Antonin Scalia, possibly the most extreme conservative associate U.S. Supreme Court justice, says, for him, it is “easy” to outlaw same-sex marriage — which he calls “homosexual sodomy.” Scalia, a Reagan appointee who hails from Trenton, New Jersey, also finds it “easy” to rule on the death penalty and abortion. The remarks are considered unprecedented as they relate to cases the Supreme Court is likely to rule on soon, possibly even next year.
“The death penalty? Give me a break. It’s easy. Abortion? Absolutely easy. Nobody ever thought the Constitution prevented restrictions on abortion. Homosexual sodomy? Come on. For 200 years, it was criminal in every state.”
