Yet another example of spin/dishonesty

Tilting at windmills here, of course. Heard on the newsradio today about the California Supreme Court overturning the California ban on same-sex marriages. The expected voices were there, including some guy from (something like) the "Institute of Freedom" who said (something like) "this is just another example of activist judges making law from the bench. Leave the lawmaking to the lawmakers and stick to being judges!"

Except that's exactly what happened: the lawmakers made a law, and the judges judged it. That's how it's supposed to work.

Of all the dangerous things people do and say these days, in my opinion, this meme of distrust in the judicial system spouted off by the right-wingers might be the most dangerous.
