New Jersey Senator Confronts Twisted Christian Hate Speech

Sen. Lautenberg blasts Robertson, calls on Frist to condemn remarks (Raw Story)

Dear Senator Frist,

As I am sure you are aware by now, during an appearance on last Sunday’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, the Reverend Pat Robertson commented that federal judges posed a greater threat to our country than “bearded terrorists who fly planes into buildings.”

I have sent a letter to Reverend Robertson calling on him to apologize publicly to the families who lost loved ones on September 11th, as well as to the families of those who have been killed serving their country in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The almost constant assaults on our federal judges by the radical right of the Republican Party has now caused one of its most prominent spokesmen to claim judges, not terrorists, are the number one threat to this country. I hope you will join me in condemning such harmful and heated language and call on Reverend Robertson to publicly apologize to every family who has lost a loved one to terrorism. Your silence on this matter would send a resounding signal to the entire country that the radical right controls the leadership of the Republican Party.
