Drinkin' The Kool-Aid

The Peach supposes that now justices will say just about anything to get a promotion. The LA Times is reporting that Justice Janice Rogers Brown, on the heels of her federal appellate nomination, stated that people of faith were "embroiled in a war against secular humanists who threatened to divorce America from its religious roots."

Her speech, designed to portray those opposing Bush's judicial nominees as heathens and Satan worshipers, came before a group of Roman Catholic legal professionals. Justice Brown went on to hint that a person of faith could lose "something" by standing up for what they believe in.

Afterwards, Gary Bauer, president of the socially conservative group American Values, circulated an e-mail claiming that Justice Brown's beliefs is why "the abortion crowd, the homosexual movement and the radical secularists are all demanding that Senate liberals block her confirmation."

No, Gary. We don't support her nomination because she aligns herself with people like you. It's all because of people like you.
