Seriously?

Seriously?The latest in our series of the crazy things the anti gay folks are saying and doing around the world.

I Love The Homosexuals – I Might Even Know Some

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia thinks the gay are just fine, and some of his friends might even be gay.

Queerty reports:

I have friends that I know, or very much suspect, are homosexual. Everybody does…I don’t know about my grandchildren. I know about my children. I don’t think they and I differ very much. But I’m not a hater of homosexuals at all. I still think it’s Catholic teaching that it’s wrong. Okay? But I don’t hate the people that engage in it. In my legal opinions, all I’ve said is that I don’t think the Constitution requires the people to adopt one view or the other…Americans have a right to feel that way. They have a democratic right to do that, and if it is to change, it should change democratically, and not at the ukase of a Supreme Court.

From Towleroad.com:

NY Mag: …I was wondering what kind of personal exposure you might have had to this sea change.

Scalia: I have friends that I know, or very much suspect, are homosexual. Everybody does.

NYM: Have any of them come out to you?

Scalia: No. No. Not that I know of.

Would you want to be friends with this guy?

Gays Are Making Straights Stop Having Babies

That’s the gist of the Mormon Church’s latest argument against marriage equality, as expressed by apostle Dailin H. Oaks.

Joe.My.God reports:

On the second and final day of the LDS Church’s 183rd Semiannual General Conference, apostle Dallin H. Oaks bemoaned America’s dropping birthrates, later marriages and rising incidence of cohabitation as evidence of “political and social pressures for legal and policy changes to establish behaviors contrary to God’s decrees about sexual morality and the eternal nature and purposes of marriage and child-bearing.” An LDS eternal perspective does not allow Mormons “to condone such behaviors or to find justification in the laws that permit them,” said the apostle, a former Utah Supreme Court justice. “And, unlike other organizations that can change their policies and even their doctrines, our policies are determined by the truths God has declared to be unchangeable.”

Spunds like a Pope-slam to me.

    First, how did Antonin Scalia ever make it to the SCOTUS? This man does not seem to have a clear understanding of the US Constitution. He’s right in that people have the absolute right to choose what they would like to believe; however, once you’ve made that choice you have NO RIGHT to infringe upon anyone else’s choices. You certainly have the right to try to persuade them to change their minds. But one thing you can NOT do is vote their rights away. When that does happen, as we’ve seen, it’s challenged in court and found to be unconstitutional. Our Constitution was written to protect the rights of the minority against the tyranny of the majority. That’s the only way that a Democracy will work. Otherwise the majority will always prevail and you don’t have true freedom in such a society.
