Romney Promising the Religious Right He’ll Appoint Right Wing Judges

Fanatics picking Romney’s judges?

As a Mormon, it’s an uphill climb for Mitt Romney to get the religious right on his side; many of the most influential right wing religious leaders are not shy at all about calling Mormonism a “cult.”

One tactic Romney is using to get over this problem: promising to appoint far right theocratic judges to the Supreme Court.

This is not just idle talk; as we noted last year, one of Romney’s chief judicial advisers is none other than extreme right wing ideologue Robert Bork.

And today Right Wing Watch shines some light on the religious fanatics who are apparently deeply involved with picking Romney’s judges: Romney Successfully Wooing the Religious Right With Promises of Right Wing Judges.

On today’s episode of “WallBuilders Live,” David Barton and Rick Green invited Jordan Sekulow, who worked for Romney back in 2008, to make the case as to why the Religious Right can and should support Romney.  While Green was skeptical at first, Barton needed no convincing because Jay Sekulow (Jordan’s father) was going to be involved in picking Romney’s judges and that was all he needed to hear:

This has not been a hard thing for evangelicals to get over and support Romney and it shouldn’t be a hard thing. When Romney ran four years ago, he wasn’t my first choice but the reason I never got really worried about Romney was Jay Sekulow. And I tell you he has been very intimately involved in helping get folks like Alito and Roberts on the court. And four years ago, I heard that Sekulow is the guy that Romney has tapped to choose his judges and I said “that’s it.” I don’t have any trouble with Romney because Isaiah 1:26 tells me the righteousness of nation is determined, not by the legislature, but by its judges. And if Romney’s got folks like Sekulow picking his judges, I can live with that in a heartbeat.
