In 1857, Supreme Court Chief Justice, Roger B. Taney, wrote that all black people are:
"beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations, and so far inferior that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect."
The case was (Dred) Scott v. Sandford. And the court's decision (7-2) was supposed to be the last word on the slavery question. The court had spoken. One race could own another.
Thank God we had lawmakers and civic leaders back then that didn't say what some of your are saying:
And P.S. If you believe (as some of you are also saying) that you cannot let your religious (Catholic) views influence your civic decisions, then STOP using Catholic events (funerals, etc.) to campaign."The courts have already made a ruling on this issue and we can't pick and choose when to follow the orders of the court, so let's comply and get back to work." - Senator Michael San Nicholas.
