The Only Good Judges Are In the Book of Judges

Good God. The religious right has gone so far over the edge that the edge is a dot in the distance (ganked from John):

Ominously, Vieira continued by saying his "bottom line" for dealing with the Supreme Court comes from Joseph Stalin. "He had a slogan, and it worked very well for him, whenever he ran into difficulty: 'no man, no problem,' " Vieira said.

The full Stalin quote, for those who don't recognize it, is "Death solves all problems: no man, no problem." Presumably, Vieira had in mind something less extreme than Stalin did and was not actually advocating violence.

Um, yeah. Presumably. [cough]

Not only is this advocating violence, it's hypocrisy on the basest level: a man who is railing about "judicial tyranny" keeping God out of the public square is citing Joseph Fucking Stalin. You'd think a "man of God" would realize that a genocidal oppressor of religious freedoms and civil rights would be the wrong person to turn to for political advice. Then again, that is assuming people like Vieria think independently.
