“Supreme Court Viewed as Hostile to Religion,” by Mark Noonan, Blogs for Bush, 11 June 2005, http://www.blogsforbush.com/mt/archives/004641.html.
This new Rasmussen survey shows that 46% of those polled view the Supreme Court as hostile to religion; 23% view it as too friendly towards religion (I’d really like to talk to some of that 23% and find out what constitutes “too friendly”; apparently, it is allowing for the continued existence of religion). Given that a large majority of Americans are Christian (and among Christians, 52% view the Court as hostile), this is a worrisome development.
While our liberal friends are trying to sell the line that the judicial nominees of President Bush are extremists outside the mainstream, what the President is actually trying to do is restore a bit of balance to the judiciary. For too long now, judges have run roughshod over the beliefs of the people – and when that happens in a government by consent, such consent is eventually withdrawn. Right now, we see the consent in the process of being withdrawn – but the danger is if people don’t think they’ll get a fair hearing in the courts that they will seek redress by other means.
