Don't dislocate anything being all enlightened, there, Senators.
Sen. Jeff Sessions (Ala.), the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Wednesday he could consider a gay nominee for the nation’s highest court.I'm willing to bet that if President Obama nominated an openly gay person to the Supreme Court, most if not all of the people quoted here would find some example of "activist judging" that would make it, so sorry, impossible for them to support such a person's nomination, but to be fair, I expect most of them will do that no matter who the President nominates. He could bring Bork back and most of them would wonder if Bork had turned.
“I’m not inclined to think that’s an automatic disqualification,” Sessions said of a gay nominee. He said he intends to consider only the nominee’s legal judgment when deciding his support for Justice David Souter’s proposed replacement....
“It’s something I’d have to think through with respect to whatever issues might be forthcoming that the court may have to consider,” said Sen. Saxby Chambliss (Ga.).
"I have never, frankly, thought about that situation," said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the GOP standard-bearer in the 2008 presidential election.
“I’ve never thought about it,” said Sen. Bob Corker (Tenn.). “But I don’t look at things through that lens in regards to the type of position we’re talking about."
And here's part of the reason why--warning: that's a Free Republic link.
In my opinion, Sessions is totally wrong. An avowed homosexual judge by definition has their values system screwed up. Would we allow an out-and-proud alcoholic judge or an out-and-proud druggie judge (remember, for most of our history, homosexual sodomy was a crime). I think it shows a major lapse in judgement.Classy people, those Freepers.
Oh, no. Just as you think this pile of !@(*# we’re in couldn’t get any worse...
You’re right, to allow a discussion of such an appointment shows a huge shift in judgment. To argue with the insane is to grant them a measure of sanity that they don’t possess. And at the very least the homosexual orientation is disordered. That’s so obvious that it is appalling to hear such nonsense considered.
There’s no way a gay supreme could be impartial.
Jeff needs to join the Rat party of snakes Homos and Pedophiles.
Let’s be honest. When you consider what Barry is likely to send up as a Supreme Court nominee, who or what they like to sleep with is probably going to be one of their least problematic aspects.
If the judge has a history of gay activism or decisions in that vane... his “legal judgment” would disqualify him. Sessions is just avoiding a leftist attack... something we must do until we are strong enough to attack back... which we are not at the moment.
Alright Alabama, go after this guy. Bury him with phone calls and emails.
