Once it would have been masons, now it's fellow sky-pixie believers :angry:

But it's okay as long as she's mindful of how she expresses herself in future...

All judges must, of course, be very mindful of how they express themselves when dealing with sensitive issues of equality and diversity so as not to create the impression that some individuals can expect more leniency than others."

The impression is what counts, you see.

The very fact that she is a 'very devout Roman Catholic' makes her sanity questionable, IMO.

This story has a good side.

Not what she did: that's the classic us-and-them of the Blair anti-enlightenment era. But the fact that now, after Blair, it's attracted negative comment. The descent into theocracy has got legs, with Blair's legacy of giving schools to the Taliban and linking funding to religious fervour. But he's gone, and the enlightenment still has defenders.

As for bent judges, there's always innocent until proven broke. Even if a jury inexplicably convicts, you can take it to appeal and dispense with that nonsense (example). Though I believe there's a lot more of it in the civil courts, where judges can work for their mates out of the glare of meeja attention.

Bottom line: power corrupts (and its corollary). You can convict a bent copper or politician, or even a bent civil servant. But a judge is above the law, and "contempt of court" says you can be locked up for questioning their decisions.
