Anthony Kennedy…

Chief Justice of the Culture Where Consent is the Sole Criterion of the Good.

Such a culture will end in tyranny, as all tired democracies do. “Marriage” does not mean whatever we say it means. When we make “marriage” mean anything, we make it mean nothing.

    Kennedy’s poorly-reasoned and jurisprudence has been a disaster for the unborn and for traditional marriage advocates. As he is a professed Catholic, his career exhibits grave scandal.

    That said, I thought it was a shame that the linked article, in a Catholic magazine, approvingly quoted Rosen’s potshot at Kennedy in “The New Republic” as being marked as some sort of dysfunctional introvert just because he reads a lot of fiction. Since at least Aristotle, the Western humanistic tradition has always taught that fiction can be an ennobling, “liberal” art. There is no reason to abandon the inspiring Catholic tradition of esteem for fiction (e.g., that of Catholics like Dante, Shakespeare, Chesterton, Tolkien, and Flannery O’Connor) just to get a pointless dig in at a bad judge.
