People of WHICH faith?

UGH! I am ill over Senators Frist and Santorum and their 'nuKular option.' As you probably know, the plan is to change the rules of the Senate to eliminate the filibuster - that is eliminate excess debate so that our Federal Courts can be packed with the 'right' kind of Judges. This plan had kinda lost momentum a few weeks ago, but now it's all but a sure thing. And to add insult to injury, the right wing noise machine is making this a battle over religion and faith. In other words, if you're against their plan, your part of the radical secularists waging a war on people of faith. But people of which faith?

Richard Cohen at the Washington Post does a much better job with this one than I ever could. Read his editorial here.

So, you know, it's not a crime to be a secular citizen (yet), it just means your rights don't matter as much as those of (the right) people of faith.
