Will the neo-con christians stop at nothing until this country becomes a Christian Theocracy. I think there is a word for this, Taliban. Maybe in a few years we will need the Iraqis and the Afganis to come to our rescue!
Christian Conservatives Will Take Aim at Supreme Court in New Telecast

WASHINGTON, July 14 - Stepping up efforts to rally churchgoers for a Supreme Court confirmation battle, Christian conservatives are organizing a telecast to churches and religious broadcasters denouncing the Supreme Court as hostile to religion and families.
The event, scheduled for Aug. 14 and called Justice Sunday II after a similar telecast in April, will focus on "the court's hostility toward religion and Christianity in particular," said Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council and the principal organizer of the event. Its subtitle is a prayer said each time the court meets: "God save the United States and this Honorable Court."
The telecast was organized by some of the most influential conservative Christian supporters of the Bush administration after Justice Sandra Day O'Connor announced her retirement. But its organizers are evidently disregarding White House requests not to inject talk of a culture war into the debate over a Supreme Court nominee.
"People have to understand, this is not just about a process," Mr. Perkins said. "This is about the future of the country, it is about our families, it is about the freedom of religion."
Still, the event's organizers have shifted their approach in at least one respect, quieting their opposition to Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales as a potential nominee for the court.
Just a week ago, Focus on the Family, an evangelical self-help group closely allied with the Family Research Council, was threatening to oppose the White House if President Bush nominated Mr. Gonzales, whom many social conservatives view as not committed enough to opposing abortion rights.
