  •  Emboldened Fundamendalists on the Supreme Court (0+ / 0-)

    I feel like a parrot:  FOUR of our U.S. Supreme Court Justices are unethical, Ideological Roman Catholics.  Hello?  Singly they may or may not have been able to follow JFK's (albeit highly politically expedient) lead of re-emphasizing the separation of church and state.

    But together (with peer pressure emboldening the primate / tribal intolerance of ALL cookbook "religions,") they have gone nuts promoting their "Faith" (tribe).

    Ethically, these four sad, totally-inured-recourse-patriarchs SHOULD recuse themselves on every issue relating to their "faith" (women's rights, gay rights, reproductive rights, church taxation) -- but do NOT hold your breath.  For "belief systems" nearly always trump facts, reason -- and ironically, ethical behavior (a FAR CRY from what's "legal.")  See Cicero on the difference between human "law" and higher law.

    We have an unconscious and inverted supreme court, which deserves all thinking people's utter contempt.  Institutions like the high court do not automatically DESERVE our respect, they too must earn it. And these GUYS have totally blown that.
