One for the Team

Judge John E. Jones III has been speaking out about his experiences after the Kitzmiller decision:
"Because I was a Republican judge appointed by a Republican president, I was supposed to throw one for the home team. What was lost was the role of precedent and the rule of law. My job was to find the facts and apply the law - nothing more, nothing less [...] If the majority thinks we should teach creationism in schools, does that mean judges are supposed to go with the flow?"
For his courage and integrity, Judge Jones got death threats, and was called a "fascist" by none other than Bill O'Reilly!
