    Thanks goodness for the AFA’s honesty. I personally applaud them for coming out of the closet so to speak.

    Their unpardonable offence, however, is overlooking the most obvious reason to never appoint a homosexual to the Supreme Court (one far with far greater weight than the vanilla objections they raised); have you seen the outfits they wear? Horrible! Any homosexual forced to wear those dowdy, frumpy old outfits would doubtlessly soon be not only stalked by the gay fashion police but would suffer from a spiritual malaise that would induce a slow lingering death. Therefore appointing a homosexual to the Supreme Court would be an act of unparalleled cruelty, like forcing a dog to live in an excessively small cage or making a Republican be honest about their small government inclinations.Report

    I always find that when social conservatives of the homophobic bigot variety start yammering about the judiciary and Lawrence v Texas they seem to really shine a light on their neverending wells of stupidity.

    WTF does the AFA or most social conservatives know about the Constitution anyway? “I don’t see a right to X!!! Ack! Judicial activism!” is a telltale sign of someone I have no interest in debating. I can a train a monkey to beat that kind of opponent.Report

    Precisely the same arguments were made about women serving on juries and as judges back in the era when they couldn’t. I can’t find them online, but Linda Kerber’s No Constitutional Right to Be Ladies has some cartoons you’d appreciate, as well as some very similar arguments from the early part of the twentieth century.Report

    This is just an outlier. There are so many decent moderate Christians that are against this sort of extremism this place will be out of business in a week.Report

    This was interesting: “The scales of “justice” would be tipped irrevocably toward the homosexual agenda and it would be moronic to think otherwise.” We could call it the ‘argument from not needing to make an augment because you’d be stupid to disagree anyway’.Report

    • Avatar Jaybird in reply to Rufus says:

      @Rufus, “A homosexual judge cannot help but give the home-field advantage to every legal team appearing before him who represents homosexual causes”

      Home field advantage?

      What the hell is gay home field advantage?

      Anyway, it seems far more likely that we’ll get yet another guy who has worked with the prosecutor’s office, has worked on the bench, and who, once again, will always pick The State over The Citizen.

      Oh, and happens to be gay this time.

      How novel.Report

    In a way, it’s sweet. This is clearly the tone of a bunch of scum who’re realizing that they’ve lost the majority of Americans, and are sliding down into Cranktown.

    “I do not recall the American Family Association in 1991 raising any objections to Justice Thomas’ appointment on the grounds that he “freely admits that he engages routinely in behavior that was still a felony” in his state of residency in 1967 ”

    Oh no, because by that time they had repented of racism. Besides, these days a lot of their fellow bigots were in black churches.

    “Next Stop – the Air Force Academy!”
