Scalia's wisdom

Justice Antonin Scalia had a word or two to say about the concept of the Supreme Court getting involved in moral issues such as , and the .

"I am questioning the propriety -- indeed, the sanity -- of having a value-laden decision such as this made for the entire society ... by unelected judges.
