The Judicial War on Faith
Blair at the Secular Foxhole blogged
about the new "goon squad" that has formed to take on the judiciary. I serendipitously happened to see their conference on C-SPAN 1 the night before last. If you have access to RealPlayer
(free download available), you can find the clip on C-Span's website
; it aired 4/7/2005.
I'll have more to say on this later.Update:
The Washington Post published an article on the conference: And the Verdict on Justice Kennedy Is: Guilty
Interestingly enough, among the outrageous comments made throughout the conference, one of the speaker's referenced Stalin
of all people. Commenting on Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, Edwin Vieira said, "He [Stalin] had a slogan, and it worked very well for him, whenever he ran into difficulty: 'no man, no problem,' ".
Perhaps this was just a tongue-in-cheek remark, meant only to be flip, but I doubt it. More likely it is an open confession of the contempt and disdain conservatives hold for a secular society and the rule of law. If they have their way, they will abolish both in short order.
