Christine Quinn Calls for Justice Scalia to Apologize

"Don't compare me to a murderer because I'm a lesbian," said the New York City Council Speaker. "Don't do it. It's wrong."

New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn wants Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia to apologize for remarks he made comparing anti-sodomy bans to laws against bestiality and murder.

"The justice should apologize," Quinn told Chris Matthews in an appearance on Hardball on MSNBC, reports Azi Paybarah at Capital New York. "It's offensive. Sexual orientation is who we are as people. It's how we're created," she said.

Scalia made the comments Monday in an appearance at Princeton University. A gay freshman asked the conservative justice about his stance, exemplified in his dissent in the 2003 Lawrence v. Texas case that struck down anti-sodomy laws ...

“It’s a form of argument that I thought you would have known, which is called the ‘reduction to the absurd’…If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder?” <Scalia> asked. “Can we have it against other things?” ...

5. Fat Tony don't apologize for nothin'

He's a self-righteous smug monster who feels it's his responsibility to spread HIS version of morality across occupants of this country. He's an idiot who should be removed from SCOTUS - he doesn't deserve the power he has.

6. Good that she spoke up. She's likely to be next NYC mayor.

( I'll probably vote against her, but that's another story.)

If so, Scalia, et al will find it hard to avoid her if they come to NYC for "official" functions.


Scalia, like Archie Bunker ( I hear they were neighbors in Queens in the 70's) , seems unembarrasssable but others among the supremes might think twice about signing on an LGBT decision written by Crazy Guggenheim.

These people don't like "awkward".

8. Fat Tony Needs to Apologise--

profusely, then retire. His time (assuming he ever had one) has come and GONE. He is a relic of a less enlightened time and needs to simply retire and let a more progressive Justice take his place.
