No. Scalia's argument is that the legal standard under which the sodomoy cases were disposed of is one that applies to every action of government. All laws have to be able to pass a rational relationship test. So if you adopt a particular interpretation of rational relationship that is not dependent on something specific to the case - a general theory of rational relationship - then the impacts of that precedent are felt not only on cases involving marriage (or other taboos), but also widely disparate regulations like murder.Must be time for my afternoon cup of coffee. I didn't understand a word of that.
