Dear Marriage Supporter,
"Astounding indiscretion." That's how Ed Whelan, writing for NRO's Bench Memos, described United States Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg's recent remarks in an interview with Bloomberg.
In the interview, Ginsburg opined that it "would not take a large adjustment" for the American people to get used to the idea of same-sex marriage.
Of course, as you know, the Supreme Court will be considering the matter of marriage this April—so for Ginsburg to be forecasting her opinion publicly at this time is, indeed, an "astounding indiscretion."
It is the law that a judge should disqualify him- or herself from hearing a case whenever his or her impartiality and lack of bias "might reasonably be questioned."
Given Ginsburg's recent public remarks, I think that it is very reasonable to question whether she'll be impartial—don't you? At any rate, groups like HRC and others pushing the same-sex 'marriage' agenda are celebrating these remarks as an early sign of victory for them!
In her interview remarks, Justice Ginsburg sounded far from impartial:
In recent years, people have said, 'This is the way I am.' And others looked around, and we discovered it's our next-door neighbor — we're very fond of them. Or it's our child's best friend, or even our child. I think that as more and more people came out and said that 'this is who I am,' the rest of us recognized that they are one of us.
Combined with her statement that Americans are ready to accept same-sex 'marriage', and taken in light of the fact that Ginsburg has herself officiated same-sex 'marriage' ceremonies, these remarks are very troubling indeed.
Sign this petition to demand Ginsburg disqualify herself from ruling on a case to which she is clearly not impartial. She has called her own integrity into doubt; she needs to recuse herself before bringing doubt upon the integrity of the court and of the process of the judiciary itself!
We need to raise our voices strongly and in unison right now about this outrageously inappropriate development. Please forward this action alert on to your family and friends today, after you have signed the petition yourself.
Rest assured, we will be pursuing this matter vigorously. We're calling on Congress to hold an investigation of Justice Ginsburg's conduct and to consider legislation to discipline justices who speak out publicly about pending cases.
