News & Notes: Hosie ’16 elaborates on challenge of Justice Scalia in Los Angeles Times op-ed
In an op-ed published in the Los Angeles Times on Sunday, Duncan Hosie '16 elaborated on his motivations for challenging Justice Antonin Scalia for rhetoric on homosexuality when Scalia gave a lecture on campus last December.
Hosie, a freshman from Belvedere, Calif., questioned Scalia's comparison between morally objecting to sodomy and morally objecting to bestiality or murder. In his op-ed, Hosie explained that he cited dissents written by Scalia in his question.
Hosie also described his personal experience growing up gay and explained that he had only come out to his parents about a month before speaking to Scalia.
"I know from personal experience that poisonous language like Scalia's can be devastatingly hurtful," Hosie wrote, saying he asked his question in hopes that the justice would reconsider his rhetoric.
