If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder? -- Anthony Scalia


more scalia-style reductio ad absurdum:

a homophobe can have moral feelings against homosexuality & no moral feelings against murder.
a (closeted) homosexual may have moral feelings against homosexuality and moral feelings against murder.
a murderer can have moral feelings against murder and no moral feelings against homosexuality.
a murderer can have moral feelings against homosexuality and no moral feelings against murder.
a high magistrate (& closeted homosexual) can have moral feelings against homosexuality and moral feelings against murder.  

so?
