Phyllis Schlafly: Shut Up

I've had it with the religious right and their zealous attempts to install activist judges on the bench of the Supreme Court.

Conservatives look past Miers: Leaders say they want justice with clear conservative views

"I think [conservative groups] will swing into action again" if they disagree with his next pick, said Phyllis Schlafly, president of Eagle Forum. "The judicial issue was a major issue in the 2004 elections, and it was a reason why many people voted for Bush even though they might have been unhappy [with him] for other reasons."

Schlafly said Bush has "a dozen" possible people that conservative activists would accept, while she singled out U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales as a nominee they could not embrace.

And yes, for as much as they bitch about "liberal" judges being "judicial activists," the religious right is praying for a conservative who will legislate from the bench. Their ultimate goal? To extinguish a woman's right to choose, and, dare I say, to ban the use of contraception.

It's all about the white Jesus.

How did a vast minority like the Christian right gain so much power over the White House? Time to muzzle them. They have far too much to say about how we should live our lives in this country.

yes, yes, yes! i have always wondered, who was being the dutiful housewife in her home all those years that she was thumping her bible and advising women that to be both patriotic and to assure entrance into the kingdom of heaven women should be bare foot and pregnant and in the kitchen. oh, she prettied up her message in doblespeak, but it was there all the same.
i stayed home, raised my one child to be a productive, good person and geez, i didn't need to thump one bible or call up one right wing yapper!
