First Alito reads the majority opinion, then Sotomayor the dissent, mentioning that being drawn and quartered, or burned at the stake, should now be OK, then Breyer reads a dissent saying the death penalty itself may be unconstitutional, then Scalia oddly speaks up, with " some things to say about the dissents."    Interesting stuff, stay tuned.

Interesting how many Christians are atwitter over gay marriage, but are perfectly okay with the death penalty.  I think all Christians should have "WWJD?" tattooed on their wrists in big bold letters.
There is no opinion so absurd that a preacher could not express it.

What's true is already so. Owning up to it does not make it worse.

Him and Alito and Thomas. Roberts and Kennedy are tolerable.

I only have a filter for people who do not consistently beg to be belittled, ridiculed, insulted, and demeaned.

I may believe people, as a whole, should be treated fairly but I also believe those same people are idiots.
