Allow Focus on the Family to Clarify: No Gay Supreme Court Justices, Ever

Yesterday we noted that in its report about conservatives supposedly attacking (maybe gay) Supreme Court possibilities like Elena Kagan, the Wall Street Journal didn’t actually name any groups or individuals attacking them. Leave it to Focus on the Family to step up to the plate.

And it’s not just Kagan that cannot be a contender, says FOTF’s Tom Minnery (pictured). No gay candidates at all.

It has been reported that we would not oppose any U.S. Supreme Court nominee over their ’sexual orientation.’ Our Judicial Analyst [Bruce Hausknecht] made a statement to this effect in an interview with The Plum Line. To be honest, this is one of those conversations we’d like to ‘do over.’ We can assure you that we recognize that homosexual behavior is a sin and does not reflect God’s created intent and desire for humanity. Further, we at Focus do affirm that character and moral rectitude should be key considerations in appointing members of the judiciary, especially in the case of the highest court in the land. Sexual behavior–be it heterosexual or homosexual–certainly lies at the heart of personal morality.

    Well, no wonder he’s miserable and close-minded. If Nature had done that to me, I might be too.

    Fundyies are the scum of the earth. Enjoy your corporate theocratic fascism, straight Amercia.

    Hey, gays can head up FoF but no way to the SCOTUS. Um, duh. I guess the lack of daylight from locking yourself in a closet would enable one to come up with such ironic crap.
