In Case You Missed This... (Scalia) LOL !!!

I love that this is from the other side of the pond.

Orgies are the way to ease social tensions, claims US judge
Oliver Burkeman in New York
The Guardian, Friday 1 October 2004 18.59 EDT

<snip>

He is the conservative bastion of the US supreme court, a favourite of President Bush, and a hunting partner of the vice-president. He has argued vociferously against abortion rights, and in favour of anti-sodomy laws.

But it turns out that there is another side to Justice Antonin Scalia: he thinks Americans ought to be having more orgies.

Challenged about his views on sexual morality, Justice Scalia surprised his audience at Harvard University, telling them: "I even take the position that sexual orgies eliminate social tensions and ought to be encouraged."


It seems unlikely that this is what President Bush meant when he promised to appoint more judges like Scalia to the court, should the opportunity arise. Crucially, Justice Scalia is one of the judges in favour of overturning Roe v Wade, the landmark judgment protecting abortion as a constitutional right.

One audience member also asked the judge "whether you have any gay friends, and, if not, whether you'd like to be my friend," the Harvard Crimson newspaper reported.

"I probably do have some gay friends, but I have never pressed the point," Justice Scalia responded. He offered no clue to the logic behind his claim that orgies eliminate social tensions.

15. Cheers ~



to the sound of the music of Scalia puking over the SCOTUS ACA decision, like an overfed Roman senator after a toga orgy.

12. A movie of Scalia in an orgy might be the scariest horror flick of all time

Like something from that episode of Master's Of Horror about a movie that drives the audience insane. They could call it The Shining Ass. Or how about The Sumbitch Horror? How about Hostile? The Wicked Man?

14. Here's a mental image for you: Are Rush and Scalia good pals? Do ya think they "party" together?

I kinda wonder about KKKarl Rove too.

Inquiring minds...
