Because of Scalia, 7th Circuit says anti-gay workplace discrimimation violates Federal law

This is beautiful. Deceased former Supreme Court Justice and Paul Sorvino's porn parody body double, Antonin Scalia, once made an argument to extend federal civil rights protections in a case that likely was not intended to be covered by the authors of Title VII. In part because of that argument, the 7th Circuit extended workplace protections to gay and lesbian employees in a case of a lesbian experiencing discrimination at accounting firm Price Waterhouse. Scalia--bigot to the end of his days--had his words used to extend civil rights to gays and lesbians. *cackles* The story of course isnt over: the issue must ultimately be decided by the Supeme Court.
