Paging George L. Metcalfe!!

Hoo-boy, fresh from testifying as a character witness for Hank Adorno, Herald outside counsel Sand "Sandy" Bohrer takes to the Herald editorial page to shoot a Cheney-sized load of buckshot straight into the handsome-but-not-in-that-kind-of-way kisser of none other than our own George L. Metcalfe:

For almost 200 years of our history in many states, marriage was not simply restricted to a man and a woman, but had to be racially pure. If you were white, your spouse had to be white; if you were ``colored,'' your spouse had to be ``colored.'' It became complicated, as who is ``white'' and who is ``colored'' was not so clear, given the number of people whose parents were not racially ``pure.''

Seemingly intelligent people confidently justified these prohibitions, claiming (1) the regulation of marriage is exclusively within the power of the states, and thus immune from attack under the U.S. Constitution, (2) the framers, those white men of the 18th century, several of them slaveholders, never intended for there to be interracial marriage, and (3) it was psychologically and sociologically inappropriate.

Lawyers for Virginia, asking the Supreme Court in 1967 to uphold its prohibition against interracial marriage, pointed to ``scientific opinions'' supporting the ``desirability of preventing such alliances, from the physical, biological, genetic, anthropological, cultural, psychological and sociological point of view.'' They left out religious, but the Virginia trial judge did not: ``Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents.'' And: ``The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix.''

The children, it was feared, would be harmed by all these problems, and by reason of being ``mixed race'' children. How could we inflict such a fate on our children? Certainly they could never succeed in life, such as by becoming president.

The Supreme Court made short work of Virginia's statutes.

Now we debate not interracial marriage, but gay marriage and gay adoption. And we hear the same ``reasons'' we heard before.

Hmm, so you're suggesting those who oppose gay adoption are like those who opposed interracial marriage?

Sandy, are you aware of certain direct quotes from God or the numerous laws prohibiting garments made of mixed animal materials?

I thought not -- I rest my case.

Gee, I wonder if anyone will write a letter about this.

    Re: Statewide Grand Jury Impaneled by Florida Supreme Court on 12/2/09

    Dear Mr. Shepherd and Attorney General McCollum:

    A bit over three years ago, North Miami City Attorney Barry Kutun was convicted of having sex with a minor prostitute. Read all about it at

    Mr. Kutun got a sweetheart deal from The Florida Bar and the Florida Supreme Court, as he is now on the cusp of being readmitted to the practice of law despite his felony convictions.

    This shocking case cuts to the core of how The Bar protects its in crowd even when it comes to sexual exploitation of minors, but goes after a person like me who blew the whistle on the commercial sexual exploitation of minors! Indeed, the Florida Supreme Court convicted me of allegedly falsely asserting that a corporate giant was distributing pornography to children. One month after my disbarment, the federal government entered into a Consent Decree which states that I, “Jack Thompson,” was vindicated in this.

    Whereas Kutun is to be reinstated, the Florida Supreme Court refuses even to address the patent fraud with which I was disbarred.

    This Kutun is just one reason why I and others be heard by the statewide grand jury as to the demonstrable and active corruption of state government by The Florida Bar.

    Moreno is completey out of control. He should be impeached. He is using the local Federal Marshall to intimidate lawyers. He is preventing lawyers from other jurisdictions from brining cell phones into the federal courthouse, but Florida lawyers can. This guy must think the Third Reich was misunderstood.

    So sue me, Fred

    Regards, Jack Thompson

  4. 11:33, it's not God who is being mocked.

  5. 11:51 You better hope not.

  6. Hey 11:33 and 11:51, why are you two fighting? Why not share in praising God for His goodness?

  7. Start with the Doxology, and there are more also:

    "Praise God from Whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost!"


