I would think that disqualification for a given situation under the stipulated circumstances would NOT look especially good on a justice's resume. Exactly what the review process for Ohio justices is (presuming there is any), I don't know, but flense scar tissue enough times and the patient won't like it much!
Glad to see that ruling by the Ohio Sup. Ct. Only thing is, I don't think they go far enough. If a judge is going to decline to perform one of the duties of the office based on his/her religious beliefs, then that person no longer needs to be a judge. Bias and prejudice have no place in the judiciary. Too bad Scalia and Thomas don't understand that.
The following just came down as a ruling by the Ohio State Supreme Court. You can click on the image below to enlarge it:
Carl, thank you so much for posting some positive uplifting stories!
Here is one more - in Uganda, which is a profoundly homophobic country, these courageous people had their celebration anyway. They had to be careful, but it was outdoors and open. In addition, a Uganda presidential candidate has spoken out against homophobia.
Hey, folks, here's an article profiling several trans youth. Each profile has an accompanying video.
Watch these videos!! These kids are awesome!!
I'd have to say the same thing about their parents, as well.
Trans Teens Are Sharing Their Inspiring Personal Stories In Hopes O...
This is part of a media campaign from the Transgender Law Center.
I'm very happy with the progress gays and lesbians have achieved but, sadly, our trans brothers and sisters have been left behind. Too often they are left out of the LGBTQI conversation. We need to support and defend them much more than we have.
Thanks Joan and Cat. Yes, the Episcopalians also had the good sense to dump the Pope!
Congratulations to you and your husband, Bertold!
(And if you do go to confession, you can tell the priest they'll have to adapt to reality. :-) I know a gay man who "fired" the Catholic Church for considering him "intrinsically disordered"; he's still a theist, but happily Episcopalian -- as Robin Williams put it, "all of the pageantry, none of the guilt.")
Bertold, Congratulations! You are part of the new changes and a tribute to you both. My best wishes for a healthy, strong, happy 35 more years.
Thanks so much for all the good wishes guys! It's a bit of an anti-climax at this point. Deciding if I should wear shorts or jeans. I'll have to go to confession first, of course.
