As we noted last week, Federal Judge Janice Rogers Brown warned students at Harding University in Arkansas that Christianity is under attack in America from “narrow positivism, moral relativism and the totalitarian reign of the radical multiculturalist.”
Not surprisingly, this sort of rhetoric was music to the ears of Vision America’s Rick Scarborough:
Judge Janice Rogers Brown, of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, recently gave a speech at Harding University that deserves an enthusiastic amen from every Christian in the land.
An African-American from California, who came from an impoverished background, Janice Rogers Brown has thrown down the gauntlet to the ACLU, Americans United for Separation of Church and State and the rest of their ilk.
God willing, someday I’ll write about Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown. Whether or not that day ever comes will depend on what Christians do between now and Election Day 2008. If Hillary Clinton takes the oath of office in 2009, if the Senate remains in liberal hands, the next nominee for the high court will be another Ruth Bader Ginsburg or David Souter, rather than a true judge of Brown’s caliber.
So impressed was Vision America with Brown’s speech that they are encouraging activists to “send a note of encouragement and thanks to Judge Brown.”
