Scalia Goes After the Loose Constructionists

Of course, that’s not how ABCNews interpreted the speech, entitling their article “Scalia Ridicules Court’s Gay Sex Ruling.” If I can find a transcript of the speech I’ll post a link, but this seems like a great speech:

“Most of today’s experts on the Constitution think the document written in Philadelphia in 1787 was simply an early attempt at the construction of what is called a liberal political order,” Scalia told a gathering of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute.

“All that the person interpreting or applying that document has to do is to read up on the latest academic understanding of liberal political theory and interpolate these constitutional understandings into the constitutional text.”
