The Litmus Test
If the Supreme Court nominee agrees with this qoute from Scalia, then he/she has got my support!
The Court (along with the president and Congress) is there to decide LEGAL issues. I think the entire government needs to recognize that distinction.
I'm gonna guess that you are being sarcastic.
The religous right wants the court to decide moral issues?
No the religous right uses the legislature to push moral issues. It's the left that uses the courts to overturn the laws passed. I.e. abortion, anti-sodomy laws, capital punishment,the list goes on and on...
He's gonna put a Conservative there to uphold the laws that dictate morality. And legislating morality is just as bad as ddetermining morality through the courts and it's something that American democracy should not be fond of.
All laws are based on morality.
