Antonin Scalia Defends Anti-Gay Statements

This man had some words in his event the other day. During an event at Princeton University, Scalia was questioned on why he thinks laws banning sodomy are the same as barring bestiality and murder.

This is how it went down:
Some in the audience who had come to hear Scalia speak about his book applauded but more of those who attended the lecture clapped at freshman Duncan Hosie's question.
"It's a form of argument that I thought you would have known, which is called the `reduction to the absurd,'" Scalia told Hosie of San Francisco during the question-and-answer period. 
"If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder? Can we have it against other things?" 
Scalia said he is not equating sodomy with murder but drawing a parallel between the bans on both. 
Then he deadpanned: "I'm surprised you aren't persuaded."
Hosie said afterward that he was not persuaded by Scalia's answer. He said he believes Scalia's writings tend to "dehumanize" gays.

As Scalia often does in public speaking, he cracked wise, taking aim mostly at those who view the Constitution as a "living document" that changes with the times.
"It isn't a living document," Scalia said. "It's dead, dead, dead, dead."
Lord, this man.
