Comedian Patton Oswalt’s tweet is a compliment, in a way: despite his being an “evil hop-frog,” Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia doesn’t seem convinced that the sole purpose of marriage is procreation. Well, that’s not quite the entire argument, but why fret over semantics?

Even the Los Angeles Times seemed disappointed that the “irascible” and “famously acid-tongued” Scalia was “surprisingly tame” during arguments over Proposition 8 and DOMA. Maybe he’s not such an evil hop-frog after all? Now that that’s settled, Oswalt can get back to making gay jokes about Marcus Bachmann and the rest of Twitter can continue tweeting Scalia death wishes.
