Daily Currant: Scalia Calls Homosexuality ‘Unamerican’

Another story from The Daily Currant that could easily be true;

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is under fire today for controversial statements regarding LGBT rights.

In a speech to the conservative Federalist Society, the aging judicial firebrand claimed that homosexuality was 'unnatural' and 'unamerican' and suggested states should have the right to ban it under the 10th amendment.

The explosive remarks come just days after the high court agreed to hear two cases that might finally decide the question of whether gays in the United States have the constitutional right to marry. If Scalia's speech is any indication, however, marriage equality won't be getting his vote when the case is decided:

"Certain countries have long histories of homosexuality. France, for example, has been a haven for queers since Charlemagne. And Australia was pretty much a bath house from day one - the English didn't send enough women for the convicts."


Again, I know, this is another Onion like parody story...

3. Hurry up and die, Scalia!

You're occupying a seat that ought to be held by a real human being.

4. Well, he should tell that to Walt Whitman and a slew of other American artist, scientists and judges

All of whom have contributed more to America than he.

5. Does he realize that the only thing un-American about its homosexuality has been

the way society here has labelled and treated homosexuals, forcing them to hide in closets of unthinkable torment and anguish?

6. Scalia was born in the wrong decade/century.

What a disgusting man.

7. It is truly remarkable that Tony "the Pig" Scalia

sounds more and more like Mussolini or Torquemada every time he opens his fat phiz.

8. Well

I guess it's good we weren't counting on his vote when the court hears the same-sex marriage cases that are coming up.

9. Please, label these with much larger SARCASM tags ...

I get so tired of people getting all righteous without knowing they're reading something that's entirely non-serious.
