Irony: those moralless courts

"Today's ruling further confirms that the judicial branch of our government is nearly bereft of any moral foundation," said Tom Minnery, Focus on the Family's's vice president for government and public policy.
This quote wasn't on Terry Schiavo, but rather on a Colorado court case in which the judge decided that the death penalty could not be used after jurors used the Bible (rather than, ya know, THE LAW) to decide whether to give the death penalty or not (despite, ya know, the whole "eye for an eye" thing being a supposed vestige of Judaic law supposedly fulfilled by Jesus Christ, who pined for people to turn the cheek instead...)

Yup, a court that does whatever it can to avoid giving the death penalty is totally bereft of moral foundation. Right.
