Only in California...

The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals, based in San Francisco (where else?) is the most overturned court in the nation, by the US Supreme Court. This court is jokingly referred to as the 9th Circus, and is well known for being the role model of "judicial activism." Decisions include allowing the censorship of the words "natural family," "marriage" and "family values" as hate speech, threatening public display of the Ten Commandments, allowing liberal usage of "medical marijuana" (no solid medical evidence supporting this) in defiance of Federal authority, banning the words "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, allowing sexually explicity surveys of elementary school children, allowing assisted suicide in Oregon, outlawing homeschooling, and upholding all sorts of gay "rights."

And now an interesting story has come out about the chief justice of that court:,2933,365701,00.html

While overseeing a case against a pornography distributor, it was discovered that the judge's own website contained obscene material. Well, "obscene" is relative, of course. You be the judge...

"Kozinski, 57, told the Times he thought the material, which included a video of a man cavorting with a sexually aroused farm animal and a picture of nude women on all fours painted to look like cows, couldn't be seen by the public. The judge said he didn't believe any of the images were obscene, the Times reported.
"Is it prurient? I don't know what to tell you," he told the newspaper. "I think it's odd and interesting. It's part of life."
The Times also described a wide range of other types of sexual imagery."

Wow. Just... wow. I know that relativism is in, but COME ON, PEOPLE! Bestiality is a perversion, it is NOT "odd and interesting". Can you say slippery slope?
