Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Monday said that the logic behind Supreme Court rulings protecting gay rights could also apply to child molesters.

During a speech at Georgetown University, Scalia claimed that such decisions were not rooted in the U.S. Constitution.

Scalia argued that the logic behind those decision could also apply to any “unloved” minority, including child molesters.

“What minorities deserve protection?” Scalia rhetorically asked. “What? It's up to me to identify deserving minorities?”

“What about pederasts? What about child abusers?”

“This is a deserving minority,” he said with a sarcastic tone. “Nobody loves them.”

Instead, Scalia said, such decisions should be left to the democratic process. Only political and religious minorities are protected by the First Amendment, he claimed.

“I write the dissents for you guys,” he joked. “I write my dissents and try to make them not only clear but interesting and even fun.”
