If Only We Could Get Judges Like This

John Roberts' nomination to chief Justice of the US Supreme Court has been surrounded by a firestorm of opinion.

Al Mohler comments on the conflicting perspectives on the role of the judiciary presented by Roberts and Ted Kennedy.

Roberts' view emphasizes an impartial and 'humbler' approach for the judiciary, whereas Kennedy sees the judiciary as an organ for his view of 'progress' and its ideals.

How activist should a judge be? Think about the refereeing in the next hockey game you attend, and see what you conclude.
