Operation: Pat Robertson Freedom!

Background Info: I believe that most folks are familiar with avengelist Pat Robertson's prayer campaign against the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). In case you are unaware of the program, I'll provide a few details here, and you can also check out CBN's page for Operation Supreme Court Justice. Now Pat Robertson started requesting prayers for certain Supreme Court Justices as far back as 1996, but the actual campaign did not officially kick off until July 2003. Shortly after Robertson's announcement, People for the American Way released their own press release, critical of the cleric's plan. An Interfaith Campaign: I propose an Interfaith campaign to counter-balance Robertson's naive extremism. Hey, it's all freedom of speech, right? Maybe I'll work on an actual home page for the campaign, and it will be a send-up of Pat's own site. In the meanwhile, check out this nifty banner ("loosely" based on the header graphic for the page describing Robertson's own -- and in my opinion, misguided -- prayer request):
Operation Pat Robertson Freedom Banner -- Tell Pat to SHUT IT!
And remember:
People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them. --Dave Barry, author and columnist (1947- )
