The audacity of those terrorists in black robes never ceases to amaze Sister Nancy Beth. I am glad to know I am not alone. Today I read (via Agape Press) that Concerned Person for America, Bob Knight, shares my contempt for their judicial overreach:
The Kansas Supreme Court recently ruled unanimously that the State must impose the same penalties for statutory rape regardless of whether the sex was heterosexual or homosexual. Writing for the court, Justice Marla Luckert stated, "The moral disapproval of a group cannot be a legitimate state interest."The Kansas Supreme Court's ability to interpret Kansas state law is nothing short of a judicial coup d'etat. I can only hope that the supreme court of one of Kansas' neighboring states determines that this statute is in fact constitutional, so the rule of law can once again be restored.
However, the director of the Culture and Family Institute (CFI), Bob Knight, feels the ruling is a classic example of what he calls "group identity politics." Moreover, he says the decision "runs roughshod" over the rights of a state to determine its own moral climate.
