"Having sharpened their knives on Charles Pickering and D. Brooks Smith, Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee turn [today] to Priscilla Owen, President Bush's nominee for the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. The accomplished judge had better wear her battle armor," the Wall Street Journal says.

Get ready to lose another of Bush's appointees, folks.
..........couldn't find anything there in his Biography. I guess FAITH is not an important guiding principle in his life.
She has voted leftist (pro-abortion) Democrat her entire life and will continue to do so. Because the Democrats are "for the little guy" (her words). She was a teenager in the Depression, so I guess that explains some of it. And in her eyes "they're [politicians] all alike".
Moral relativism works for Democrats, because moral relativism always works in favor of the immoral.
Twelfth on the list of "Herod's Heroes" is the Democratic senator from Vermont Patrick Leahy. As an ally of satan through his uncompromising pro-abortion stance, he is enabling lucifer to "destroy both soul and body in hell." Through his actions he has become an enemy of God and the Roman Catholic Church. This is not a political statement on Leahy, but rather a moral statement; one he and his bishops should take very, very seriously.
Senator Leahy, born in Montpelier, Vermont in 1940, has a long history of Catholic education from his early years to St. Michael's College in Colchester, Vermont and then receiving his law degree from the Jesuit Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. Evidently his classmate Bill Clinton's ideology influenced him more than the Catholic Doctrine he should be upholding.
He is now in his fifth term as Vermont's Senator and we call on him to come to his senses. Here is a man, who has worked passionately to fight breast cancer and introduce The Innocence Protection Act of 2001. With that kind of agenda, you would think he would be solidly on the side of Pro Life. But, noooo, he would rather subscribe to his party's culture of death. Don't you see a paradox in his causes? We would hope he will see the obvious link to increased breast cancer and abortion. We would hope he cares just as much for the innocent child in the womb as he does about the hardened criminal.
As one of the senior members of the Senate and his party, Leahy could do so much good, yet there have been no fruits because, through his action and record, he has steadily shown a disdain for the teachings of the Catholic Church and her mandate of upholding life in all stages. Though he voted to ban partial-birth abortion, he has still shown an alarming consistency in voting for and legislating pro-abortion measures that empower the culture of death. He will have to answer to God for these transgressions against Christ's innocent ones as Jesus says in today's Gospel in Matthew 25: 45, "'Amen I say to you, as long as you did not do it for one of these least ones, you did not do it for Me.' And these will go into everlasting punishment, but the just into everlasting life."
This group is trying to get Leahy excommunicated...they have an on-line petition.
NOW Opposes Nomination of Priscilla Owen To Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals
July 19, 2002
"Texas Supreme Court Justice Priscilla Owen's penchant for judicial activism may have earned her Bush's nomination to the Fifth Circuit, but it should not win her a seat on the Court of Appeals," said National Organization for Women (NOW) President Kim Gandy. "NOW and other supporters of a fair court system are calling on the Senate Judiciary Committee to reject Owen's nomination."
"We've seen Judge Owen use the courtroom to further her narrow beliefs and ideals, going so far as to virtually re-write laws rather than fairly interpret them. The last thing the Fifth Circuit needs is more judges who can't leave their political ideologies at the door," Gandy said. "For example, Owen supports 'stricter interpretation' of the Texas law requiring girls younger than 18 to inform their parents before obtaining an abortion. In every case that came before the Texas Supreme Court last spring in which a young woman sought a bypass of the parental notification law, Judge Owen voted against granting the bypass."
"Even White House Counsel and former fellow Texas Supreme Court Justice Alberto Gonzales referred to Owen's extremist position in a reproductive rights case as an 'unconscionable act of judicial activism,'" Gandy said. "Owen has been described as being on the 'far right wing' of the Texas Court, even more to the right than Bush's own appointees to that court when he was governor. A judge whose political zealotry prevents fair application of the law has no place on the federal bench."
"In addition to disdaining women's rights, Owen has demonstrated a commitment to money over morality," Gandy said. "In 1994, Enron endorsed her and contributed $8,600 to her successful Texas Supreme court bid. Two years later, she wrote the majority opinion that reduced Enron's school taxes by $15 million, and according to Texans for Public Justice that court ruled in Enron's favor in five out of six cases. Now a household name for corruption, Enron contributed more money to Owen than any other corporation."
"Women's rights supporters across the country will be contacting the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee via phone, fax and e-mail to demand they reject the Priscilla Owen nomination," Gandy said. "NOW is keeping tabs on how every Senator votes on judicial nominations--and their commitment to women's rights will surely be reflected in women's votes."
