Clearly only fungi can judge this case.

Many species of fungi reproduce asexually, always or sometimes.

"Can a judge be biased because she is straight?"

Ridiculous.

Sure - if judges can be biased by being heterosexual.

Centuries of judges were biased because they were straight. Now the shoe is on the other foot.

Judges should only be biased towards big money.

Each & ever judge is biased on any number of issues. And that is not an issue. The issue becomes can that judge put aside their biases, and fairly decide the case before them?

I for one certainly dont see a problem with judges from any orientation. Actually, I think this "gay judge" thing is absurd coming from a party that backs corrupt judges, and a bias in favor of corporations, and not people.

Only gay, minority or women judges' impartiality should ever be called into question. Lord knows, white male judges have historically been impartial and fair.......I mean, it's a presumption, for goodness sake.....

Actually, historically, white male judges haven't *always* been DB's, and have even *sometimes* managed to be impartial and fiar... Brown vs. the Board of Education, for example, was decided (presumably correctly) by 9 white guys... and for that matter, Justice Thomas is as impartial and unfair as any white guy has ever been...

But exceptions such as these are few and far between, and there aren't near enough of them to disprove your point... and by the way, your micro-bio is awesome. :D

Using the logic of Protect marriage, no human could ever hear a case involving humans.

Sure, a judge can be biased because he's gay. But so can a straight judge when embracing the protect marriage pov. There is no basis for dismissal here.

If a judge can be accused of being biased because he is gay, then that blows away 100.0% of George W. Bush's appointees.

They either belonged to, or were recommended by, the far-right Federalist Society -- a group with a *corrosive* pro-government, anti-individual-liberty bias, ergo, an anti-Bill of Rights bias.

And no family court judge can have children. This is ludicrous. But many folks feel that a gay or lesbian person is only that...gay or lesbian. They can't see them as parents, workers, teachers, etc etc.

We are not there yet and the judge needs to be dismissed. For gays it is a religion now and that will interfere with the law

Oh, I'm going to regret asking this, I just know it, but what EXACTLY does "For gays it is a religion now and that will interfere with the law" MEAN?

It is not legal to marry the same sex yet. I am sure it will be. There is an upswelling for gays to be married so they can justify their sexual preferences. Read the news ! Marriage for gays is in it every day. Therefore the judge would be biased at least at this point in time. I am sure that we will all be gay one day especially with he rise of Alpha females. The men don't have any need for women any more. Gays are making a mistake being married ...no need for it. No need for heterosexuals for that matter. However, it is the law as of now