  8. C.S. Lewis said:

    "It is the process of being worshipped that God communicates his presence to men"

  9. H.H. Rowley wrote-
    "The first element in worship is adoration. The Hebrews expressed this by their posture and not alone my their word. For they prostrated themselves before God. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. They did not come
    with an easy familiarity into the presence of God, but were aware of his greatness and majesty, and came with a sense of privilege to His house." H.H. Rowley "Worship in Ancient Israel" p. 257

  10. Pastor Jack Hayford proclaims: "Worship changes the worshiper into the image of the One worshiped"


  12. Better to worship God, than to complain about Metcalfe!

  13. Sandy Bohrer hates censorship!

  14. If there is a God and he doesn't want me to have gay sex or adopt children (not at the same time, obviously) then let him strike me dead now, for I choose not to live in a world where my life and love are not permitted to flourish and be shared.

  15. I'm still here, ergo there is no god, or he/she is down with the gays.

  16. GW, just because you don't believe in God, does not believe that God does not believe in YOU!

  17. GW, God values you and has a plan for you to flourish and prosper, if you simply acknowledge and seek Him.

  18. GW, God loves every gay and lesbian. He seeks their hearts and minds as would a gentle loving father who also has rules. Rules to protect the ones He loves. That's you my friend!

  19. Another thread dead.

    Re: Complete Failure of Florida Supreme Court to Oversee The Florida Bar

    Dear Chief Justices and Associate Justices and Bar President Diner:

    A review of this week’s suspensions and disbarments of Florida Bar members reveals that the Court is irrefutably violating Bar Rules 3-7.7 and 3-7.9 which require that the Supreme Court “shall” review all lawyer sanctions, whether review is sought or not.

    Instead, what we have, the Court’s own site shows, are numerous suspension and disbarment orders signed solely by Supreme Court Clerk Tom Hall, with no mention whatsoever of any Justices or their names on the “orders,” with many of these clerk’s “orders” being entered with no sufficient time for the Justices to have reviewed the record, as required, anyway. See these wholly defective “orders” of this week at

    Further, Rule 3-7.9 also states: “(c) Approval of Consent Judgments. Acceptance of any proposed consent judgment shall be conditioned on final approval by the Supreme Court of Florida, and the court’s order will recite the disciplinary charges against the respondent.”

    These Tom Hall “orders” do NOT “recite the disciplinary charges against the respondent.” They are silent as to the charges. Another breach of Bar Rules by the Court. Why is this important? Because it proves what I have alleged: The Florida Supreme Court disbarred me without reviewing the record, and it dismissed my unopposed, verified motion to vacate that disbarment order for fraud without ever considering it. I have you folks dead to rights on that.

    What we now have is a more general smoking gun that Justices Canady and Polston are absolutely correct: “The Florida Supreme Court has abdicated its duty to oversee The Florida Bar.” While Peggy Quince is off galavanting at the Midyear Bar meeting in Orlando this week, Tom Hall is wearing a dress and pretending he is the Chief Justice. You Justices can’t even find the time to review disbarment orders. Hey, what do you care? It’s not your careers, right?

    Don’t bet on it. See you in court. Gotcha.

    Regards, Jack Thompson

  21. I posted this just now at the Herald site, after Sandy's idiotic op-ed:

    johnbthompson wrote on 01/22/2010 02:32:34 PM:
    I don't know a single Christian who believes that it is morally wrong for whites and blacks to marry. Yet here is Mr. Bohrer stating that being a homosexual is the moral equivalent of being black. No wonder African Americans overwhelmingly oppose gay marriage, as they did recently re the ballot issue in California. It's in large part because of bigoted twits like Bohrer.

    The Bible makes it REALLY clear in both the Old and New Testaments that homosexual acts are sinful and that they are a choice, not a given. So here is Mr. Bohrer, who claims to be a Bible-believing Jew, asserting that God got it wrong and that He is confused about these issues in Holy Scripture.

    The only bigots in this situation are the anti-Christians like Bohrer who stand for nothing, believe in nothing, and yet self-righteously smear anyone who does actually have values.

    But what do you expect from a lawyer who thinks the First Amendment protects the distribution of porn to kids?

  22. GW, maybe you don't know this but the apostle Paul was the original Christian-whacker. He persecuted and murdered early Christians and was greatly feared. He was called to minister to Christians and he gave up his opposition to Christ and became the most eloquent and ardent follower of Christ in the Bible. God used him to save many!

