I`ll bet judge Prosser is a "front row" Catholic. He should be removed from the bench if this artical speaks the truth.

Excuse me for trying to understand your point and giving you an opportunity to elaborate. Okay, I'll play:

Because you don't understand why a judge recuses him or herself from a case?

If a judge can't be impartial, the judge is required to recuse him or herself. Judges who don't follow this rule should be removed from the bench, not those who do.
