And don’t forget, “Just Us” Sunday begins in just a few hours:
Two Rivers Baptist Church in Donelson, is hosting the evangelical rally on religion and the Supreme Court on Sunday.
Organizers say they want to educate people about judicial matters.
“It’s great to have both points of view, but what we’re trying to do is wake people up to how important judges are in all of our lives,” said George Uribe, Justice Sunday producer.
The event is a follow-up to the first Justice Sunday, held in April at a mega-church in Louisville, Kentucky. At that event, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist called for an end to filibusters of judicial nominees.
At Justice Sunday II, other well known political figures including House Majority Leader Tom DeLay will speaking to a crowd of 3,000 in person and to many more watching the telecast on stations throughout the country.
But not all churches in town agree with the message behind the rally.
An event aimed at countering the message of Justice Sunday II will be held at the Cathedral of Praise Church. Bishop Jerry L. Maynard said several churches decided to organize “Community of Faith and Unity” after hearing that Justice Sunday II was going to take place in Nashville. They believe Justice Sunday blurs the line that separates church and state.
Personally, I can’t wait to hear what Tom DeLay will have to say.
Or maybe I can.
