Liberty Counsel's Staver pits being black, gay against being qualified

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2014-02-07 At 1.02.57 PmUsually Mat Staver and his allies at the American Family Association's One News Now site at least try to drum up some supposedly outlandish thing that a judicial nominee said or did fro the bench. In this case, however, Staver and his buddies are simply positioning race and sexual orientation against judicial qualification:

President Obama has submitted a list of five nominees for federal judge posts, and a constitutional law expert suggests America will pay a price.

Among the nominees are four African Americans, one of them homosexual, and the final one is white.

Mat Staver, who heads Liberty Counsel, tells OneNewsNow the president is reaching out to two communities.

"So he gets a black man, who is a practicing homosexual, and now he wants to put this individual in an appointment for life on the federal bench," Staver advises.

He refers to the situation as "ideological bankruptcy."

FULL: Liberty Counsel on federal judge nominees: Do quality, experience matter? [ONN]

I haven't removed any pertinent details. Go read the full piece for yourself. The only case that Staver and ONN raise is that four of the judges are black, and one is both black and gay. That's it. Being born a certain way is the big scandal here that supposedly disqualifies these nominees.

I, for one, appreciate the newfound honesty.
