As usual there were an embarrassing number of candidates that could have earned the dishonorable BWA. The recent speech delivered to Catholic Duquesne University School of Law by the long-standing homophobic bigot Justice Scalia of the Fecal Five earns him this week’s BWA.
Scalia’s speech served to promote a long-standing tradition of homophobic bigotry that he feels should be protected in religious schools:
Our educational establishment these days, while so tolerant of and even insistent upon diversity in all other aspects of life seems bent on eliminating diversity of moral judgment — particularly moral judgment based on religious views… I hope this place will not yield — as some Catholic institutions have — to this politically correct insistence upon suppression of moral judgment, to this distorted view of what diversity in America means.
“Distorted view of what diversity in America means,” wow! Talk about an arrogant, rich, white, heterosexual (?) man speaking from great privilege; how on earth did this man get to be a Supreme Court Justice? Aside from not understanding the definition of diversity, he clearly has no idea of what the definition of Judge is. Memo to Justice Ginsberg, can you please let Scalia read your copy of the job description for a Supreme Court Justice? Click here to see the full article. I continue to be amazed at how obsessed Scalia is with gays.
I have to also give a dishonorable mention to Southwest Airlines for their forcing a lesbian couple off the aircraft and proving to all of us there is a clear double standard for heterosexuals and those of us in the LGBT community.
