"We shouldn't be thinking like that for the United States Supreme Court."
More troubling is Sessions remark to Neil Cavuto, that he'd vote for a pro-abortion candidate. That is very troubling especially coming from such a staunch social conservative.
Yes, but I think what he said was that it wasn’t the person’s personal opinion on something, but how they would interpret the Constitution. In theory this is correct, someone’s personal opinion shouldn’t matter. On the other hand, in reality, I’m not sure almost all turn their interpretation of the Constitution to fit their belief.
Well, Sessions knows that 0bama is going to choose a Pro-Death Candidate, so if that’s the ONLY thing hindering an otherwise good choice, he’ll vote for that person. I think that’s what Sessions was saying.
I’m thinking that if they can find ANYTHING to disqualify a candidate other than that the candidate is Pro-Death/Abortion, they’ll use that to vote against him or her.
As for the Gay issue. As long as he or she is not soliciting other Judges for a love-in-fest, and the person doesn’t flaunt it while on the bench . . . who cares? If that person gets blackmailed because he or she failed to ‘come out’ before approval, it would behoove the person to admit to being gay as an answer to the blackmailer. Take the wind out of his sails.
