Justice Scalia, Again
CBS News is reporting on a recent address Justice Scalia gave to the American Enterprise Institute. Here's a highlight:
"The death penalty? Give me a break. It's easy. Abortion? Absolutely easy. Nobody ever thought the Constitution prevented restrictions on abortion. Homosexual sodomy? Come on. For 200 years, it was criminal in every state."
I guess we know how he intends to rule in the Proposition 8 case or the Defense of Marriage Act cases when they reach the Court. It's high contrast to a Court nominee deflecting a senator's question by saying that the issue may come before the Court. [MG]
