<---HomoSith Judges Vaughn Walker (seated) and James Ware.
The first sentence that came to my mind when Judge James Ware upheld Judge Vaughn Walker's self-serving prop 8 ruling was...
"So this is how liberty dies. With thunderous applause." -Padme Amidala/Episode III
Once again, the false comparison between race, gender, and sexual sin has eclipsed the fact that Judge Walker stood to gain personally from his decision to throw out the legal votes of over seven million Californians.
"...In his 19-page decision — a response to the first attempt in the nation to disqualify a judge based on sexual orientation — Ware had a bigger message. Gay judges, he said, are just like minority and female jurists: They can be impartial, too, even in cases that might affect them. .."
Homosexuality is a state of mind/emotion, and membership in the glbt community is voluntary, it is not innate like the gender and skin color that comes with birth. Although homosexuality is not an overnight choice, being "gay" is a matter of choice; the end result of a series of choices, like heroin addiction. Although I recognize that a heroin addict has all of the same civil rights that I do, I will not support the lifestyle of a heroin addict as I do not support the glbt community. Nor do I hate the heroin addict since I know how they became an addict.
