The Supreme Court is not accountable to public opinion. But to give you an idea of how this institution crammed with conservatives, minority parties and religious extremists really is, consider this week’s major case, Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, on whether taxpayer-funded adoption and foster care agencies should be able to discriminate against expectant parents.
A poll released last week shows that 70% of Americans say no. Of course, taxpayer money should not be given to discriminatory organizations, regardless of the religious affiliations of those organizations. If you take government money, you should play by the same rules as everyone else.
And yet I’ll eat a bug if the Supreme Court agrees.
