One Wondrous Sentence: Justice Antonin Scalia and sodomy

December 24, 2012

This one wondrous sentence reflects the opinions — some might say antediluvian opinions — of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on homosexuality and the supposed ills associated with it.

A practiced cultural warrior himself, Scalia wrote that laws “called into question” by the court striking down the sodomy ban were “laws against bigamy, same-sex marriage, adult incest, prostitution, masturbation, adultery, fornication, bestiality, and obscenity.”
