What Would Roberts Do?

So after yesterday's post, I got to thinking about Roberts again today.

I'm really, really curious as to how he would vote on a gay issue when one comes before the Supremes, as I really do believe that he is a closet homosexual.

I can only imagine what must be going through his head at every step in the decision making process - "if I do this, then people might guess my secret, so I guess I better do this instead". The longer he stays in the closet, the greater the number of his decisions that will be tainted by this thought process, and the greater the long term harm to our society.

What we need now is for a gay rights case to come before the Supreme Court to flush him out of the closet and get it over with, so that he can start making sound decisions with the interest of the public in mind. A case involving a monogamous gay couple that had been living together for 30 years and of which one party suddenly fell into a permanent vegetative state* would be ideal, as it would get lots of publicity from both the Jesus Freaks and the rational people.

The other thing to consider is that it would be better to get this kind of case tried before Alito shows up on the court, since it is becoming apparent that the Democrats in the Senate don't have the balls to try to filibuster him.

* note that in no way do I wish death or a coma onto anyone
