SCALIA SAYS MARRIAGE VIEWS NOT AFFECTED BY HIS LIFELONG FEAR AND DISGUST OF HOMOSEXUALS
(The Borowitz Report)—As the Supreme Court prepared to hear two cases involving same-sex marriage this week, Justice Antonin Scalia said that he would not allow his votes to be influenced “in any way” by his lifelong fear of gays.
“As Justices of the Supreme Court, we have a sacred duty to check our personal feelings at the door,” he told the Fox News Channel. “In my case, that means putting aside my longstanding and profound fear of homosexuals.”
Justice Scalia added that he was committed “to safeguarding the rights of all Americans—even those I personally find terrifying.”
“I take my role as an impartial arbiter very seriously,” he said. “So when I hear a case, I put all feelings of abhorrence, disgust, and revulsion completely out of my mind.”
[quote]“I’m going to apply the same robust sense of fairness that I’ve brought to cases involving blacks and women.”
Is he saying that blacks and women also disgust him?
Borowitz is a pretty funny writer.
I liken him to a latter-day Dave Barry.
R1, yes, but in this case the satire is pretty stealth.
[quote]Brandon is straight. He beat up gay men in high school, and is back for more.
Hey, that's not cool.
OP, I'm just a dude. No one special. I tend to over share about personal stuff, and that gets me in trouble. And I have a bad habit of attention seeking, but I do keep it to personal threads.
And I also post in the wrong threads.
It may be satire, but I doubt that it's too far off the mark.
Brandon - posting a cock pic excuses all past transgressions.

especially corporations cause they are people too.
He is vile.
I think Brandon is sweet. I like him
[quote]I put all feelings of abhorrence, disgust, and revulsion completely out of my mind.
He's doing something I can't do. Whenever I see or hear the name Scalia, I'm overwhelmed with feelings of abhorrence, disgust, and revulsion toward the supreme jackass.
R11 - he is, by default, a better person than you.
I know this is satire, but Scalia has always seemed to be angling for a post-justice career. Which is of course ironic considering he has the chair for life if he wants it.
So maybe his reward is not in the future. But if it's in the present, what could it be?
[quote] my longstanding and profound fear of homosexuals.”
I knew this couldn't be true because Scalia spends so much time in Catholic churches.
1) fear of homosexuals is, by definition, homophobia
2) Does anyone think a justice could get away with asserting that his vote on, for example, an affirmative action case, would not be affected by his lifelong racism?
3) The answer to that being "fuck no!" Why on earth should a justice's vote on a gay rights issue be seen as having any legitimacy at all when he has announced that he is homophobic?
r17 = one big OH, DEAR.
r11 and r12 are in a contest to see who's dumber.
And r17 wins
Can this asshole please have a stroke or massive sudden heart-attack or something? He's not the worst scum on the planet, but he's got to rank way up there...
How could someone have a fear of homosexuals.?
Do they think a gay man will come running out of a bush and shove a dildo up their ass.
He's a big opera queen just like Ruthie Bader Ginsburg. They sometimes even go to the Washington Opera together, and they socialize together too.
Do you think they have hot monkey sex R23?
He's a terrible old cunt - I hope he dies soon
Hope he dies of a horrible cancer.
If he does Rosie, it's our tax dollars taking care of him. Just like we paid for asshole war criminal Cheney's heart.
[24}: I don't think Ruth can get it up anymore. Old age and pancreatic cancer, you know.
I think that many of have long assumed Scalia's bigotry and ignorance were willful, and his Neanderthal point of view was simply a manifestation of good old American selfishness. But this interview thinks that the man is just plain stupid. Gump-like stupid. That somehow gives me a better opinion of him. His backwards rulings are simply because he's an idiot, not because he's evil.
