"To the average person, the result looks stupid and smells worse," he wrote. "The decision looks misogynist because the majority were all men. It looks partisan because all were appointed by a Republican. The decision looks religiously motivated because each member of the majority belongs to the Catholic church, and that religious organization is opposed to contraception."

Kopf argued that the Supreme Court should have left the case alone, and should stay far away from controversial issues.

"Next term is the time for the Supreme Court to go quiescent–this term and several past terms has proven that the Court is now causing more harm (division) to our democracy than good by deciding hot button cases that the Court has the power to avoid. As the kids says [sic], it is time for the Court to stfu," he wrote.

He linked to the Urban Dictionary definition of "stfu," which is an abbreviation for "shut the fuck up."

Kopf has maintained his colorful blog since February 2013. In March, he penned a controversial post about "how young women lawyers dress."

"You can’t win. Men are both pigs and prudes. Get over it," he wrote about how women should approach dressing for court, adding that he has "been a dirty old man ever since I was a very young man."
