What they mean by "activist judges" on "Just Us" Sunday
via Corrente : " I'd always wondered what an "activist judge" was, aside from a winger hate figure, but fortunately now I know: At the rally Sunday, Mike Miller, 54, of Gallatin echoed many of the speakers comments on judicial power, saying he believes Supreme Court justices try to create laws with their rulings instead of interpreting the Constitution.

''Activist justices -- we're trying to find out what we can do to stop that activity,'' he said. ''Our laws are based on the Ten Commandments.''
(via Times)

So, any judge who believes (as the Framers most assuredly did) in the separation of church and state is an activist judge. And there you have it. These guys really want a theocracy, and won't stop until they get one. Yech."
