Hey, it's only democracy we're talking about -- why not rev up an ignorant turf war?
This pic, anti-intellectualism at its worst, comes from the Family Research Council:
Ya know, because it's not that the judges are a crucial part of constitutional democracy. It's not that the judges have a vested interest in protecting majority rights. It's not that they are required by their jobs to fairly interpret the constitution. It's not that the court's original determination that sexual orientation constitutes a suspect class raises crucial questions about equal protection. It's not that millions of voters stood against Prop 8. It's not that some people who voted for Prop 8 actually understand the role of the judiciary and will also understand if it's determined that the measure be overturned. It's not that these trained legal scholars found themselves on California's highest court because they actually understand the law. No, no -- It's that the judges are nothing more than an extremist, activist mob of black robe fetishists who are evil anytime they don't bend towards the discriminatory whims of the religious right.
Unreal. Our opposition is simply unreal.
THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN!! and, um, they were WRONG!
