The Aspen Times reported Sunday that Scalia drew upon the Holocaust as an example of how judicial activism can lead to problems. According to the Utah Bar Association's website, Scalia was slated to be the keynote speaker for the 2013 Summer Convention event, which was held from July 17-20 in Snowmass, Colo.Well, there is one person...totally fair comparison to this guy. But please do go on Tony:
"We have become addicted to abstract moralizing," Scalia said last month. "I am questioning the sanity of having value-laden judgments made by judges."Yeah, Scalia would never do any of that "value-laden judgment" thing.
The Texas statute [criminalizing sodomy] undeniably seeks to further the belief of its citizens that certain forms of sexual behavior are "immoral and unacceptable," Bowers, supra, at 196-the same interest furthered by criminal laws against fornication, bigamy, adultery, adult incest, bestiality, and obscenity.Yes, gay sex = incest, obscenity and/or bestiality, no value judgments there.
