I'm as godless as you can get but I do not buy that. Scalia is brutally intelligent and terribly witty. He has obviously read and pondered on innumerable works.
Again, this is what's wrong with America. I'm 100% for same sex marriage but FUCKING LOATHE mindless parrots that hold this position. I'll take a million Scalias over one Facebook idiot with an "=" as their profile picture.
Btw, it was you that said dissent = brain damage. Go read what you wrote.
You think it's a problem I do not. Scalia may be intelligent but he is also terribly flawed and contradicts himself often. These types of opinions tend to read cold and academic when they are really backed by good old fashioned bigotry. Read Harlan's dissent in Plessy for a taste of how a reasonable man can see the future.
At the end of the day it's a victory for civil rights but Earl Warren would have wanted and probably gotten more.
