Commentary to return tomorrow.
- The right to impose Christianity | The religious right worked itself into a righteous fury at "Justice Sunday," using the stalemate over judges to tar Democrats as enemies of God. (Salon)
- Chandler, McConnell reflect split over Justice Sunday | Others in Congress are mum on issue (Courier-Journal, Louisville)
- Christians on the right go high-tech | Conservative Christian groups trying to characterize congressional filibusters on judicial nominees as "against people of faith" went high-tech with their message on Sunday. (Herald News, N.J.)
- All the king's men | I always thought that Satan and his legion of demons were the ones that stood "against people of faith." Right? So if I wish to maintain the filibuster as a mean of protecting the minority from the tyranny of the majority, then I'm in league with satanic forces? Forgive me for asking, but I thought as a Christian I was saved by faith, believing in my heart and confessing with my mouth that Jesus is my Lord. Does being saved now also mean supporting the rewriting of Senate rules? And not to vote the way Dobson instructs means that I'm not "really" a Christian? (Miguel A. De La Torre, Holland Sentinel, Mich.)
- 'Justice Sunday' raises the ire of both the left and right | The conservative campaign to fight Democratic filibusters has brought the religion & politics debate to a new juncture. (Religion News Service)
- The Democrats' intimidation tactics | Democrats have depicted the Family Research Council and Focus on the Family, which sponsored Sunday night's telecast from a church in Louisville, Ky., as demonizing liberal Democratic senators who use the filibuster to block judicial nominations as "anti-Christian." The conservative Christians are right to be upset over the way that Democratic pols and their allies, like People For the American Way, have intimated that judicial nominees who are Christian and who have criticized Roe v. Wade are "outside the mainstream" and unqualified for the federal bench. (Editorial, The Washington Times)
