More RightThink on Roberts

Posted by: Hammer / 12:41 PM

More fallout on the Right from Roberts' involvement in Romer v. Evans. The Free Congress Foundation weighs in via Agape:

...The revelation that Supreme Court nominee John Roberts was instrumental in a homosexual rights ruling has stunned his supporters. The Romer v. Evans decision, which overturned a Colorado initiative that denied special rights to homosexuals, is considered among the most egregious examples of judicial activism ever. Paul Weyrich of the Free Congress Foundation, who says he is "troubled" by the revelation of Roberts' involvement in that case, recalls that the ruling was "a terrible one because it said that the people of Colorado would have had to be prejudiced against homosexuals in order to vote for that proposition -- [and] I think that is an outrage." Weyrich explains what happens when, as in Roberts' case, an attorney is part of a huge law firm. "When a more senior partner comes and taps you on the shoulder and says, 'I want you to help on this' -- if he doesn't do it, the guy doesn't advance," he says. But the Free Congress chairman says he would have handled the decision differently had he been in Roberts' place. "I would say, 'Sorry, I can't help' -- even if it meant that my career would not advance." Weyrich and other conservatives want Roberts to explain his feelings about the decision.

Sounds more like Weyrich wants to know how much Roberts hates gays. Is it the regular amount or is he squishy homophobic?
