Imagine you are in court getting divorced. You may be angry, relieved, or bereft of hope. Nevertheless, you expect fair treatment.
It happens that you are married to a judge.
Wait — the judge hearing your case is your spouse?
Now the judge has ruled in her own favor on their own, personal case. Is this justice? Who cares?
Think about that for a minute. This happened when S.C. State Supreme Court Justice Kaye Hearn ruled in a case despite her membership in the activist Episcopal Forum, and even though it directly involved her own church and disregarded established precedent of the S.C. Supreme Court.
When my wife and I formally complained in writing to the committee on Judicial Conduct on Sept. 28, 2015 about the conflict of interest in accordance with Canons 2 and 3 of the South Carolina Code of Judicial Ethics, we were told this was not a problem.
Now that she has ruled, it is a problem on display for all.
When you love God, you love justice. Blessed are those who are persecuted for his sake.
