Alito Supported Gay Rights in '71

Recently uncovered documents from Alito's college days reveal that he supported some rights for gay people. In a paper he wrote, Alito declared that sexual acts between consenting adults should never be illegal. Alito also stated that homosexuals should not be discriminated against in hiring.

This is all very interesting news, but this was also written in 1971. In 1971 I was not even born yet, so I know first-hand how much someone can change over that much time. For example. I now exist.

Don't you just love how documents like this suddenly become "uncovered"? With all their glee, I feel like the religious right knows more than this.
