The SCOTUS has been a divisive force in this country for decades.
#1 --- The 1963 decision to neuter local school districts and remove voluntary prayer in public schools was the first shot across the bow.
#2 --- The 1973 decision that gave us abortion on demand was a declaration of war that started the current culture war.
#3 --- The 2013 decision that denied the rights of Californians to change their own state constitution may be the most divisive decision in the history of the SCOTUS.
This court should be embarrassed. Unfortunately, the only members of the court that ARE embarrassed wrote the minority decision on #3. The majority in that case is not embarrassed because they have no shame (and no morals).
