HOMOPHOBIA ALERT

.


The Republican representative to the fundamental christian movement in America, President George Bush has nominated Judge Leslie Southwick to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

Judge Southwick's record plainly shows that he cannot be given the responsibility to protect the basic rights of all Americans.


As a Mississippi judge, Southwick put his personal bias before widely regarded scientific and legal evidence - as in one case where he separated a biological mother from her 8-year-old child in part because of the mother's sexual orientation.

Even more troubling, Judge Southwick used this case to further his own agenda by joining a concurrence citing highly charged and irrelevant Mississippi rules against "the practice of homosexuality" - including policies regarding sodomy.

This type of bigoted decision-making is unacceptable for any judge, let alone a lifetime member of the U.S. Court of Appeals.

And the beat goes on....

It appears our fearless leader is going to make sure his decisions will have this country fucked up for many generations to come.

I do believe that if I was gay and lived in this "good ol' boy's" jurisdiction I'd put my house on the market asap and get the hell out of dodge!

Yes, lifetime judicial nominations are one of the most important powers of the president - with the power to affect us all long after the current bozo is out of office.
