All You Need to Know About Your Judicial Candidates

The Center for Reclaiming America for Christ has launched an electoral tool called “Christian Votes” that is dedicated to “reminding Christians that voting is more than just a civic duty; it is a spiritual responsibility.” 

In an email sent to supporters, the Center for Reclaiming America for Christ says

As November 7 approaches, will provide non-partisan voter guides for state and national races, including judicial races.

Christian Votes does indeed provide voter guides, though the only one currently available is for the Florida primary election, which was held last week.  But its guide (PDF) does provide information on judicial candidates, though it is not necessarily of the sort that will help anyone determine just what sort of judicial philosophy the candidates hold since most of the questions don’t seem have much to do with judicial philosophy at all

Are you married?
Do you have children?
Member of a church/synagogue?
Had a life changing experience with Jesus Christ?
Believe the word of God (Bible) is inerrant?
Regularly attend church/synagogue?

If you want to know a judicial candidate’s views on, say, the 14th Amendment … well, you are just going to have to look elsewhere.  But if you only care that a judge has had “a life changing experience with Jesus Christ” and “believes the word of God (Bible) is inerrant,” then CRA’s voter guide will certainly be a handy tool.
