I don't blame them fro removing the queer. People with mental problems shouldn't be allowed on a jury.

Why is it so hard to imagine? Queers are mentally unstable and emotionally unbalanced. Not the kind of people you want on a jury.

This doesn't surprise me.

Back in the 90's I had a job at the National Center for the Blind in Baltimore. I remember being told how blind people were excluded.

Funny you bring that up. It's one of the arguments against having them that the judge rejected.

Do we want Christians on the jury who believe it is OK for a father to molest his daughter as long as he marries her first?
