State judges banned from belonging to clubs that discriminate? And that's "so much for freedom of choice"?

Political correctness? I am sure your sort would have said the same thing when they were trying to integrate U of Mississippi. The very same language was used.

This was for JUDGES. Sorry, but I don't want ANY judge to belong to ANY organization that discriminates, and you shouldn't either, if you understand history at all. Doesn't matter whether you agree- discrimination is discrimination, and as Americans we should be better than that, if we are all so keen on constantly waving our flag saying we are the best in the world.

Atticus would have had it rough if he had to face a Klan judge. Maybe we should try to avoid that sort of scenario.

People discriminate all the time, it's just more encompassing than your notion of the term.

Do bankers discriminate against people who can't save for a down payment on a home? Absolutely.
Do landlords discriminate against people who don't pay their bills and have poor credit scores? For good reason.
Do employers discriminate against people who don't have qualifications to do the job? Every day.
Do restaurants discriminate against people who aren't wearing shirts or shoes? OH NOES! Discrimination everywhere!

These are fairly rational decisions. What is not rational is declaring individuals or entire identifiable populations as inferior to others, where there is no evidence to support such a conclusion.
But if you have a deep, burning desire to promote discrimination, be our guest. In between your time better spent on Stormfront.

My sort? How droll. I think there's a fine like between discrimination and forced association. But that might be difficult for you to comprehend. As for the Ole Miss comment, nice try. You're wrong. Cheap shots usually are.
