US Representative Barney Frank, an openly gay lawmaker, has called Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia a "homophobe," confirming a common response toward those who do not support homosexual marriage or do not affirm their lifestyle.
Apparently Frank does not realize Scalia's actual position on moral issues.
Rep. Barney Frank called Scalia a homophobe in an interview with a gay news website. The Seattle PI is carrying the Associated Press story.
In discussing gay "marriage" and his expectations that the Supreme Court would some day be called upon to decide whether marriage exclusively between one man and one woman, therefore denying homosexual "marriage," is Constitutional said, "I wouldn't want it to go to the United States Supreme Court now because that homophobe Antonin Scalia has too many votes on this current court."
The AP reports that Scalia, who is known to be very conservative, actually dissented from the Court's ruling in 2003 that struck down state laws banning consensual sodomy.
Scalia feels that these kinds of moral issues should not be in the hands of judges, rather in the hands of the people.
It doesn't seem to matter to Frank. Scalia's a homophobe anyway because he probably doesn't support homosexual marriage and affirm the homosexual lifestyle.
This is a common response toward anyone who supports traditional marriage. They are called bigots, hateful and discriminatory because they do not support homosexual "marriage" and do not affirm the homosexual lifestyle.
It is sad, but true. Words such as tolerance have been turned around and are used as battering rams against those who hold a different view.
I am certain that for those who hold biblical worldviews on morality, the sanctity of life, marriage and family, the near future is going to be both trying and challenging.
May God help us.
