  • I don't know if I agree that he did something right. He said that he stepped down because he knew he would lose the lawsuit, not because he was wrong. But I suppose you can consider it a right if you take it any way you can get it.


    Either way you shake it, he shouldn't be on the bench.  JMO.

  • It looks like even he would agree with you.

    "I would probably do the same thing again," he said. "I found out I can't be a justice of the peace and have a conscience."

  • Anon, his conscience has nothing to do with his duties, just the law, this is why he was asked to resign. That is what he did right!

  • Anon it is not acceptance but following the law he was sworn to follow, a very simple concept that he didn't seem to follow!

  • The can be forced acceptance you know! People seem to think you can legislate personal acceptance of something but you can't.

    I don't agree with what this guy did. I could see the forced acceptance thing being a big issue where homosexuality is involved.
