These f*ckers must be stopped.

Christian conservative leaders say their top priority in President Bush’s second term is the appointment of conservative judges to the Supreme Court and throughout the judicial system.

“We have high hopes of changing the judiciary. Every judicial appointment that President Bush makes will make the courts less radical and more in tune with the voters who turned out in Tuesday’s election,” said Gary Bauer, a prominent Christian conservative leader and president of American Values, a conservative pressure group.

Unprecedented turnout by evangelical Christians was a key factor in ensuring Bush’s narrow victory over Democrat John Kerry in the election. Many were motivated by their opposition to same sex marriage and abortion.

…Many Christians see passage of a constitutional amendment outlawing same sex marriage, which Bush has endorsed, as an important priority.

“Getting the amendment enacted within the next four years has become a realistic goal,” said Charles Colson, a radio host and founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries which seeks to rehabilitate prisoners by converting them to evangelical Christianity.

Influential radio evangelist James Dobson and other conservative Christian organizations lost no time after the election in calling for a renewed push for the constitutional amendment, which failed in both houses of Congress this year.
