Harriet Miers nomination to the Supreme Court has certainly elicited a firestorm of opinion – on both sides of the isle. Let us remember this about the Supreme Court of the U.S.A.
They can’t stop a hurricane
They’re helpless against the earthquake
All members of SCOTUS are stained by sin
They are without answers against the ravages of aging
They will be largely forgotten within 5 years of their death
The longevity of this nation is dependent upon God, not them.
Other than that; they’re quite important.
