In a move that should surprise absolutely nobody, the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer outdoes even Focus on the Family in declaring that the Religious Right cannot and will not support the idea of a gay Supreme Court nominee, “not under any circumstances,” because they are sexually deviant felons who are inherently incapable of objectivity:
[A] gay judge’s sexual preference will, without any question whatsoever, “interfere with their job.” It’s not possible for it to be otherwise … We simply should not elevate to the highest court in the land people who are known for engaging in sexually abnormal behavior which would technically make them felons in a quarter of the states over which they will have jurisdiction.
A homosexual judge cannot help but give the home-field advantage to every legal team appearing before him who represents homosexual causes. It will be impossible for the visiting team, the team representing sexual normalcy and natural marriage, to get a fair shake in his courtroom.
This has never been more important than right now in contemporary American society. Think for a moment about the number of hot-button issues that revolve around the effort of activists to normalize formally felonious behavior.
Cases involving same-sex marriage are sure to arrive before the Court. Cases involving domestic partnerships and homosexual adoptions are sure to arrive before the Court. Cases involving special rights for homosexuals in the workplace are sure to arrive before the Court. Cases involving homosexual service in the military are sure to arrive before the Court.
Only an utter fool could convince himself that an active homosexual judge could be impartial in rendering judgment on such cases. The scales of “justice” would be tipped irrevocably toward the homosexual agenda and it would be moronic to think otherwise.
With an active homosexual on the bench, Lady Justice will no longer even pretend to be blind. She will be peeking out from under her blindfold to determine the sexual preference of those standing before her, then will let the fold slip back into place before ruling in every case to legitimize sexual deviancy.
Bottom line: the American ideal of absolute equality before the law will inevitably be shredded by a homosexual judge. Neither the Constitution nor the American people should be subjected to that kind of judicial malpractice. We can and should expect more from those who occupy seats on the highest bench in the land.
Imagine, just for a moment, what the response from the Religious Right would be if we replaced every use of the word “homosexual” in this piece with the word “Christian” in opposing a Republican SCOTUS nominee.
