Justice Sunday II: This Time It's Biblical
For those of you who missed the "Justice Sunday" protest against the judicial filibuster, Tony Perkins, the Family Research Council and American Taliban friends are back with Justice Sunday II.
Justice Sunday II, to be held on Sunday, August 14th in Nashville, Tennessee, brings together some of the leading lights of the American reactionary right in support of Bush SCOTUS nominee John Roberts. The FRC's own Perkins will be joined by convicted Watergate felon turned prison minister Chuck Colson. Colson, who compared termed Deep Throat/Mark Felt to 'feral children" and called Karl Rove "a very decent man being badly abused", will share the stage with Focus on the Family's James Dobson. (Dobson, it will be remembered, compared stem cell research to experiments in Nazi death camps and waged a jihad against the gay agenda agent SpongeBob Squarepants.) Other crypto-conservatives on the JSII agenda include the Eagle Forum's Phyllis Schlafly, the Catholic League's Bill Donahue and Bush bath water drinker Zell Miller.
In a late change, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist was bumped in favor of Representative Tom Delay. Frist, whose witness malpractice in the Terri Schiavo affair made him such a smash hit at the first Justice Sunday soiree back in April, was booted for his reversal of stem cell research. Tom Delay, though under a cloud of scandal in the House, will replace Frist and speak on ways to bring a "biblical worldview" to government.
