The Animus of Antonin Scalia

posted on December 14, 2012

For The New Yorker, Amy Davidson writes about Antonin Scalia’s strict stance on homosexuality and gay rights. In response to a recent question on the issue, Scalia stated, “If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder?” With Scalia’s argument in mind, Davidson considers the country’s changing position on the issue: “[What] [Scalia] is missing, though, is that an increasing number of Americans have found that when legal strictures and open discrimination are stripped away they are left not with the reprehensible, but with neighbors, friends, and family members whom they love, and see loving each other.”
