Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia recently argued that the cross is something of a universal symbol, not just reserved for Christians. And I think he has a point. After all, I've heard of large crosses being displayed in the front yards of people of many faiths. They're even lit on fire to insure everyone notices.

Rep. Barney Frank — Congress' most prominent gay member — has called U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia a "homophobe."
Yes, that has now happened…
Frank was responding to whether cases involving gay marriage should be heard in the high court at this time.
"I wouldn't want it to go to the United States Supreme Court now because that homophobe Antonin Scalia has too many votes on this current court," Frank said in an interview with 365gay.com.
This is just ridiculous. To have one member of our Congress viciously attacking the good name of a member of the Supreme Court of the United States?! It's digusting! It's juvenile! It's beneath the honor of a statesman!
That is, I mean, unless Justice Scalia is a homophobe. Is he?
The Supreme Court Justice dissented from the court in 2003 in Lawrence vs. Texas, a case that struck down sodomy laws. Scalia said the decision was "a massive disruption of the current social order."
Oh. Well, then, never mind.
Please carry on.

You want semantics? You got semantics. We'll even throw in a little Grand Theft Auto IV reference for all you gamers out there awake enough to pry your mitts off of the controller:
Does any of torture talk have any blowback on the Republican Party, or is John McCain going to quash all that nonsense should he make it to the White House?
