What judicial activists?
The USAToday reported two more court decisions today that were adverse to the interests of amendment opponents and to gay families. The Tennessee Supreme Court refused to keep their amendment off the ballot this fall and the 8th District Circuit Court of Appeals (yes, that’s a federal court) overturned a trial court decision that had held Nebraska’s same sex only focused amendment unconstitutional.
So, now we should be able to spend our time debating the merits (or demerits) of the proposal before the voters in November and not the tired and discredited shibboleth “activist judges.”
And, Virginia voters who oppose the amendment are forewarned that they can’t count on there being any judges out there to do their job for them if they fail to turn out and turn down ballot question #1 on November 7th.
