Politicizing
I sent the following with my petition.

"While we respect religious freedom, it is unfair and unconstitutional for the courts of our nation to impose a particular brand of religious beliefs on its people. Religion is a free and personal choice and should not be infused into political agenda. America was founded on the need for free religion. Appointing a justice that will color all decisions with a religious morals without account for the myriad other religions available is callous, unacceptable and a ghastly practice. Taking actions such as that would bring us closer to the exact tyranny America fought against in the revolutionary war."

I may be not entirely accurate in my assumption above, but I'm worried. I'm pleased that Bush has promised to consult the Senate for nominees.

I'm not sure you fully understand the process of appointing Supreme Court Justices. It goes as follows:
President selects a candidate as hardline republican as himself. President tells Senate committee that they had better approve the candidate or else god will smite them.

Scenario 1: Senate approves candidate. -> Apocalypse.
Scenario 2: Senate does not approve candidate. President selects an even worse candidate than before and tells Senate that the next one will make Pat Robertson look like a good idea. Senate approves second candidate, but not before wetting themselves. -> Apocalypse.
