Belief in Flying Spaghetti Monster Now Required to Sit on Supreme Court

*Spontaneous Entry Alert*

This just in from the "You Gotta be Fucking Kidding Me" files. It now appears that belief in magic is a requirement to be nominated for a seat on the Supreme Court. Quoth the Bush:

"People ask me why I picked Harriet Miers. They want to know Harriet Miers' background. They want to know as much as they possibly can before they form opinions. And part of Harriet Miers' life is her religion."

You chose her because of her religion. That irritates me so bad, it's hard to comment. Says Scott McClellan:

"Faith is very important to Harriet Miers. But she recognizes that faith and that her religion and that her personal views don't have a role to play when it comes to making decisions."

Oh really? Well, since they never discuss what or whose magic Miers believes in, what if she has to make a decision against her faith? We'll assume she's a Xian since the Prez likes her.

What about school prayer? What about a woman's right to choose? The death sentence?

I guarantee she and all the other religious Justices base part if not all of their decisions on their book of magic written a thousand years ago.

Now, to all the fundies who read this and would like to bitch at how stupid I am, think of this:

What if, in the future, the President of the United States nominates a Supreme Court Justice based on their Muslim beliefs? What if they're Hindu? Now you know how I feel. Anyway,

Evil = More Evil

It's just maddening.
I hope the press doesn't slack off on this one.

I love your comparison of her to the Emperor. I was going to say she looked kinda like Linda Blair possessed.

This is, of course, outrageous.

She makes me think of some old, rotting potato.

Well, first things first.

Is it just me, or do the two of them look related?

Even though I believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster;

I still didn't vote for Bush.

She looks even more like Palpatine than Ratzinger, and that's saying something.

Where do you think we are? Some country established under secular principles designed to prevent the government from having a religious agenda that would inevitably lead to the persecution of those in the minority? The gall!
