Interfaith Alliance: "Reject Judge Pryor for Fed Court"

Check this excerpt from the Interfaith Alliance press release today, but read the whole thing as well...And much more detail here ...

"Today, a diverse group of organizations amplified the growing national opposition to the nomination of William Pryor to a lifetime seat on the U. S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. Hosted by The Interfaith Alliance, organizations, some of whom have seldom if ever opposed a judicial nominee, came together to urge the Senate to reject Pryor, who they say would be a judicial activist based on his stated contempt for the Supreme Court and his extremist views of two centuries of American jurisprudence.

The Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy, President of The Interfaith Alliance moderated a telephone panel discussion that included Phyllis Snyder, President, National Council of Jewish Women (www.ncjw.org); Christopher Barron, Political Director, Log Cabin Republicans (www.logcabin.org); Jim Ward, President, ADA Watch/National Coalition for Disability Rights (www.ADAwatch.org), and David M. Smith, Vice President of Policy, Human Rights Campaign (www.hrc.org).

Objecting to the Pryor nomination, the speakers cited evidence that the nominee stands far outside of the mainstream of American legal precedent. The speakers agreed his confirmation would be detrimental to religious liberty, human rights, women’s rights, rights of the disabled, consumers, workers, and the environment."
