California's Bumbler In A Black Robe

Editorial - August 17th, 2010 - Washington Examiner

Walker's decision is best read as an attempt to show that "judicial application of the rationality test can be a parody of intelligent analysis," according to constitutional law professor Robert F. Nagel. The decision contains, for example, a "finding of fact" that "religious beliefs that gay and lesbian relationships are sinful or inferior to heterosexual relationships harm gays and lesbians." Walker is entitled to his own opinions about religious faith and the faithful, of course, but his clearly prejudicial reasoning exposes himself and the federal judiciary to parody and ridicule.

It appears lost on Walker that how he arrived at his decision is as important as the ruling itself. His lofty judgments on mankind, insolently cloaked as "fact," are suggestive of an arrogant political class that has no regard for voters.

Suggestive? I believe that America's 'ruling class' has left little doubt they hold the citizens of this nation in total contempt. "No regard" is as much of an understatement as "suggestive." What is sad is that it is nearly as accurate a summation of the attitude of conservative judges as it is of liberal judges. The entire judiciary is pretty arrogant and indifferent to the rights of the 'great unwashed' . They see themselves as ruling over our nation in a judicial oligarchy where they are the supreme power.
