Compare this to AJ Ginsburg's alarm over Congressional oversight of the Federal Judiciary.

European Court of Human Rights which upheld the privacy of a homosexual man who engaged in group sex. Scalia said the ruling prohibited nations in the European Union from grappling independently with the question of whether homosexuality is morally acceptable.

"Surely the binding answer to that question should not be decided by seven unelected judges," Scalia said, drawing applause from the crowd.

Over the last 50 years, the United States has put too much emphasis on letting bureaucratic experts make important policy decisions, Scalia said. Such decisions, he said, ultimately come down to a moral judgment.

Can someone point out the part of the Constitution that gives elected officials, bureaucratic experts, or Judges the authority to make "Moral Judgments"?

He is right. Also when the American people really stop looking at the courts and the government to solve our problems; we will be able to really move forward and be much better for it. We will have to do it because the courts and the government won't.

Well, obviously the SC judges that made the, "MORAL" decision of Roe vs. Wade for the entire country, felt they were far superior to everyone. After all, shouldn't 7 people be able to decide what over 2 billion people do. And by the way, we have 9 now. Let's get rid of 2. I vote to drop Ginsburg and Souter...

Yeah, what he said. Congress shares in this blame big time. Federal courts spend their time deciding local issues every day, because Congress passed so many national laws that override state proceedings.

Justice Scalia says Supreme Court should take back seat to voters

This from a justice who found new and novel interpretations of the Necessary and Proper Clause to overrule the wishes of the voters of the State of California when it came to medical marijuana - and thereby missed a chance to take a bite out of Wickard.

Scalia talks the talk when it comes to originalism, but at times he fails to walk the walk.
