For those of you who have not seen nor heard the latest Neanderthal statements from America's most embarrassing sitting Supreme Court Justice (or, considering Clarence Thomas, possibly co-Neanderthal), have a listen and a read.
And for those with unstavle video players, here it in in all its transcribed glory.....
At a iscussion forum at Princeton University, a law student - Duncan Hosie - asked about Scalia's past statements about gay rights.....
"It's a form of argument that I thought you would have known, which is called the 'reduction to the absurd,'" Scalia said, according to the Associated Press. "If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder? Can we have it against other things?"
My questions are these:
1. Why has not Scalia recused himself voluntarily from sitting in on ANY decisions regarding either Proposition 8 or DOMA?
2. Can a fellow sitting justice publicly call for him to recuse himself voluntarily?
3. Can a 3rd party not directly involved in the judicial process call for a recusal?
It is not as if Scalia has not done the honorable and honest thing before on occasion: From Wikipedia"
The same year, however, Scalia recused himself in Elk Grove Unified School District v. Newdow, a First Amendment case challenging inclusion of the words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance, after giving a public speech in which Scalia stated his view that Newdow's claims were meritless.IN any event, how in the name of all that is honest and moral can this man sit on ANY legal panel that is deciding issues of gay rights and legal recognitions - and how can any fellow sitting justice not call him out on his conflict of interest in this case?
