FRC’s Tony Perkins: Obama Promised A Jurist, Picked A Legislator For SCOTUS

The Family Research Council, one of the biggest Christian Right activist groups in Washington, has released a statement from the group’s president Tony Perkins, harshly criticizing Sonia Sotomayor:

“President Obama has chosen a nominee with a compelling personal story over a judicial pick with a solid constitutional judicial philosophy. A compelling personal story is no substitute for allegiance to the Constitution and its sound application to public life.

President Obama promised us a jurist committed to the ‘rule of law,’ but, instead, he appears to have nominated a legislator to the Supreme Court.
