The Family Research Council put together three “Justice Sunday” rallies in 2005-2006 to promote Bush’s judicial nominees, rallies staged in churches and “simulcast” on Christian television, and featuring Religious Right all-stars like James Dobson, Jerry Falwell, Phyllis Schlafly, and more.
Apparently the group is planning another such rally, this time on marriage. In an FRC “Prayer Team” message, FRC President Tony Perkins writes:
FRC is planning two major events this fall to motivate and equip Christians and pro-family Americans – The Washington Briefing (2006 Values Voter Summit), and a nationwide simulcast originating from Boston, MA, to help voters understand the importance of the marriage issue. Your prayers for us and these events would be much appreciated.
The Values Voter Summit, scheduled for September, will showcase many of the usual right-wing heavyweights, including Dobson, Gary Bauer, Ann Coulter, Paul Weyrich and many more, as well as Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tennessee) and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. We’ll let you know when we hear more about the simulcast.
