U.S. Representative Barney Frank has called Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia a "homophobe," reports the American Bar Association Journal's Law News Now. Speaking to a reporter at, Frank acknowledged that eventually challenges to DOMA, The Defense of Marriage Act, would be heard by the Supreme Court.

"I wouldn't want it to go to the United States Supreme Court now," Frank told the site, "because that homophobe Antonin Scalia has got too many votes on this current court."

Scalia, a staunch Catholic, is a consistent vote on the court on lesbian and gay issues.
