|On December 29, 2004. Judge Tim Fox in Little Rock declared that Arkansas Laws based on the morals of the people are "unconstitutional.
Ruling in a case brought by the Arkansas chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union - ACLU, Pulaski County Circuit Judge Timothy Fox said the state Child Welfare Agency Review board had overstepped its authority by trying to regulate public morality. Fox threw out the state's ban against foster parenthood by gay couples or by households that include a gay adult.

A Sept. 20, 2004 order by Pulaski County Circuit Judge Tim Fox removed Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader from the ballot.
Fox ruled that the more than 1,000 people who signed petitions to place Nader's name on the ballot did not formally name him as "their" choice for president.

The judge needs to be impeached, removed from office, and never given responsibility over the life of anything more than a pig for the rest of his.
Would murder be a public morality law?
He should be impeached. All law is based on morality.

A county judge making this decision? It might as well be Joe Blow in the street, but we should beware that the ACLU has this kind of idiocy for the whole country.
He sounds like a Judge LEARNED HAND wana bee.
He should be but the media will have him on the national news glorifying his opinion.
Then the Child Welfare Agency shouldn't be judging the morality of 'child abuse.' It is just how people raise their children.
This is no problem. State Senator Jim Holt will step in on this one and help make it a STATE LAW that homosexuals cannot have foster children. Maybe an agency board can't make that ruling, but the legislature of Arkansas sure can!
IS there a sane way of controlling these immoral idiot judicial activists and lawyers?
I would prefer the power of RECALL & IMPEACHMENT over simply adding a new RESTRICTIVE "law" on liberties.
My personal opinion? declare that within 365 days, ALL laws other than the basic Constitution of Arkansas (or better yet, the USA) will be null and void. PERIOD!
That would give the poiticians one year to figure out what really is important and to realize that their very livelihood is at stake!
Yes, the best way would be to throw out the unconstitutional law in Arkansas that says candidates for Judicial positions CANNOT make any statements about where the would stand on any issue or case. We elect our judges, but there is no way that is an informed choice. For example in this last election that elitist twit Collins Kilgore (who wrote the horrendous original Lakeview decision) ran commercials saying he "interprets the law, not makes it". By law, his opponent could not get on the radio and say, "He DOES make up the law, look at his lakeview ruling!".
We should change that law, heat up judicial campaigns, and then let an INFORMED public toss out the elitists.
Just another sweet reminder of the Clinton Curse.
