"Justice Sunday" and Christian Politics

The most egregious aspect of the Family Research Council's "Justice Sunday" televised conference supporting the GOP's "nuclear option" on judicial nominations was the argument that Christians as a faith community are being excluded from the judiciary. Thanks to The Kentucky Democrat, we have an interesting blow-by-blow account of how particular Christian leaders in one community dealt with this argument, in the context of a decision about carrying the FRC self-pity party on a church-backed cable station. Note the relatively passive statements by Southern Baptist spokesmen, who support the "nuclear option" cause but don't sound that excited about it.
