Right Wing Watch has the text of a fundraising letter from Gordon Klingenschmitt, asking people to send him money to stop the confirmation of a judge who was already confirmed.
Activist Judge Jesse Furman once legislated from the bench to change the First Amendment to allow unprecedented erosion to freedom of religion and speech. Furman tried to ban a Christian organization from using public property. The Supreme Court emphatically shot him down, and not even the liberals on the bench supported him. The high court rebuked Furman’s idea that “to extend the school day for elementary school children by offering religious worship, instruction and indoctrination on public school grounds would result in an unprecedented erosion of Establishment Clause values that would reverberate well beyond this particular case.” Furman banned Christian kids!
Please select here to sign urgent petition, and we will fax all 100 Senators (saving you time!) to OPPOSE and FILIBUSTER three bad judges to stop forcing their anti-Jesus, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual views on the American people.
But the Supreme Court ruled kids are free to assemble for worship, firmly rebuking Furman’s anti-Jesus views. Furman had ruled that First Amendment Rights of free speech do not extend to Christians, “because they do not promote cohesion among heterogeneous democratic people.” He wrote in his official brief to the Supreme Court that all forms of traditional Christianity are intolerant because they label children as either unsaved or unsaved.
Furman was confirmed a month ago. Reminds me of a similar letter that got Robert Tilton in trouble long ago, when he told a woman that if she only sent him more money, God would heal her husband of cancer. Her husband was already dead when that latter was sent.
And you’re gonna love the disclaimer at the bottom of Klingenschmitt’s donation page:
Disclaimer: The views of Chaplain Klingenschmitt, who was honorably but involuntarily discharged from the Navy in 2007 after facing court-martial for praying ‘in Jesus name’ in uniform, (but was later vindicated by Congress), are his own personal views. Your donations to GJK, Inc. are not tax-deductible, but are highly effective when used to publish our political opinions and advocate for Christian causes in public policies, and may or may not evaluate and inform the public concerning stands taken by candidates for public office.
He’s still lying about why he was discharged, of course. But I find it funny that he can’t even take the time to form a crappy little non-profit before asking for donations.
