Well, the theocrats had their meeting Sunday. All the big names were there: Dobson, Perkins, DeLay, Zell Miller and Phyllis Schlafly. Doesn’t that group just evoke the concept of justice?:
Prominent conservative political and religious leaders called Sunday night for Senate approval of Supreme Court nominees who will vote to end the constitutional right to abortion, against recognition of same-sex marriage and for fewer restrictions on religious expression in public places.The Supreme Court has sanctioned “the right to kill unborn children” and opened the door to legalized “homosexual sodomy,” declared Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, which co-sponsored “Justice Sunday II.”
From the articles, there seemed to be an increased amount of venom aimed at gays. Are they worried John Roberts is soft on homos? That pillar of judicial temperament, Robert Bork, joined in on the gay bashing:
Rejected Supreme Court nominee Robert H. Bork warned that the high court has defined homosexuality as “a constitutional right . . . and once homosexuality is defined as a constitutional right, there is nothing the states can do about it, nothing the people can do about it.”
This crowd wants Justices who will impose theocratic rule. They are going to do everything they can to succeed.
