands of Congress or made through a change to the Constitution.

Scalia, also added that the the court’s justices are no better suited to decide what rights ought to exist than is “Joe Sixpack.” “These aren’t questions for lawyers.  These are the kind of questions that society debates and decides.

Scalia would do well to remember that 100 years ago “Joe Sixpack” would’ve classified Scalia as a WOP and discriminated against him in housing, jobs, etc.  But, like Clarence Thomas and so many other conservatives, now that he’s got his, he wants to make sure no one else gets theirs.

  1. How is it possible that this man is considered to be able judge over topics that relate to homosexuality and homosexuals?

    In my opinion this man is not able to enforce and or endorse the law, or interpret the law!

    He follows his own personal opinion, and fails every objectivity needed to be Federal Supreme Court Judge!

    In my opinion he fails to have the ability to be even the lowest most junior deputy sheriff’s office of the smallest village in the country!

    He is a disgrace to the High Office of Supreme Court Judge, and should, in my opinion, be prosecuted for racism, bigotry and most of all traitor of the Constitution that says that Very American is Equal under the Law, a principle that he blows away!
