  • The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.
  • But the First Amendment protects against the Government; it does not leave us at the mercy of noblesse oblige. We would not uphold an unconstitutional statute merely because the Government promised to use it responsibly.

  • Five lawyers have closed the debate and enacted their own vision of marriage as a matter of constitutional law... Just who do we think we are?

Quotes about RobertsEdit

  • Either he is a liar or he is too naïve to hold any important job including, and especially, this one. This is like a legal ruling written by the little mermaid.
