THREE reasons Alito should not be on the US Supreme Court!

"You poor, insignificant fools!"
(Little Mermaid)

Santorum, Dobson, Falwell speak at Justice Sunday III

PHILADELPHIA (BP)–Meeting in the city where America was founded, conservative leaders gathered in Philadelphia Jan. 8, 2006 to spotlight judicial activism and to demand an up-or-down vote on Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito.

"We are here to take a stand for our religious liberties and our religious freedoms. And they are under attack" Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said at the beginning of the rally, dubbed "Justice Sunday III: Proclaim Liberty Throughout the Land."

(1.) Sen. Rick Santorum, R.-Pa., pointed to the religious freedom guaranteed in the Constitution and championed by America’s founders. "That freedom is at risk today because of the actions of liberal activist judges on the Supreme Court," Santorum said.

(2.) Focus on the Family’s James Dobson called the effort to get Alito confirmed "one of the most important issues that has occurred ... in recent history because of the issue of judicial tyranny."

Dobson asked the audience a series of questions, and each time elicited a loud "yes!"

"Do you believe that school children should be able to read the Bible in school? Do you believe that school children should be able to pray in school? Do you believe that there should be prayer at graduation activities and sporting events? ... Do you believe that every child in this country should be able to ... say the Pledge of Allegiance with 'under God' included" Dobson concluded: "The American people do not want what the court has done to them."

(3.) Jerry Falwell, pastor of Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Va., said Alito's confirmation could be pivotal in the history of the pro-family movement.

''What we’ve worked on for 30 years – to mobilize people of faith and values in this country ... is coming to culmination, to consummation, right now," Falwell said. "... There could be a reconstruction of the U.S. Supreme Court in our immediate lifetime. What a wonderful thing that would be."

These three "wise men" are right of course - the Supreme Court is the key. It's the prize of the Bush elections. And it's what scares the living devil out of me. I saw this possibility before 2000 and thought to myself that the American people would never let it happen.

I'm not sure who's the bigger fool - them or me. But bottom line is that we both getting screwed.
