AmTaliban org to deliver 250K sig petition tomorrow to White House
Behind the petition drive are D. James Kennedy of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church (also head of the scarily-named Evangelism Explosion International) and fellow wingnut, pastor, politician, activist, and musician Gary Cass. According to Cass’s bio, he’s a “tireless Christian warrior for God and an entrenched pro-life activist.”
The Center for Reclaiming America for Christ has been working on a petition drive to lobby Bush to pick a wingnut for the O’Connor vacancy. They are well on their way to their goal (it’s at 213,539 as I type this). Read this bullsh*t:

The Petition States:
TO: PRESIDENT BUSH, LEADERS IN CONGRESS
As a concerned citizen, I am deeply disturbed by the latest Supreme Court rulings undermining our rights and the Constitution. I am calling on the President to nominate, and the Senate to confirm to the U.S. Supreme Court and all federal courts, only those nominees who:
–Uphold the original meaning of the Constitution.
–Defend the right of the people to publicly acknowledge God and affirm that children in the womb deserve the same legal protection the rest of us enjoy.
I am also urging the U.S. Senate to change the filibustering rules and end the ideological blockade against President Bush’s court nominees.
More than 40 million unborn children have died in America since the tragic 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. In recent years, public opinion has shifted dramatically toward the side of life and pro-life citizens are joining together by the thousands to ensure protection of the unborn. Confirming only pro-life justices and judges not only protects the unborn, but our nation as well.
