The Attack Dogs--or Maybe Just Plain Dogs...

Wonder what's been up to lately?

On their website they feature a picture of Benedict XVI, holding a gavel, in front of the doors of the US Supreme Court.

The caption reads "God Already Has a Job...He Does Not Need One on the Supreme Court. Protect the Supreme Court Rules."

I am reasonably certain that Pope Benedict is not interested in a nomination to the USSC.

I am also reasonably certain that needs a good kick in the butt.

UPDATE:’s calumny is reminiscent of attacks on the Church by the Ku Klux
Klan. In the 1920s, the cross-burners attempted to whip up anti-Catholic
hysteria with visions of the Vatican taking over America. When Catholic Al Smith
ran for president in 1928, the Klan instructed that a Democratic victory would
signal the end of religious freedom in America.

Congress would be
replaced by a college of cardinals. Protestant marriages would be nullified. The
Spanish Inquisition – and not the Monty Python version – would be just around
the corner.

A libel invented by bigots in bed sheets now is
routinely repeated by bigots in Gucci loafers. The thrust of the ad:
If Bush has the same power as all of his predecessors (to appoint judges who
share his values) it will be tantamount to turning the judiciary over to the
Catholic Church. Abortion will be banned. There will be no gay marriage. Nuns
will teach sex-education classes. Mel Gibson will be chairman of the National
Endowment for the Arts. The seas will boil up. Michael Moore’s head will
explode. (Don Feder, via Professor Bainbridge)
