So what if he is?  Does it matter?  Of course not, but some digging has been done in Chief U.S. Judge Vaughn Walker's past by gay-bashing people.  The San Francisco Chronicle has run an article questioning the judge's sexual orientation and some sources say that Walker's membership in a powerful men-only club that once denied membership to blacks is further proof of him being gay.  Walker has also ruled in favor of gays on several lawsuits, and this is stoking the fires of tose who opposed gay marriage. and they are saying that he shouldn't be allowed to rule on gay issues.  If we take this into consideration, then should we also ban female judges from ruling in abortion cases?  Maybe we should also ban Latino or black judges from making rulings in cases involving minorities.  What rubbish!
