Dwarfs of Mystic Design

Pharyngula: Needs pygmies

We three Dwarfs of Mystic Design,
Deeply delve, quotations to mine,
Fortune telling, query quelling,
Vacuously divine.

O, Dwarfs with faith and Dwarfs with fight,
Dwarfs who'll make all learning rite,
Darkness dwelling, books bestselling,
We don't need no steenkin' light.

When we coached a Philippine judge,
Gave his thoughts a prescient nudge,
Why attack him? Why'd they sack him?
Obvious godless grudge.

O, Dwarfs with faith and Dwarfs with fight,
Dwarfs who'll make all learning rite,
Darkness dwelling, profit swelling,
We don't need no steenkin' light.

Long we fought to sweeten the schools
Soured by bitter Lemon-y rules;
Tasty panda propaganda
Couldn't persuade the fools.

O, Dwarfs with faith and Dwarfs with fight,
Dwarfs who'll make all learning rite,
Darkness dwelling, bullshit smelling,
We don't need no steenkin' light.

Judge Florentino V. Floro Jr., “Healing Judge” Part 1 of 6 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wECTKjkkZLs&search=judge%20floro



I am Judge Florentino V. Floro, Jr. (a Regional Trial Court Judge of Br. 73, Malabon, NCJR, Metro Manila, REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES). My physical address is 123 Dahlia, Alido, Malolos, 3000 Bulacan, Philippines. My E-mail Address is: judge_florentino_v_floro@yahoo.com; my telephone number is (044) 662-82-03, digitel, Philippines.

On April 6, 2006, the Philippine Supreme Court RELIEVED (separated - it did not dismiss) me from judicial service, and paid me 3 years backwages, by reason of PSYCHOSIS, a medical incapacity - because I allegedly believed in dwarves, angel of death, inflicting sicknesses, healing, prophecy, psychic phenomena and (in writing) predicted the downfall of 13th Philippine President Joseph Estrada (on December, 1998) who was ousted by people power on January 20, 2001. [Vide: Court Decision penned by M. Justice Minita Viray-Chico Nazario, 75 pages, March 31, 2006 in: A.M. No. RTJ-99-1460 http://www.supremecourt.gov.ph/jurisprudence/2006/mar2006/A.M.%20No.%20RTJ-99-1460.htm.



This is the FIRST time in world judicial history that this happened. The American and other Constitutions provide for dismissal or removal of judges, jurists and magistrates because of graft, corruption, misconduct, or bad behavior; but resignation - only for those medically incapacitated. In the Philippines, this is the FIRST --- for since 1901, our Court never ever dismissed or removed a judge because of belief in the paranormal, religion and psi. Hence, REUTERS, AFP, AP, ASIAN REPORTER, MSNBC, MY WAY News, NEW24.com, ABC NEWS ONLINE, GULF TIMES, 7DAYS, AE, BUZZSPREE.COM, Foreign BLOGGERS, THE DAILY JUDGE, or a total of 1000++ foreign REPORTS, NEWS, BLOGS and 14 Philippine News Headlines, covered - REPORTED – the said LANDMARK DECISION (on April 7 & May 6, 2006, until today).

You weren't sacked for your crazy belief,
Nor for calling the fall of your chief.
Your incompetence showed;
They said "Dude, hit the road!"

My case is still pending, since I filed my appeal. With due respect to your opinion, may I submit that, the reason I was charged with all these, is that here in our country, Philippines, the politicians desired to place their candidate in my sala, hence, to oust me.

Anyway, California Justice William Bedsworth’s June 12, 2006 -http://www.acriminalwasteofspace.com/journal_beds.asp
wrote on this:

Judges and Dwarfs Don't Mix

"Until today, I would not have considered my lack of involvement with imaginary mystic dwarfs a great achievement. Until today, I would not have understood it as a compliment if someone said, "I've got some issues with Bedsworth; about the best thing I can say about him is he doesn't talk to imaginary mystic dwarfs." But today I found out the mystic dwarf thing is grounds for removal of a judge in the Philippines.

According to Reuters, "A Philippine judge who claimed he could see into the future and admitted consulting imaginary mystic dwarfs has asked for his job back after being sacked by the country's Supreme Court."


Wow. I'm too old to use the word "awesome," but I just don't know how else to describe that. As judicial flameouts go, that's Krakatoa. My hat's off to former-Judge Florentino Floro and his ... uh ... staff.

This beats the hell out of anything the Judicial Conduct Reporter's come up with lately. And I just love it. I love it because it appeared when I was right up against my deadline.9 I love it because it makes me feel superior. I love it because I've never previously gotten to type the phrase "imaginary mystic dwarfs." And I love it because the guy is APPEALING!

As near as I can determine, he's making this out to be a freedom of religion issue. He says, "They should not have dismissed me for what I believed." Certainly, I can sympathize with that position. The prospect of judges being removed because of their personal belief systems is anathema to all of us.

Regards.

They said the dismissal was because of your:
- incompetence,
- bias shown in a court case, and
- criticism of court procedure.

You said it was because of your beliefs. Fine. Believe that if it helps you feel better about your delusions.

Now you claim that there was a political conspiracy to oust you. I give that no more credence than the existence of your imaginary friends.


Enough of the rambling comments and bulk quotes. There's absolutely no reason for any readers here to believe that you are who you say you are. Best of luck with your creative writing career. Promote it somewhere else.
