More on Judge Roberts

Christian lawyer and pundit John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute is not happy about Roberts' non-compassionate approach to law. A snip:

" So how do you get a decision like the one handed down by Roberts? By taking compassion out of the equation and meting out the judgments of the law in a vacuum, that's how. Roberts is exactly what one would expect George W. Bush to choose--deferential to authority, whether government or business, and certainly not a civil libertarian. Although he appears to be a thinking judge who sees [human] pain, he's like the father who says before spanking his child, 'This hurts me more than it hurts you.'"

Both my parents used that line on me. I hated hearing it and I couldn't believe that they would think that I would fall for it.
