Well, it's done

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Jun 26, 2003

The Supreme Court has struck down the Texas sodomy law 6-3. I don't even have to look at the official statement to know that the three were Rehnquist, Scalia, and Thomas. Now does anyone doubt the importance of judicial nominees? The Democrats certainly do or they wouldn't be fighting tooth and nail against every Bush nominee.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    It's long since time that the court was reined in. The constitution does not give interpretive authority to the court--even if it did, it doesn't give the court exclusive interpretive authority over the other branches of government. The court gets away with outrageous anti-constitutional acts because no one has the courage to stand up and say no. The president could refuse to enforce this decision and the Congress could take the matter out of the court's jurisdiction--but don't hold your breath.
