John Lofton, the Constitution Party maven and genuine theocrat, has an essay up condemning Jay Sekulow as a mindless cheerleader for Bush’s judicial nominees. Sekulow is the director of Pat Robertson’s American Center for Law and Justice. And just to show you in their own words how completely insane the Constitution Party is, take a look at this statement of what it would take for Lofton to support a judicial nominee:
1. An iron-clad, no-compromise insistence that all judicial nominees must, first, acknowledge the God of the Bible as the source of law. This would mean a pledge to disregard all human laws and/or court rulings that conflict with God’s Law.
2. An iron-clad, no-compromise insistence that all judicial nominees must be truly pro-life which means no exceptions regarding abortion – none.
Yikes. Here’s a pretty good rule of thumb, I think: If you think Jay Sekulow is not enough of a Christian conservative, you’re so far out on the lunatic fringe that we may not be able to spot you with the Hubble telescope. Yes, Virginia, it is possible to be even scarier than Robert Bork.
