  •  This is like Scalia's saying in the recent Prop 8 (3+ / 0-)

    or DOMA oral arguments -- can't remember which -- that there is no clear implication from social research about the effects of gay parenting even though there was an American Sociological Association friend-of-the-court brief saying that there was no evidence at all that kids with gay parents have any more problems than kids with straight parents.  

            These assholes just make up out of whole cloth versions of reality -- and of history -- that fit their ideological assumptions but are often directly at odds with the facts.  Or maybe Scalia was just referring to the fact that kids of gay parents are likely to end up as much less bigoted than he would think optimal for the purposes of his reactionary cronies.
