In his 2003 dissent in Lawrence v. Texas, Scalia warned darkly that the Court majority “has largely signed on to the so-called homosexual agenda” even though “many Americans do not want persons who openly engage in homosexual conduct as partners in their business, as scoutmasters for their children, as teachers in their children’s schools, or as boarders in their homes.”
You have to wonder, where do these people get their ideas? Neatly parcelling up, wrapping and tying the knot around bundles of … well, of their own fears, really, isn’t it? Fear of the unknown, their own longings projected onto others and feared there, let me count the ways.
No matter, though, it stinks—really stinks in a Supreme Court Justice. This isn’t right wing or left wing, it’s stupidity and an undeveloped personality. A healthy adult mind doesn’t process life this way.
And who the hell has “boarders” any more.
