Justice Sunday A Success. Will Liberals Ever Learn?

Interesting read over at the Opinion Journal.

Judging While Catholic--II
Democrats attack Christian judges, defeat themselves.

As the debate heated up in April over ending Democrats' use of the filibuster to block votes on judicial nominees, the secular left worked itself into a frenzy when religious leaders organized a multichurch telecast to focus attention on the fact that the president's blocked appellate court nominees all happened to be "people of faith."

Their indignation focused principally on Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist's apparent endorsement of this neuralgic observation. Liberal editorialists, organizations and senators tried to get Mr. Frist to pull out of the event, but he stood his ground.

In 2003, Sen. Frist had reminded a thousand pastors at the National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast that the U.S. Constitution contained three religion clauses, not just the First Amendment's well-known two protecting the free exercise of religion and prohibiting a state-sponsored church. Mr. Frist used scriptural reference to an audience that understood. The religious test clause of Article VI, prohibiting inquiry into a nominee's religious views, he said, was the "rock" upon which the "house" of America's thriving religious liberty was founded.

Despite liberals' attempt to taint Justice Sunday, and perhaps because of it, the event was an enormous success, which is why this Sunday at 7 p.m. EDT, Americans can log on to for a live Webcast of Justice Sunday II--an event that will introduce Judge John G. Roberts Jr. to millions of Christians.
