Jesus was a GOP lobbyist... or so the Christians want to believe

Where is Mad Max Mel Gibson when you need him? Last Justice Sunday - Stopping the Filibuster Against People of Faith in many United States churches, Christian conservative groups organized a telecast to denounce the Democrats as "against people of faith" for blocking judicial nominees. The lead group in this event was the Family Research Council (FRC), the defenders of family, faith and freedom. Spreading the word of God by promoting intolerance basically.



Below is a sample of letter that FRC President Tony Perkins posted on their website and sent out to millions of Americans.

Justice Sunday: Stop the Filibuster Against People of Faith

Dear Friend:

A day of decision is upon us. Whether it was the legalization of abortion, the banning of school prayer, the expulsion of the 10 Commandments from public spaces, or the starvation of Terri Schiavo, decisions by the courts have not only changed our nation's course, but even led to the taking of human lives. As the liberal, anti-Christian dogma of the left has been repudiated in almost every recent election, the courts have become the last great bastion for liberalism.

For years activist courts, aided by liberal interest groups like the ACLU, have been quietly working under the veil of the judiciary, like thieves in the night, to rob us of our Christian heritage and our religious freedoms. Federal judges have systematically grabbed power, usurping the constitutional authority that resides in the other two branches of government and, ultimately, in the American people.

We now have a President who is committed to nominate judicial candidates who are not activists, but strict constructionists -- judges who will simply interpret the Constitution as it was written. We now have a majority in the U.S. Senate that will confirm these nominees. However, there is a radical minority that has launched an unprecedented filibuster against these outstanding men and women.

Many of these nominees to the all-important appellate court level are being blocked, not because they haven't paid their taxes or because they have used drugs or because they have criminal records or for any other reason that would disqualify them from public service; rather, they are being blocked because they are people of faith and moral conviction. These are people whose only offense is to say that abortion is wrong or that marriage should be between one man and one woman.

Only 51 votes are needed to approve these nominees and most of these candidates, if not all, would receive more then 51 votes if a vote were held on the Senate floor. But a radical minority in the Senate is using the filibuster to block an up or down vote on the Senate floor. They are requiring a super majority, 60 votes, to proceed on these nominees. This liberal minority does not respect the will of the people: they want judge-made law because our elected officials will not give them the social anarchy they demand.

The Senate Majority Leader, Bill Frist of Tennessee, is committed to returning Constitutional order to the Senate by requiring an up-or-down vote on these nominees. To do this, he urgently needs the help of every "values voter." Without doubt, this will be the most important vote cast in the United States Senate in this term. If this effort fails, the best we can hope for are likely to be mediocre judges who meet the approval of Ted Kennedy, Charles Schumer and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

This is an event you won't want to miss, an historic debate we can't afford to lose!

Sincerely,

Tony Perkins
President

Wow! The filibuster, which the FRC talks of, is a staple of American government and has been used by both parties as a check and a balance. Also, Democratic politicians are allot of things, but against faith is a little strong. This gathering is just further proof about why the separation of church and state is essential. I don't even want to touch some of the other shit in there. A nice touch name dropping the raving liberal Hillary though. I so hope she runs in 2008.



During the address, Senator Majority Leader Bill Frist of Tennessee stepped up his threats to change Senate rules to circumvent those blockades while simultaneously calling for "more civility in political life." Dr. Frist (of the tears and sweat can cause AIDS fame and Terri Schiavo is not in a vegetation state - I can see it on the tape) is one of the many expected to throw his hat in the ring for the Republican leadership in 2008. Here is hoping.

Justification for airing the program came from the far corners of the United States, but none was better than New Jersey Pastor Bill Rooney. "This country was founded on biblical truths and religious freedom," Rooney said. "So the fact that anyone wants a separation of church and state goes against our founding principles." Shortly after watching the broadcast Rooney retreated to his cave to reminisce about the good old days of public stonings and slavery.
