(DAILYMAIL) — A gay college student questioned conservative Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia about a previous ruling where he wrote in favor of anti-sodomy laws.

In that landmark 2003 case, which ended up overturning anti-sodomy laws in Texas and 13 other states, Scalia voted against the majority, writing that moral objections to sodomy should be considered as valid as moral objections to bestiality and murder.

In Monday’s lecture at Princeton University, the 78-year-old judge Said his method of argument was ‘effective’.

The comments now have many liberal campaigners worried as the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear two cases on same-sex marriage in the coming year, and his comments show that it is reasonable to expect a dissent from Scalia.
