Denizens, I think I may be coming around on Harriet Miers.

I mean if these assclowns are good enough for the Kansas Not-So Supreme Excuse-For-A Court, then Miers must not be such a bad nominee – right?

The Kansas Supreme Court on Friday unanimously struck down a state law that punished underage sex more severely if it involved homosexual acts, saying “moral disapproval” of such conduct is not enough to justify the different treatment.

And why the Hell™ not?  Are these fucksticks on the so-called “high court” of Kansas trying to revive the long-since-debunked meme that “you can’t legislate morality”?  Are they now going to invalidate every fucking law on the books, because they pretty much all involve “moral disapproval” of some kind or other?

In a case closely watched by national groups on all sides of the gay rights debate, the high court said the law “suggests animus toward teenagers who engage in homosexual sex.”

As bloody well it should.  We are, after all, talking about an act of perversion against another human being.

Gay rights groups praised the ruling, while conservatives bitterly complained that the court intruded on the Legislature’s authority to make the laws.

And the conservatives are right.  Again.  It’s yet another case of half-assed, black-robed tyrants attempting to impose their beliefs on a public that doesn’t want to see them imposed.  Another case of tin-horned bench despots telling us what we can and can’t do.

The case involved an 18-year-old heterophobe man, Matthew R. Limon, who was found guilty in 2000 of performing a sex act on a 14-year-old boy and was sentenced to 17 years in prison. Had one of them been a girl, state law would have dictated a maximum sentence of 15 months.

Pardon me for asking this, but isn’t the Catholic Church still  reeling from a scandal involving this very thing – heterophobic sex acts perpetrated on underage boys?  And wasn’t the general consensus that priests who either admitted to or were caught diddling with said underage boys either be strung up or locked away for an hellaciously looooooong  time?

And all a bunch of limp-wristed Kansas bench jockeys wanna do is give the Rump Ranger First Class™ perp 15 months?

The high court ordered that Limon be resentenced as if the law treated illegal gay sex and illegal straight sex the same. He has already served more than five years.

And this shitheel is still alive after all that time?  The Kansas prison population had five years to make him their bitch and didn’t?  Gee – they must be slipping.

Limon’s lawyer, James Esseks of the American Civil Liberties Union’s

Memo to Dr. Herbie “Butt-Plug” Gamiscunt:  Bet you’re reeeeeeeal proud of the pro-NAMBLA tendencies of your honeyboys at the Assbanging Cocksuckers Liberties Union now, aren’t you?

Lesbian and Gay Rights Project, said: “We are very happy that Matthew will thoon be getting out of prithon. We are thorry there ith no way to make up for the extra four yearth he thpent in prithon thimply becauthe he ith gay.”

Why don’t you just admit that you missed having one of your butt buddies around and be done with it, Jamie-poo?  I mean, those conjugal visits at the prison were  starting to be kind of a pain, weren’t they?

Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline said in a statement that he does not plan to appeal.

A spineless, cowardly act that should  – if Kansans are worth their salt at all – cost him his job come the next election cycle.

A lower court had ruled that the state could justify the harsher punishment as a way of protecting children’s traditional development, fighting disease or strengthening traditional values. But the Supreme Court said the law was too broad to meet those goals.

“The statute inflicts immediate, continuing and real injuries that outrun and belie any legitimate justification that may be claimed for it,” Justice Marla Luckert wrote for the court. “Moral disapproval of a group cannot be a legitimate state interest.”

“Unless that group happens to be white heterosexual Christian males – then it’s open season on ‘em, bag limit four”.  Right, Marla, you Cupid Stunt™?

Ropes, trees, Kansas Soprano Court.

Some assembly…well, you know the drill.

    If those idiots weren’t complete hypocrites, they’d strike down all the “hate crime” laws for the same reason.

    Un-friggin-believable

    Of course, I’d make pedophilia a capital crime and not worry what the perverts “preferences” were but what do I know, I’m just some “hate filled” conservative….
