At the risk of offending my friends of faith I do have to admit that I'm occasionally dumbstruck when I step back and consider that fairly benign observations like the above referenced Sotomayor views are considered "crazy" in that they might inform her judicial philosophy, but the idea that the views of a judge based on the words contained in a 2000-year old book stuffed full of what rational people might consider the stuff of fantasy are somehow beyond reproach when it comes to potentially informing the decisions of such a judge.
It's a weird, weird, world.
