Justice Sunday — Back By Popular Demand

You probably remember “Justice Sunday” from this past April, that huge gathering of the Spanish Inquisition prominent Christian Fundamentalists and Dominionists. They all congregated to inform The Faithful that God does not want the next Supreme Court nomination to be filibustered by evil Democrats.

It was such a booming success, there had to be a sequel — Son of Justice Sunday. It was held last Sunday in Nashville.

Bill Frist, formerly the fair-haired boy for the Salem Witch Trials Christian Theocracy movement, was not invited to the party this time. Apparently he dropped the ball. His Mission From God was to permanently eliminate the filibuster. And instead he compromised — Compromised! — with godless liberals. And of course he flipflopped on stem cell research. Bye Bill — you didn’t get into the fraternity. You’ve been officially blackballed by Tau Kappa Jesus.

Tom DeLay was there; he needed a break from fending off Grand Juries and reporters. He told the crowd “All wisdom does not reside in nine persons in black robes. The Constitution is clear on the point that the power to make laws is vested on Congress.”

With John Roberts’ hearings beginning in early September, DeLay needed to remind everyone of the Eleventh Commandment: “Thou Shalt Not Filibuster.” Ironically, some conservatives are now concerned that Roberts might actually be too liberal for the Supreme Court. Hmmm…Awkward…If they end up voting against Roberts because of his “liberal” views, how will they spin this?

James Dobson was there (of course!). He said America’s highest ranking judges are “unelected, unaccountable and arrogant.” Dobson speaks not only with God, but also with our Founding Fathers. Hot Damn! — talk about sitting at the Popular Table. In his speech, he claimed to know exactly what the Founding Fathers wanted.

Bill Donohue, president of The Catholic League, spoke in favor of a constitutional amendment stating “unless a judicial vote is unanimous, you cannot overturn a law created by Congress.”

Another speaker said “Activist justices — we’re trying to find out what we can do to stop that activity. Our laws are based on the Ten Commandments.” Oh.

Fortunately, there were some other religious groups protesting against Son of Justice Sunday. An organizer of Community of Faith and Unity Gathering said “this is so Americans can see the ’Justice Sunday’ sponsors and Tom DeLay don’t have any exclusive hold on religion.”

The founder of Faith Voices for the Common Good said “those people meeting with Tom DeLay, Chuck Colson and Jim Dobson think they own the Bible and that God speaks only to them.”

Right on. I guess the rest of us aren't good enough, and now Bill Frist is one of our ranks... sigh...

Snave: That looks like an interesting site. In other words they go by what the Bible actually says, instead of Dobson / Colson / DeLay's twisted interpretations.

They think they can talk to the founding fathers now my question is what kind of phone they are using and how much is the cost to do this?

It is obvious to me they know nothing about the constitution they have violated Article 1, Section 8 about every day they have been in office and what was the purpose of the Supreme Court in the first place if it was not to keep our republic from becoming to democratic?

I find it odd that they know what the founders wanted, security cameras, the patriot act, and lets not forget an end to those free speech loving liberals.

This nation moves more and more towards theocracy then most people realize.

The books are being burned already, Harry Potter, along with New Agey, Wiccan, Pagan.. all with the sanctioning and blessing of just the people that your article mentions--people like Dobson, people like Falwell..

Soon, those that read them will be on the "watch lists" as undesirables...

The founding fathers were not all Christian, as a matter of fact we had not only agnostics but even an atheist amongst their numbers. It is hard to believe that given that, that they ever meant for this country to be run by christianity. That is like an urban legend that just won't go away.

Jake: Good point. And I think if they’re psychic enough to communicate with the Founding Fathers, they shouldn’t need surveillance cameras and the Patriot Act. They should just “know” who the subversives are. If God doesn’t tell them, George Washington will.

Nariel: Yeah, I can’t believe all the books they’re trying to ban/burn. Usually they’ve been smart enough not to tangle with authors or movements that have lots of followers. But now they’re going after the Harry Potter books and the Da Vinci Code — they’re gonna be tangling with millions of loyal readers. I think they’ll be in over their heads.

Yeah, that’s a urban legend all right, that we’re a Christian Nation. That one guy who said America was founded on the Ten Commandments. Riiight.

A reading of the words of the Founders themselves reveal how afraid they were of a Jesusistan.

I find the words of the Founders, themselves, to be most revealing.
