WASHINGTON (RNS) Conservative interest groups, perhaps seeing their best chance in years to advance their causes, have argued aggressively in their briefs to the court not only for favorable rulings but for overturning some of the court's time-honored precedents.

  1. Thanks, guys and gals, but it’s really too late now to pretend to be conservative. With your help (and the assistance of Mr. Evolving-Beliefs-In-Chief), America is now locked into a collision course with spiritual disaster, to be followed by national, disaster.

  2. It’s really mighty funny the author quotes Paul Clement, since he’s the one who lost DOMA and the California H8te Vote for the “Gay Obsessed Party.” Righ-wingers can go right ahead and hope for the new term, but until late June, they were still insisting the Supreme Court was going to destroy the existing marriages of hundreds of thousands of legally married American same gender couples and “ban gay marriage nationwide.” Remember, members of the “Gay Obsessed Party” also thought Willard Romney was going to win in a landslide.

  3. Misdiagnosis again Doc, sorry. Although the SC may have had certain moments of clarity. Moments that have obviously caused panic for some, as it has potential to change their narrow, hate filled view of what everyone in America should be forced to live like. The SC should have also given them some hope to keep their false faith, and hate filled beliefs alive, because it has also leaned far right with decisions like Americans United which could go a long way towards the realization of the Borg nation they seem to be yearning for.

    However, because those on the far right have many false beliefs, religion included, they are blinded by the reality that most of Americans don’t agree with their agenda, as evidenced in the last two nation wide presidential elections.

    Although I don’t agree with CCM’s suggestion, Russia is too damn cold, but perhaps you should consider some changes in your life that would make you happier. It is better to live this life happy and content than angry, frustrated and full of hate, as it is the only one we have.

    Consider living life, and loving people, without needing to believe in any reward for doing so, or punishment for not.
    Good day!

    Frank, I hope that we get to a point where we don’t count on the SC (Choosing not to add OTUS, as we currently don’t have a United States these days, just red and blue states) or any other entity to stop medically unessesary abortions, but ourselves. Not because of some religious reason, but rather for one purley based on loving each other. Wild idea huh?

    Consider living life, and loving people, without needing to believe in any reward for doing so, or punishment for not.
    Good day!

  5. Frank, You just have to place your faith in something real. Something that you can touch, see, have real two-way communications with, and prove is real; humans. Not in something that you can’t; God.

    We have the power within us to treat each other well, just because we should.

    Consider living life, and loving people, without needing to believe in any reward for doing so, or punishment for not.
    Good day!

  6. Good luck with that brother.
