Notable quotes from Justice Sunday II

Waiting for lightning to strike this dude down. Zellfire said the Supreme Court “removed prayer from our public schools . . . legalized the barbaric killing of unborn babies, and it is ready to discard like an outdated hula hoop the universal institution of marriage between a man and a woman.”

The pro-choice folks and the homos, not surprisingly, bore the brunt of the bible-beating at the bombastic Justice Sunday II love-in for the Right. Here is what was targeted at the fundamentalist base over the airwaves yesterday (via WP).

The Supreme Court has sanctioned “the right to kill unborn children” and opened the door to legalized “homosexual sodomy,” declared Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, which co-sponsored “Justice Sunday II.”

James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, told the 2,200 mostly white people in Two Rivers Baptist Church: “It doesn’t matter what we think. The court rules.” The Supreme Court, he said in a video broadcast, has created “an oligarchy. It’s the government by the few.”

Rejected Supreme Court nominee Robert H. Bork warned that the high court has defined homosexuality as “a constitutional right . . . and once homosexuality is defined as a constitutional right, there is nothing the states can do about it, nothing the people can do about it.”

House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) said “activist courts” are imposing “state-sanctioned same-sex marriage” and “partial-birth abortion” and are “ridding the public square of any mention of our nation’s religious heritage” in what amounts to “judicial supremacy, judicial autocracy.” In Supreme Court rulings, DeLay said, “rights are invented out of whole cloth. Long-standing traditions are found to be unconstitutional. Moral values that have defined the progress of human civilization for millennia are cast aside in favor of those espoused by a handful of unelected, lifetime-appointed judges.”

And, of course, they trotted out one of the usual black homo-bigot pastors out to bolster their case, and to continue to build bridges with the community over “values.” I wonder how much faith-based taxpayer funds he’s received…

Harry R. Jackson Jr., senior pastor at Hope Christian Church in College Park, Md., said the “Christian community is experiencing a new unity around the moral values that we share because of common faith.” Jackson, who is black, said that appointing judges who will strictly interpret the Constitution is advantageous to blacks. “If justice matters to anybody in America, it matters to minorities and to people who have historically been at the bottom of the barrel” who will not have “to deal with a maverick judge changing the law at the last minute.”
