A few months back, a group called Better Courts Now was formed on the idea that if the state of California just elected that proper sorts of Christian judges on the bench, then controversial issues like Proposition 8 would never even arise. To make that happen, the group backed a slate of candidates with an openly Christian bias who were committed to carrying out God's will from the bench ... and promptly saw each one of them get trounced in yesterday's election: Four incumbent judges were headed to easy victories over a slate of challengers who were backed by a group of...

I've already written a few posts about Better Courts Now, the right-wing group that is seeking to get judges with a Christian bias elected to the courts in California, and eventually nationwide, and has endorsed a slate of candidates who are vowing to carry out God's will if elected to the bench. But it wasn't until I just watched this piece on the group from Fox 5 in San Diego that I recognized Better Courts Now's founder: The organization was founded by Don Hamer who passed away shortly thereafter and the group has since been taken over by Brian Hendry. But I... MORE >

When Better Courts Now was launched back in March, its stated goal was to see right-wing judges elected "across San Diego County and eventually America." For now, the group is focusing on California and has, in recent weeks, been making it clear that they are not looking to support merely conservative judges, but Christian judges who will carry out God's will on the bench. The election is tomorrow and pastor Brian Hendry, who is running the group, really wants to make their goal clear: "We've always been involved in the political realm, in believing that too often...

A few months back, I wrote a post about a new right-wing group that had formed in California for the purpose of taking control of the state's court system. Many of those involved had been highly active in the Prop. 8 fight and saw this new effort, called Better Courts Now, as a way of making sure that issues like Prop. 8 never succeed in the courts by "unifying the moral vote" and electing judges with a right-wing agenda. Well, the election for state judges in California takes place on June 8 and Better Courts Now has rolled out its slate of candidates: A group of... MORE >

A few weeks ago we noted that Jim Garlow had been tapped to head Newt Gingrich's organization, Renewing American Leadership, where he will focus on getting pastors involved in cultural and social issues: Much of what Garlow will be focusing on includes re-educating pastors about their moral and ethical responsibility to speak out on cultural issues impacting their flocks and their families. He said too many pastors have strayed from the historical context of when the pulpit was the main communicating point for social issues. “I think most people realize the Bible has a lot to say about...

VA Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says he will sue if Congress passes health care reform. Pastor Don Hamer, founder of the right-wing "Better Courts Now" campaign, died of a heart attack yesterday.

Several Religious Right activists and California state legislators have unveiled a new effort to take control of the court system "across San Diego County and eventually America" via elections through a new organization called "Better Courts Now", arguing that Proposition 8 would not have even been necessary if the state had the proper judges: Assemblyman Joel Anderson, R-La Mesa, and one of his predecessors from the 77th Assembly District are among those appearing in videos for a new Chula Vista-based group that is urging conservatives to elect local judges who value...
