    No one is chipping away at anything. That is the point. What we have seen over the last 2-3 decades is a push by the radical right-wing to try to infiltrate the public square with a state sponsored religion. This is what people have fought back against. Most people in this country are fine with people practicing whatever religion they want....in their churches, homes and hearts. But like Christ rejected the Pharisees who were hypocrites and wanted to pray in the public square so that others could witness them....the American people will continue to reject the right-wing social agenda. That isn't "chipping away at religious freedom".....that is rightfully defending a separation of church/state.

We as a nation are forever indebted to Kennedy who has the wisdom and foresight to understand the Constitution and its guarantees.
    don't be fooled. Kennedy is extremely conservative with gay marriage being an exception. He's been talked up as being the central position but he is waaaaaaayyyy right on just about every other issue.

    It's not ironic, but it is telling. It seems that the litmus tests of Republican Presidents isn't nearly as effective as the lockstep litmus tests that Democrat Presidents follow when appointing solid, down the line, non wavering, adherents to the liberal prime directives. You'd be hard pressed to name a single time Ginsberg, as an example, hasn't opted to rule in the most liberal/progressive manner possible irrespective of the law.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    He's definitely conservative on many issues.....I completely recognize that...but compared with Scalia, Scalito and the nimble-brained Thomas....Kennedy has shown a more moderate side on several issues.

    The whole "litmus-test" really got started with GHB....since then it has been much more prominent from both sides of the aisle. Prior to GHB....you had a number of justices appointed by both sides that didn't cow-tow the party line. O'Connor being another appointed by Reagan.

    I don't see what basis will remain for applying the consanguinity requirements of state marriage laws to homosexual partners. The traditional concern about an increased risk of genetic defects in offspring no longer is in play. Why should the right to marry each other granted to two homosexual second cousins, for example, and yet denied to them just because they are first cousins? What sense will there be in continuing to prevent two sisters, or a father and son, from marrying each other, forcing them to conduct their homosexual liaisons in secret? Why should they have to hide their love from the world, just because it is different?

    Soon it will be time for an Ozzie and Harriet show for today, featuring the wholesome, all-American homosexual, incestuous, polygamous family. Just imagine the possibilities, especially when they interacted with their equally progressive neighbors and friends! "Rick, I hope you have a good time on your date with Cindy and her mom and brother!" "Oh, thanks, Pop--I will. We're going to the malt shop, and then we'll probably play a little strip poker." Even the family dog would take on a new and unusual significance, whenever it appeared in an episode.

    Name a Democrat nominated Supreme Court Justice who fits your fantasy.

    Don't discount Alito. He has plenty of time left to show just how insane he is... and he will.

    Alito, like Thomas doesn't have an original thought in his head. He won't until Scalia retires.
