Reactions to yesterday's SCOTUS rulings

I have spent most of this morning reading the various reactions to the Supreme Court's decisions announced yesterday. One of my favorites is from Alabama Supreme Court Justice Tom Parker, a Vanderbilt Law alum:

"Today's U.S. Supreme Court ruling against the public display of the Ten Commandments in a Kentucky courthouse is merely the latest example of judicial disregard of the rule of law in favor of what Justice Scalia today called the 'personal preferences' of the 'dictatorship' of a shifting Court majority. By advancing what Justice Thomas called their "judicial predilections" over the text and history of the Constitution, politically motivated majorities of the court have undermined the integrity of the judiciary and thereby the foundations of our country. This is an ominous development, for 'If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?' [Psalm 11:3]"

My answer would be to stay strong, stay diligent, and keep on hitting your knees.
