    Re: Judge Says There is a "Faith War" in the US

    So perhaps their "story" is a bit biased.
    Who cares. They're her quotes.

    Probably bull anyhow. Puffy says so.
    Do you see the at the bottom of my post? I have no idea who this guy is, and have no idea if he is biased. I was making a joke b/c you tend to always bring up the author whenever there is an article which you disagree with.

    But, apparently, you cannot take a joke, so I will just say sorry, and please leave me out of this because, frankly, I don't care about her or her comments.

    One quote can be interpreted in many ways. You know this, Rojo. Mr. Wellsten is a far-left leaner. Google him up... although I suspect that you know of him already. Wellsten IMO is part of the problem for people who vote different than myself. Very extreme in his writings. I hope people like him keep getting the limelight.

    It is too bad that freedom of speech is only for certain people. I am sure (HA!) that the ACLU would be upset at you all for this. Any cases that this lady based her decision on religion when interpreting laws in the United States? Throw them out here for all to see. If not, then there is not a problem.

    Yeah but why do I get the feeling that if this were a story coming from a conservative publication with a person's exact quotes that some on here would be attacking the type of publication and claiming a biased slant.

    Just jokin' back atcha. I knew what you meant and where you were coming from on your comments. You are right though... always need to consider the source.

    I did not bring you into this... you did that. I'll remember how sensitive you are in the future!

    Peace!

    I'm not sensitive at all - I just am avoiding political topics. And if you were joking back then one of the emoticons would have conveyed that, and thus I would have known.

    If she's nominated to be a federal appellate court judge, I'd say "her audience" is the whole country.

    I'm just asking what she means. I think there might be something wrong with that comment, so I'm trying to get clarification and not jump to conclusions. You said there was "nothing wrong with her comments." I presume that means you understand them.

    So can you tell me what she means by that comment?

    It's all cool, Puffy. I guess some of our political talks of old made your joke hit below the belt a bit. But it was funny! And I ripped into an author yesterday, so I asked for it.

    My apologies.

    Are you implying they put words in her mouth?

    Yeah but why do I get the feeling that if this were a story coming from a conservative publication with a person's exact quotes that some on here would be attacking the type of publication and claiming a biased slant.
    I don't know why you get that feeling.

    Meaning I don't understand why she would think otherwise--as in, why does a federal judge think that liberty and freedom cannot exist without religion?

    That is what I don't understand about her comment.

    My only guess is because its an easy deflection.

    BTW, Brown has the lowest American Bar Association passing rating. But then again, this is about politics.

    PS: I'm sure the ABA is part of the cabal arrayed against God-and-freedom lovers everywhere.

    I am not sure that I agree with the whole country is her audience, Rosie. She was speaking to a certain group of people when her comments were made. Granted, future appointments could depend on words that come out of her mouth now. And this is the decision of the president (appointing) and the congressional committee (vote on it). Technically we do elect the president and the members of congressional committees, so you are right to a degree.

    Honestly I do not care about the meaning of her comments. At least not as they are reported by The Advocate. There is no doubt that The Advocate has a bias (like Jerry Falwell has a bias... been in a much-much diff. way). So when I hear news from a source that is not known to be objective (politically), I take it with a grain of salt and do not read too much into it. Now if she had said something to the degree of "we must call all illegal aliens", then I might be alarmed. She seems to be a religious person and perhaps firmly believes in her religion. But unless she makes rulings (her job as a judge, not as a speaker) based on religion, then I do not care about these sort of comments. If she starts ruling on law interpretations bsed on only religion, then I will call her out as well.
