    Clearly another biased religious fanatic who is incapable of living up to his judicial oath to apply the law without fear or favour.

    If you can’t be judicial, Holmes, then being a judge is not the job for you.
    Idiot !

    Hell, at least we can give him props for recusing himself. I’m pleasantly surprised. No judge HAS to recuse themselves from any case coming before them.

    His wife must have a ton of self-esteem to have co-written that article. I hope she didn’t injure her fragile constitution, though she was undoubtedly just transcribing his brilliant words, not actually writing anything. That’s not proper work for women folk.

    He recused himself to avoid losing professional and personal contacts. I doubt that ethics were involved. Either that or he can be blackmailed for who knows what or has a gay relative. Tigers don’t change their stripes.

    I give him props for realizing that his personal bias was too much and would have interfered with the case. Good for him. Any judge that cannot dispassionately render judgment on this, whether they are “pro” or “con”, should follow suit and recuse themselves.

    At least he has the good grace to recuse himself if he feels he cannot be impartial (or regarded as impartial) in this regard.

    The gentleman, in question, is to be applauded if this is, in fact, the case.

  6. Chuck Mielke says

    Let’s take a moment to recognize that, like most of us, this man is neither completely rational nor completely corrupt. A person of lesser integrity would not have recused himself. A person of greater learning couldn’t hold such views on rape-induced pregnancies.

    Well, the best one can say about this fool, is that he has something of a moral streak by recusing himself. You certainly can’t say much about his thinking processes on humanity, though–he seems to be out of touch with the actual meaning of the New Testament.

  8. Paul Douglas says

    Scalia and Clarence Thomas never recuse themselves despite egregious public politicking on behalf of their ĂŒber-rightwing dominionist agenda. This guy has far more personal ethics than those jerks.

    There are people in politics who fail to see outside their own box. They are led to believe that their personal crusades will never be questioned, because they won’t, by the people organizing them (donors). Gay rights advancement has been a shakeup for the politically small minded, because they truly NEVER thought they would happen especially on the scale and with the pace at which they are moving today (not really fast enough still). Society today and society in the future will follow the advacement of rights and certain people will be seen as obstacles to progress.

    When a judge has the forsight to see that he’s no longer capable of impartial judgement is a good thing.
