Liberals oppose Justice Sunday2, big surprise there, NOT

From Reuters...

Liberal religious leaders...

Yes, I'm aware that that “Liberal religious” would be an oxymoron.

...on Thursday criticized Sunday's planned rally to back U.S. Supreme Court nominee John Roberts and said its Christian conservative organizers should not drag religion into his confirmation fight.

"There is no one religious position on the Roberts nomination, no one religious view on the future of the court or the cases it will hear," Rev. Bill Sinkford, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association, told reporters in a conference call.

Sinkford and other religious leaders criticized plans for the evangelical rally, which is designed to build support for Roberts' nomination and highlight what organizers say is the court's judicial activism and hostility to religion.

The Sunday rally in Nashville, Tennessee, is the second televised church event co-sponsored by prominent Christian conservative groups like the Family Research Council and Focus on the Family. The event is titled "Justice Sunday II: God Save the United States and this Honorable Court."

Who cares if there's no “one” religious position on Roberts' nomination. This is our position, and the people at the Family Research Council have the right to inform others about it. Liberals who want to pretend to be religious can go do their own version any time they want to, not that anyone would watch it.
