I will leave it to constitutional scholars to dissect today’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges (pdf) holding that states cannot ban same-sex marriage. But in his dissent, Justice Scalia says:
This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine … robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.
Where was that concern when he voted to halt the Florida recount in 2000? Let me offer Justice Scalia the same advice he gave to people who felt that the Supreme Court overstepped its role. “Get over it.” I would even add, “Don’t let it ruin your Pride Weekend.”
