Senator Harry Reid Clears Path for Anti-Jesus Pro-Allah Judge

This is an URGENT PETITION! from Pray in Jesus Name Project -
They've now sent nearly 850,000 faxes to the Senate with a goal of 1 Million

David Hamilton, an Indiana native nominated to serve on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, is the Judge who ruled it's illegal to pray "in Jesus name" but totally legal to pray to Allah on the floor of the Indiana Legislature.
His foolish ruling in Hinrichs v. Bosma was overturned. 

He also ruled to hasten the abortion of unborn children, but that bad ruling was also overturned.

Now Obama wants to reward Hamilton's anti-life anti-Jesus prejudice with promotion to the same appeals court that overruled him.

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) wrote a letter to all Republicans on 30 Oct, asking for help in opposing Hamilton, who the Seventh Circuit Court rebuked for repeatedly "abusing his discretion," and for a speech Hamilton gave saying the judge's primary job is "write footnotes in the Constitution" for his own activist causes.

To support Sessions and Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) who called for a filibuster, back in April/ May 2009, nearly 700,000 fax petitions were sent to the full Senate against Hamilton, and all Republicans united against Hamilton, earning all 7 minority votes to block him in the Judiciary Committee. But all 12 committee majority Democrats voted against Jesus-prayers, and so forwarded Hamilton to the full Senate, where his nomination sat quietly without action for seven months, until now...

Now this anti-Jesus Judge Hamilton will face the full Senate, with the hopeful threat of filibuster by the pro-faith, pro-family Senator James Inhofe (R-OK).

To stop Hamilton, 40 strong Senate votes are needed to stand with Senator Inhofe, to uphold his filibuster.

Identified are 17 key undecided Senators, from which we need just 7 votes to successfully defeat Hamilton's nomination:

x Ben Nelson, D-NE 202-224-6551  y George Voinovich, R-OH 202-224-3353

x Bill Nelson, D-FL 202-224-5274  y Judd Gregg, R-NH 202-224-3324

x Kay Hagan, D-NC 202-224-6342  y Richard Lugar, R-IN 202-224-4814

x Mark Pryor, D-AR 202-224-2353  y Olympia Snowe, R-ME 202-224-5344

xz Blanche Lincoln, D-AR 202-224-4843  y Susan Collins, R-ME 202-224-2523

z Chris Dodd, D-CT 202-224-2823  xy Kit Bond, R-MO 202-224-5721

z Barbara Boxer, D-CA 202-224-3553

z Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY 202-224-4451  z Michael Bennet, D-CO 202-224-5852

z Roland Burris, D-IL 202-224-2854  z Byron Dorgan, D-ND 202-224-2551

x = Lives in the South.
y = Voted for Sebelius.
z = Facing re-election in 2010

Rule of Thumb: 100 emails = 10 phone calls = 1 fax in political capital, since the Senate staffers must handle each paper and usually write a reply.

Judge Hamilton wrote: "The injunction orders the Speaker...that the prayers should not use Christ's name or title or any other denominational appeal...If those offering prayers in the Indiana House of Representatives choose to use the Arabic 'Allah'...the court sees little risk that the choice of language would advance a particular religion or disparage others."

(What crazy version of the First Amendment is he reading?)

In 2007, The 'Pray in Jesus Name' project provided legal arguments to the Indiana Attorney General who appealed to the 7th Circuit Court and WON a 2-1 decision overruling Hamilton, restoring the right to pray "in Jesus name" in Indiana. But if President Obama succeeds in promoting Hamilton to the same court that overruled him, that good reversal will be in jeopardy.

Judge Hamilton is the worst of Obama's 15 new liberal appeals court appointees. The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals covers Wisconsin, Indiana, and Illinois. Since most cases never reach the Supreme Court, the federal appellate circuits often provide the last word on cases affecting life and liberty.


The Judicial Confirmation Network quickly opposed Hamilton's nomination, stating that "President Obama's first nominee to the federal appeals courts -- specifically the appeals court based in Chicago -- is an ultra-liberal named David Hamilton who is a former fundraiser for ACORN and former leader of the Indiana chapter of the ACLU. He was nominated to the district court bench by President Clinton even though he had no judicial experience and was rated as 'not qualified' by the American Bar Association."

Now newly promoted Judiciary Committee ranking minority Member Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), agrees with pro-faith Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), that we should oppose and filibuster Hamilton's nomination to the 7th Circuit. Thanks in part to our public pressure, the Republicans and Sessions have twice succeeded in delaying Hamilton's committee votes, saying "This a complex area of the law, I'll admit, but it's time for the federal court to get their heads straight on proper separation of church and state issues."

On April 1st and again on April 29th, Senator Orrin Hatch led all Republicans to walk out of the Senate Judiciary Committee, in protest against the Democrat "rush job" to confirm Judge Hamilton. Senator Jeff Sessions said he was troubled by Hamilton's ruling against a sectarian prayer to open the Indiana House of Representatives. Even Senator Arlen Specter expressed concern about Hamilton while serving as a Republican, but after switching parties he broke his promise to not become a "rubber stamp" for the Obama Administration, and voted to confirm Hamilton anyway. But will any Democrats oppose the anti-Jesus Hamilton?

God Bless you, in Jesus' name,

The Pray in Jesus Name Project offers to FAX YOUR PETITION TO ALL 100 SENATORS to oppose and filibuster Judge David Hamilton.

Oh how I love reading your blog. Our views are just alike and how refreshing it is for somebody to actually tell the bold truth without all of the fluffiness or sugar. Politics are just horrible and so unGodly. Our Founding Fathers are turning over in their graves. Obama finally admitted he was a Muslim and I'm still wondering about that birth certificate and why it's so hard to find? Americans need to stay informed and this is definitely the place to do it. Wonderful blog and information. Thank you!
