Rod Parsley: It's Not Judicial Activism If Judges Are Conservatives

According to Rod Parsley, if judges overturn laws that are supported by conservatives, they are outcome-based activist judges who don’t care about the Constitution. However, Parsley says that it isn’t judicial activism if courts overturn laws backed by progressives, such as campaign finance reform and health care reform. Rather than argue for judicial modesty or restraint, Parsley supports judges overturning laws as long as they are laws traditionally supported by the left.

Illogically, after praising himself for decrying “judicial activism,” Parsley slams liberals for accusing the courts of activism when they disagree with their rulings.

“See, when liberals realize they can’t win on the arguments of the facts, they attempt to win in the war of words, and often they do win,” Parsley says, “that’s how abortion came to be known as ‘women’s health care,’ and perverting the definition of family became ‘marriage equality,’ lately, they’ve taken to calling Bible-believing Christians ‘evolution deniers.’ and now this, calling fidelity to the Constitution judicial activism. Words mean things.”
