justice, bloody justice sunday

Do you enjoy your hate-speech cloaked in the rhetoric of evangelical Christianity? Do you think life would be a lot better here in America if we just agreed to have a state religion? If you answered “yes” to either of those questions, be sure not to miss James Dobson and the folks from the Family Research Council for “Justice Sunday II: God Save the United States and this Honorable Court!,” a veritable Christian hate-fest being held today in Tennessee… (As I’m busy today, I won’t be able to make it to one of the simulcast locations, but, among other things, I’m very curious as to what they’ll say about senator Bill Frist, who, once the darling of the far right, has recently been kicked to the “Christ-hating” curb by Christian extremists for finally coming around to reality and supporting stem cell research. Perhaps to teach him a lesson, Frist was not invited to today’s event, although it’s in his own back yard, and his place at the podium has been given instead to ethically-challenged congressman Tom DeLay.) If you’re interested in learning more about Justice Sunday, there’s a nice little article over at Counterpunch, and I’m sure someone will post notes later this evening at the Daily Kos.

UPDATE: I just received word from a blogger in Nashville named Jackson Miller that he would be keeping a running commentary at his site once the event got rolling.

UPDATE II: It seems as though one of the featured speakers at the event is someone that Jackson knows, a former client that never paid for his services after he helped design a Christian e-commerce site for her… She’s talking about Christian values… Isn’t irony great?

    Thanks, Jackson. I just put a link up on my front page, and I’ll be tuning to to see what you have to say… Best of luck.
