|And he's said some stupid shit, so in many ways,|
well done Justice Scalia, you've outdone yourself.
|That thing. That's a petard. |
Mystery: solved. Thanks internet!
|You know, together in common |
recognition of how completely
wrong these people were.
See? Marriage is about individual liberty and is a magical, sacred union by which two people publicly declare their decision to screw while filing their taxes jointly. Freedom and responsibility? Conservatives love those, so why haven't they been onboard with marriage equality from day one?
|I mean, all that's missing here is two dudes |
making out while setting off illegal fireworks.
|We are thinking about the children.|
How's that for comeuppance?
Again, marriage is super-important not only as a question of choice but also as a fundamentally important social structure that provides stable, healthy environments for children. Who doesn't want more of those?
|Well, I suppose Fagin wouldn't but then he's the ring-leader|
of a band of child thieves, so maybe he's not the best example.
|Well, except for diving retribution...|
|Above: Pretty much.|
"Until the Court put a stop to it, public debate over same-sex marriage displayed American democracy at its best..."
crying in his cheerios
Yup, that's right. We, as in America, have been denied the opportunity to listen to more homophobic rabid-foam crazy about how gay people cause hurricanes. I appreciate that for Scalia, this whole thing has been a lively national debate, but for millions of people it was about whether or not gays and lesbians were equal citizens under the law, so in many ways he can shut the fuck up.
