Remarks that make one question the sanity of Antonin Scalia

"Speaking at Princeton University, Scalia was asked by a gay student why he equates laws banning sodomy with those barring bestiality and murder. ...
"'If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder? Can we have it against other things?'"
I could not possibly respond better than Reddit user Oscar_Wilde_Ride:
"There is a clear moral difference. Murder infringes on the domain of autonomy of another; homosexuality does not. In fact, legislating against homosexuality infringes on that other person's domain of autonomy making it more akin to murder than the act of homosexuality."
