Rep. Frank Calls Justice Scalia a 'Homophobe'
"Masscahusetts (sic) Rep. Barney Frank called Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia a "homophobe" in an interview released Monday on a gay online news site, and said he hoped a challenge to a federal law widely disliked in the gay community will not be heard before the high court until new justices are seated on the bench.
Frank, who is gay, made the remark in responding to a question about legal challenges to the Defense of Marriage Act. The 1996 law says the federal government and states have no obligation to recognize same-sex marriages even if other states allow them.
"At some point, [the Defense of Marriage Act] is going to have to go to the United States Supreme Court," the congressman, a Democrat, said. "I wouldn't want it to go to the United States Supreme Court now because that homophobe Antonin Scalia has got too many votes on this current court."
Yep. Disagree with someone and right away you're some sort of "phobe". Sorta like not liking sushi and being referred to as a fishaphobe.
And heaven forbid you think homosexuality is disgusting and depraved and filthy, can't have that now because personal opinions are only allowed when they're politically correct.
But since there's few things more repugnant than a flabbergasted old queer, here's hoping Scalia tones it down some.
