Completely routine rubber stamp.

Not one senator voted against.

So of course he’ll recuse himself from any cases dealing with same-sex marriage laws, right?

If not, it would be like a judge ‘coming out’ that he’s in the KKK and not recusing himself on a civil-rights case involving minorities.

At least that’s the trick the homonazis are using (equating same-sex marriage to civil-rights issues).

This is weird. Judging from their recent decisions, I thought ALL federal “judges” were “openly gay” homosexuals regardless of their skin color.

Looks like they are “packing” the court.

Is he “openly gay” in the courtroom?

Even Cruz voted to confirm him.

Surprised? we already know that the public will happily elect someone who is not qualified because of his supposed membership in a victim group.

Gay, black and probably the recipient of an affirmative action education ... what could possibly go wrong? He will become the poster child for liberals for decades to come.

“Openly Gay Judge” huh? So his sexuality is evident even from the bench? What does he do, wear fluroescent pink robes, fringed with silver bells and sky blue tassels? We do not need to ever be made aware of a Judge’s gender preference because supposedly, they are taking a neutral perspective. This trend may have to go to the extreme before it corrects itself. Similar to affirmative action ‘reverse prejudice ratios’ it has taken white employees suing in tort court for discrimination for organizations to become more realistic vs idealistic.

First slip up from Cruz. I think he needs grilling on this in any presidential debate. Cant honestly go after Linda for supporting Kagan and give Cruz a free pass for confirming this a-hole

Wow! Confirmed 98-0! This guy must be one helluva great defender of the constitution, right to life, free speech, religious freedom, right to keep and bear arms, equality under the law, right to the fruits of labor, etc. Definitely won’t be one to force a baker to bake a wedding cake for a same sex couple against his will or force a preacher to marry same sex couples against his religion. Or forcing any company to supply abortion coverage in their healthcare packages or force the taxpayers to pay for abortion against their will. He won’t trample on our rights to freely speak out against homosexualism and he won’t be trying to confiscate our guns. And of course he would not rule that abortion is a constitutional right. Nor will he allow socialist policies to unconstitutionally rob us of the fruits of our labor.

I keep telling you all that not one of these political whores is worth a bucket of horse dung ... NOT ONE! I don’t care how “conservative” they pretend to be at home ... They are all, without exception, cowardly amoral immoral SCUMBAGS. They are all about situation ethics, and moral relativism ... These ass clowns are even worse than the thugs that fomented the Reign of Terror in revolutionary France. They have absolutely no principles - only “party standards,” which can always be lowered. America is infested with putrid garbage for civic servants.

Big whoop. He wasn’t transgendered, was he? Huh? Huh? Now that would be saying something. If he was a one of triplets, and black, sodomite, transgendered and missing both his ears, now that would be making a statement.

Don’t kid yourself - this will NEVER “self-correct” ... NOT EVER! This country is finished. Done, OVER! Accept the fact of our demise. There is no turning back, and there will be NO more remedies. The American Republic is DEAD - it went down with a wimpier - because its people are degenerates and cowards. Thinking it can be salvaged without a total bloodletting is pure fantasy.

Generationally speaking, you may be correct. The same judges legislating from the bench with brash boldness will have to retire or die out of the majority before most of this trend has a chance of changing. I still think that within ten to twenty years, a new way to describe straight marriage that will be ‘court proof’, will have been introduced into Amercian society. We who believe in traditional marriage were caught unprepared. No one, even ten years back, ever would have thought we’d be at the point where appreciation real marriage has become a controversial opinion, one which can take your job away in some circumstances.

I haven’t given up on this nation completely like some, though, yes, it is discouraging. I think the ‘salvation’ of our culture rests largely in the hands of those who are less than 10 years old right now. These young people will encounter enough of us ‘Wise Christian Patriots’ to encourage an educated push back. Fifteen years from now, these former children may become the ‘exotic outsiders’ who catch a wave of change-hunger as did Obama and today’s imitation media.
I think one reason the pendulum will swing back to the right, will be due to the impressive and intimidating growth of China. Many area of China have accepted some forms of capitalism and entrepeneurship. They will serve as a living testament to what we could become again. What we could surpass.

Who cares?

Why should I care about his race?

Why should I care about his sexual preferences?

Or are they saying that I should be a racist sexist?

It should not matter.

You think anyone of the GOP senators would disagree?

That would make them racists.

Wherever skin tone is concerned, the GOP will always give in and the RATS know it.

There sure seems to be a lot of interest in the gay lifestyle amongst the federal judiciary. I wonder what the percentage of gayness is compared to the rest of the population?

I wonder how much of the gay judiciary are NAMBLA members and/or have child porn on their computers.

Jesse Helms must be turning over in his grave.

He would have had the cajones to vote NO on this one.....

I would have voted NO if I had been there concerned with the activism coming from the bench in recent months and the fact that Obama wanted him and not saying a thing about him being gay unless I had asked him about recusing himself from cases related to gay marriage.

We all should care, because there is a 98 percent chance that a gay black nominee will be extremely liberal. He will distort the constitution and trample on the freedom of Christians.

Remember that “Suction Pump Judge” who got booted from the bench for conduct most unbecoming from a judge during a trial. He has a ‘permanent stain’ on his record!
