Barney Frank labels Justice Scalia a "homophobe"

Frank made the comment in the course of explaining to news outlet 365Gay why he thought a challenge to the federal "Defense of Marriage Act" should not come before the current Supreme Court:

At some point, [the Defense of Marriage Act] is going to have to go to the United States Supreme Court.... I wouldn't want it to go to the United States Supreme Court now because that homophobe Antonin Scalia has got too many votes on this current court.

Video of the interview, which also ranged over other gay political topics, is available from the 365Gay website.
