Moral Order is what the Court Orders

This post is my reaction to an article recently written by Robert Bork found at http://www.opinionjournal.com/extra/?id=110006940

Or, if you don't have time to read it, here is an excerpt in which Bork basically summarizes what the article is about.
"Once the justices depart, as most of them have, from the original understanding of the principles of the Constitution, they lack any guidance other than their own attempts at moral philosophy, a task for which they have not even minimal skills. Yet when it rules in the name of the Constitution, whether it rules truly or not, the court is the most powerful branch of government in domestic policy. The combination of absolute power, disdain for the historic Constitution, and philosophical incompetence is lethal."

It is amazing how trashed our justices have become. Supreme Court Justice Scalia, perhaps the most "in tune" with the writings of the US Constitution, is considered by many to be a radical right-wing republican that they want off of the Supreme Court ASAP. Unlike many of the current judges, I think Scalia actually knows what the word "morals" really means.

The almost complete disregard for the US Constitution, which stood for the moral order, is a real problem that continues to grow.
