In yet another glaring example of why some black robes ought to come equipped with the logo of a well-known retail chain, a tin-horned bench jockey has infringed upon the free-speech rights of a school board.
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – In one of the biggest courtroom clashes between faith and evolution since the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial, a federal judge barred a Pennsylvania public school district Tuesday from teaching “intelligent design” in biology class, saying the concept is creationism in disguise.
And who would know better about disguises than a black-robed tyrant pretending to be a fair-minded, knowledgeable-in-the-law judge, hm?
U.S. District Judge John Jones delivered a stinging attack on the Dover Area School Board, saying its first-in-the-nation decision in October 2004 to insert intelligent design into the science curriculum violated the constitutional separation of church and state.
See what I mean?  Once again a fuckwitted excuse-for-a-jurist shows his ass and demonstrates his abject cluelessness when it comes to the Constitution.
For the 18,473,903rd time:  The words separation of church and state do not appear anywhere in the United States Constitution.
Learn it, live it, love it.  Especially you, John-boy Jones, you shit-for-brains.
The ruling by Judge Jones, a Republican
Don’t you morons at the Asphyxiated Piss mean “a RINO”?  Oh, that’s right – you only point that out when it suits your  twisted purposes, don’t you?
This Wapner-wannabe is no more of a Republican than San Fran Nan, Dingy Harry or Senator (hic!).  Actually, you Demoscum can have him – he fits right in with your philosophy of ignoring the Constitution when it suits you.
and a churchgoer
What “church” would that be?  The Unitarian Universalists?  I can almost guaran-fuckin’-tee you that this assclown doesn’t go to a church that preaches Christ crucified.
appointed to the federal bench three years ago by President Bush, was a major setback to the intelligent design movement, which is waging battles in Georgia and Kansas.
Which is just one more reason no one named Bush should be making judicial appointments.  First Souter by his father, then Roberts, then Miers, then Alito – and who knows how  many of our rights are going to be destroyed by the Bush Bench Bozos™?
But that’s not the most egregious thing about this whole judicial charade.  This sorry-assed excuse-for-a-judge, rather than rule on what he perceived to be the facts surrounding the case, end of story…this asshole actually accuses the defendants of lying and then goes on to fawn all over the failed theory  of Darwinism.
Judge Jones decried the “breathtaking inanity” of the Dover policy and accused several board members of lying to conceal their true motive, which he said was to promote religion.
A six-week trial yielded “overwhelming evidence” establishing that intelligent design “is a religious view, a mere re-labeling of creationism, and not a scientific theory,” Judge Jones said.
Oh, yeah.  “Overwhelming evidence”.  “Your Honor, we’re the One True Way man got to be here, even though we can’t prove we evolved from monkeys, so please help us make sure that no one can question our belief system!!!  WAAAAAAAAH!!!”
The policy required students to hear a statement about intelligent design before ninth-grade lessons on evolution. The statement said Darwin’s theory is “not a fact” and has inexplicable “gaps.” It referred students to an intelligent-design textbook, Of Pandas and People.
But the judge said: “We find that the secular purposes claimed by the board amount to a pretext for the board’s real purpose, which was to promote religion in the public school classroom.”
So suddenly, this smarmy little high-horsed pisspot has decided that truth – namely, the fact that evolution is nothing but an unproven theory – is unconstitutional.
What truth will you next ban, John-Boy?  George Washington as the father of our country? The fact that a Republican freed the slaves?  The Japanese attacking us at Pearl Harbor?  Der Kaiser diddling an intern?  What is too inappropriate for young skulls full o’ much to hear?
In his ruling, Judge Jones said that while intelligent design, or ID, arguments “may be true, a proposition on which the court takes no position, ID is not science.” Among other things, the judge said intelligent design “violates the centuries-old ground rules of science by invoking and permitting supernatural causation,” it relies on “flawed and illogical” arguments; and its attacks on evolution “have been refuted by the scientific community.”
Oh, really???  When, pray tell?  Please, show us the “evidence” that proves evolution?  Show us these so-called “refutations” of the scientific community.  I dare you.
“The students, parents, and teachers of the Dover Area School District deserved better than to be dragged into this legal maelstrom, with its resulting utter waste of monetary and personal resources,” the judge wrote.
The Dover school board deserved better than to have a biased pissweasel hearing their case, having already made up his mind about it.
He also said: “It is ironic that several of these individuals, who so staunchly and proudly touted their religious convictions in public, would time and again lie to cover their tracks and disguise the real purpose behind the ID Policy.”
If I were the defendants, I’d now hire another attorney and go after this bastard Jones for everything he’s got.  That black robe doesn’t preclude the bastard from libel, and that’s just what he’s committed against the Dover plaintiffs.
That is, assuming that I were interested in allowing him to continue living.  Shitheads like John Jones deserve nothing less than to be swinging from lamposts.
ESAD, Jones, you fucking snotwit.
