Conservative activist (who happens to also be a judge) Antonin Scalia once again attacks LGBT rights

by Jeremy Hooper

Speaking to an event put together by the uber conservative Federal Society, uber conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia implied that his court has been "inventing new minorities":

“It's not up to the courts to invent new minorities that get special protections,” Scalia said, in an apparent reference to the court's recent decisions on gay marriage and federal benefits for same-sex couples.

Fortunately for Justice Scalia, the court neither invented a minority nor gave protections that are anything resembling "special." This will remain true no matter how many conservative-crafted talking points he invents to justify his role in this particular civil rights conversation.
