Pray for Supreme Court Justice Roberts

Chief Justice John RobertsThis breaks my heart:

Doctors who examined the stricken Chief Justice John Roberts called the episode at his Maine vacation home a “benign idiopathic seizure,” meaning they found no tumor, stroke or any other explanation.

Roberts, 52, had a similar, unexplained attack in 1993.

The seizure Monday caused the chief justice to fall on a dock, where he sustained minor scrapes, Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said.

She said he was kept overnight at the Penobscot Bay Medical Center in Rockport for observation.

By definition, someone who has had more than one seizure without any other cause is determined to have epilepsy, said Dr. Marc Schlosberg, a Washington Hospital Center neurologist who is not involved in the Roberts case.

Whether Roberts will need anti-seizure medications to prevent another is something he and his doctor will have to decide. But after two seizures, the likelihood of another at some point is greater than 60 percent.

Roberts is a fine man, and one of the greatest jurists of our time. Our prayers and our hopes go out to him and his family in this difficult and troubling time.

Unfortunately, I notice the moonbat media does not agree. They explicitly refer to Roberts as an “idiopath”, proving once and for all that those shameless prostitutes will exploit any tragedy or personal misfortune to stick a knife into the Republican Party’s back. These people have no shame, and are in league with abortionists, terrorists, and the unspeakably racist Darwinists and Heliocentrists. The only fitting retort to their slanders is to ignore them, which I shall now proceed to do.

Update (by Psycheout): Your prayers have worked!

Chief Justice John Roberts walked out of a hospital in Maine Tuesday, released a day after he suffered a seizure. The White House said he told President Bush he was doing fine.

Well done, everybody!


  1. Dear Sisyphus,

    I happened to peek at my email this morning right after you posted it and immediately sent a group cell announcement to everyone in my Sunday school class and to everyone in the Monnie Willis Prayer Warriors. We are covering the honorable John Roberts with the Blood of the Lamb through our prayers for immediate healing.

  2. “Idiopath?” Wow, the LLL MSM doesn’t even try to conceal its contempt anymore.

    My prayers are with our great Chief Justice. Our prayers got him onto the Supreme Court. Our prayers will make him healthy again. There’s much to do to undo decades of liberal activist judges (black-robed tyrants).

    Man, we better take this guy off all those evil hospital machines and hook him up to a PRAYER iv.

  4. … do any of you know what “idiopathic” means? The very fact that you say that the report insulted him by calling him an “idiopath” shows how ready you are to jump to comclusions.

    Idiopathic simply means arising spontaneously, or of an unknown cause. His sickness is idiopathic. Nobody ever called him an “idiopath”, whatever that’s supposed to mean.

  5. Ummm … you say heliocentrism as though that were some kind of bad thing … are we really going to be fighting to prove that the earth is flat and the sun revolves around it all over again? ‘Cause that kind of thing, taking place over these here satellite-technology-based internets, is maybe not such a good thing for credibility. Seeing as how the signal that is bringing these words to me, and the signal that is bringing my reply back to you, is being bounced off a satellite in geostationary orbit over our heads.

    Or it could be bounced off Apollo’s chariot as he rides through the sky … ooops. Wrong cosmology there.

    You might wanna re-think that whole line of debate.

  6. Careful, Galileo. These are the type of guys who would have locked you in a tower for so-and-so number of years for saying that.

    No, we’re not fighting over it. We’ve already proven it, on this very blog. Heliocentrism is an atheist doctrine. You, of all people, should know that, Mr. Galilei.

  8. You’ve proven nothing. The verses you quote on that topic in the Bible are “taken out of context.” You were making a literal translation of a book (the Bible) that is famous for symbolism and metaphoric speech (I know, I’ve only said that seven times) and therefore, does nothing for you. The “four corners of the Earth” is a famous expression (not literal). “above the circle of the Earth” in that a sphere is a circular figure, and the people are described as grasshoppers in that verse as well if I do recall correctly…and people are in no way grasshoppers, so how can the verse be taken literally? Otherwise by that logic we should all be hopping around, no? Also “He has fixed” the Earth whatever deal…is an orbit not a fixed path? Care to try again?

    But that’s just on some of the verses over there that I saw at some point.

  9. You’re a sorceress and a shape-shifter by your own admission, La Mona. You’ve also strongly implied that your ancestors slept with gorillas by the use of your name, which I’m told means “monkey” in some language or other. Why should your analysis of anything be trusted?

  10. “You’re a sorceress and a shape-shifter by your own admission, La Mona.”

    Quote please.

    “You’ve also strongly implied that your ancestors slept with gorillas by the use of your name”

    Quote please.

    Thanks in advance!

  11. I told you that I was flexible. I’m sorry that you do not understand the English language to the extent to note that “bend” (my word) and “shift” (your word) are two different things. We’ve been over this before, and your arguement was shoved in the dirt then…as it is now. Your false labels of me through your word twisting are quite amusing considering I’m a Christian.

    And yes, “la mona” means “the monkey” in Spanish. That does not mean that I believe my ancestors slept with monkeys (that’s sick, and you seem to assume this of a lot of people…are you having issues?). La Mona is a nickname I have picked up. I like to climb things, and I a very hyper person. That and some more led to me being la mona and my other friend being la ardilla (the squirrel). It’s just a nickname between me, my friend, and our Spanish teacher(s).

    Any other baseless attacks of ignorance that you’re so fond of that I need to address?

  12. Sisyphus assumes that of anyone who’s liberal.

    Also, he seems to only be capable of ad hominems.
