As Unscrewing the Inscrutable points out, people of faith apparently feel they are under attack by secularists. As if people of faith are persecuted for their beliefs. What a bunch of utter crap. Says California Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown
“These are perilous times for people of faith,” she said, “not in the sense that we are going to lose our lives, but in the sense that it will cost you something if you are a person of faith who stands up for what you believe in and say those things out loud.”
Ms. Brown is confused. Religious people can and do say whatever the fuck they want whenever and wherever they want. I will fight and die for their right to do so. The real war here is people like Ms. Brown who think that people who insist on the separation of church and state are a threat to religious people. We are not. In fact, secularists are a group made up largely of religious people!
Secularists have no problem with people of faith. The people we have a problem with are those that would inject their faith into our government. Judge Brown clearly confuses her personal faith with her duties as a judge and for that, the Democrats are completely correct to oppose her nomination to the federal judiciary.
