Anti-Christians for Filibusters?

This weekend was Bill Frist's prime time show to celebrate with Christians everywhere their religious opposition to the judicial filibuster. I don't know why it's such a big news item; everyone knows that Christians hate judicial filibusters.

I believe the first such celebration was 1133 when Cardinal Bertucci Prego gathered his bishops to declare the importance of ramming through ideologues as judges to inflict great miseries against the godless masses who refuse to accept the blessing of God's grace.

Later in the new world, Cotton Mather is said to successfully eliminate filibusters in Salem to help expedited the trial and executions of the huge backlog of witches, who were annoying everyone and lower property values by their independence from men and keeping of cats.

And of course, there was all the talk in the 90's to eliminate judicial filibusters during Clinton's presidency, so much so Senate republicans choose other procedural tactics to block 19% of nominees. And while GWBush has had 95% of his nominees approved, Senate Republicans, with a mandate from God, tirelessly work to abolish this parliamentary evil. I think Deuteronomy 18:20 says it best:
But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
This is why we are on missions in Iraq and Afganistan to limit extreme religious influence on their new democratic governments. Extreme religious influence: good; Wrong religion: bad.

I still fondly recall the day I repented of my sins and became a Fristian.
