Chief Justice Roberts Too Controversial for Commencement Address?

This is just sad. What a wonderful opportunity it would have been
for the graduates to hear a speech from a Supreme Court justice.
The Supreme Court is not supposed to be seen as partisan.
Justice is supposed to be blind.
INDIANAPOLIS — When John Roberts' niece graduates
in May from Butler University this May, the Supreme
Court chief justice may attend as a relative — but he has
been deemed too controversial to take the stage as
commencement speaker.

University faculty members scuttled a student-led
drive to invite Roberts to speak at the May 8
ceremony, a decision that has disappointed the
students and some conservatives on the Indianapolis
campus.

"We try to steer clear of political divides if
possible,"
Butler Faculty Senate President
Jeanne VanTyle
told the Indianapolis Star.
It's more evidence that the even the Supreme Court has been
sullied by politics.
