Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

“This court has no business imposing upon all Americans the resolution favored by the elite class from which the Members of this institution are selected, pronouncing that ‘animosity’ toward homosexuality … is evil. I vigorously dissent.”

Later, in his dissent in Lawrence v. Texas (2003), in which the court cited international opinion in overturning the Texas sodomy law, Justice Scalia wrote:

“Today’s opinion is the product of a Court, which is the product of a law-profession culture, that has largely signed on to the so-called homosexual agenda, by which I mean the agenda promoted by some homosexual activists directed at eliminating the moral opprobrium that has traditionally attached to homosexual conduct.”

Well, to accomplish that, they’re going to have to burn all the Bibles, suspend the workings of biology and scrub the history books clean of 5,000 years of the universal understanding that sex belongs between men and women in marriage. And they’re going to have to wipe out the First Amendment while they’re at it.

That’s no small feat, even for Masters of the Universe like Judge Reinhardt, Mr. Obama and Mr. Gates.
