Trib: Don’t Vote for Judge Who Answers This Survey

Lord knows the conservative Christians of the Idaho Values Alliance have taken their lumps on this page before, but they deserve a couple of hallelujahs for their latest effort. They sent questionnaires to the 19 candidates itching to replace Idaho Supreme Court Justice Gerald Schroeder if he follows expectations and retires this summer. The group wants to make sure a moral conservative fills the seat, so they asked candidates for positions on everything from polygamy to gun control (because we all know Jesus supports your right to own an assault rifle). Candidates' answers to these questions should come in very handy when making decisions come Election Day. If a candidate responds to the questionnaire, don't vote for him. He has no business serving on the bench. Only a fool or blind ideologue would provide you a detailed outline of his feelings on political and philosophical matters that could come before the court -- Tom Henderson/Lewiston Tribune.
