Sicko? Suggest you recalibrate...

I understand your love of Scalia now. How would Scalia decide this issue?

Hey, you’re the one who jumped to the conclusion about it meaning ‘boy fan’...

As for Scalia’s opinion on gay issues, I don’t really know. I do know his opinion on the Constitution and the equal protection and due process clauses in relation to gay rights (such as his dissents in Romer and Lawrence), but I have no idea how he thinks as a private individual and voter on gay issues. One thing I like about him is that he’s able to separate his personal views from his judging. It’s what a judge should be able to do. He recognizes that legislatures and courts have different functions. I like Justice Thomas for that reason, too. (And, in fact, Justice Thomas has indicated that he finds criminalizing homosexuality to be a silly thing for a legislature to do.)

BTW, I fully support the right of private groups to exclude whoever they want for ANY reason no matter how much I may disagree, because frankly, who private individuals choose to associate with is none of my business. If the Boy Scouts don’t want gays, that’s their right, IMO. If a women’s gardening club wants to exclude men, that’s just fine. I’m rather libertarian in that sense.

Don’t even go there, you sicko.

See. His moderate tone has fled. He realizes that he's not going to obtain any converts here, so he resorts to name calling.

How would anyone know that Scalia is his 'hero' thence the 'Nino' fan.

Nino could have meant 'little' something else.
