Finally, some good news from the Supreme Court: Lawrence v Texas was decided in favour of overturning Texas' anti-gay sodomy law. The majority opinion is based on a right to privacy; I didn't think that argument would fly federally. "The state cannot demean their existence or control their destiny by making their private sexual conduct a crime".

Scalia's minority report shows he's still hateful:

"The court has largely signed on to the so-called homosexual agenda," Scalia wrote for the three. 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."

I don't care if he likes me so long as I have equal protection.
