The Anti-Christian Lunatics Union once again succeeds in distorting the Establishment Clause; this time for the purpose of telling kids they should have as much sex outside of marriage as possible.

Accused murderer demands to see child porn in exchange for confession. I'm guessing if it were up to the ACLU, this sick son of a &*@! would get his wish.
A case of "You can't legally dissolve what doesn't (and shouldn't) exist."

Link to news story on a "gay" couple trying to get a divorce.

Preeminent Establishment Clause distorters The Anti-Christian Lunatics Union (ACLU) wins in getting a cross removed from the Mojave National Preserve.
Ailing obese man files a lawsuit against the fast food industry claiming they made him an addict to their products. In light of the amount of money people have gotten from the tobacco cases, this story is hardly a surprise. I'm trying to see if it might be possible to use the tobacco cases to sue the porn industry.

The Dems are back in "Bork" mode for the judicial hearings of Priscilla Owens.

"At yesterday's hearing, liberal senators pressed Owen on abortion, on advocacy in decisions, and on allowing personal beliefs to sway decisions. 'I am deeply concerned,' Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California told Owen. 'You've looked in other places to find a rationale not to do what Texas law called for.'"

I'm not certain about the context, but I'm assuming mafiosa princess DiFi is referring to the fact that Justice Owen has rarely voted for allowing a female minor to legally bypass notifying her parents before getting an abortion. The thing of it is, Texas law does not require judges to grant female minors a notice bypass under all circumstances (indeed, the law requires that minors be fully informed of abortion alternatives, which Justice Owens found did not always occur). By her line of questioning, you can pretty much count on Senator "I don't want people to own handguns, but I carry one in my handbag" Feinstein not to vote for confirming Justice Owens. (As a side note, a relative of mine once mooned Feinstein when she was mayor of San Francisco).
Borrowing from Kathy Shaidle, from the Thank God I Don't Live in New York file:

The Bush v. Gore presidential election case is an example of a hypocritical Supreme Court majority that broadens the rights of states only when it serves conservative ends, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday.

What other evidence does one need to show that Hillary is nothing but a pro-centralized government communist?
An appeal has been made to the Supreme Court to challenge the constitutionality of Texas'anti-homosexual acts law. If the case is accepted, the Court will revisit its 1986 decision in Bowers v. Hardwick, which upheld the constitutionality of Georgia's anti-sodomy law.

My hope is that the Court will deny review of the case and simply maintain the status quo regarding the right of states to determine which immoral and disordered acts will be deemed illegal. Long live the 10th Amendment!

Mmmm. This cake recipe looks pretty good. I wish I had the time and utensils to make it.
An organization called Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays (PFOX) has filed a lawsuit against the National Education Association for sexual-orientation based discrimination (i.e., discrimination against people who are heterosexual). Although I support the general purpose of PFOX, I'm not so sure this lawsuit is a good thing, if only because it appears to further the treatment of sexual desire as the legal equivalent of race and ethnicity.
The legal and cultural assault on marriages (and morality) moves to Indiana and Washinton, D.C.

Nice little mention of U.S. Senator Sam Brownback's Catholic conversion (you'll need to scroll down). Brownback's sponsor was Senator Rick Santorum, who took an opportunity to rip American cultural liberalism for The Problem.
China continues in its persecution of the Church: "detains" one nun and several children attending a religious class.
