Religious "Leaders" Demand Liberal Justices Recuse Themselves From Marriage Equality


No. Only Thomas and Scalia may decide gay marriage cases. Thus sayeth the empty cardboard boxes.

I see that conservative activists will be satirizing themselves this week. Well, it is more efficient that way.

Religious leaders are calling on members of the Supreme Court’s liberal wing to recuse themselves from the blockbuster gay-marriage case that the court will begin considering on Tuesday.

Standing on the steps of the Supreme Court, Scott Lively, president of Abiding Truth Ministries, told reporters he’s filing a motion with the Supreme Court calling for the recusal of Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan.

Ginsburg and Kagan have officiated "so-called homosexual wedding ceremonies," says Lively, which is disqualifying.

“In my personal view they have committed an unparalleled breach of judicial ethics by elevating the importance of their own favored political cause of gay rights above the integrity of the court and of our nation.”

Conspicuously absent: Calls for the court's religious conservatives to recuse themselves because their churches have preached against such ceremonies. That is not disqualifying, you see, because Scott Lively says so.

He and more than a dozen leaders of anti-gay-marriage groups stood behind a wall of empty cardboard filing boxes stacked on the steps of the court on Monday morning.

The boxes — 60 in all — were there to "symbolically" represent 300,000 restraining orders that Faith2Action President Janet Porter said will be delivered to the Supreme Court and to Congress to keep the justices from ruling on gay marriage.

I don't know that stacking up five dozen empty boxes meant to "symbolically" express your ideological concerns is a wise public relations move. As an accurate depiction of your arguments, however? Truly a spot-on effort.

It is the law. They are biased and can not look at it correctly.

Don't you mean to say "without prejudice and bias considering only the letter of the law" instead of "correctly?"

No, of course not, you're that kind of RW political hack.

Several are in clear violation of 28 U.S. Code § 455 - Disqualification of justice, judge, or magistrate judge.
