Phillipino judge loses case

I thought I'd written a post on this topic awhile back, but I can't find it so I'll start with a bit of background: Back in April, a Phillipino judge was fired after it was revealed that he'd be consulting with three mystic dwarves (Armand, Luis, and Angel) who helped him rule on cases. Feeling that he was being persecuted for his beliefs, he did what we'd all expect from Christians those with a severe delusion; he filed a lawsuit.

Unfortunately for him, studies showed that he suffered from a psychosis and his request to be reinstated was denied.

Looks like the Phillipinos got it right: those who rely on mysticism to make decisions in place of logic have no place serving the public. Too bad this policy hasn't been applied to the Bush administration.
