The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on gay marriage was announced. Five justices ruled in favor. Justice Kennedy wrote the majority opinion. He was eloquent. I guess he believes in the concept of love. However, the four dissenters felt the need to explain why they hate gay couples who want to have a legal marriage.
Uncle Tom aka Clarence Thomas show the clear effects of hate rotting the brain.
“Slaves did not lose their dignity (any more than they lost their humanity) because the government allowed them to be enslaved,” Thomas said. “Those held in internment camps did not lose their dignity because the government confined them. And those denied governmental benefits certainly do not lose their dignity because the government denies them those benefits. The government cannot bestow dignity, and it cannot take it away.”
Justice Scalia rendered yet another rambling dissertation which demonstrates the hate rotting out his brains. Yesterday his disjointed and illogical rambling were directed against the majority opinion which upheld Obama care/state sponsored health insurance. Three justices opposed the majority decision. Scalia, Alito, and of course Uncle Tom Clarence. More examples of brains fried with hate. Uncle Tom Clarence is showing the long term effects of cognitive dissonance.
Justice Scalia doesn’t understand science, but rather believe in the tricky Devil. Scalia also believes the Christian Bible creation mythology, which tells him the earth is only a few thousand years old. Of course the Bible is full of stories involving slavery and rape and multiple wives (for example the various Kings of Israel and other males in the old testament). There are numerous examples of ethnocentric prejudices peppered throughout the old testament. Most of the Bible quoting moralists haven’t bothered to read the whole Bible.
While I was in college I re-read the Bible in French. Reading the nasty stuff in French was interesting. After college I bought a copy of the reprinted Woman’s Bible by Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
Scalia’s legal opinions are heavily influenced by his belief in Biblical mythology. Amazing how a book filled with mythology can be used in place of logic and science. Or Scalia is proof that time travel has happened. How else could a 15th century dude, like Scalia, be making a fool of himself while pontificating from the Supreme Court?
