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.
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!
Hmmmm ... I wonder who appointed this amazing Judge Fox who seems too 'clever' for his own good?? He doesn't even seem to understand what the law is all about. The public morality is rooted in opposition to murder, rape, theft, child abuse, polygamy, bestiality, etc, etc.
In other words, according to our enlightened little judge here, we shouldn't allow any traditional morality to govern anything. I wonder if he would really like the NO RULES society he apparently advocates. Obviously, most people in Arkansas don't agree with him as clear majorities voted for George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004.
Maybe Judge Fox should move to New York to be with his beloved fellow Arkansans Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Has somebody contacted Dave Elswick/Foxnews/Agapepress/the American Family Association/Rush and the rest of the conservative media about this? Conservative/Christian media are probably the only ones that will report this story. I can contact the local AFA guy here and Agapepress. I don't contact radio stations much.
I was an expert witness supporting the Arkansas regulation prohibiting homosexuals from being foster parents, on the basis of the best interests of the children. But the judge struck down the regulation prohibiting foster parenting by households with a homosexually behaving adult (Howard vs. CWARB case).
I found the trial of Howard v. CWARB to be utterly corrupt because both the plaintiffs and the state were represented by attorneys affiliated with the ACLU. The ACLU brought the plaintiffs case against the state. The state Child Welfare Board was represented by an active ACLU member, namely Kathy Hall.
I know for a fact that the Arkansas Bar has an ongoing investigation of Kathy Hall for this apparent gross conflict of interest. The Arkansas Bar is currently investigating the way in which Kathy Hall very clearly appears to have sabotaged the state's defense.
In another recent Arkansas case involving a homosexual youth, ACLU's Leslie Cooper (plaintiff's lawyer for Howard v. CWARB) and Kathy Hall (defendant's lawyer for Howard v. CWARB) served as co-counsel. I discovered the facts of this on the ACLU website.
I am shocked that Judge Tim Fox did not declare a mistrial because he was notified about this conflict of interest by another attorney in October. The CWARB and the Governor should file for a mistrial because ACLU activist attorneys were representing both the plaintiff and the defendant (the state) in Howard v. CWARB.
Because of their conduct, I just filed suit in Federal Court in Arkansas today against Kathy Hall and the other ACLU attorneys involved in this case.
Unfortunately in his written decision, Judge Tim Fox overlooked the scientific studies I presented as an expert witness in the case that show that the majority of foster children have psychological disorders resulting from their losses and maltreatment, and that any increased source of stress interferes with recovery from psychological disorder. This evidence clearly pertains to the welfare of the foster children which ran counter to the Judge's legal basis for his ruling in which he said the regulation was enforcing morality and did not pertain to the welfare of the child (which is probably why he ignored the scientific evidence I presented).
I hope you can get the truth out to the public on this scandal.

I guess laws prohibiting crime and banning public indecency are also unconstitutional now. As I keep saying, liberal judges are the bane of our society.
Woo-hoo! Party at my house! Bring lots of cute women and alcohol!
If he's state and if they elect judges - recall him.
