Supreme Court Strikes Down Texas Sodomy Law!
Scalia, Thomas, Rehnquist, peeved at victory for "homosexual agenda"
The Supreme Court struck down a Texas ban on gay sex Thursday, ruling that the law was an unconstitutional violation of privacy.And of course:
The justices voted 6-3 in striking down the Texas law, saying it violated due process guarantees... . The majority opinion, written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, appears to cover similar laws in 12 other states and reverses a 1986 high court ruling upholding sodomy laws. Kennedy wrote that homosexuals have "the full right to engage in private conduct without government intervention."
"The state cannot demean their existence or control their destiny by making their private sexual conduct a crime," Kennedy wrote, according to a report from The Associated Press.
Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist and Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas dissented.Yes, of course Scalia has nothing against homosexuals. He just doesn't think they should be allowed to have free speech, families, jobs, love, respect, privacy, or consensual sex. So except for the part where he'd be happier if all gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people fell of a cliff, he has nothing against homosexuals.
"The court has largely signed on to the so-called homosexual agenda," Scalia wrote for the three, according to the AP. He took the unusual step of reading his dissent from the bench.
"The court has taken sides in the culture war," Scalia said, adding that he has "nothing against homosexuals."
By the way, if you're wondering what to do with all those useless sodomy laws that are now cluttering up your house, most of my suggestions still stand.
