The plaintiff’s bar wants to keep religious people off the jury, because they believe in personal responsibility. Won’t they be in for a surprise, when those legions of highly ethical atheists pop up and throw their nefarious plans to win massive damage awards into disarray.

Somehow, this reminds me of how the courts go into panic mode whenever anyone within a five-mile radius of the courtroom utters the words “jury nullification”.

Isn’t it interesting how the most corrupt institutions in the USA – the courts and Wall Street – always rely on abstract theoretical arguments to justify their existence, while daily behaving in a manner that almost precisely contradicts their justifications.