  23. While homosexual acts are definitely a sinful choice and this is clear in the Bible for both Christians and Jews, it's important to love the sinner and hate the sin. Metcalfe is right about opposing gay adoption. Children don't need to be taught that sinful acts are acceptable.

  24. Children need their innocense!

  25. Hey GW, maybe God didn't strike you down because:

    1. He is God and doesn't take orders from men.


    2. God has important plans for you and He finds you necessary and special!

  26. Looks like the Massachusetts effect! Social conservatives are now winning and speaking up.

  27. I also don't know any evangelical "Bible thumping" Christians who have anything but love and grace and mercy for homosexuals. How is it "loving" to pretend that a sinful choice is perfectly ok, when it leads, the Apostle Paul indicates, to eternal separation from God. The loving thing to do is speak God's truth and pray for repentance from the sinner, just as I repented when I became a Christian in 1976.

    If Sandy Bohrer wants to make some sort of sociolological case that gay adoption is a good thing, then let him come forward with the proof. But he has none, which is why he resorts, as he has in the past, to snide comments about people of faith.

    I'll tell you what: I'll drop my opposition to gay adoption if Sandy Bohrer will agree that leftwingnut lawyers will be sterilized ;). Jack Thompson

  33. Now this blog actually has substance!

  34. I cannot reconcile the idea of a benevolent all-powerful being with unmitigated suffering. It is self-contradictory, and too absurd an idea to be taken seriously.

  35. GW, read the Bible and study the character of God. Pay attention to what He values. Pay attention to how He blesses obedience. Pay attention to the patience God has for sinners and the examples of opportunity He gives all of us to grow and how He uses the willing servant to bless others. Two aspects of God which are hard to understand are God's love for each of us. Through Christ He gave His only son to serve as a living sacrifice for each of us. Why?
    Because He is a just God. Sin requires a sacrifice and God's love caused Him to merge His love for us with his just character. It takes time to understand but it's truth.

  36. @10:11

    Thank you, but I have no need for religion. Sanctify yourself.

  37. GW, when you seek truth, it's no longer "religion".

    Immediate News Release – Jan. 23, 2010

    BOMBSHELL: Former Florida Bar Prosecutor Alleges in Federal Lawsuit that The Florida Bar Targets Whistle-Blowing Lawyers Who Sue or Embarrass The Bar

    The Florida Bar

    A pending federal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida sets forth allegations by a former Florida Bar prosecutor that corroborates all that former Miami attorney Jack Thompson has asserted about the illegal actions of The Florida Bar and the systemic bad faith that resulted in his illegal disbarment.

    The former Florida Bar prosecutor alleges in Case No. 08-00308 that The Florida Bar acts in “bad faith” against lawyers that embarrass it, and that his client, “Ms. Brown has every reason to believe she has been impermissibly targeted to be run out of the practice of law …because she previously had the temerity to sue the Bar to try to expose and address this flawed and inequitable system.”

    This shocking lawsuit and the bombshell allegations therein from a former Florida Bar prosecutor breathe fresh life into the various state and federal remedies Jack Thompson is pursuing to set aside his illegal disbarment by The Florida Bar. He was targeted because he blew the whistle not only on two powerful entertainment industry giants, who filed SLAPP bar complaints, but also on The Florida Bar as well in his Tyndale House book, Out of Harm’s Way, which recounts how The Bar tried to end his career back in 1990.

    Thompson’s Bar sanction went from 90 days to permanent disbarment solely because he sued The Bar in federal court for its illegal tactics, such as those visited upon Ms. Brown.

    Contact the once and future lawyer Jack Thompson at and 305-666-4366.

    PS: “The wheels of justice grind slowly but they grind exceedingly fine. The miller is God Almighty!

My Kind of Federal Judge!

Sure we have Scott Rothstein and his lovely Tom James clothier Romina Sifuentes, but Louisiana has ED LA judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.:
A federal judge from Louisiana who had run up big gambling debts routinely solicited money and gifts from lawyers with cases before his court, Congressional investigators said Tuesday as the House opened impeachment hearings in the judge’s case. The judge, G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Federal District Court, had more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos, investigators said. Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”
Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 o…

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
