Frist urges judicial respect at conservative Christian anti-filibuster event

[JURIST] Senate majority leader Bill Frist, in a taped statement to be aired Sunday evening, urged [Frist statement transcript] conservatives to recognize that judges "deserve respect, not retaliation no matter how they rule," and defended his actions to stop Democrats from blocking conservative judicial nominations. FRC Action [advocacy website], the lobbying arm of the Family Research Council [FRC mission statement], and Focus on the Family Action [FOFA backgrounder; FOFA Stop Judicial Tyranny website], will host a live nationwide television simulcast to be aired in churches around the country. The event is titled "Justice Sunday:, The Filibuster Against People of Faith." The groups hope to encourage Senate votes on conservative judges currently awaiting nominations to the federal courts.
