Old Sod

Politicians and judges who want to tell us what sexual positions are and are not legal should certainly be asked about their own behavior. Asking the question about such behavior is not an invasion of privacy, locking someone up for that behavior is.

April 14, 2005 -- WHEN U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia (above) spoke Tuesday night at NYU's Vanderbilt Hall, "The room was packed with some 300 students and there were many protesters outside because of Scalia's vitriolic dissent last year in the case that overturned the Texas law against gay sex," our source reports. "One gay student asked whether government had any business enacting and enforcing laws against consensual sodomy. Following Scalia's answer, the student asked a follow-up: 'Do you sodomize your wife?' The audience was shocked, especially since Mrs. Scalia [Maureen] was in attendance. The justice replied that the question was unworthy of an answer."

If Scalia had any genuine convictions his answer would have been "of course not."
