Yes, there must be in­ves­ti­ga­tions and res­ig­na­tions of gov­ern­ment lead­ers who sex­u­ally abusey­oung­pa­gesintheU.S.Se­nate­andHouse, andyes,any­child­abuse­o­fanykind­byany­gov­ern­ment leader should be in­ves­ti­gated, all the way­to­thetop—per­hap­s­thetop­be­ing­five­ofthe nine cur­rent Supreme Court jus­tices.

Jus­tices Steven G. Breyer, Ruth Bader Gins­berg,An­tho­nyM.Kennedy,DavidH.Souterand John Paul Stevens might face con­gres­sional in­quiries con­cern­ing a num­ber of un­usual chil­drelated rul­ings. The five black-robed lead­ers might­beasked­whattheir­in­tent­waswhen­they re­cently struck down the Texas sodomy law, es­tab­lish­ing same-sex mar­riage, de­priv­ing chil­dren of both a fa­ther and a mother, and in­cit­ing child preda­tors to sodom­ize and rape tots and teens. The five would pos­si­bly be asked if they were aware that the sole pur­pose of ed­u­ca­tion, es­tab­lished­bythewrit­er­soft­heCon­sti­tu­tion,was toteachChris­tian­ity,andthattheU.S.pop­u­la­tion then, as now, was ma­jor­ity Chris­tian, with “ma­jor­ity rule” Chris­tian schools.

Since the five jus­tices changed the 200-yearold school tra­di­tion, they might be asked if their un­prece­dented rul­ings against school Bibles, prayerandtheTenCom­mand­mentswere­actu- ally in­tended to cast the ma­jor­ity of Amer­i­can chil­dren into Hell, or were they in­tend­ing only to con­fuse, em­bar­rass and ridicule Amer­ica’s ma­jor­ity chil­dren in front of the whole world.

In­ves­ti­ga­torsmightques­tion­the­ma­jor­i­ty­five about abor­tion, top-of-the-line child abuse, a mur­der plan that lures teenage girls into fright­en­ing sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dures, im­pos­ing life­long psy­cho­log­i­cal trauma on the young moth­ers — a plan that in­flicts im­mea­sur­able pain on a tiny vic­tim rest­ing safely in its mother’s womb — a plan that ends with the death of a child.

The­five­jus­ticesmight­beasked­just­when­did they first know that our na­tion’s child pornog­ra­phyin­dus­tryrapedand­sodom­izedlit­tlechil­dren in­frontof­cam­eras­fortele­vi­sion,mag­a­zi­ne­sand the In­ter­net, and ex­actly what was their in­tent when they re­cently handed down a rul­ing for child pornog­ra­phy car­toons.
